It is important to include a contextual analysis of the data by linking it to research questions. Share only relevant data and findings that are related to the purpose of the study; too much data can overwhelm the reader. In most cases, it is appropriate to provide basic comparisons between the results of your study and those of other studies, but it is essential to know exactly what the journal wants to include in the report of the research findings. A logical approach to organizing the findings section (Step) will help you tell a logical story about the results of your research as you explain, highlight, offer analysis, and summarize the information needed for readers to understand the discussion section that follows.
It is important to note here that “finding” does not always mean “objective information”, because conductive research is based on results and implications rather than on measurable facts. The first paragraph of a findings section usually reaffirms research questions or aims to refocus the reader's attention, and it's always advisable to summarize the key findings at the end of the section, providing a smooth intellectual transition to the interpretation and debate that follow in most research articles. It may be best to present all the relevant findings and then explain them along with your analysis, or to explain the results of each trial or test immediately after reporting, so that the material is more clear and understandable to readers. The guidelines will generally describe the specific requirements for the results or findings section, and published articles will provide good examples of successful approaches.
However, tables and figures must also be self-explanatory, so their design must include all the definitions and other information necessary for the reader to understand the findings they intend to show without returning to the text. Tables of various styles and figures of all kinds are used to present research results, such as graphics, maps and photographs, but consult the journal's guidelines for instructions on the number of visual aids allowed, the design elements needed and the preferred formats for numbering, labeling and placement in the manuscript. Optimize and clarify your report, especially if it is long and complex, by using subtitles that will help you avoid excessive and peripheral details when writing and also help the reader to understand and remember your findings. If you build your tables and figures before writing the findings section, they can serve as focal points to help you tell a clear and informative story about your findings and avoid unnecessary repetition.
