Structure of manuscript


An abstract is a succinct (one paragraph) summary of the entire paper.

A concise and factual abstract is required (200 to 250 words).

The abstract should state briefly the aims, methods, results and major conclusion of the research.

From the abstract, a reader should be able to make out what the content of the article. Hence it requires special attention of the author.

An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone.

References should be avoided.


Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 8 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, ‘and’, ‘of’).

The main purpose of the introduction is to provide the necessary background or context of the study (i.e the nature of the problem and its significance).

State the specific purpose or objective of the study.

Provide a brief but appropriate historical backdrop and the contemporary context in which the proposed research question occupies the central stage.


Methods section must succinctly describe what was actually done.

Describe the source population and the selection criteria for study participants.

Identify the methods, apparatus, and procedures in sufficient detail to allow other workers to reproduce the results.

Authors submitting review manuscripts should describe the methods used for locating, selecting, extracting and synthesizing data.

Describe statistical methods with enough detail to enable a knowledgeable reader with access to the original data to verify the reported results.

For experimental studies it is useful to begin the discussion by summarizing briefly the main findings, and then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings.

Compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study, and explore the implications of the findings for future research and practice.


References must be written according to the vancouver reference style.

Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors.

Citation in the text
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa).
