The title chosen should reflect the main focus of the work and contain enough “keys”  words to facilitate finding relevant in electronic databases. It may be descriptive (mention the focus of the study done) or completion type (provide a brief summary of the findings by the authors). Care should be taken to be short and concise, avoiding the use of abbreviations if they are not common knowledge.

2. Author (s) and institution
Here the name or names of all authors involved in the performance of work by specifying the name (s) own (s) and surname will be written.

If there are several authors, it must only necessary to specify the full details of the main author (full address, telephone, fax and email). It is important that the email address provided has vast memory, because through this medium will be notified if the work was accepted or requires some corrections.

4. Introduction
It should express the context or background of the study (eg, the nature of the problem and its significance) and state the specific purpose or objective of the research or hypothesis being tested. Often, the research focuses more clearly when their purpose or hypothesis is posed as a question. Both the main and secondary objectives should be clarified from the outset. It should only include references that are strictly relevant and not add data or conclusions of the work presented.

5. Materials and Methods
The Methods section should include only information that is required to ensure assessment of the procedures and reproducibility. Do not cover the information obtained during the study, to be placed in the Results section.

Selection and description of participants

Clearly describe the process of selection of subjects under observation or experimentation (patients or laboratory animals, and controls); explicit selection criteria and exclusion, and describe the source population of the study subjects are key. Because it is not always clear how important variables such as age and sex for the purposes of research, authors should explain their use when they are included in the study; for example, authors should explain why only subjects of certain ages were included or why women were excluded. The main objective is to express clearly how and why the study was done a certain way. When authors use variables such as race or ethnicity, should define how these variables were measured and justify their relevance.

Technical Information

It should identify the methods, equipment (with the name and address of the manufacturer in brackets) and procedures in sufficient detail to allow others to reproduce the results. In the case of known methods, including statistical, you must provide references. When, however, are little known methods, provide a short description of them. In the case of new or substantially modified methods should give reasons for their use. Authors submitting review manuscripts should include in the Methods section, a detailed description of the sources and followed to locate, evaluate, select, extract and synthesize data procedures. These methods should also be summarized in the abstract.

Statistics

Describe statistical methods with enough detail to enable a knowledgeable reader with access to the original data to verify the results presented.

6. Results
Present the results according to a logical sequence, first note the most important findings.

7. Discussion
Emphasize the new and important study and the conclusions.

8. Conclusions
They should relate the findings to the study objectives, avoid exposing categorical statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data.
