The paper should therefore provide sufficient evidence of the validity of these results. It should be clear that a presented design, technique, tool or method solves the stated problem; and that a presented model, finding, or guideline is based on sound methods of study and analysis.
  • Originality of the work: The paper must identify and cite published work relevant to the paper topic. It should explain how the presented work has built on previous contributions, and should indicate where and why novel approaches have been adopted.
