The length of the parts varies from paper to paper and usually established by the writer.

  6. The Discussion • Explanation of the results of the research as well as personal thoughts is represented in this part. • The key here is to address every point separately and give clear information about the problem. • Also the writer should remember that the points must be directly connected to the main idea of the paper in order to be successful.

The Conclusion • Final part refers to the findings of the paper and builds up conclusions about the thesis statement. • The size of the part depends on the length of the main part but usually consists of several paragraphs. • Some people think that the conclusion is the main part of research paper because it reveals the importance of the research as well as recommends new ways of resolving the problem or issue.
