  2. Types of articles suitable for publication include the following: research reports and conceptual ideas.
  3. Articles are written preferably in Indonesian and English using academic language along with standard academic writing structure and composition. Manuscripts are typed in Microsoft Word (*.doc/*.docx/*.rtf formats are acceptable, meanwhile *.pdf format is not acceptable), A4 paper size with default narrow margin, 11 pt of Calibri font, 1 pt of line spacing, and between 3000-7000 words in length including references, pictures, and tables.
  4. Articles should be in the form of an essay which includes:

The abstract and keywords must be written in English between 120-150 words in length.

The introduction outlines the background of the problem that leads to the focus of the issue presented by the author, and must place the research in the context of academic debate (with previous research), elaborating on theories, concepts, paradigms, perspectives, or trends in the field. Then, the author must present the research question/focus of the problem in the article. Emphasize the gap between similar research and present the state-of-the-art so that the article has novelty.

The author must describe the methods used in detail and logically, along with their stages, in an effort to be involved in scientific debate, or in an effort to answer the questions posed. Primary and secondary data used along with their collection or processing/analysis techniques must be described here (not containing a collection of definitions).

Result and Discussion
In this section, the author discusses the research results further, either as a theoretical and/or methodological debate that is reflective, or field findings explained with clear, concise, scientific, and factual language. If the discussion consists of several sub-themes or parts, the author is advised to divide the discussion according to these sub-themes or parts by providing subheadings (each discussing one issue to be answered) in italics and bold without numbering. Results and discussion can be presented with a title that corresponds to the problem topic. The presentation of research results is accompanied by tables, graphs, photos, tables, or other forms. Subtitles that describe the results of the research are written by following some principles as follows.
1. Written in chronological and systematic that described from beginning to end.
2. The facts arranged systematically on the basis of causal (causal), the facts of events (processes), and facts as a result. A process usually has multi causality or conditions that create a situation for the occurrence of events.

Provide a statement or a concluding note, or implication, or a final comment/suggestion based on the overall substance of the article or a summary of the answer to the problem/research focus to conclude all the arguments presented in the discussion previously (conclusion not a summary).
