The final stage in the research process is that of making plausible inference and presenting research conclusions. This chapter will build on Chapter 6 to show how inferences and results of discussed types of inference in MMR studies can be formulated in research reports to be presented for various audiences, both academic and lay/professional, with a view to maximizing impact of the research in question. Along with the challenges researchers as a whole face in the process and conducting the research, novice and early career researchers often find producing a full and appropriately formulated report of their research a difficult and challenging task. Such reports/accounts may be directed at research sponsors and grant giving bodies, and typically will include research theses and journal articles and book chapters, but may also include reports to lay agencies. Accordingly, this final chapter in Part 2 shows how a MMR-based research study can be optimally presented to its key audiences.
