As part of the document metadata, authors must categorize their work. They should choose from the list of categories below the one that best fits their manuscript.

  • Research Article : The creation or testing of a model or framework, action research, data testing, market research or surveys, and empirical, scientific, or laboratory research are all included in research articles.
  • Review articles: give a thorough overview of the research on a certain subject and offer insight into the current condition and future directions of the area. Review articles are frequently read widely and frequently quoted (for instance, by scholars looking for a thorough introduction to a discipline). It frequently cites about 100 primary sources.
  • Technical papers analyze and describe items, procedures, or services that are technically based.
  • A conceptual article will develop hypotheses rather than rely on research. The articles will likely be discursive and feature philosophical debates as well as comparisons of other people's ideas and works.
  • Case studies detail real-world organizational interventions or experiences. They might be biased and won't typically report on studies. This would also include a description of a court case or a fictitious case study used as a teaching tool.


Manuscript language is English and Indonesian. Make sure to proofread the manuscript writing before submission.

The activity objectives and problem-solving plans are presented in this section. Relevant literature review and hypothesis development are included in this section. [Times New Roman, 11, normal] page percentage between 10-15% of total words, spaced 1.


Methods Section

The research method used must be written in a scientific way, namely rational, empirical and systematic. The research method describes the approach, activity design, scope or object, main materials and tools, place, data collection techniques, operational definitions of research variables, and analysis techniques. [Times New Roman, 11, normal], space 1.


Results and Discussion Section

  • This section is a mixed results-discussion.
  • Emphasize more on presenting and discussing the main result.
  • Avoid extensive presentation of the following:

    • Computation results obtained from step-by-step procedures in many tables and/or figures. Instead, summarize these results in a single concise and meaningful table/figure and draw the conclusion from it.
    • If either raw (input) data or those detailed results are to be presented, put it in the Appendix section. A maximum of four-page appendix is allowed.
  • A discussion should interpret the significance of the main results/findings, and not just repeat mentioning the result already shown in tables and/or figures.
  • For research on hypothesis testing, explain how the results relate to the hypothesis and provide a succinct explanation of the implications of the findings, particularly in relation to previous related studies.
  • Provide the name and version of any softwares used and make clear whether computer code used is available.

Conclusions can be in the form of specific conclusions and general conclusions. is the result of data analysis or the results of hypothesis testing about the phenomenon that must be concluded.

The thing to note is the consistency triangle (problem-objective-conclusion must be consistent). Use of footnotes is not permitted. Symbols / symbols are written clearly and consistently. Foreign terms are written in italics. Abbreviations must be written in full at the first time they are mentioned, after that they can be written in short words [Times New Roman, 11, normal], spaced 1.
