The Guidelines for Writing Article

The article employs double-spaced (2 space), uses A4 paper size, Old Style Bookman typography, 11 pts font size, except for tables, graphics, pictures, etc, which adjusts the author's requisite, or, unless the formats are specific in each article section (eg. , references, etc). The length of the article including abstracts, correspondence, content, and references is 4,500 to 5,500 words. Table is presented in the middle of the text with its information is aligned with the left margin and located above the table flat table placed above the table. Pictures and graphs are presented in the middle of the text with the information is placed on the bottom of the objects. Each table, picture, and graph is counted as 200 words. The entire manuscript (including tables, images and mathematical equations) is written in an editable format for editors.

Systematic of the Article

The results of a systematic study consist of: title, author's name (without academic degree), full address of the author's institution, correspondence address, abstract, keywords, introduction (without sub-chapter), hypothesis development (if any), research methods, results and discussions, conclusions, suggestions, and bibliography. The followings are the instructions for each section of the manuscript and other things required in writing the manuscript.

Conceptual paper is not accepted.


The title consists of a maximum of 15 words with initial capital letters for each word.

Identity of Author

Authors name are written sequentially lengthwise from the first author without academic degree. Authors addresses are written complete including the name of the institution, the road, and the country. Write the phone/ mobile phone number and email correspondence.


The abstract is written in English and containing 150-200 words in a paragraph. The abstract contains the research purpose, methods, results, and novelty.

Purpose: This is where you explain ‘why’ you undertook this study. If you are presenting new or novel research, explain the problem that you have solved. If you are building upon previous research, briefly explain why you felt it was important to do so. This is your opportunity to let readers know why you chose to study this topic or problem and its relevance. Let them know what your key argument or main finding is.

Method: This is ‘how’ you did it. Let readers know exactly what you did to reach your results. For example, did you undertake interviews? Did you carry out an experiment in the lab? What tools, methods, protocols or datasets did you use?

Findings: Here you can explain ‘what’ you found during your study, whether it answers the problem you set out to explore, and whether your hypothesis was confirmed. You need to be very clear and direct and give exact figures, rather than generalise.  It’s important not to exaggerate or create an expectation that your paper won’t fulfill. 

Novelty: This is your opportunity to provide readers with an analysis of the value of your results. It’s a good idea to ask colleagues whether your analysis is balanced and fair and again, it’s important not to exaggerate. You can also conjecture what future research steps could be.


Keywords are mentioned below the abstract, written in English or Indonesian, containing 3 to 6 words or phrases. The keywords contain words or phrases which are often used in manuscripts and considered to represent and / or relate to the topic discussed.


Introduction is written without subtitles / sub chapters and stating the outset of articles substance containing topics, gap phenomena / research gap / theoretical gap, problems, objectives, originality, grand theory / theory used in the study, and hypothesis formulation. Introduction offers theoretical concepts, ideas, and presents the findings of previous research as comparators, as well as the strengthening, enrichment and refinement of discussion, analysis and interpretation. The presentation should be coherent chronologically and the logical relationship between one paragraph and the following paragraph should be clear.


Method is the sufficient information for the reader to follow the research flow well, so that the reader who will examine or develop similar research obtains the description of the research steps. This section describes the types of research and data types, population and sample, operational research variables, the data used (types and sources), data collection technique, and data analysis technique (model analysis).

Result and Discussion

The results are presented systematically, written without sub-chapters and written out completely in advance, then the author writes result discussion. The result narration contains the information, which is taken from the data, does not tell the data as it is, but tell the meaning of the data or information. For the information clarification purposes, author can add tables, images, etc. In addition, the results also present the items listed in the research objectives or the results of hypothesis examination which is proposed along with each step taken to the examination as written in the method section.

Discussion suggests results interpretation, argument development by linking the results, theories, and opinions, including the comparison with previous research results. It is also important to raise the possibility of their research results contribution to the development of science. This section does not rewrite the data on the research results.


Conclusion answers the objectives of research or study based on more comprehensive meaning of results and discussion of research. Suggestions are addressed for practical action (to the participating institution), for the development of new theories, and for further research.
