The abstract must be a concise yet comprehensive reflection of what is in your article. In particular, the abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references. The abstract should not be more than 200 words. Be sure that you adhere to these limits; otherwise, you will need to edit your abstract accordingly. The abstract must be written as one paragraph, and should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material. Ensure that your abstract reads well and is grammatically correct.

Do not use abbreviations in the title unless they are unavoidable (for example, “TCP/IP” in the title of the article).

All material that is paraphrased or quoted from another source is substantiated with an in-text reference citation. References should relate only to the material that is cited within the content of the manuscript and may not include any bibliographic references that do not associate directly with the content of the manuscript. References should be in alphabetical order and not numbered in the text or in the reference list. Please do not include any abbreviations.
