[Main Text:] Introduction

This should include introductory information that lays out the clinical problem addressed by

the research and that explains other background necessary for understanding the study. The introduction may not longer than 20% of the article.


Materials and Methods

 All descriptions of materials and methods should be included here in the main paper. They should be  broken  up  into  sections,  each  with  a  short  subheading.  Under  exceptional

circumstances, when a particularly lengthy description is required, a portion of the materials and methods can be included in the Supplementary Materials.



Subhead 1: Brief phrase, not a sentence.

Subheadings  must  be either  all complete  sentences  or all phrases.  They  should  be brief, ideally less than 10 words. Subheadings should not end in a period. Your paper may have as many subheadings as are necessary.

Subhead 2: All figures and tables cited in order

All sections of the results should refer to a figure or table, preferably a data display element that is part of the main text. All figures, figure panels and tables must be presented in order. For example, the description of panel A of figure 3 cannot come before that of panel B of figure 2.

You may include page breaks if you would like to embed the figures within the text instead of at the end of the paper.


Table 1. Short title of the first table. Start table captions with a title (short description of the table). Format tables using the Word Table commands and structures.   Do not create tables using spaces or tabs characters.

 Subhead 3: All data presented first in the Results

All data should be presented in the Results. No data should be presented for the first time in the Discussion.



All citations and references should be in APA 6th Ed. Style (Reference Tools Mendeley).
