Tips on Domestic Violence Research Paper Conclusion

Congratulations! You are at the end of your research paper. You have done all the necessary work, done your research on domestic violence and you are pleased with your discoveries and the body of your paper. Now you just need to do one more thing to get that work handed in.

After successfully writing your body, it may baffle you why you need tips to write the conclusion. After all, you just wrote several hundred words of information. You’re a writer! You can do this. And there is no doubt in my mind that you can and so the list below is simply meant as a guide to consider when you get started:

  1. Your paper is not finished without a conclusion. It is as important as your introduction and your body and every such academic writing that you will produce in the future will need one. This said; don’t take a casual approach in getting the job done. Completing this part of your paper takes practice.
  2. Don’t just summarize what you have in the body of your research. You are expected to synthesize, bring in the larger picture, the possible implications of the study you just completed.
  3. Do not introduce new ideas and new train of thought. You might have gotten an epiphany overnight but if it hasn’t been discussed in your body, you do not want to find a place for it at the end of your paper.
  4. As in your introduction, you are re-stating your thesis as well as your topic and bringing into focus what you explored throughout, without repeating what is in the body.
  5. You should consider making suggestions are recommendations, not in isolation but as a direct result of what you found about domestic violence in your topic.
  6. Making a call to action is a gutsy and impressive move. It shows you understand your subject enough to challenge individuals to make a stand and act in light of your findings.
  7. Maintain your tone that you used throughout. Never make apologies or make statements that may undermine your arguments put forward in your body. Maintain an authoritative voice on the subject.
  8. Do not give in to ramblings but be concise and precise.
  9. Do not be afraid to make mention of challenges that you have been faced with while conducting your research. It gives legitimacy to the research that you did and that you overcame the obstacles.

Writing the conclusion of your domestic violence research paper can be a bit more technical than you think. Don’t make the mistake of summarizing the details in the body. As you write, keep a copy of the tips above to avoid making some common mistakes.
