The second section (50% of your paper, 1200 words) contains your discussion of the content and conclusions of the articles. Here you write what you think and what you conclude from the research presented in the paper. In order to structure this section, you should address the following questions: Is the background information provided by the authors comprehensive and does it explain the need for the research conducted? Are clear objectives of research and testable working hypotheses presented? Are the methods sound and the results convincing? Can you follow and agree with the interpretation and conclusion from the results? Was this research necessary and useful or would it have been better to spend that money on other issues?
