Systematics of Writing

1. Title, full name of author, origin of institution/department, email address, abstract, and keyword (3 to 5 words or phrases)

2. INTRODUCTION This section consists of background/subject matter and research objectives. The background is a rationale of research supported by the theoretical foundations and the results of recent research (state of the art), especially from domestic and foreign journals as the primary source of reference. The purpose of the study explains the benefits to be gained from the research undertaken.

3. MATERIAL and METHOD Explain the research implementation by researchers, ranging from the dimension of approach, how to collect data, and how to analyze the data. Material and Method includes two important things, materials or tools with complete specifications and work procedures that describe the variables used, how to obtain data systematically collected and analyzed.

4. RESULT and DISCUSSION The results presented various characteristics of subject/sample data and the main findings of the study. The author can provide interpretation/analysis before the discussion. The discussion contains a discussion that links and compares the results of research with the theory/concept findings from other studies used as the primary reference. The discussion should be meaningful and not just narrate results (tables and figures). It should suggest the implications of the research results and be focused on answering the subject matter.

5. CONCLUSION Contains answers from research objectives and is not a summary of research results. Suggestions are optional.


7. REFERENCES The quality and quantity of referenced libraries is an indicator of the quality of the article. Use the latest libraries (last 5 years) with 80% ratio of primary libraries or journals. The number of referenced libraries is at least 10. Style of reference writing that is cited follows APA style.
