  14. The system of writing:

  • Author names and affiliations: Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower- case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.
  • Abstract and its key words. On the abstract, explicitly write in bold: Introduction, objective of the papers, method, findings, and conclusion. A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes. Acknowledgements Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).
  • Introduction. State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
  • Methods:  Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
  • Results: Results should be clear and concise.
  • Discussion: This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
  • Sub title
  • Sub title
  • Sub title (adjusted as needed)
  • Closing (conclusion and recommendation)
  • References (contains literature cited in the text)
  • The conceptual systematic and the result of thinking, scientific-argumentative and logic

  • The list of references (bibliography arranged by following the example bellow, and it should be systemized based of the name of writer alphabetically). The texts bellow are the examples of the source of literature.
