Original Research Articles, Clinical Trial Articles, and Technology Reports

For Original Research Articles, Clinical Trial Articles, and Technology Reports the section headings should be those appropriate for your field and the research itself. It is recommended to organize your manuscript in the following sections or their equivalents for your field:

  • Introduction: Succinct, with no subheadings.

  • Materials and Methods: This section may be divided by subheadings. This section should contain sufficient detail so that when read in conjunction with cited references, all procedures can be repeated.

  • Results: This section may be divided by subheadings. Footnotes should not be used and have to be transferred into the main text.

  • Discussion: This section may be divided by subheadings. Discussions should cover the key findings of the study: discuss any prior art related to the subject so to place the novelty of the discovery in the appropriate context; discuss the potential short-comings and limitations on their interpretations; discuss their integration into the current understanding of the problem and how this advances the current views; speculate on the future direction of the research and freely postulate theories that could be tested in the future.

Please note that the Material and Methods section can be placed in any of the following ways: before Results, before Discussion or after Discussion.
