  • Abstract
  • Introduction
  • Main body
  • Results and discussions
  •  Conclusions

Title - Make sure that the title is specific and concise. Titles should be presented in title case - all words except the first word should be in lower case letters.

List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses - Provide the full names and affiliations of all the authors. Affiliations should include department, university  or organization, city, and country. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author, and their email address needs to be included.

Keywords - At least 6 keywords or phrases should be included and must be separated by commas to distinguish them

Introduction - The introduction section should provide a context for your manuscript. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in   your field of research.

Main body - the main body part should include the main proposed ideas, results and discussions.

Conclusions - A conclusion is where you summarize the paper's findings and generalize their importance, discuss ambiguous data, and recommend further research. An effective conclusion should provide closure for a paper, leaving the reader feeling satisfied that the concepts have been fully explained.

Usually, the acknowledgments section includes the names of people who in  some way contributed to the work, but do not fit the criteria to be listed as the authors.
