There is no established protocol or fixed convention. Heaps of variations.
If for a thesis, I would recommend you look at theses that passed and see how they did it, plus consider your own unique features (arising from the unqiue needs of your research) and disucss it with supervisors/colleagues.
I seem to recall Conteh raises this in her book on supporting ehtnography stduetns.
Thanks Ann. I have been looking at the variations in outlines. I am only confused as to what comes after the Discussion chapter,
I discussed with my supervisor if I should have a chapter that says “conclusion” or if i should stop at discussion. She advises she has to read the study before she can give me a definitive answer, so I’ll wait and see.
