Comparison between computed and digital radiography
Article structure – Literature review (Abstract details as set out previously) Subdivision – unnumbered sections Divide your article into clearly defined sections. Each subsection is given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line. Subsections should be used as much as possible when cross- referencing text: refer to the subsection by heading as opposed to simply ‘the text’.
Introduction State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Methods Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. *For literature reviews be detailed on databases, Boolean search terms, use a PRISMA flow chart, what critique framework was used, data analysis method etc.
Results should be clear and concise.
Discussion This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
Conclusions The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
Appendices If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc. A copy of the research template – theme framework must be submitted in the appendix
Appendix must have a copy of the “Research Template – theme framework”: 1000 word equivalent (additional supporting material may also be included in the Appendix)
Electronic artwork General points
Figure captions Ensure that each illustration has a caption. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.
Tables can be placed next to the relevant text in the article. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
References Citation in text Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style according to the Harvard Cite Them Right format
Please use PRISMA framework/checklist for the literature review to make sure you haven’t missed any important area in publication
please put a copy of each checklist per article in the appendix for evidence of this academic writing exercise.
