PERSPECTIVE (updated on 26 January 2021)

A perspective article presents a new and unique viewpoint on existing problems, fundamental concepts, or prevalent notions on a specific topic, propose and support a new hypothesis, or discuss the implications of a newly implemented innovation. Perspective pieces may focus on current advances and future directions on a topic, and may include original data as well as personal opinion. This is a short peer-reviewed article of around 2000-3000 words. A perspective article usually includes a short abstract of around 150 words and a few tables and figures, if required.

The main document has no authors' detail. All illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end of the manuscript.
