Conclusions

Your conclusion reiterates the main points or arguments of your paper and should relate back to the information that you provided in your introduction. This includes the thesis statement, topic background and interpretation of results.

A conclusion should not be an afterthought. Generally speaking, you do not add new information or arguments in your conclusion although you might suggest further research that could be conducted.
