Structure of The Manuscript

  1. The title should be short, clear, and informative, but no more than 20 words. It must be appropriate to the issue being discussed. The article title does not contain any unusual abbreviations. The main idea should be written first and followed by an explanation.
  2. Author's name and institution. The author's name must be accompanied by the author's institution, institutional address, and email address, without academic title and position (maximum 5 authors).
  3. Abstracts are written in one paragraph with a maximum of 200 words in Indonesian and English. For research articles, the abstract should provide a relevant description of the work. We strongly encourage authors to use the following structured abstract style, but without a title: (1) Background: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the research; (2) Method: Briefly describe the main method or theoretical framework applied; (3) Results: Summarize the main findings of the research results; and (4) Conclusion: Shows the main conclusions or interpretations.
  4. Keywords: List three to five related keywords specific to the article; but are quite common in the subject discipline; use lowercase letters except for names
  5. Introduction: should briefly place the study in its broad context and highlight its importance. It should define the purpose of the work and its significance. The current state of the research field should be reviewed carefully, and key publications should be cited. Please highlight controversial and diverging hypotheses where appropriate. Finally, briefly state the main objectives of the work and highlight the main conclusions. To the extent possible, please keep the introduction as understandable as possible for scholars outside your particular field of research. References should be cited as (Kamba, 2018) or (Marchlewska et al., 2019) or (Cicchocka, 2016; Hidayat & Khalika, 2019; Ikhwan, 2019; Madjid, 2002) or (Miller & Josephs, 2009, p. 12) or Rahmat (1989). See the end of the document for further details on references. Technical terms must be defined. Symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms must be defined the first time they are used. All tables and figures must be listed in numerical order. Research methods should be included in the Introduction. The method contains an explanation of the research approach, research subject, implementation of research procedures, use of materials and instruments, data collection, and analysis techniques.
  6. Method: Method writing contains research design, place and time, population and sample, data measurement techniques, and data analysis. It is best to use passive sentences and narrative sentences, not command sentences.
  7. Results: those obtained from research must be supported by adequate data. Research results and findings must be answers or research hypotheses stated previously in the introduction.
  8. Discussion: Authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from the perspective of previous research and the working hypothesis. The findings and implications should be discussed in the broadest possible context. Future research directions can also be highlighted. The following components should be included in the discussion: How do your results relate to the initial question or goal outlined in the Introduction (what/how) section? Do you provide a scientific interpretation for each result or finding you present (why)? Are your results consistent with what other researchers have reported (what else)? Or is there a difference?
  9. Conclusion: must answer the research objectives and research findings. The closing remarks should not only contain a repetition of results and discussion or an abstract. You should also suggest future research and demonstrate ongoing research.
  10. Bibliography: listed in the Bibliography only contains sources referred to or included in the article. It is best to prepare references with a bibliography software package, such as Mendeley, EndNote, Reference Manager, or Zotero to avoid typing errors and duplicate references. Reference sources must provide 80% of journal articles, proceedings, or research results over the last five years that have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Technique for writing a bibliography, using the APA (American Psychological Association) Style citing system and 7th edition.
