1. Authors should have made substantial contributions to:
- the conception and design of the study, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data
- drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content
2. Introduction section
Explain the context of the study and state the precise objective. An Introduction should contain the following three parts:
- Background: Authors have to make clear what the context is. Ideally, authors should give an idea of the state-of-the art of the field the report is about.
- The Problem: If there was no problem, there would be no reason for writing a manuscript, and definitely no reason for reading it. So, please tell readers why they should proceed reading. Experience shows that for this part a few lines are often sufficient.
- The Proposed Solution: Now and only now! - authors may outline the contribution of the manuscript. Here authors have to make sure readers point out what are the novel aspects of authors work. Authors should place the paper in proper context by citing relevant papers. At least, 5 references (recently journal articles) are used in this section.
3. Results and Discussion
The presentation of results should be simple and straightforward in style. This section reports the most important findings, including results analyses as appropriate and comparisons to other research results. This section should be supported suitable references.
Your conclusion should make your readers glad they read your paper. Summarize sentences the primary outcomes of the study in a paragraph (NOT in numbering).
5. References and Citations
We usually expect a minimum of 25 and 40 references primarily to recent journal papers for research/original paper and review paper, respectively. Each citation should be written in the order of appearance in the text , , , , .... (Sequential order!!) URGENT: SELF CITATION from same author or group authors is MAX 10%.
A paragraph is a sentence or group of sentences that support one main idea. Many authors have presented paragraphs in very long terms. Author should use simple sentences which are grammatically correct, but too many can make your writing less interesting. Every paragraph in a paper should be:
- Unified: All of the sentences in a single paragraph should be related to a single controlling idea (often expressed in the topic sentence of the paragraph).
- Clear: The sentences should all refer to the central idea of the paper.
- Coherent: The sentences should be arranged in a logical manner and should follow a definite plan for development.
- Well-developed: Every idea discussed in the paragraph should be adequately explained and supported through evidence and details that work together to explain the paragraph’s controlling idea.
