Title:The title of the paper should be concise and definitive (with key words appropriate for retrieval purposes).
Author Names and Affiliations: It is journal policy that all those who have participated significantly in the technical aspects of a paper be recognized as co-authors or cited in the acknowledgments. In the case of a paper with more than one author, correspondence concerning the paper will be sent to the first author unless staff is advised otherwise.

Abstract:A short abstract (200-300 words maximum) should open the paper. The purposes of an abstract are:
to give a clear indication of
the objective, scope, and results of the paper so that readers may determine
whether the full text will be of particular interest to them;
to provide key words and phrases
for indexing, abstracting, and retrieval purposes.
The abstract should not attempt to condense the whole subject matter into a few words for quick reading.
