Abstract

The current paper outlines two applications of ‘Pitching Research’ (Faff, 2015 & 2017a) designed to help readers and researchers better understand and describe academic literature. ‘Reverse Engineering’ is a concept explored by previous student scholars at The University of Queensland (Faff et al. 2017). It has been further investigated in the present paper with a new group of students using a ‘Pitch Sparring’ approach. The ‘400 Word PR Template Tool’ was developed as a new application, designed by the Winter Research Scholar team. In the current paper, six students worked on both applications, as well as the ‘Pitching Tool Template, using a number of existing studies across Accounting, Finance and Management.
