Context: I am writing a thesis that is divided in a few parts (e.g. "Context and motivations", "Literature review", "Experiments", etc.).
Each part starts with a 100-200 words-long introduction (or preamble) that links the new part with previous content, introduce purpose of this part, as well as give an overview of its content.
Dummy example, for part "Experiments":
We have defined the research question we address in this research, and derived from it hypotheses. This part details experimental studies we have conducted in order to test these hypotheses. First, we give a global overview of experiments we conducted, and then, we will detail them one by one.
Question: Is it [ok/common/a good practice] to append to this introduction a few words about "next steps", i.e. what comes after this part?
For example, one could add following sentence to the preamble above:
Once these results detailed, we will summarize our thesis contribution in the next part.
