This part consists of empirical results and theoretical discussions, which are not necessarily
separated into two subtitles. It is preferred that empirical findings and theoretical discussions
are mixed under some subtitles, which are organized based on topics and subtopics.

This part should briefly state the principal results, major conclusions, and recommendations for future studies. It could also mention the social, cultural, or political implications of the
study. Do not add any new ideas or discussions here.

be noted for their contributions during the research or writing processes.
