Report Writing Introduction to Conclusion
We not only write reports for our customers but also guide them with the process of writing, if they want to try themselves. If you are also one of those customers who are looking for guidance, we have compiled a set of tips and tricks to get you started and set you on your way to creating a good report. Here they are:
- Start with finalizing the research topic.
- Once this is done, plan the writing process.
- To write a good outline, follow this structure; introduction, body, and conclusion.
- Write a topic sentence for each body paragraph based on one element of the thesis statement.
- Reword your thesis for a conclusion so that it’s a new sentence but has the same meaning as the thesis statement.
Topic finalization is the first and the foremost requirement because all your report is based on it. You may get the topic from your supervisor, or come up with one yourself and get it approved from him/her. If none of this works for you, you always have the option of getting a suggestion for it from one of our expert writers.
The real work starts with the preparation of an outline, meaning your report writing structure. The outline is like the structure and skeleton of your report. It’s a very bad practice to start writing without a proper plan or outline first. Making it does take some time, but it keeps you focused on the topic, so you don’t get distracted as you begin to write.
The introduction provides background information on the topic and ends with a thesis statement. The thesis statement is the most important sentence in your report. It is like the extract of the whole report. Make it brief, clear, and concise. Include everything in it that you want to argue for in the report.
Next comes the part of preparing the body. Unless otherwise instructed, divide the body into three paragraphs. Their length is determined by the number of words for the full report required by your supervisor. The word-count may also vary depending upon the kind of writing, e.g., business report writing or writing of a thesis report. As a rough estimate, divide the total number of words by 5, and allocate the resulting number to each section; meaning introduction, body paragraph 1, 2, 3, and conclusion. Provide 2 to 3 examples supporting the topic sentence in the first body paragraph. Repeat the exercise for body paragraph 2 and 3.
In the end, rewrite your thesis statement in a way that words are changed, but their meaning is retained. That is the starting sentence of your conclusion. End the conclusion with recommendations and possible questions for further research. That’s all. Once the outline is made, expand on the points. Make sure to properly cite information from outside sources. Be very careful about the credibility of your sources you cite the data from.
