The "Results" section in a community service journal focuses on documenting the implementation of a program or project and its impact on the target community. In this section, the authors first outline in detail how the project or program was conducted, including details about the location, the involved participants, and the activities that have been carried out. Subsequently, the authors report the tangible outputs from the program or project, such as the number of training sessions held, the number of participants receiving services, or other service units that have been provided. Another key element of the "Results" section is the documentation of the program's or project's impact on society. The authors need to demonstrate how this intervention has resulted in real changes, such as increased knowledge, behavior changes, or improved economic welfare for the participants. In addition, the "Results" section should also include supporting evidence that validates claims about outcomes and impacts. This evidence can be in the form of photos from activities, testimonials from participants, survey results, or other relevant data that can help readers understand the effectiveness and impact of the program or project. Although the main emphasis in community service is usually more on tangible impacts than strict research methodology, the authors still need to provide a brief interpretation or analysis of the collected data in the "Results" section.

Analyzing the effects and consequences of the service rendered in depth is essential for the discussion section of an applied research paper on community service. To ascertain the degree to which the basic goals of the community service have been met and the advantages that the community has reaped, the obtained results must be carefully analyzed. Furthermore, it's critical to talk about the consequences that follow from this community work. Has the social, economic, or environmental landscape significantly changed? Discuss the potential outcomes, both positive and negative, as well as any long-term effects that the community service may have. The durability of the community service program and the potential for replication in other contexts should also be covered in this discussion section. Think about the lessons discovered during the service process and offer specific suggestions for future community service that are comparable. Additionally, talk about the restrictions and difficulties encountered during the community service and provide solutions. Give examples of the specific contributions made by your community service and underline the significance of active community involvement in the program's success by contrasting them with relevant research or community service initiatives. In sum, the author is able to assess the consequences of the community service, offer insights, and reach conclusions that can act as standards for future community service and research in this discussion part.

In the acknowledgement section of a practical paper on community engagement, there are several important points to consider. Firstly, it is necessary to acknowledge all individuals or groups who have contributed to the project, such as fellow researchers, colleagues, students, or external partners.

Furthermore, if the project involved active participation from the community or external partners, special recognition should be given to them. For example, if the project involved collaboration with the local community, acknowledgement should be given for their participation and contributions. Additionally, appreciation should be extended to the supporting organizations or institutions that assisted in coordinating or supporting the project. In this case, recognition can be given to the university, research institution, non-governmental organization, or local government. Don't forget to acknowledge the contributions of administrative and technical individuals or units within the institution that provided significant support.
