Results

The results section of a research article provides a summary of the data that was collected and any analytical or statistical approach used to interpret the significance of the gathered information. The results are often presented in both text and tables.

Ask yourself

  • Do the authors provide results for each of their research questions and hypotheses?
  • Do the authors provide a rationale for using the statistical approach they used to analyze the data?
  • Do the authors provide a practical way (such as a table) to present the outcomes and statistical analyses?
  • Examine if a table of outcomes and statistical analyses presents information not provided in the text description.
  • Were there any statistically significant results? What were they?
