3. ABSTRACT. The Abstract is written in one paragraph containing 150 - 250 WORDS; No citation; State in the abstract a general statement about the impotence of the topic, gap in literature or discrepancies between theories and practices, purpose of the study, method, main findings, and conclusions. Abstracts for each language can only be written in one paragraph in a single column format. Keywords: Written in English 2-5 words or groups of words, written alphabetically.
4. INTRODUCTION (12pt, Cambria). The introduction must contain (in sequence) a general background, a state of the art as a basis for statements of scientific novelty from articles, statements of scientific novelty, and research problems or hypotheses. At the end of the introduction, the purpose of the article review must be written. In the format of scientific articles, literature review is not permitted as in the research report, but is manifested in the form of a state of the art study to show the scientific novelty of the article.
5. RESEARCH METHOD (12pt, Cambria). This section contains author(s)’s sufficient detail of the preparation of the current study dealing with data collection and processing. The author(s) should convey a chronological explanation of the study, covering preparation of research materials, design, and research procedures. Furthermore, it is requirred to supply an explanation regarding the method(s) used in the research. This section fills 10-15% of the manuscript.
This subsection contains author(s)’s statements regarding the design of the research selected from one of three approaches in conducting a research, i.e. qualitative, quantitative, or mixed research. Each approach offers various research designs for various research designs. This subsection should be part of section about method. Hence, it also provides brief description of variables of the study.
Population and Sample or Subject
This subsection is used to declare the number of population and sample or the subject(s) selected for a qualitative study. In selecting sample and subject, please declare your technique and/or your parameter. Furthermore, in a study using study groups, write in brief about how groups are allocated.
This subsecion describe shortly about equipment, instruments or measurement tools including model number and manufacturer being used.
In data analysis subsection, the author(s) is required to process data from previous stage. Different method used may result on different model of data processing. For a quantitative study, author(s) should show how s/he calculated derived variables (to deal with outlying values and missing data). Hence, s/he has to summarize the data. Analysis using software should be completed with details (name and version of the software). For statistical tests, please mention reference for less commonly used tests and what was compared. It is also suggested to give critical alpha probability (p) value at which differences or relationships were considered to be statistically significant.
6. Research findings and Discussion (12pt, Cambria). This subsection contains author(s)’s statements regarding the design of the research selected from one of three approaches in conducting a research, i.e. qualitative, quantitative, or mixed research. Each approach offers various research designs for various research designs. For example, in quantitative study, there are pre-experimental, true-experimental, and quasi-experimental research designs. Meanwhile, qualitative and mixed methods offer other designs. This subsection should be part of section about method. Hence, it also provides brief description of variables of the study.
7. Conclusion and suggestion (12pt, Cambria). The conclusion describes the answer to the hypothesis and / or the purpose of the research or scientific findings obtained. Conclusions do not contain repetitions of the results and discussion, but rather summarize the findings as expected in the objectives or hypotheses. In this section, the author(s) should give his/her comprise statement regarding the major findings and implications of the study, but not the whole study. It is not suggested to bring any new information in the conclusion.
8. Acknowledgment (optional) (12pt, Times New Roman). This section can be written in case there are certain parties need to be acknowledged, such as research sponsors. The acknowledgement must be written in brief and clear. In addition, avoid the hyperbole acknowledgment
9. References (12pt, Cambria). The references are written in APA style. All references referred to in the text of the article must be registered in the References section. The bibliography must contain reference libraries originating from primary sources (scientific journals and amounting to a minimum of 80% of the total bibliography) published in the last 10 (ten) years. Each article contains at least 10 (ten) references. Writing a referral system in an article text and writing a bibliography should use a reference management application program, for example: Mendeley, EndNote, or Zotero, or others.
