Discussion

So what about your findings? Discuss it. 
This section puts things in perspective and describes the significance of the previous sections.

  • Bring out what is already known about the topic.
  • Keep the readers’ interest by stating why your study is unique.
  • Bring in references that support as well as contradict your argument and discuss the disparity.
  • Be specific with recommendations.
  • When you say further research is required, specify what sort of research.
  • Scrutinize for redundant sentences.
  • Do not try to fit data to suit your original hypothesis/desired conclusions; retest your hypothesis if required.
  • Mention acknowledgements if any, below the discussion.
  • Maintain the prescribed word count; an approximate calculation is: discussion=1/3 total length of manuscript=1/3(introduction+method+result+discussion)
