However, interpretation/discussion section(s) are often too long and verbose.
Is there material that does not contribute to one of the elements listed above?
Your results should be clearly defined and discussed in the context of your topic. You should place your analysis in a broader context, and highlight the implications (regional, global, etc.) of your work.
We are looking for a well-reasoned line of argument, from your initial question, compilation of relevant evidence, setting data in a general/universal context, and finally making a judgment based on your analysis.
You can't write a good introduction until you know what the body of the paper says.
Consider writing the introductory section(s) after you have completed the rest of the paper, rather than before.It should bring together and demonstrate the skills of summarising, paraphrasing, synthesis, critical analysis, comparing and contrasting, citing and in-text referencing, a reference list, appropriate writing structure, and evidence of the writer’s proofreading and editing before submission. The list should include a short title for each figure but not the whole caption. The list should include a short title for each table but not the whole caption.The writer must make it crystal clear to the reader which statements are observation and which are interpretation.In most circumstances, this is best accomplished by physically separating statements about new observations from statements about the meaning or significance of those observations.You should draw the reader in and make them want to read the rest of the paper.The next paragraphs in the introduction should cite previous research in this area.The literature review starts with an introduction or series of introductory paragraphs which provides for the reader the content being covered, the structure or how the review is organised, and the delimitation (or boundaries) of the subject matter to be covered (mentions what is outside the scope of the study).The literature review should begin with an introduction to the topic, and should demonstrate a logical progression of ideas in terms of its structure, the links between sections, and the conclusions reached.The literature review aims to compare and contrast the thinking, ideologies, concepts and thoughts in 'the field' of a particular subject area.It is a chance for the student not to simply summarise this, but to be able to compare, contrast, 'reflect upon' and indeed 'critically analyse' 'the literature' whilst also being able to layer their own thoughts and opinions on the importance of this literature into the writing.
