The structure of the abstract should mirror the structure of the whole paper. For example, if your paper has four sections (introduction, method, results and discussion, and conclusion), there should be one or more sentences assigned to summarize each section. In details, abstract should include: 1) the overall purpose of the study and the research problem(s) you investigated; 2) the basic design of the study; 3) major findings or trends found as a result of your analysis; and, 4) a brief summary of your interpretations and conclusions. The abstract should not exceed 250 words, and written as a single paragraph, size 10.5 and align justified).

  • Keyword
    Keyword no more than 5, separated semicolon (;), size 10.5pt

  • Introduction
    The introduction contains (in sequence) a general background, a state of the art review, a statement of scientific novelty, and the problems. It should explain the importance of the research and of the results being reported, as well as any relevance they have to other prior studies. At the end of the introduction should be written the purpose of the article. For scientific purposes, there is no bibliographical that must be written here. It is manifested in the form of a state of the art to show the scientific novelty of the study

  • Research Methods
    The research methods can be written as independent sub-chapters if the article becomes the research result. This section should be written as concisely as possible but should contain all elements necessary to allow interpretation and replication of the results. This section is expected to expose sources that have been used. In the meantime, the method also can be included in the introduction section if the article written using literature studies or reflective works.

  • Results and Discussion
    In this section, the results of the analysis are presented, but not discuss their significance. How the results are presented will depend upon whether the research study was quantitative or qualitative in nature. This section should focus only on results that are directly related to the research or the problem. Graphs and tables should only be used when there is too much data to efficiently include it within the text.
    This section also should be a discussion of the results and the implications on the field, as well as other fields. The hypothesis should be answered and validated by the interpretation of the results. This section should also discuss how the results relate to previous research mentioned in the literature review, any cautions about the findings and potential for future research. The results and discussion section are often combined into one section because readers can seldom make sense of results alone without accompanying interpretation.

  • Conclusion
    The conclusion illustrates the problem that has been formulated. The conclusion is not repetitive, but rather on the summary of the findings of the problems. Sometimes, the author also points out any limitations, and offer suggestions for future research.

  • Acknowledgments
    All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references. This section is the place to acknowledge people (dedications), places, and financing (you may state grants and sponsors here).

  • References
    All references referred to in the article text must be registered in the References section and must be written in APA 6th Edition format. The reference should contain sources, both primary and secondary sources. For the referral purposes, the editor recommended to the author for using a reference management application program such as Mendeley, EndNote or Zotero, or others.
