Writing a journal article


The results section of a (non-essay) paper is where the findings are presented. This is typically done in past tense, and without any references to other work. You simply summarise key points from your figures and tables, and explain additional findings in the text. You provide no interpretation of findings. The results section is purely descriptive.

Possible exercises:
  • List your results, prioritise them, and decide which to include in your paper
  • How can you best communicate your particular results: in text, tables, or figures? (Figures work best for many readers.)
