What is the difference between "Findings and Analysis"?
And do I need to quote a lot in the findings section?
~ Something that has been found.
~ A conclusion reached after examination or investigation: the finding of a grand jury; a coroner's findings.
~ A statement or document containing an authoritative decision or conclusion: a presidential finding that authorized the covert operation.
~ The separation of an intellectual or material whole into its constituent parts for individual study.
~ The study of such constituent parts and their interrelationships in making up a whole.
~ A spoken or written presentation of such study: published an analysis of poetic meter.
Yes, you'd be presenting LOTS of data in the findings section of a paper (and therefore, many citations!); if the analysis is yours, no quotations or citations are needed, but if you are reporting on the analysis by someone else, you'll need citations there, too.
