Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifcations
should be described.
Results – Results should be clear and concise.
Discussions – This should explore the signifcance of the results of the work, not repeat
them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
