Results and Discussion (500 - 1,500 words)

The results are presented systematically, written without sub-chapters, and written in full first, then the author writes the results of the discussion. The results of the narrative containing information taken from the data do not tell what it is, but tell the meaning of the data or information. For information clarification purposes, the author may add tables, figures, etc. In addition, the results also present the items listed in the research objectives or the results of testing the proposed hypothesis along with every step taken for testing as written in the method section.
The discussion consists of interpreting the results, developing arguments by linking the results, theories, and opinions, including comparisons with the results of previous studies. It is also important to increase the possibility of the results of his research contributing to the development of science. This section does not rewrite the research data.
