Every means value of the data should be given standard deviation. All data given in result should be presented in the tables or graph, although some results may be given solely in the text.

Discussion can be done by comparing results/data reported with other research results previously published. Focused on the interpretation of the results rather than a repetition of the results/data. Similarities, differences, and the uniqueness of the findings should be highlighted.


The conclusions should not be a summary of the results and discussion but the implications of the research findings. Based on the findings and discussion, conclusion should be clearly stated. It should be written as paragraph, not as a list.
