Specific Guidelines for Writing Manuscript Content

Article Title

The title must describe the subject of the text, be clear, and not have multiple interpretations. Please suggest a better title if needed.


The introduction must contain (in sequence) a general background, a previous literature review (state of the art, novelty) as a basis for the statement of scientific renewal of the article, a statement of scientific novelty, and a research problem or hypothesis. At the end of the introduction, the objectives of the article should be written. In the scientific article format, it is not permissible to review the literature as in the research report but is manifested in the form of a previous literature review (state of the art) to demonstrate the scientific novelty of the article.

Research method

Write down in detail the methods applied in gathering data and analyzing problems

Results and Discussion

Write the findings of research findings and discussion scientifically. Write scientific findings (scientific findings) obtained from the results of research that has been done but must be supported by adequate data. The scientific findings referred to here are not the research data obtained. The findings must be explained scientifically including: Are scientific findings obtained? Why did that happen? Why is the trend variable like that? All of these questions must be explained scientifically, not only descriptive if necessary supported by adequate basic scientific phenomena. In addition, it should be explained also the comparison with the results of other researchers who are almost the same topic. Research results and findings must be able to answer the research hypotheses in the introduction.


Write answers to hypotheses and/or research objectives or scientific findings obtained. Conclusions do not contain a repeat of the results and discussion, but rather a summary of the findings as expected in the objectives or hypotheses. If necessary, at the end of the conclusion can also be written things that will be done related to further ideas from the research.


All references referred to in the article text must be registered in the Bibliography section. The bibliography must contain references that come from primary sources (scientific journals and a minimum of 80% of the total bibliography) published in the last 10 (ten) years. Each article contains at least 15 (fifteen) references. Writing a reference system in the text of the article and writing a bibliography should use a reference management application program for example Mendeley, EndNote, or Zotero, or others.


Guidelines for Writing Equations

Each equation is written in the middle of the column and given a number written in brackets and placed at the end of the right margin. Equations must be written using Equation Editor in MS Word or Open Office (Primack, 1983).

Guidelines for Writing Quotations / Reference in Article Text Every time you take data or cite statements from other libraries, the writer is obliged to write the source of the reference. Reference or citation is written in the description/text by means of the author's name and year along with the page if from the book (Irwan and Salim, 1998: 80). If there are more than two authors, then only the first author's name is written followed by "et al" or "et al." (Bezuidenhout et al., 2009; Roeva, 2012: 90). Everything referred to in the text must be registered in the Bibliography section, and vice versa, everything written in the Bibliography must be referred to in the text (Wang et al., 2011).
