Original research paper includes hypotheses, background problems, research methods, results, interpretation of research findings, and discussion of possible implications. This article is generally long, with word counts ranging from 3000 to 6000. It should be divided in Title page, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methods, Result and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement, Conflict of Interest, References.
