    Background: Only use boldface for headings, and use headings if applicable only; preferably do not require a standard set of headings for every abstract as this often leads to artificial structuring.
    Material and Methods: If the heading comprises multiple entities, use a starting capital for each entity.
    Preliminary results: As this heading refers to only 1 entity, the second word has no capital. If a table is included, refer to it using “Table”, (e.g. Table 1).
