The dreaded “Conclusions” chapter


Spread the love

I’ve sent rough drafts of my research chapters to my boss, but I’m having an unbelievable bout of writers’ block for the conclusions chapter. I have a section at the end of every research chapter with conclusions, some discussion and implications, and future directions. These are standard items for the end of a chapter, according to the postdocs in my group. I’m now struggling with how to write a conclusions chapter that doesn’t sound like it was copied from the end of each chapter. That would look awful and I’d appear incredibly unmotivated to take such a perceived shortcut.
