Topic Sentence for Discussion

Summary

In PRESENT TENSE or PRESENT PERFECT TENSE

No new data or references, unless to help understand what you have already said.

Implications

Limitations

Future Research

Conclusion (maybe optional)

Only if your discussion is really long (4 pages), to tie everything together.

If it is only one paragraph, you don't need a conclusion section. Maybe a final comment with a prediction

e.g. "If X follow these recommendations, hopefully Y will Z")
