5. Key words: Three or four keywords should be placed two returns below the abstract text.

The major headings should be arranged as follows: Introduction; Data collection and analyses; Results; Discussion; Acknowledgement; References.

All references in text should be on the reference list also. Unpublished data should not be included in the reference list.
