Titles: Concise and informative.
Authors: Corresponding author should be marked with superscript asterisk (*).
Affiliated institutions linked by the same superscript numbers on authors.
Abstract: (up to 250 words) should explain to the general reader why the research is done, what has been found and why the results are important. They should start with some brief BACKGROUND information: one or two sentences giving a broad introduction to the field comprehensible to the general reader, and then a brief summary of more detailed background specific to your study. This should be followed by an explanation of the OBJECTIVES/METHODS and then the RESULTS. The final sentence should outline the main CONCLUSIONS of the study. Please do not include citations or abbreviations in the abstract.

Main Text: The manuscript should start with a brief introduction describing the paper’s significance. The introduction should provide sufficient background information to make the article intelligible to readers in other disciplines, and sufficient context that the significance of the experimental findings is clear. Technical terms should be defined. Symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms should be defined the first time they are used. All tables and figures should be cited in numerical order. All data must be shown in the main text. References to unpublished materials are not allowed to substantiate significant conclusions of the paper.
Acknowledgments of grants, funds, people, etc., should be gathered into a paragraph after the main text.
