A research project could be well designed, data diligently collected and analysed by “state of the art” statistical methods and very significant conclusions reached. However, if the project is not effectively and efficiently reported, all the preceding efforts would have been wasted. In most cases, the research report is the only part of the project that is available to others. It is, therefore, necessary that research reports be presented in a logical, concise and factual manner to lead to meaningful deductions and guide decision making.
