  • Introduction or Background — Provide the rationale for your study. Give people an idea of the important research in the area, and the theory and empirical work that lead to your hypothesis. Sufficient background information, definitions and relevant formulas should be used to help the reader understand the nature of the investigation.

  • Conclusions — What important points should we take away from your study? What are the implications for future research?
