  • Results: A summary of the results presented in sufficient detail with statistical analysis to support the conclusions.
  • Conclusions: A statement of the conclusions reached. It is not satisfactory to state, “the results will be discussed,” or “other data will be presented,” etc.


Affiliations should include department, institute, town and country. Where there are multiple affiliations, each should be listed as a separate paragraph. Each institute should appear in the order used against the author names and show the appropriate superscript number, e.g.:
1 Department, University, Town, State, Zip code, Malaysia
