Title of Manuscript

no more than 16 words; Author(s) name: is fully writen without any title; Institution: is completely stated, including the study program and the institution name; Corresponding author: includes name & email address

Abstract : The abstract should be clear, concise, and descriptive. This abstract should provide a brief introduction to the problem, objective of paper, followed by a statement regarding the methodology and a brief summary of results. The abstract should end with a comment on the significance of the results or a brief conclusion., preferably not more than 200 words.


In 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.


Materials and methods should make readers be able to reproduce the experiment. Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Do not repeat the details of established methods.



Results and discussion should be clear and provides an explanation of all the data of research and data linkage with the theory and the results of previous research conducted by other researchers. The discussion should explore the significance of the research results, avoiding overly broad quotes from the literature.Discussion is the most important part of your article. Here you get a chance to sell your data. Make the discussion in accordance with the results, but not repeat the results. The following components that should be covered in the discussion are: How does the research result relate to the original question or objectives outlined in the Introduction section? Does the study provide a scientific interpretation for each of the results? Are your results consistent with what other researchers have reported (what else)?

Tables and graphs can be used to clarify the presentation of research results verbally. Tables and figures must be provided commented or discussed.


Conclusions should answer the objectives of research. Tells how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. Without clear Conclusions, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it merits publication in the journal. Do not repeat the Abstract, or just list experimental results. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out those that are underway.


Acknowledgments are addressed to parties / agencies that contribute to research activities other than the authors.

It is arguable to say that education should promote freedom and social justice (Ramli, 2019 for single author, and Saridewi et al., 2021 for multiple authors).
