This part should be as clear as possible to enable other scientists to repeat the research presented. The use of subheadings to divide the text is encouraged. Primary headings, Secondary or subheadings should be in bold sentence case. Third level subheadings should be in Italicized sentence Case. In case of animal/human experiments or clinical trials authors must give the details of ethical approval (Mandatory).

In this part, the same data/ information given in a table must not be repeated in a figure, or vice versa. Tables and Figures should be self explanatory and it is not acceptable to repeat extensively the numerals from tables into text and give lengthy and unnecessary explanations of the Tables and Figures. Discussion should relate the results to current understanding of the scientific problems being investigated in the field.

Note: Tables and Figures should send separately, and should not be included in results section.


This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work highlighting its importance and relevance.


All acknowledgments should be typed in one paragraph directly preceding the reference section.

Conflict of interest statements
