I experienced major difficulties in arranging the information of the discussion as the first draft consisted of separate findings and discussion of responses were indicated separately from the previous studies. However, this did not provide with the required support and evidence to address the research objectives as achievable by the synthesis of information. This encouraged me to rewrite the discussion part and reducing the volume of information to meet the word limit. I synthesized the combination of participants’ responses, literature and example media example. This allowed the research article to present the most critical findings in the highly effective manner which could be understandable, comprehendible and insightful for the reader.
I undertook the revision with the critical perspective of the readers. While I included the most interesting and evident facts in the first draft in an unstructured manner, the subsequent revisions were focused on both the structure of the paper and grammar. I had remained concentrated on enhancing the readability and effectiveness of the research paper by synthesizing the collective information in a precise and brief manner. This was undertaken to ensure that while the volume of the information on the research topic and findings can make the research paper exhaustive in length, it was essential that the interest and empirical evidence of the information is evidently attained.
Therefore, the challenge of reducing the length of my research paper was addressed by taking the approach of presenting the most important information in the highly concise manner. I used the spelling checking and grammar checking tools offered by the Microsoft Word as per the Hong Kong SAR English. It was critical to proofread the entire research paper using the HK English as I wrote the paper while the settings of the word processor were default. The critical focus was given to not overuse any term than it is required in order to keep the quality of the research paper at the highest level possible. The focus on the writing style, grammar and the structured had remained throughout the proofreading.
