11.10 Ending

The body of the report ends with the results, conclusions and recommendations, if any. Some reports simply end in a summary of major findings. Others offer conclusions derived from the findings and discussion. The conclusions are enumerated or given in running text and may be combined with recommendations, if required. Conclusions and recommendations are sometimes placed at the beginning of the report and only summarized at the end.
