Write a paragraph or two of commentary for each discovery in your investigation. Declare your discovery. Tell the reader how the discovery is essential or related to the goal and emphasis of your research. Examine your findings in relation to the literature. Consider any possible biases in your data that might influence the interpretation of the results.
Now, write a short conclusion stating what you think the main take-away messages are from this exercise and why they're important. Try not to repeat information given in the discoveries section as the conclusion.
This concludes our introduction to scientific writing. In the next lesson we will discuss how scientists actually carry out their investigations.
How to Compose a Findings Report
The results chapter will most likely make up the majority of your work.
A. Findings Summary:
A research summary is a professional document that summarizes your study to a potential audience. The primary goal of a research summary is to give the reader with a concise overview of the whole study. A research summary should be written in an engaging style and include all the relevant information about the study's aim, methods, findings and conclusions.
Research summaries are usually between 300-500 words long and include several key components:
These components are not always present in every research summary but they provide readers with a good understanding of what the study is all about. When writing a research summary, it is important to keep in mind that it will be read by others who may not be familiar with all the details of your study. Therefore, it is essential to describe your methods clearly and answer any questions that may arise during interpretation of results.
Research summaries are useful tools for getting your work published quickly and accurately.
You do a number of crucial things towards the end of your report: Summarize the key points you made in your introduction and literature review. Review (briefly) the research methodologies and/or design that you used. Repeat your results (in shortened form). Explain how your findings relate to the topic under investigation.
You should keep these ideas in mind as you plan out your conclusion: Conclusion paragraphs should include three elements: a summary statement, a call to action, and an explanation of why the call to action is necessary. A conclusion paragraph may only contain one element (a summary statement), but it must still include all three components mentioned above.
In addition, conclusions should provide a clear indication of what's to come in future reports or studies related to the subject investigated in the current report.
Conclusions are often overlooked areas of academic papers because they're assumed to be self-explanatory or unnecessary since the main goal of the paper is usually seen as having been accomplished with the results presented in the body of the paper. However, conclusions play an important role in persuading readers about the value of the paper and encouraging them to read further if they are interested in following up on its findings.
Therefore, even though conclusions are rarely taken into account when evaluating papers, they can have a huge impact on the acceptance of the paper by peers and administrators.
Remember that producing a summary necessitates familiarity with the material, which can only be achieved by multiple readings. Using brief phrases, identify and formulate the major themes. Creating lengthier phrases by rephrasing the core themes into different words or sentences helps to distinguish them even more clearly from one another.
The aim of a summary is to provide a general idea of what the document is about while still being concise enough to be read comfortably. To achieve this, it is helpful to think about how you would describe the topic in three sentences or less. This will allow you to include both relevant detail and a clear view of the overall theme.
When writing your summary, it is important to be as accurate as possible. This includes including all aspects of the document's content so that readers are not left out anything significant. It is also useful to keep in mind how difficult it will be for others to read over your shoulder; therefore, no information should be missed out!
Finally, a good summary should catch the reader's interest enough to make him/her want to continue reading. If you can accomplish this, you have succeeded in creating a successful summary!
