INTRODUCTION

          A strong introduction engages the reader in the problem of interest and provides a context for the study at hand. In introducing the research concern, focusing down to the specific problem you studied, placing the study in the context of current knowledge and prior theoretical and empirical work on the topic. Within this framework, using 16-point TH SarabunPSK in 2 column for all contents in manuscript except for the minor topics use italicized,  the hypotheses of the current study and their correspondence to the research design must be following APA format.

          Setting page layout as 18.5×26 cm in 2 columns, keep space 0.5 cm between each column. Margins are 2 cm on the left side and bottom, 1.5 cm on the right and top. Paper orientation in all pages should be in portrait style and please do not write or print outside of the column parameters. Leave two blank lines after the end of each part. (Before = 6pt and after = 6pt)

MATERIALS AND METHODS

Guidelines for all main text

       In this section you explain clearly how you carried out your study in the following general structure and organization.Type your major topics in bolded 16-point in center of column, 14-point italicized on the left of document for minor topics. All main text must be in single-spaced. Do not use double-spacing. All paragraphs should be indented 1 pica (approximately 1/6- or 0.17-inch or 0.43 cm). Be sure your text is fully justified, flush left and flush right. Please do not place any additional blank lines between paragraphs.

Equations

       Including symbols and equations in the text, the variable name and style must be consistent with those in the equations. Equations should be indented at the left margin and numbered at the right margin, equation number is enclosed with open and close parenthesis (). TH SarabunPSK in style and 14-point font size. Define all symbols the first time they are used. All equation symbols must be defined in a clear and understandable way.

For Example:   A+B = 2C

Figures

         Place figures as close as possible to the text they refer to and aligned center. Photos, graphs, charts or diagram must be labeled Figure (do not abbreviate) in bolded. The label and title should be in line with the figure number and left justified. However it is recommended that figures are not sized less than column width unless when necessary.

Figure 1 Sample (Reference: Reference of figure)

Table

       Each Table or Figure must include a brief description of the results being presented and other necessary information in a legend. Figures can be sized between column and page widths if the author chooses, however it is recommended that figures are not sized less than column width unless when necessary.All table must be labeled Table  no vertical line, no boldface type except the topic.

Table 1 Sample

          Results should be clear and concise and guide the reader through your results stressing the key results which provide the answers to the question(s) investigated. A major function of the text is to provide clarifying information. You must refer to each Table and/or Figure individually and in sequence, and clearly indicate for the reader the key results that each conveys. Key results depend on your questions, they might include obvious trends, important differences, similarities, correlations, maximums, minimums, etc.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS

          In writing the Discussion, researchers should focus on interpreting the results in light of the research questions.A strong Discussion section notes areas of consensus with and divergence from previous work. New authors should make particular efforts to attend to connections with existing literature. Such attunement strengthens the communicative function of the research article within the framework of the broader scientific literature.

CONCLUSION

          A conclusion section is not required. Although a conclusion may review the main points of the paper, do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion. A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

          If, in your experiment, you received any significant help in thinking up, designing, or carrying out the work, or received materials from someone who did you a favor by supplying them, you must acknowledge their assistance and the service or material provided.

REFERRENCES

         The Vancouver style Citations and Format, the template will number citations consecutively within brackets. In-text citation numbers should be placed after the relevant part of a sentence. Refer simply to the reference number, as in (1)- do not use “Ref. (1)” or “reference (1)”.

Example

              Recently, the health sciences community has reduced the bias and imprecision of traditional literature summaries through the development of rigorous criteria for both literature overviews (1-3) and practice guidelines (4, 5). Even when recommendations come from such rigorous approaches, however, “it is important to differentiate between those based on weak vs. strong evidence” (6). Recommendations based on inadequate evidence often require reversal when sufficient data become available, (John Doe,
April 1, 2002) while timely implementation of recommendations based on strong evidence can save lives (3).

Basic Guidelines for Writing References

1. Authors: List each author’s last name followed by a space and then initials without any periods; there is a comma and space between authors and a period at the end of the last author. If the number of authors exceeds six, give the first six followed by “et al.”.

Example

            Saranya Jantang  Use  Jantang S.

            William Turner    Use  Turner W.

            Mark R. Brinker    Use  Brinker MR.

2. Title: Capitalize the first letter of the first word in the title. The rest of the title is in lower-case, with the exception of proper names. Do not underline the title; do not use italics. If there is an edition for a book, it appears after the title, abbreviated and followed by a period, for example: 3rd ed.

3. Pages: For journals, the entire page range of an article is given, not the specific page on which the information was found.

Example

            Page 11-22 Use 11-22

            Page 10-19 Use 10-9

            Page 1151-1160 Use 1151-60

            Page S92-S102 Use S92-102

            Page 112A-122A Use 112A-122A
