Overall Quality and Content：

• Have appropriate keywords been selected?
• Is the Abstract well written and organized?

What constitutes a good Title?
A good title should:
• Identify (briefly) the subject
• Indicate the purpose of the study
The title should supply enough information for a reader to make a reliable decision on probable interest. A short informative title is preferred over a long obtuse one. Titles should not exceed 10 words, except in unusual instances.
What constitutes a good Abstract?
The purpose of an Abstract is to provide a clear and concise summary of the information presented in an article. The basic organization of an Abstract includes a topic sentence or hypothesis (rationale) of the work, a brief description of the methods, a summary of the results, and a conclusion. Literature citations and references to tables, figures, or equations should be placed in the body of the paper to be submitted later.
The topic sentence states the purpose of the research. What was studied? What hypothesis was tested?
A brief description of the methods should give the reader an idea of the general approach used by the researcher. What kinds of subjects were used? How were the control and experimental groups treated? Two or three sentences are usually enough; anyone who wants to repeat the research will go to the main article for full details on the procedure. The abstract should contain only enough about methodology to provide a context for the results, which are presented later.
A summary of the results should include the major trends. The goal of the Abstract is to state only the most important results of the study. Data may be given to emphasize the results; group size, p-values, or other statistical results should be provided in summary form.
A concise statement of the conclusions that can be drawn from the study completes the Abstract. Results should not be restated here. The researcher may wish to place the work in perspective by stating whether the report confirms or extends the findings of previous researchers.
A researcher preparing an Abstract should think:
1. This is what we studied.
2. This is how we did it.
3. This is what we learned.
4. This is what it means.

A list of not more than seven keywords or phrases should be included with your abstract (all lower case except proper nouns)
