Abbreviations: if there are abbreviations in the text that require special attention, place them here

F. INTRODUCTION: The introduction should provide necessary background information. Two or three paragraphs only. Provide a clear, concise and achievable objective at the end of the introduction. There should be no subsections, figures or tables in this section, except review papers.

G. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The research methodology for the study should be appropriate and applied properly. Procedures used should be clearly described with strong and reliable evidence (references) to support and validate the information in the paper. Use italics for subheadings.

H. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: The results of the analysis should be correctly interpreted. Provide a clear description of all results presented. All tables and figures should appear in the places they are first cited.

I. Conclusion: Conclusions should be sound, clear and concise. Conclusion should be restricted to six lines and should concentrate on your contribution to knowledge in this paper. There should be no results, figures or references in this section.

J. Acknowledgement: Only funding sources should be acknowledged not individuals The authors extend their appreciation to ………………….for funding this research with a Grant Number: ……..….


Use the JASEM STYLE for the references as indicated below

*Do not number the references
