Abstract is structured under the sub-headings: Background (stating what is already known or problem-related to the topic); Aims and objectives; Methods (selection and size of study subjects, dates of data collection, instrument); Results (key statistical outcomes: OR/ RR, CI or themes in qualitative research); Conclusions, Relevance or implication to clinical practice

Keywords: provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using British or American spelling, but not a mixture of these, and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

 

Introduction

Clearly state the need for this study and the main question or hypothesis of the study. Summarize the literature review or background in the area of the study.

 

Methods

Describe the study design, setting and samples, ethical considerations, research ethics approval measurements/ instruments, data collection/procedure, and data analysis used. If it is qualitative research instrument can be omitted. Ensure correct use of the terms sex (when reporting biological factors) and gender (identify, psychosocial or cultural factors), and, unless inappropriate, report the sex and/or gender of study participants, the sex of animals or cells, and describe the methods used to determine sex and gender. If the study was done involving an exclusive population, for example in only one sex, justify why, except in obvious cases, (e.g., serviks cancer). Define how you determined race or ethnicity and justify the relevance.

 

Results

The results explain the research findings and discuss them scientifically. Write the scientific findings obtained from the results of research that has been done, supported by adequate data. Research results and findings must be able to answer the objectives/research hypotheses in the introduction.

The results of the study can be presented with the support of tables, graphs or images as needed, to clarify the presentation of results verbally. Table titles and graphs or picture captions are arranged in the form of phrases (not sentences) in a concise manner. The picture/graphic description is placed under the picture/graphic, while the table title is placed above it. The title starts with a capital letter.

 

Discussion

Discussion should be based only on the reported results. Discussion for advances in nursing practice, nursing knowledge development, and nursing implication is strongly recommended. The discussion explores whether the results obtained in accordance with the hypothesis or not, and put forward his argument.

The citation of references in the discussion should not be too long (if necessary avoided). Citation of research results or opinions of others should be abstracted and written in sentences itself (don’t use the exact same sentence). A collection of similar studies can be referred to in groups.

 

Conclusions

State the conclusions and recommendations for further study. Do not summarize the study results.

References

Each article contains at least twenty references. Writing a reference system in the article text and writing a bibliography should use a reference management application program, for example: Mendeley. All references referred to in the scientific article text must appear in the References section. References must contain references originating from primary sources, such as scientific journals, proceeding articles and should amount to a minimum of 80% of the total bibliography published in the last ten years. The technique of writing a bibliography is based on the APA Referencing 6th edition.
