Author Guideline

The manuscript texts are written in English (See Template). Editorial boards will first review manuscripts. The main version of a manuscript must be submitted as a Word document (.doc) file. The manuscript consists of 2500-5500 words, well-typed in a single column on A4 size paper, using 10 pt of Georgia. The script contains an original work and has potentially contributed to the highly scientific advancement.

The manuscript should contain the following section in this order:

  • Title
    The title of articles in English should describe the main content of papers, be informative, concise, and not too wordy (12-15 words only), and not contain formulas.
  • The author’s name
    Full name without academic degrees and titles. Manuscript written by groups needs to be supplemented by complete contact details. 
  • Name of affiliation for each author
    The author's name should be accompanied by the department, faculty, and university by a complete affiliation address with country and email address.
  • Abstract
    Written briefly in English in one paragraph of 150-250 words, containing background, research objectives, methodology, results, the conclusion of the study, and your research contributions to science.
  • Keywords
    Written in English 3-5 words or groups of words, written alphabetically.
  • Introduction
    The introduction must contain a complete description of the problem that is narrated in a clear and detailed manner and includes the research problem, insight and problem solve planning, state-of-the-art or summary of theoretical studies and the results of the present study related to the observed issues (gap) or reveal the novelty of the paper discussed, research aims, and the implication of research. The contents of the introduction are written in the regular Georgia 10 font, 0 pt before spacing and 0 pt after spacing.
    In the Introduction, authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of introduction section. Before the objective, authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Do not describe literature survey as author by author, but should be presented as group per method or topic reviewed which refers to some literatures.

    Example of novelty statement or the gap analysis statement in the end of Introduction section (after state of the art of previous research survey): “........ (short summary of background)....... A few researchers focused on ....... There have been limited studies concerned on ........ Therefore, this research intends to ................. The objectives of this research are .........”.

    The introduction should be written using the simple present tense. It must be supported by a minimum of three recent international journal articles in the past ten years. Authors need to avoid presenting data in tables or pictures or complete research results; writing only the results or conclusions is highly recommended. Reference writing follows the APA 7th edition system, which starts with the surname or last name of the first author and is followed by et al. if the author is more than two people, then followed by the reference publication year (Nakasone et al., 2019).
    Paragraph writing is in the form of one column aligned to the left and right margins, except that every time you start the first line of the paragraph, it must indent within 10 letters of the left margin. Reference writing cannot be a direct quote and must follow the description of the previous statement.

  • Method
    Make sure that work can be repeated according to the details provided. It contains technical information about the study presented clearly. Therefore, readers can conduct research based on the techniques presented. Materials and equipment specifications are necessary. Approaches or procedures of education, together with data analysis methods, must be performed.
    This section describes the way the research was done. The main materials must be written here: (1) research design; (2) population and samples; (3) sample collection techniques and instrumental development; and (4) data analysis techniques. The specification and type of tools and materials must be written in case the researches have been conducted by using them. The method section should be narrated in paragraph form containing clear sentences, but if the research procedures and analysis techniques are too long, they may be presented in the form of a flow chart.
    This section should not write down the theoretical basis except for the basis for confirmation or decision making. Furthermore, a reference may be written which is the basis for the modification of the research procedure or analysis technique used. Then suggested that the authors avoid organizing the article content into smaller parts than the second subheading in this section.

    Writing formula or calculation formula with the insert facility equation from Microsoft word. No crop-copy-paste, use the equation. The layout of writing justifies formulas with initial letters parallel to the left margin and is followed by the sequence number of the formula in brackets (…). Each symbol contained in the formula must be given information as in the following example:
    Where CVR is the Content Validity Ratio, Ne is the number of validators who agree on the validity of the media, and N is the total number of validators.

  • Results and Discussion 
    Well-prepared tables and or figures must be a significant feature of this section because they convey the major observations to readers. Any information provided in tables and figures should no longer be repeated in the text, but the b should focus on the importance of the principal findings of the study. In general, journal papers will contain three-seven figures and tables. The same data can not be presented in the form of tables and figures. The results of the study are discussed to address the problem formulated, objectives, and research hypotheses. It is highly suggested that the discussion be focused on the why and how the research findings can happen and to the extent to which the research findings can be applied to other relevant problems.
    The discussion of the article aims to: (1) answer the problems and research questions; (2) show the ways the findings were obtained; (3) interpret the findings; (4) relate the finding results to the settled-knowledge structure; and (5) bring up new theories or modify the existing theories. The materials reported are the analysis results and hypothesis testing results. In addition, tables and graphics are also can be shown to enunciate the verbal narration. Tables and images must be given comments or discussions. The details of qualitative research are written in some sub-topics which directly related to the focused category. Simple research data is simply narrated in the form of complete and clear sentences, while complex data is presented in the form of tables and or pictures as needed.

    Research results must be clearly concluded in answering the research questions. Interpreting the findings should be done by using logics and present theories. The findings in form of facts found in the research fields are integrated into previous researches or present theories. This must be supported by reliable references.
    Citation and referencing must be written based on APA style 7th Edition which is organized by using Mendeley software’s latest version. References used at least 20, 80% primary sources (journals and research reports including thesis and dissertation) and 10 (ten) years of publication. The minimum of 35% recent international journals.

  • Conclusion 
    The conclusion should be withdrawn based on research findings, formulated concerns, and research purposes. The conclusion is presented in one paragraph without the numerical form of expression. Explain your research contributions to science. The writing systematics is aligned left-right and only the first line is indented into 10 letters using the usual Georgia 10 pt. The suggestions, which are arranged based on research discussed-findings, are also written in this part.
  • Acknowledgment 
    Contributors who are not mentioned as authors should be acknowledged, and their particular contributions should be described. All sources of funding for the work must be acknowledged, both the research funder and the grant number (if applicable) should be given for each source of funds
  • References
    Manuscripts are written by using standard citation applications (Mendeley/Endnote/Zotero). APA (American Psychological Association) style 7 edition reference is required. In the reference list, the references should be listed in alphabetical order. Expect a minimum of 20 texts with five references to international journals. More or less 80% of references for literature reviews should be the recent (up to date) journals published in the last ten years, but the rest of 20% of references can be cited from research reports and or articles.
