In the developing and changing world, it is very important to present information to the service of humanity. Scientific articles, one of the ways of conveying information in written form, are defined as a written and published report describing original research results. The writing of a scientific research paper is a professional nature but very difficult task that requires significant knowledge, experience, and skill. The most important point that the researcher should know for scientific articles is that the article is scientific in nature and clear that the readers can understand. The accepted order in a scientific research article written in accordance with the writing criteria is title, abstract, introduction, material-method, results, discussion, and references, and each section has its own specific writing rules. The discussion section, which is among the article sections, is the most difficult part to write, although it is easy to write in terms of content. In this section, the researcher should critically investigate his own results and those of other researchers and interpret his conclusions from a scientific point of view. In this section, the researcher conveys his views, acceptances, and criticisms on the subject to the reader and the scientific world. In this review, it is aimed to emphasize the elements that should be included in the discussion section of a quantitative research article in line with the literature, and some important points to make the article attractive and acceptable for publication, especially for researchers who are just starting out in research writing.
