Previous: Interpretation (m5)
- Summarise the main findings that are obtained in this work, which form:
If the central question reads like ``can the measurements of this particular reaction be interpreted by that particular model?'', answered it by a conclusion such as ``yes, even quantitatively'', ``only qualitatively'', or ``we still don't know if that model can explain the experimental results''.
- an answer to the central question formulated in the module Central problem
- a brief recapitulation of what has been achieved in the research reported in this article.
If the question is a more experimentally oriented, e.g. ``what are the cross section of these reactions?'', briefly summarise what has been measured and provide a link (carrying labels `Depends on/Is detailed in') to the Results module where the results are given. Furthermore, comment on the results: do they fall in the expected range, are the surprising in some sense?
If there is no clear answer to the central question, the conclusion can be that the results are inconclusive and that further research is needed, for example, because the theory did not apply to the situation at hand and the measurements need a better resolution.
- If any problems related to the central one have been solved in the course of the research, the solutions can be summarised in this module.
- If the target audience is unlikely to be convinced beforehand of the reliability or the relevance of the findings, justify them by summarising the `final judgement' on the reliability and applicability of the research presented in this article in the given situation, and by linking to the appropriate modules for the arguments supporting that final judgement.
- If the central problem is considered through different specific problems addressed in parallel lines of problem-solving, or through the solution of a series of component-problems that form the subsequent steps of the process as a whole, explicitly state the structure how the different lines or components are brought together in this module.
- Link the module Findings to the findings of the problem-solving process that are represented in the Interpretation, where they have been obtained. In addition, link this module to the Methods and Results modules it recapitulates and to the Central problem that is supposed to be solved here, by means of a `depends on/is detailed in' link.
Leads for further research (m6b)
- If any leads for further research related to the research reported in this article have been encountered, suggest the new problems that are to be solved.
- If no definitive solution can be reported in module m6a, then m6b is compulsory: reformulate the problem at hand.. If you reformulate the problem, try to suggest as concretely as possible how the problem might be solved, and/or explicitly state what potential solution has been found to be inadequate.
- If the central problem is not solved, link this module to the inconclusive findings, by a `depends on' link.
