Often, they are presented as pilot studies, where the feasibility of doing a larger project is studied; thus, you are examining a hypotheses and checking to see whether one can go farther with it (though reasons for not doing so may be logistical as well as scientific). Think of my own work on journal use, where we found some of the cells had no data in them, making it impossible to do any further work since no statistical analysis was possible.

The graphical abstract should summarize/ precise the contents of the article and in a pictorial form with a caption that describes the whole picture (Not more than 50 words).
