My order is to write a systematic review article (15 pages around 4125 words) on the topic of (Work-Life Balance of Women Entrepreneurs : A Systematic Review) following PRISMA systematic literature review check list (attached). It must be professionally organized and written.
The purpose of this paper is to review and conceptually explain the work-life balance of women entrepreneurs to exhibit how women have contributed to their entrepreneurial success by maintaining work-life balance including the challenges that the women entrepreneurs faced in their work-life balance, the findings of reviewed studies, points of similarity and difference between these studies, in order to identify future research directions for academic in the field. Selected articles relating to this area were reviewed using secondary data from the years 2010 to 2021.
To achieve this aim, a comprehensive systematic literature review will be used to investigate, identify, critically assess, and incorporate the findings of all relevant literature reviews of the Women Entrepreneurs and Work-Life Balance. The Review Article will cover the following points:
• Introduction: A Gender-Sensitive Analysis of Entrepreneurs’ Work-Life Balance.
• Theoretical Foundations of Women’s Entrepreneurship and Work-Life Balance
• Research on Women Entrepreneurs’ Work-Life Balance
• Factors Influencing Women Entrepreneurs’ Work-Life Balance
• Challenges that face Women Entrepreneurs and recommendations to face challenges of WLB
• The relationship between WLB issues and overall perception of WLB
• Work Life Balance (WLB) Issues of Women Entrepreneurs
The review article must be structured based on the following outline:
1. Structured Abstract
The abstract should be a total of about 250 words maximum. The abstract should be a single paragraph and should follow the style of structured abstracts with the following headings:
Purpose: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the review.
Methods: Briefly provide a general picture of the methodological approach.
Results: Summarize the article’s main outcomes.
Conclusions: One or two sentences present the conclusion (which is linked to the objectives).
Introduction provides information about the context, indicates the motivation for the review, defines the focus, the research question and explains the text structure. It should include:
Subject background. The general topic, issue, or area of concern is given to illustrate the context.
“Problem”. Trends, new perspectives, gaps, conflicts, or a single problem is indicated.
Motivation/justification. The author’s reason for reviewing the literature, the approach and the organization of the text are described.
Length Between 10% and 20% of the core text (introduction, body, conclusions).
3. Material & Methods
The material and methods section contains for example information about: data sources (e.g. bibliographic databases), search terms and search strategies, selection criteria (inclusion/exclusion of studies), the number of studies screened and the number of studies included, data analysis tools etc. Make sure that data sources are clearly identified. Precision has first priority in the material and methods section.
4. Result/Findings & Discussions
A coherent structuring of the topic is necessary to develop the section structure. Subheadings reflect the organization of the topic and indicate the content of the various sections. Possible criteria for structuring the topic are:
models or theories
extent of support for a given thesis
studies that agree with another versus studies that disagree
In writing the findings, cover one idea, aspect or topic per paragraph. Avoid referring to only one study per paragraph; consider several studies per paragraph instead. Frequently link the discussed research findings to the research question stated in the introduction. These links create the thread of coherence in your review article. Link the studies to one another. Compare and discuss these relationships. You may include tables and figures to display novel findings and/or relationships of the variables.
Answer the research question set in the introduction. It should include implications of the findings, interpretations by the authors (kept separate from factual information) and identification of unresolved questions. Make sure to have a clear take home message that integrates the points discussed in the review. Make sure your conclusions are not simply a repeat of the abstract.
6. Directions for future research
Based on unresolved questions, you may suggest studies for future research.
Use APA 7th edition for the references. Make sure that you provide the references both in the body of the article and the reference list at the end.
The review papers and references used must be from high-rank journals
The number of references used is no less than 30 references
