    The results sction is a challenging task. I dont know about you guys. Maybe the problem i have is that am dealing with a topic that does not have enough literarture and to make conclusions out of the articles is not easy. I really have problem with my study populatiojn. advise

    It is difficult to compare apples with pears. What you are attempting to do is synthesizing available information and trying to make sense of it. If not much has been written then only report on those that you have. It does not mean because there is limited information that it is not good – the challenge lies in how we present this information

    “Learning is a continuous process” Whoever said this has my full support. Initially, when i thought of writing of results, the only picture that would come in mind is of prose writing where by you end up with several paragraphs. To be sincere through this article and mainly the results part, i have learned to represent a lot of information in a simple manner through a table. it may seam little but its a lot. And by the way, isn’t this the same idea of making a whole thesis to become an article.

    Yes learning is a continuous process. I still find I learn everytime I read through the draft articles. hope to see your reflection on the process so far
