    Method and Materials

    Provide sufficient details about the Method you used in this research to reach the conclusion. Materials already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

    Results

    Results should be clear and concise.

    Discussion

    This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

    Conclusions

    The main conclusions of the study must be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

    Acknowledgments

    All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references and may include supporting grants, presentations, and so forth.

    Reference List

    Should be prepared using Harvard-style according to the instructions mentioned in the ‘Submission Format’.

    End Notes, Tables, Appendices

    Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading. Vertical rules should not be used.
