The title should be typed in Sentence case, using bold face. Follow on directly, using upper and lower cases, with the names and addresses of the authors, with the presenting author underlined. Leave one clear line between the addresses and the start of the body text. The abstract body should be structured using bold Background, Aims, Methods, Results, Summary/conclusions headings. For Greek or other special characters, use the “Symbols” font.
  5. The abstract should include a couple of background sentences, the aims of the study, brief methodology, data and results and main conclusion(s). Tables of figures are discouraged unless absolutely necessary; references should not be included.  If they are to be included they  can be included as high resolution images (300 dpi/1 MB).
