The Results Section
The Results section is the part of a research paper that answers the third of the four questions of Sir Austin Bradford Hill, namely, ‘What did you find’ . It follows the Methods section, which has already answered the question ‘What did you do?’ . It is therefore logical that results of all the steps enumerated in the Methods must be provided, preferably in the same sequence as their description in the Methods. Also, it is expected that all results would have corresponding methods described and that no new data would suddenly appear in the Results section.
