A written text summarizes the previous lecture and recommends further readings on the evidence-based feature of research writing.

Welcome back to “Deconstructing Research Articles.”

We will delve into the results section of research articles, discussing the importance of presenting data effectively. In the scientific community, data is crucial for drawing conclusions and building arguments.

As we briefly mentioned previously, data is not synonymous with results. Researchers should avoid presenting raw data, as most readers may not understand it. Instead, it is essential to present results in an organized, comprehensible manner within research articles. The way results are presented can significantly impact the overall understanding and reception of a study.

Every research article contains results, regardless of whether it follows the I.M.R.D. structure (explaining why, how, what, and so what) or the I.R.C. structure, where results and data hold even more weight. It is vital for researchers to recognize the importance of effectively presenting their results to communicate their findings and contribute to their field of study.
