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, acronyms, and footnotes should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. The abstract should consist of four categories labeled "Background," "Methods," "Results," and "Conclusions." Respectively, they should briefly describe the problem being addressed, how the study was performed, the salient results, and what the authors conclude from the results. For case reports, "Methods" and "Results" sections may be replaced with "Case Description," if appropriate.


  • Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, "the", "or", “and”).
  • Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.
  • These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
