Emerging Technologies (Big data and Blockchain) in Accounting and Its Potential in Pandemic

Instruction

The most important parts are;

  • For the most important requirement is that you require to have at least 8 different sources.
  • Sources MUST be a scholarly peer-reviewed academic journal.

You can use 8 resources from what I’ve found, as you can see the attached files. Or you can find more relevant sources based on your own process. Please check the requirement for the sources above.

In addition, I attached my word doc including introduction part. You can start to revise from my introduction (or you can change it, based on your work). Please, have similar tone and overall way of writing consistently with my work.

The structure of the paper should be following;

Research Question: Emerging Technologies (Big data and Blockchain) in Accounting and Its Potential in Pandemic

Introduction

Body 1: Big Data

  • Overview
  • Benefits
  • Limitations

Body 2: Blockchain

  • Overview
  • Benefits
  • Limitations

Body 3: Potential contributions to the pandemic

  • How big data and blockchain can contribute to the pandemic COVID-19. What nature or benefit helps to achieve this? It is important to combine body 1 and 2 to reach the contribution of them in pandemic!

Conclusion

In addition, if you think you can entirely focus on Big data and its analysis, you CAN change the structure of body (Just body 1 & 3). However, body 3 is still required (Big data’s potential contribution to pandemic). In addition, in that case, you must include more detailed information or assertion about it.

This is general information about each part.

Introduction

The introduction is a key element of a literature review. It should identify the topic and its narrowed scope, explain the importance of the topic to your field specifically (keep your target audience in mind), comment on the extent and nature of the sources in the review, and address the purpose of the review (the thesis).  Toward the end of the introduction, you may choose to identify the organization you will use, such as major topics and subtopics.

Since the introduction to a literature review has a great deal to accomplish at the outset, it may take several paragraphs.

Body

In the body of the literature review is where you will draft your research narrative. This is usually sub-divided using subheadings to indicate how you are organizing your sources. Using my example above, I might have subheadings that read “K-12 Educator Use of Technology in the Classroom” and “Undergraduate Educator Use of Technology in the Classroom,” etc. These subheadings make your organizing logic clear and help with readability of the document.

Within each section of your literature review body, there should be substantive commentary on the sources in that section. Here you want to avoid “simple” summary and include “critical” summary along with paraphrase and quotations of your sources. This is where you use the skill of synthesis (see our module) and take care to give your sources proper attribution to avoid plagiarizing. I expect to see a combination of summary, paraphrase, and quotation in each of these sections. What information you pull out from each of your sources is up to you, but it should be clear why that information is relevant to your wider topic. It should also be framed in a critical manner. For instance, instead of saying something like, “Using computers in a K-12 classroom is essential for digital literacy,” you should have sentences which read more like, “Azar et al (2010) argues that having computers in the K-12 classroom is essential for digital literacy; however, Grawl and Constantine (2012) demonstrate the limitations of merely having technology available in the institution for full digital literacy. Both sources neglect to consider how often students have access outside to computers outside of the home.”

Conclusion

The conclusion should revisit your key purpose in writing the literature review and end with your recommendations for future research on this topic. NOTE: Your recommendations for future research should be specific and detailed (as in, something you might do yourself in your studies) and use proposal-style language (persuasive language) to “pitch” your ideas for future research to the reader.
