Affiliations should include department, university or organization, city, and country.

Keywords – Between 3 and 5  keywords or phrases should be included and must be separated by commas to distinguish them.

Introduction – The introduction section should provide a context for your manuscript. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in your field of research.

Main body – the main body part should include the main  ideas, results and discussions.

An effective conclusion should provide closure for a paper, leaving the reader feeling satisfied that the concepts have been fully explained.
