re-conceptualize the notion of fraud
broaden the context for its analysis
"examine the technologies of fraud"
: Semantic network analysis

Published between 1995 and 2016
Stored by EBSCO collections
Include "fraud" or "fraudulent" in the metadata (title, abstract, keywords, tags)
: fraud in science;
white collar crime, crime in general, ethics, consumer fraud, Internet fraud, fraud prevention and investigation, Medicaid fraud;
Rising and then declining
: identity theft and computer security;
: data mining and statistics;
Analysis of 50 most frequent synsets identifies five groups:
Confirms previous observations:
under-employing the behavioral perspective
almost no interest in understanding of how the actual fraud is carried out
Shows signs of expanding the scope
of fraud-focused research to organizational and societal level
Giant Connected Component (GCC) of 681 nodes
A big stride toward understanding of current interests in the research community regarding fraud issues.
Possible next steps:
Building a map of accounting journals only
Other keywords: "Cybercrime"
Other data sources: practitioner oriented leterature
each connection = at least 3 co-occurences in the same article

The Fraud Diamond
Fraud-related research under-employs the behavioral perspective and does not look into the technical details of fraud activities.
Slight increase in the interest to fraud issues on organizational and societal level
Accounting/Audit reseach dominates the fraud related literature. Strong connection to Ethics.
Acc/Audit literature - IT and Cybersecurity:
insider trading, credit cards, eCommerce
Identifying the trends and gaps in fraud scholarship, and proposing directions for future research.
Suffolk University, Oct 26 2017
Semantic distances of the Acc&Audit and Cybersecurity from other clusters and from each other
Cybersecurity is used with terms from other clusters slighly more
Acc&Audit becomes more isolated
Cybersecurity slowly intergrates with orher disciplines
Audit becomes more isolated
