Keywords are the labels of your manuscript and critical to correct indexing and searching. Therefore, keywords should be well selected and closely related to the topic to facilitate the reader’s search, and they should represent the content and highlight of your article. Use only those abbreviations that are firmly established in the field. There must be 3-5 keywords (word or phrase). Each word or phrase in Keywords should be separated by a comma (,).


In Introduction, Authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of introduction section. Before the objective, Authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out those that are underway.
