A. Guidelines for Research-based Articles
The title should be accurate, unambiguous, specific, and complete.
Author (s) Name, affiliation, and E-mail address
The name(s) of the author(s) of the article are listed without academic degrees and followed by the authors' affiliations.
Abstract is written in English, consists of 150-250 words, and provides a summary of the research objectives, method, results/findings, and conclusion. Keywords consist of 3 to 6 words and are written alphabetically.
Introduction should be clear and provide the issue to be discussed in the manuscript. Before the objective, authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions, to show which is the best of previous researches, gap analysis to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper and purpose of the research. At the end of the paragraph, the author/s should end with a comment on the significance concerning identification of the issue and objective of the research.
Literature review should be inserted or integrated in the introduction. This section summarizes, analyzes, and critically evaluates relevant sources (theories, methods, and gaps). In this case, the purposes are to evaluate the current state of your research and demonstrate your knowledge of scholarly debates around the topic.
This section describes how the research is conducted. Provide a vivid description of the method used, so that the readers are able to evaluate its relevancies with the research objectives. The research theories, research participants/samples/subjects, and research instruments should be stated clearly. The detailed procedures of the data collection and data analysis should be stated as well.
Research design, Explain theories or method that is used in conducting the research. This method is written in descriptive and should provide a statement regarding the methodology of the research.
Participants/samples/subjects, Explain who are the participants/ samples/subjects in research.
Research instruments, State clearly the instruments used in collecting the data.
Data collection procedure, State clearly how to collect the data.
Data analysis, Explain clearly how to analyze the data.
Findings and Discussion
Findings/Results might be written in the form of subchapter(s) or no-subchapter(s). Summarize the collected data and the analysis performed on those data. The findings should be written in a concise and clear explanation without expressing any personal opinion. Numbers, tables, and figures (e.g., charts and graphs) can be added to provide a detailed explanation. Use Findings for a qualitative study, and Results for a quantitative study.
Discussion explains the meaning of the research findings. Emphasize any theoretical or practical consequences of the findings, relate the work to the findings of other studies, and discuss reasons for similarities and differences between your and others' findings. Take into account how the results of other researchers may be combined with yours to derive a new or even better authentic understanding of the problem.
Conclusion and Suggestion
The conclusion contains a description that should answer the objectives of the research. Provide a clear and concise conclusion. Do not repeat the Abstract or simply describe the results of the research. Give a clear explanation regarding the possible application and/or suggestions related to the research findings. You may provide the limitation of your research and give further study for other researchers. Use paragraphs without numbers or bullets in Conclusion and Suggestion sections.
Used a minimum of 20 references. References must be at least 80% of journal articles. The reference list must be complete and in accordance with the references presented in the body of the article. The references section is listed at the end of the paper and is written alphabetically in APA 7th edition referencing style. Reference must be written by using Mendeley, Zotero, or EndNote.
Appendix (if any)
The appendix contains supplementary materials that are not essential but may be helpful in providing a more comprehensive understanding of the research problems. It can also be any information too cumbersome to be included in the body of the paper. Examples of items included in the Appendix are mathematical proofs, lists of words, the questionnaires used in the research, detailed descriptions of an apparatus used in the research, or raw data.
B. Guidelines for Non Research-based Articles
The title should be accurate, unambiguous, specific, and complete.
Author(s) Names, affiliations, and E-mail addresses
The name(s) of author(s) of the article are listed without academic degrees followed by the authors' affiliations.
The abstract is written in English, consists of 150-250 words, and provides a summary of the research objectives, method, results/findings, and conclusion. Keywords consist of 3 to 6 words that are written alphabetically.
The introduction provides an adequate background including problems and the significance of the study to show the gap of the research. Begin the Introduction by clearly identifying the subject area of interest. Unlike the introductory section in a research article, the introduction in a non-research article contains a description that leads the readers to the main topic to be discussed. Therefore, this section contains things that can attract the readers so that they are led to explore the next section. End the section with a brief formula (1-2 sentences) about the main points that will be discussed.
This section consists of analyses, arguments, comparisons, decisions, and attitudes of the author about the problems being discussed. Sub-sections are determined as needed. The hallmark of this section is the argumentative, analytic, comparative, and critical view according to the systematic and coherent arrangement (this section does not need to be long).
The conclusion contains a description that should answer the objectives of the research. Provide a clear and concise conclusion. Do not repeat the Abstract or simply describe the results of the research. Give a clear explanation regarding the possible application and/or suggestions related to the research findings. You may provide the limitation of your research, and further study for other researchers. Use paragraphs without numbers or bullets in Conclusion and Suggestion sections.
Used minimum of 20 references. References must be at least 80% of journal articles. The reference list must be complete and in accordance with the references presented in the body of the article.
