Abstract
Keywords

II. Section 2

B. Subsection 2
III. Section 3
IV. Conclusion
References

After first draft, try to write your paper in your own words in MS Word. It is appropriate to perform a genuine research work and put your research results on paper.

References Style:

Use “Endnote” software for including references in your paper or manually put them without use of any software but strictly follow the IEEE format, which is the requirement of VU.

Say no to Piracy:

Please always discourage from obtaining the ready-made research/term paper from any source. Always try to write your own research paper by yourself. I hope these guidelines will be helpful to you. Stay blessed and remember in your prayers………………By Rao Tariq
