It is usually best to start with a brief introduction explaining the background and previous work in the area, followed by your research question or objectives and a description of the methods used for your study.  This should then be followed by your results.  After the results, try to acknowledge the limitations of your study.  Conclusions and recommendations should be last, and should be based entirely on results presented in the abstract.
