The structure of the research articles consists of 10 main sections: (1) Title (2) Ownership Line; (3) Abstract; (4) Keywords; (5) Introduction; (6) Research Methods; (7) Results and Discussion; (8) Conclusion; (9) Acknowledgments and (10) References. The structure of non-research scientific articles is divided into 9 main sections namely: (1) Title; (2) Ownership Line; (3) Abstract; (4) Keywords; (5) Introduction; (6) Discussion; (7) Conclusion; (8) Acknowledgments and (9) References. Each section is explained as follows.
