  1. Title of the paper
  2. Author name(s)
  3. Author affiliation(s)
  4. Address(es) of the institution(s) at which the work was performed
  5. Name, postal and e-mail addresses, and phone and fax numbers of the corresponding author to whom the revision or galley proofs of the paper are to be sent.

The title should be brief and should not exceed 25 words. The affiliation address for each author should be indicated by superscript Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.)

Abstract

Articles must include an abstract of 250 words or fewer. The abstract should not repeat the information already present in the title. The abstract should be written in English.

Keywords

Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 7 keywords written in alphabetical order. Please avoid general terms, multiple concepts (avoid, for example, and or of), and abbreviations. Only abbreviations firmly established in the field are eligible.

Introduction

The Introduction presents the purpose of the studies reported and their relationship to earlier work in the field. It should not be an extensive review of the literature. Use only those references required to provide the most salient background to allow the readers to understand and evaluate the purpose and results of the present study without referring to previous publications on the topic.

Materials and Methods

The Materials and Methods sections should be brief, but they should include sufficient technical information to allow the experiments to be repeated by a qualified reader. Only new methods should be described in detail. Cite previously published procedures in References.

Results

The Results section should include the rationale or design of the experiments as well as the results of the experiments. Results can be presented in figures, tables, and text. Reserve extensive discussion of the results for the Discussion section.

Discussion

The Discussion section should be an interpretation of the results rather than a repetition of the Results section. The Results and Discussion sections may be combined into one section when substantial redundancy cannot be avoided if they are put into two separate sections or when a long discussion is not warranted.

Conclusions

Four basic steps to take in writing a conclusion: Summarize your research, spell out your contribution, state the limitation of your study, and suggest potential areas of further research, or what did the researcher discover? Collect and summarize the most important results & their implications, the status of the problem should be briefly reviewed before the new findings are presented.

Acknowledgments
