What is included in a research report?
The structure of a research report varies depending on the project, but most reports include the following sections:
- A description of the project, including known information about the subject.
- A summary of the findings.
- Research and analysis, which is typically the longest section and is often subdivided into sections for repositories, source types, etc. A subsection may also be a proof argument explaining how a conflict of evidence was resolved.
- A list of suggested further research.
Below is an example of the table of contents of one of my research reports (names have been crossed out).
