Results are general statements that interpret the raw data obtained from experimental measurements. You should write well the section. Why? The result section is meat of a paper, the most important part of a study.
Sometime the Results and Discussion are combined into one section. This is particularly useful when preliminary data must be discussed to show why subsequent data were taken. Whatever format you adopt, the following guidelines should be observed:
1. Emphasize only important observations that will answer the question or solve the problem raised in your Introduction Section. Remember that this is not the place to publicize your research skill.
2. Be selective about your results. Too much detail can burden and even confuse reader, who might the lose interest. Detail data belong in a paper supplemental-material section or in some data bank external to the paper.
3. Structure the text so that the emphasis is on the results. Ancillary information concerning materials and methods, legend for figures, titles for table, etc., should receive less emphasis.
4. Do not include information that properly belongs in other section of the paper such as Materials and Methods.
5. Do not repeat the legends for figures or titles of tables in the text.
6. Explain in the text only those illustrations and tables whose significance is not obvious to the reader. Important features that are ready apparent from the illustrations and tables should be pointed out in the text. Do not, however, repeat the data presentation in the illustrations and tables.
9. Be sure that the text, illustration, and tables are consistent with one another.
10. Analyze your data by statistical methods, if appropriate.
11. Be honest. Do not omit data that do not support your hypothesis and conclusion or do not answer the research question.
10. Use the past tense of verbs in the Results section, except when referring to figures and tables. Use the present tense when referring to figures and tables.
11. Terms beginning a sentence are nearly always spelled out. A sentence should not begin with an abbreviated term, unless the term is customarily abbreviated.
12. A sentence should not begin with a number or symbol. A numeral or symbol beginning a sentence should be spelled out or the sentence rewritten.
Wrong: 12 subjects were tested
Right: Twelve subjects were tested
13. Number in a sentence should not begin with a decimal point. Decimal fractions less than 1 should be written with the numeral 0 before the decimal point.
