Results and discussion are written in a single unit. The author is not justified to separate the results and discussion, especially in the form of a new chapter. Results and discussion are sharply analyzed and interpreted one by one of the findings enriched with the relevant references from primary sources. The results presented in this section are net results. Data analysis processes such as statistical calculations and hypothesis testing processes are no need to be presented. Only the results of the analysis and the results of hypothesis testing need to be reported. Data should be represented accordingly using suitable tables, pictures, and graphs. All data presented should be supplemented with clear captions.


Conclusions include a summary of findings and future research recommendation. Conclusions emphasize the novelty of the discovery or development carried out, written briefly, concisely, and clearly. Future research exploration may be suggested for further research to be developed by other researchers and can be conveyed briefly and clearly in a new paragraph of the conclusion.
