Where more than one author has contributed to the article, please provide detailed information for the corresponding author(s). The detailed information about the author will be placed on the ABOUT THE AUTHOR (short CV) page.

Abstract (Abstrak)
The abstract should stand alone, meaning that no citations are in the abstract. The abstract should concisely inform the reader of the manuscript’s purpose, its methods, its findings, and its value. The abstract should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution. The manuscript’s title, but neither the author’s name nor other identification designations, should appear on the abstract page. An abstract between 150-200 words, should be presented in English and Bahasa Indonesia on a separate page immediately preceding the text of the manuscript.

Keyword
Keywords are an important part of writing an abstract. Authors should select between 3-5 keywords that are specific and reflect what is essential about the article. Keywords and the article’s classification should be provided after the abstract in English and Bahasa Indonesia.

Main Article
Manuscripts submitted to this journal should have the following main headings:

Introduction (Pendahuluan)
What is the purpose of the study? Why are you conducting the study? The main section of the article should start with an introductory section which provides more details about the paper’s purpose, motivation, research methods, research gap, and findings. The introduction should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution.

Literature Review (Tinjauan Teoritis)
In this section, the author will discuss the purpose of a literature review. Contains a description of the theories and previous research that became the basis for developing hypotheses (if any) and research models.

Methods (Metode Penelitian)
This section typically has the following sub-sections: sampling (a description of the target population, the research context, and units of analysis; sampling; and respondents’ profiles); data collection; and measures (alternatively: measurement).

Analysis and Discussion (Analisis dan Pembahasan)
The author needs to report the results in sufficient detail so that the reader can see which statistical analysis was conducted and why, and later to justify their conclusions.

Reporting results: The author may assume that the reader has a working knowledge of basic statistics (i.e., typically the contents covered in a 1st statistics course).

Discussion
Different authors take different approaches when writing the discussion section. According to Feldman (2004:5), Perry et al. (2003: 658), and Summers (2001: 411412), the discussion section should: 1) Restate the study’s main purpose; 2) reaffirm the importance of the study by restating its main contributions; 3) summarize the results in relation to each research objectives or hypothesis, without introducing new material; 4) relate the findings back to the literature and to the results reported by other researchers; 5) provide possible explanations for any unexpected or non-significant findings; 6) discuss the managerial implications of the study; 7) highlight the main limitations of the study that could influence its internal and external validity; 8) and discuss insightful (i.e., non-obvious) directions or opportunities for future research related to the topic.

Conclusion (Simpulan)
In this section, the author presents brief conclusions from the results of research with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers. A conclusion may cover the main points of the paper, but do not replicate the abstract in the conclusion. Not only do authors write down the major flaws and limitations of their study, which can reduce the validity of the writing, thus raising questions from the readers (whether, or in what way), the limits in his studies may have affected the results and conclusions. Limitations require critical judgment and interpretation of the impact of their research. The author should provide the answer to the question: Is this a problem caused by an error, or in the method selected, or the validity, or otherwise?

References
In writing the article, the author(s) are required to use reference management tools (example: Mendeley, EndNote, or Zotero) in writing the citation and list of references. Authors may use some flexible terms for the subheading following the main heading. Authors are encouraged to use the manuscript template that can be found at the side bar of the website (Journal Template). References should be written using APA Style.
