  5. Introduction. This section contains an adequate background and a brief literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what you are trying to achieve (to solve the limitation of previous studies), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. In the end, the author must state the purpose of the article.
  6. Methods. The method contains an explanation of the research approach, subjects of the study, the conduct of the research procedure, the use of materials and instruments, data collection, and analysis techniques. This section should inform the reader about the types and methods used by the authors. In this section, avoid citing definitions directly from the book or other sources.
  7. Results and Discussion. Results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail.

Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. In discussion, it is the most important section of your article. Make the discussion corresponding to the results, but do not reiterate the results. Often should begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings (not experimental results). The following components should be covered in discussion: How do your results relate to the original question or objectives outlined in the Introduction section (what)? Do you provide an interpretation scientifically for each of your results or findings presented (why)? Are your results consistent with what other investigators have reported (what else)? Or are there any differences? This section can be completed with a table, picture, graphics, or scheme.

  9. Acknowledgments (if any). In this section, you can acknowledge any support given, which is not covered by the author's contribution or funding sections. This may include administrative and technical support, or donations in kind (e.g., materials used for experiments).
