Section 3.4.11


Include appropriate and specific recommendations as part of your conclusion or, in feasibility and recommendation reports, as a separate section preceding the conclusion.

Many types of scientific and technical documents conclude by pointing to further action. Research reports often recommend further studies to confirm tentative explanations or to answer questions presented in the discussion section. Feasibility and recommendation reports always have one or more specific recommendations as the principal aim of the document.

Recommendations should always be specific and appropriate to the document's audience. Separate each specific recommendation. Often authors present recommendations in bulleted or numbered lists. Organize recommendations either in the order of importance or in the logical order of development.
