Abstract: The abstract should reflect the whole content of the article and help the readers to find out its relevance to their interest and to decide whether they need to read the entire article. The abstract consists of the research background, focus, objectives, steps, and results and conclusions. The abstract is written in English languages in one paragraph, in 1 line spacing, and between 150 to a maximum of 200 words, font 11 pt.

Keyword: Keywords are written right below the abstract, separated by a comma (,)         



              The introduction presents the research background, gaps between the ideal and actual conditions, support from current theories and studies relevant to the problem, and novelty in the form of innovation. This section is written in a maximum of 20% (including the title and abstract) of the body of the article.



This section should be concisely but clearly and adequately written. It describes the research method operationally, including the procedure or steps, tools, materials, and instruments. If necessary, attach appendices for the instrument specification and part of the materials. Specific points, if any, can be described. This section is written in a maximum of 10% of the body of the article.



To facilitate reading and understanding, the results are described first, followed by discussion. The subheadings of results and discussion are separated. This section should be the most, with a minimum of 60% of the body of the article.



              Results can be presented in tables of numbers, graphs, verbal descriptions, or a combination of the three. The tables, graphs, or pictures should not be too long, big, or many. The author should use a variety of presentations through tables, graphs, and verbal descriptions. The presented tables and graphs must be referred to in the text. The way to present a table is shown in Table 1. The table does not use vertical lines and horizontal lines are used only the upper and bottom parts. The font size in a table or picture can be smaller than that in the text.

Sub-section 1 (bold and italics)



Sub-section 2 (bold and italics)



References in the body of the article use parentheses, i.e. (). A reference by one author is written (Wicaksono, 2021) and a reference by two authors (Fahrurrozi & Wicaksono, 2022). For a reference by three to five authors, in the first citation all the names are included, e.g. (Rafli, Lustyantie, & Wicaksono, 2018), and in the subsequent citation only the first author’s name is written, followed by et al., e.g. (Wicaksono et al., 2018).  An author’s name in a reference can be written outside parentheses, e.g. Wayan Satria Jaya (2019), depending on the writing style. If the idea referred to is a direct quotation or fact on a particular page, the page should be included, e.g. (Nurgiyantoro & Efendi, 2017, p.144) or (Nurgiyantoro & Efendi, 2017, pp.144-146) for the idea on several pages.

For referencing, authors are suggested that they should not use direct quotations or too many direct quotations. A direct quotation of less than 40 words is included in (not separated from) a paragraph with quotation marks (“...”).  A direct quotation of 40 or more words is written in a block (separated from a paragraph), indented by half an inch from the margin, and without quotation marks followed by the author’s name, year, and page in parentheses (author’s name, year: page).

If a statement is the essence from several references, all the names of the authors of the sources are alphabetically written and a semicolon (;) is used to separate one from another, e.g. (Nurgiyantoro & Efendi, 2017; Triyono, 2017; Widyastuti, 2018; Zamzani et al., 2017). For a translated reference, the name referred to is the name of the author of the original version and the years of the translated and original versions are included (See the example in References).

They can be statements regarding expectations as stated in the introduction, finally leading to results and discussion, so that there is compatibility. In addition, the prospect of the development of the research findings and the research application in the future (based on the results and discussion) can be included.



In this section the author expresses his or her thanks to sponsors, funding agencies, resource persons, and other parties playing important roles in the study.



References are alphabetically written. All the resources referred to in the article must be listed in the references and vice versa.
