Abstract; Written briefly in English and Indonesian in one paragraph of 100-200 words, containing background, research objectives, methodology, results, research conclusions.

Keywords; Written in Indonesian 3-5 words or groups of words, written in alphabetical order and separated by [;]

Introduction: The introduction must include the background of the problem which contains issues that are developing or starting from the theory that is the reference for the research variable or central research phenomenon. Next, analyze relevant previous studies to give rise to various hypotheses or initial assumptions. Explanation of ideas and concepts regarding the position of researchers or research as an indicator of novelty based on issues/theories and the results of previous studies. At the end of the introduction, the purpose of the research must be briefly explained

Theory, Literature Review, And Hypothesis Development: Presents the study of the main theory and/or supporting theories used in the research. If research is explanatory [quantitative] it must explain the hypothesis.

Methodology: The suitability of the research problem will determine the research approach and design that will be used. In this section, it must be explained in detail and operationally with clear references to the research approach (paradigm), relevant research design, research methods including data collection techniques and data analysis procedures. Also explain if you use computer-based data analysis or applications with clear references. If you use a development research approach, make sure to explain the development model that is used as a reference with scientific arguments

Analysis and Results: Analysis is the process of analyzing data into data findings or research results that are presented clearly and informatively supported in visuals in the form of tables or images. Finding data presented in the form of tables, graphs or images are explained in descriptive form. Results section without any references. The table is created in a format without vertical lines (as in the example). Every table and figure must be referenced in the text. The words "Figure" and "Table" in the figure and table captions are written using Calisto MT: 11 pt, left aligned, bold. Bar charts are presented in shaded form. Tables and figures are placed within the text in separate file sections. The table is given a table description at the top of the table (aligned left). The image is captioned at the bottom of the image. Images are presented openly without frame lines in JPEG format with 300 dpi quality. If the research results are in descriptive form, explain them briefly in narrative form according to the research data.

Discussion: The discussion is adjusted to the research approach, whether the discussion is exploratory or understanding or explanatory and/or in development research. Discussion is the answer to the problem formulation posed in the research. The discussion explains what the results obtained mean, especially regarding the subjects encountered. The discussion is made by indicating whether the results are relevant to expectations or not and supported by citations of several previous research results that are relevant to the research topic. The discussion is presented clearly and informatively and uses clear references (there are no tables or figures in the text).

Conclusion: The conclusion section contains a theoretical statement whether the aim is to test a theory or discover a new theory or develop a concept/theory/product. This statement needs a supporting explanation in several sentences. The conclusion contains a brief description in the form of an answer to the problem posed.

Theoretical Implications: Theoretical implications are the relevance of conclusions to previous research and the contribution of research results to the body of knowledge in certain scientific disciplines

Research limitations and recommendations: The researcher or writer must explain the limitations of the writing [research results] and provide recommendations for further research.

References: Reference writing follows APA rules and reference management is recommended using the Mendeley or Zotero application with a bodynote model. Minimum References 15; 70% of journal articles > last 10 years and 30% book references and others.
