  • Mention major findings of the study – the finding should be direct and declarative also avoids data or references.

  • Definition and significance of the findings should be elucidated – the explanation should not be conceited and condescending instead it should be sensible.

  • Find the connection between your findings with previous researcher’s findings – assistance can be provided from the previous studies.

  • All the possible explanation can be considered – by considering more possibilities truth can be discovered with more accuracy.

  • Give importance to the limitations of study – every study has its own limitation including the studies in the best journals have limitation.

  • Recommendations can be provided for future research – the unanswered question is given more attention and it can also be used for future research.
