Findings and Discussion

The results and discussion should be presented in the same part, clearly and briefly. The discussion part should contain the benefit of the research result, not the repeat result part. The results and discussion part can be written in the same part to avoid the extensive quotation


The conclusion section contains a summary of the research findings, which correlate with the research objectives written in the introduction. Then state the main points of the discussion. A conclusion generally concludes with a statement about how the research work contributes to the field of study as a whole (shows how to progress from the latest knowledge).

11. Citations: Citation is divided into direct and indirect citations.

a. Direct Citations

Gramsci adds a very important new dimension with his concept of national -popular: a class cannot achieve national leadership, and become hegemonic if it confines itself only to class interests; it must take into account the popular and democratic demands and struggles of the people which do not have a purely class character, that is, which do not arise directly out of the relations of production. (Simon, 1999)

b. Indirect Citations

According to Abrams, expressive criticism is when literature is understood as one focusing on the author. Meanwhile, mimetic criticism is seen from the relation between the real world beyond the text and/or becoming the background of the writing (Abrams, 1999).
