Research Topic Checklist

The semester paper identifies an accounting related issue or topic, critically analyzes all facets of the issue (including different stakeholder(s) perspectives, if applicable), analyzes alternative solutions, and concludes with a persuasive-style recommendation.

The semester paper is a critical thinking assignment and is not a literature review. When brainstorming potential topics, use the following checklist as a guide. A well thought out topic will have all of the following:

  • Is the topic accounting-related: financial, managerial, cost, governmental, tax, international (IFRS), forensic, not-for-profit, or audit and assurance services?
  • Is the topic a specific issue or problem? Narrow topics are best. Avoid those that are general or basic.
  • Is the topic a complex, controversial, or debatable issue?
  • Can I write a fifteen to twenty-five page paper on this topic?
  • Does the topic have multiple solutions, or recommendations? Can I fully analyze these solutions in my paper? An ideal topic should not have one correct answer, but instead have several possible solutions.
  • Will I be able to find enough nonauthoritative sources and authoritative guidance (for example, FASB Codification, tax laws, GASB statements, and others) to be able to write a quality paper?
  • Is the topic conducive to a persuasive-style paper? Will I be able to create a compelling argument or recommendation that I can use to try to convince the reader, and will my sources support that recommendation?
