Quantitative Journal – Article Review – 3-4 pages
You will review quantitative research.  The topic is up to you as long as you choose a peer-reviewed, academic research piece.  I suggest choosing a topic that is at least in the same family as your expected dissertation topic so that you can start viewing what is out there.  There are no hard word counts or page requirements as long as you cover the basic guidelines.  You must submit original work, however,  and a paper that returns as a large percentage of copy/paste to other sources will not be accepted.  (Safe Assign will be used to track/monitor your submission for plagiarism. Submissions with a Safe Assign match of more than 2% will not be accepted.) 
Please use APA formatting and include the following information:

Introduction/Background:  Provide context for the research article.  What led the author(s) to write the piece? What key concepts were explored? Were there weaknesses in prior research that led the author to the current hypothesis or research question?
Methodology:  Describe how the data was gathered and analyzed.  What research questions or hypotheses were the researcher trying to explore? What statistical analysis was used?
Study Findings and Results:  What were the major findings from the study? Were there any limitations?
Conclusions:  Evaluate the article in terms of significance, research methods, readability and the implications of the results.  Does the piece lead into further study? Are there different methods you would have chosen based on what you read? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the article in terms of statistical analysis and application? (This is where a large part of the rubric is covered.)

Abstract: Social media has transformed the mode of communication globally by providing an
extensive system for exchanging ideas, initiating business contracts, and proposing new professional
ideas. However, there are many limitations to the use of social media, such as misinformation, lack
of effective content moderation, digital piracy, data breaches, identity fraud, and fake news. In
order to address these limitations, several studies have introduced the application of Blockchain
technology in social media. Blockchains can provides transparency, traceability, tamper-proofing,
confidentiality, security, information control, and supervision. This paper is a systematic literature
review of papers covering the application of Blockchain technology in social media. To the best of our
knowledge, this is the first systematic literature review that elucidates the combination of Blockchain
and social media. Using several electronic databases, 42 related papers were reviewed. Our findings
show that previous studies on the applications of Blockchain in social media are focused mainly
on blocking fake news and enhancing data privacy. Research in this domain began in 2017. This
review additionally discusses several challenges in applying Blockchain technologies in social media
contexts, and proposes alternative ideas for future implementation and research.
