1 Answer to this question

The Discussion section provides an explanation and interpretation of the results or findings of your study by comparing them with the results of previous studies. The Discussion section should relate back to the introduction in two ways:

1. You should explain what light your results shed to the questions you posed in the introduction

2. You should place your results in context by comparing them with the literature you have covered in your literature review

Of course, you need not go back to each and every study that you have mentioned in the introduction. It's best to first give a generic explanation of what your study findings reveal that's unique or different from the existing literature and then give two to three examples from other studies showing what's similar with the results of your study and what's different.
