State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.


2.  Section

Divide your article into clearly defined sections. Each section is given a brief heading. Headings and subheadings for different sections of the papers should be used and clearly identified. Each section needs to be numbered such as 2., 2.1., 2.1.1.
