As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

Author Guidelines

The article should conform to the following requirements:

  • The length of the article is approximately 3000-5000 words including all pictures, tables, references, etc.
  • Title of the paper should not exceed 20 words.
  • Abstract. The abstract is a summary of the article. It consists of research objective, research methods, the principal results and major conclusions. Implications or recommendation can be added in the abstract. The abstract must be written in one paragraph in English (the Indonesian version is written separately below the English abstract). The length of the abstract is less than 250 words.
  • Keywords. After the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, "and", "of"). These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
  • Introduction. The introduction consists of the background of the study explaining the actual phenomenon that has been investigated, supported by references and previous studies. The author must also explain the state of the art compared to those of the previous studies. The introduction is the section where you point out the gap in knowledge that the rest of the paper will fill. The introduction contains the problem(s) becoming the focus of the study, the purpose(s) of the study, the significance(s) of the research, and theories used to solve the problem(s).
  • Method. The method section describes actions to be taken to investigate a research problem and the rationale for the application of specific procedures or techniques used to identify, select, process, and analyze information applied to understanding the problem, thereby, allowing the reader to critically evaluate a study’s overall validity and reliability. This section contains the explanation of the data collection and data analysis procedures. The writing should be direct and precise and always written in the past tense. Use subheadings to separate different methodologies.
  • Results and Discussion. This section contains a description of the main findings of a research, whereas the discussion section interprets the results for readers and provides the significance of the findings. This section should not repeat the results section. Authors may use tables, figures, or texts (when they don’t have extensive or complicated data to present) in the results section.
  • Conclusion. Conclusion provides closure for the reader while reminding the reader of the contents and importance of the paper. Conclusion simply and concisely restates the main ideas and arguments, pulling everything together to help clarify the thesis of the paper. A conclusion does not introduce new ideas; instead, it should clarify the intent and importance of the paper. This section may also contain suggestion.
  • References. Use at least 15 references consisting of relevant and recent primary sources. A few of classic references are welcome; however, 80% of references should be taken from the last ten year studies. The references must be written in APA style and use reference manager softwares such as Mendeley, Zotero, etc.
  • Articles should be submitted in softcopy using document format (.doc or .docx) to the Online Submission page.
