Authors are not allowed to write with different contents and formats.

For clarity, please read the following advanced instructions carefully before starting to write articles

  2. All instructions and examples must be read carefully and then applied. For example, if the title in the template is written in the format Capitalize Each Word, Time New Roman 10, bold and positioned in the middle, then the author must follow these rules.
