The manuscript texts are written in Indonesia or English. 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, use 12 pt of Times New Roman. 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 of articles in English should describe the main content of papers, be informative, concise, and not too wordy (12-15 words only), and do not contain formulas.
- The author’s name
Full name without academic degrees and titles, written in capital letters. Manuscript written by groups needs to supplemented by complete contact details.
- Name of affiliation for each author
The author's name should be accompanied by a complete affiliation address, postal code number, telephone number, and email address.
Written briefly in English in one paragraph of 150-200 words, containing background, research objectives, methodology, results, the conclusion of the study, and your research contributions to science.
Written in English 3-5 words or groups of words, written alphabetically.
Explaining the background, problems, importance of research, a brief literature review that relates directly to research or previous findings that need to be developed, and ended with a paragraph of research purposes. A balance must be kept between the pure and applied aspects of the subject. The introduction is presented in the form of 15% of the content.
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.
- Results and Discussion
Well-prepared tables and or figures must be of the 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. 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 discussion be focused on the why and how the research findings can happen and to extend to which the research findings can be applied to other relevant problems.
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.
Contributors who are not mentioned as authors should be acknowledged, and their particular contribution 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
Manuscripts are written by using standard citation applications (Mendeley/Endnote/Zotero). APA (American Psychological Association) reference style is required. Citing an article written by two authors, both authors should be mentioned. However, for three and more authors, only the first author is mentioned, followed by et al., for example, Rahayu & Sudarsono (2015), Subekti et al. (2014). A series of references should be presented in ascending date order (Retnoningsih et al., 2005; Indriyanti et al., 2007; Rahayuningsih, 2010). Different publications with the same author(s) and year will be presented separately, as follows 2013a, 2013b. References of unpublished data and personal communication should not appear in the list but should be cited in the text only (e.g., Rifai MA 2015, pers. com. (personal connection); Indriyanti DR 2014, unpublished data). In the reference list, the references should be listed in alphabetical order. Expect a minimum of 20 texts with five references 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 % references can be cited from research reports and or articles.
