4. Result and Discussion

The results and discussion contain the results of research findings and the scientific discussion. Write scientific findings obtained from the results of research that has been done but must be supported by adequate data. The scientific findings referred to here are not the research data obtained. These scientific findings must be explained scientifically including:

a. What scientific findings were obtained?

b. Why does that happen?

c. Why are variable trends like that?

All of these questions must be explained scientifically, not only descriptive, if necessary supported by adequate basic scientific phenomena. In addition, it should be explained also the comparison with the results of other researchers who are almost the same topic. Research results and findings must be able to answer the research hypotheses in the introduction. Each equation is written in the middle of the column and given a number written in brackets and placed at the end of the right margin. Equations must be written using Equation Editor in MS Word or Open Office (Primack, 1983).

  2. Ensure that the review has focused on aspects that are able to build broad perspectives and great interest for readers from various disciplines.
  3. Do not just draw conclusions from existing literature, but also provide critical discussion that is scientifically capable of supporting the latest concepts in the field.
  4. Don't just take part in the final project, thesis or dissertation!
  5. Give interesting infographics and tables that contain conclusions from a variety of complete literature so as to explain the technological concept or mechanism of the articles that are reviewed clearly
  6. Provide industrial cases and the application of technology or mechanism if available
  7. Avoid taking pictures from other articles and should redraw the picture in a different form if possible

Writing a bibliography using a reference management application needs to be checked one by one so that all quality sentences.
