Your Abstract should consist of four paragraphs labelled `Background’, `Methods’, `Results‘ and `Conclusions‘, and cannot exceed 3400 characters (space not included). The template headings are part of the counting and cannot be deleted. Whereas the title, author name, affiliation, and figures/images are not counted.
You are allowed to add one figure and one table, two figures, or two tables to your Abstract. Tables should be in an editable format and the Figures should meet the following requirements: 1200 dpi for line drawings and 300 dpi for color and half-tone artwork. We encourage you to prepare colour figures (there are no costs involved). Please pay special attention to the quality of your figures!
Please do not include more than 5 references and they should follow these requirements:
- The references should be numbered in the order in which they appear in the text.
- At the end of the abstract the full list of references should give the name and initials of all authors unless there are more than six, when only the first three should be given followed by et al. The authors’ names should be followed by the title of the article, the title of the Journal abbreviated according to the style of Index Medicus, the year of publication, the volume number and the first and last page numbers.
- References to books should give the title of the book, which should be followed by the place of publication, the publisher, the year and the relevant pages.
