  • Conclusion(s): Reports what authors have concluded from these results, and notes their clinical implications.

Introduction

contains a concise review of the subject area and the rationale for the study. The font size of content must be 12 with Times New Roman type having single spacing. More detailed comparisons to previous work and conclusions of the study should appear in the Discussion section.


Materials and Methods

Discussion

New and possible important findings of the study should be emphasized, as well as any conclusions that can be drawn. The Discussion should compare the present data to previous findings. Limitations of the experimental methods should be indicated, as should implications for future research. New hypotheses and clinical recommendations are appropriate and should be clearly identified. Recommendations, particularly clinical ones, may be included when appropriate. The font size of content must be 12 with Times New Roman type having single space distance.


References

References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text.

Supplementary material

Supplementary material can support and enhance your scientific research. Supplementary files offer the author additional possibilities to publish supporting applications, high- resolution images, background datasets, sound clips and more. Note that such items are published online exactly as they are submitted; there is no typesetting involved (supplementary data supplied as an Excel file or as a PowerPoint slide will appear as such online). Submit the material together with the article and supply a concise and descriptive caption for each file. If you wish to make any changes to supplementary data during any stage of the process, then make sure to provide an updated file, and do not annotate any corrections on a previous version.
