The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 150 words.


This section should be succinct, with no subheadings.

1.     Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate.

2.     All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Smith [9]”; “as discussed elsewhere [9, 10]”).

3.     All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed.

1.     Reference to a journal publication:
