Information of article

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

 

Abstract (In English and Bahasa)

The abstract should 100–150 words and written in English. An abstract is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the article; it allows readers to survey the contents of an article quickly and, like a title, it enables persons interested in the document to retrieve it from abstracting and indexing databases. Most scholarly journals require an abstract. Consult the instructions to authors or web page of the journal to which you plan to submit your article for any journal-specific instructions. A well-prepared abstract can be the most important single paragraph in an article. Most people have their first contact with an article by seeing just the abstract, usually in comparison with several other abstracts, as they are doing a literature search. Readers frequently decide on the basis of the abstract whether to read the entire article. The abstract needs to be dense with information. By embedding key words in your abstract, you enhance the user's ability to find it. Do not exceed the abstract word limit of the journal to which you are submitting your article.

Keywords: no more than five words

 

A. Introduction

The article should be between 12 - ‎‎18 pages, font style: Times New Roman‎, font size: 12pt, ‎space: exactly 1. The paragraph should ‎be indented first line 1 cm.

The introduction should be between 2-3 pages. In composing ‎the introduction, you should provide an ‎adequate background. Explain how you ‎addressed the problem, and why it is ‎important to answer the problem, and also ‎clearly state the aims of the study (how ‎you think their answer would contribute to ‎the existing scholarship on the subject).‎

 

 
  

 

You should also discuss the ‎relation of your research article with other ‎research(s), and any related theories ‎‎(especially from the most relevant theories, ‎and high reputation journals) should also ‎be written briefly in the Introduction.

 

B. Method

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.

Explain briefly about the research ‎method involving research design, ‎population and sample, research ‎instruments, data collection and development instruments‎, ‎and data analysis. A very detailed ‎description of your research method is not ‎necessary to write.

Specify the research design in the Method section. Were subjects placed into conditions that were manipulated, or were they observed naturalistically? If multiple conditions were created, how were participants assigned to conditions, through random assignment or some other selection mechanism? Was the study conducted as a between-subjects or a within-subject design?

 

C. Result and Discussion

The results presented in this section should be the subject of the results. Data analysis processes such as statistical calculations and hypothesis testing processes do not need to be displayed. Tables and diagrams can be used to explain the results that are presented verbally, and must be explained or discussed.

Results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Please highlight differences between your results or findings and the previous publications by other researchers.

The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

In discussion, it is the most important section of your article. Here you get the chance to sell your data. Make the discussion corresponding to the results, but do not reiterate the results. Often should begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings (not experimental results). The following components should be covered in discussion: How do your results relate to the original question or objectives outlined in the Introduction section (what)? Do you provide interpretation scientifically for each of your results or findings presented (why)? Are your results consistent with what other investigators have reported (what else)? Or are there any differences?

After presenting the results, you are in a position to evaluate and interpret their implications, especially with respect to your original hypotheses. Here you will examine, interpret, and qualify the results and draw inferences and conclusions from them. Emphasize any theoretical or practical consequences of the results. (When the discussion is relatively brief and straightforward, some authors prefer to combine it with the Results section, creating a section called Results and Discussion.)

 

D. Conclusion

This section contains conclusions and suggestions. The conclusion presents a summary of the results and discussion of the article and is based on the research objectives. Suggestions can be based on practical action, new theory development, and/or further research.

 

Acknowledgment

Recognition, appreciation, or thanks to certain groups such as “research sponsors”, must be stated clearly and concisely."
