-Methods: In this section, it is necessary to fully introduce the laboratory methods and consumables and equipment used. Also, the method of sampling should be carefully stated and the statistical tests used and the steps of statistical inference should be well described.
-Results and discussion: Presenting results and discussing it is the heart of a scientific article. The first goal of this section is to properly organize the results and present them objectively. In this section, the obtained results should be carefully and deeply analyzed and an attempt should be made to extract and explain the research findings. It is necessary to compare the results and findings of the research with the results and findings of other researches and to clearly identify the new findings, whether they are innovative or have contributed to the increase of existing knowledge.
-Conclusion: In this section, the findings of the research are presented in a concise and clear manner.
-Conflict of interest: Authors should clearly state any potential conflicts of interest, such as receiving money for research work, or gaining inventory or a stake in an organization that may be gained or lost through the publication of an article.
