  4. Develop your argument
  5. Use relevant evidence
  6. Develop your academic writing style
  7. Think how to present your work

1. Understanding your topic

  • The topics are intentionally broad
  • You need to narrow down your topic to focus on a particular aspect or trend
  • Questions to ask yourself:
  • Why did I choose this topic?
  • What difference my research report would make for people with interests in this area?
  • Can I see any new/alternative solutions to the problem?
  • Can I predict future developments or trends in the subject area?

Interpreting the topic

  • Make sure, to interpret the topic within the framework of the EBECS Learning Outcomes, i.e.:
  • How technology affects business models
  • What opportunities new technological developments can bring to the way of doing business
  • How businesses can respond to current and future challenges with the help of technology
  • What challenges technology itself might introduce to the business

2. Planning your report structure

  • Abstract: provides short overview of the entire report with main ideas and findings
  • Background: provides introduction to the problem domain, current views and findings, i.e. “state-of-the-art” on the subject
  • Problem scope and research questions: identifies main focus of your research
  • Discussion: considers main arguments in support of your research question(s); introduces possible counter-arguments
  • Recommendations: makes resulting recommendations for action / trend predictions
  • Conclusion: summarising your main idea and findings
  • References and Bibliography

3. Research your subject

  • Select acknowledged authorities rather than self-proclaimed ones:
  • Peer-reviewed academic publications
  • Impartial independent analytical reports
  • Case studies
  • Cite unbiased and objective sources, avoid motivated opinions
  • Use a recently published report over the older one
  • When possible, select an authority known to your audience
  • Keep careful track of used sources from the beginning
