Method must be concise but sufficiently detailed (with reference or modification) so research can be repeated by other researchers.

Results are displayed in a concise but clear narrative with/without tables or figures.

Tables are made without vertical lines (use only lines at the top and bottom of the table as well as for separating heading from the main table), with table title placed before the table, numbered in Arabic numerals (Table X), and have to be referred in the text.
