The abstract must be accurate, brief, clear, precise, honest, and specific. Use words that reflect the precise meaning. Please consider word limitations (150-200 words).

In the end, if the articles are results of research, authors should state the methods used.

Discussion

Discussions should explore the meaning of the article. The discussion is the most important part of your article. Here you get a chance to sell your data. Discussions could begin with a brief summary of the scientific findings from previous researcher’s authors should explore things that relate to the objectives of the work and give a scientific interpretation and reasons for each of the results or findings presented.
