i.        Equations

We recommend using equation function in Microsoft processor. Single variables (e.g., “a² + b² = c²”), other symbols (e.g., β or Δ), or mathematical operators (e.g., x, ≥, or ±) are not typed using equation function.

j.       Units of measurement

SI units are used.

k.      Species names

Write using italics (e.g., Homo sapiens) with full the genus and species, both in the title of the manuscript and at the first mention of an organism in a paper. After the first mention, the first letter of the genus name followed by the full species name may be used (e.g., H. sapiens).

Explain in detail about the research design, settings, time frame, variables, population, samples, sampling, instruments, data analysis, and information of ethical clearance fit test. This chapter may be divided into sections if several methods are used.



This section may be further divided into subsections with subheading. Describe the significance of your findings and the most important part of your manuscript. Follow a logical stream of thought; in general, the interpretation as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.



Authors should explain how the results relate to the hypothesis presented as the basis of the study and provide a succinct explanation of the implications of the findings, particularly in relation to previous related studies and potential future directions for research. The content of the discussion section includes: the explanation of results, references to previous research, deduction, and hypothesis. This section cannot be divided into subsections.



This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the article, highlighting its importance and relevance as well as suggestion or recommendation for further research.



Those who contributed to the work but do not meet the authorship criteria should be listed in the Acknowledgments with a description of the contribution.

Figures and Tables Figures

Each figure should be submitted as an individual file. Cite figures in ascending Arabic numerals according to the first appearance in the manuscript file. Figures should be uploaded in PowerPoint for the first submission. However, the original formats should be submitted if the manuscript is accepted or revised. The original format must be in JPEG or TIFF and not be smaller than 300 dpi. A figure label uses Arabic numerals. The labels of your figure must be matched with the name of the file uploaded (e.g. a figure citation of “Figure 1” must refer to a figure file named “Figure1.jpeg”). The figures are uploaded directly to https://e-



Cite tables in ascending Arabic numerals according to the first appearance in the manuscript file. Each table is placed after the references in order. Tables require a label with Arabic numerals in order (e.g., “Table 1”, “Table 2”, and so on) and brief descriptive title to be placed above the table. Vertical rules should not be used. Do not submit your tables in separate files.

Authors can submit one file of supplementary material along with their manuscript through the website.

A section titled “Supplementary Material” should be included before the references list with a concise description for each supplementary material file. Supplementary materials are not modified by our production team. Authors are responsible for providing the final supplementary materials files that will be published along with the article. Supporting information files that published will not be edited.
