Quotations should be integrated in the text, except for those exceeding 3 lines. Separate quotations should be formatted with Left Indent: 0.5 and Right Indent: 0.5, without quotation marks.
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
Bullet and numbering within body text are not recommended. All sentences should be typed as descriptive paragraphs.
Tables are sequentially numbered with the table title and number above the table (11pt). Tables should be centered in the column OR on the page. Tables should be followed by a line space. Elements of a table should be single-spaced (9pt). However, double spacing can be used to show groupings of data or to separate parts within the table. Table headings should be horizontal in 9pt. Tables are referred in the text by the table number, e.g., Table 1. Do not show the vertical line in the table. There is only horizontal line should be shown in the table, as well as table heading.
Figures and charts are sequentially numbered commencing at 1, for example, with the figure/chart title and number below the figure/chart as shown in Figure 1/Chart Detailed recommendations for figures and charts are as follows:
Structure of the manuscript consists of three parts:
The Content of articles (11pt) is divided into:
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 studies, to show the main limitation of the previous research, to show what you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation) and to show what scientific merit or novelties of your paper is. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Do not describe literature survey as author by author, but should be presented as group per method or topic reviewed which refers to some literatures.
Example of novelty statement or the gap analysis statement in the end of Introduction section (after state of the art of previous research survey): “........ (short summary of background)....... A few researchers focused on ....... There have been limited studies concerned on ........ Therefore, this research intends to ................. The objectives of this research are .........”.
RESEARCH METHODS (10-15% of the total article length)
The research method for research-based articles consists of description concerning the research design, data sources, data collection, and data analysis.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION (40-60% of the total article length)
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/how)? 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?
CONCLUSION AND SUGGESTION (5-10% of the total article length)
Conclusions should answer the objectives of the 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.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT (5-10% of the total article length)
Recognize those who helped in the research, especially funding supporter of your research. Include individuals who have assisted you in your study: Advisors, Financial supporters, or may another supporter, i.e. Proofreaders, Typists, and Suppliers, who may have given materials.
