Preparing Submissions


Each author in this scientific journal must include a clear title. The title can direct the reader to the heart of the article without having to read the entire article.


Abstract is not the same as summary. The abstract section in a scientific paper serves to briefly analyze the content of the work. Abstract is meant to clarify. The abstract should cover approximately 200 words that summarizes the objectives, problem formulation, methods, findings, and conclusions. In the section after the Abstract the keywords of the scientific work in question are listed.


The introduction contains a statement about the phenomenon under study, which informs the reader to understand the specific purpose within the larger theoretical framework. This section can also contain information about the background of the problem, overcome theoretical problems such as the gap between expectations and reality, then formulated into a problem statement.


In writing articles, if using theory, there must be important theories that support and are directly related to the topic of the article on the results of the research report. Each theory referred to is accompanied by the name of the author of the journal (one word only, last name if more than one word), and the year of publication. Please note, what is referred to from journals, theses, and dissertations is the result of the research, not the theoretical basis or research method.


This section describes how the author, tools, location, and time in conducting his research.


Consists of data presentation and analysis. Authors need to present concise data with a review using narrative text, tables, or images. From the results presented, not all interpretations of the data or conclusions from the data in this section. Data collected in the form of tables, images must be in the form of complete narrative text and presented in a form that is easy to understand. In the analysis, the writer interprets the data with the observed pattern. Every relationship between variables or factors is important and every correlation between variables or factors can be seen clearly. Authors should include different explanations of different or similar hypotheses or results for each related investigation carried out by the researcher.


This section can only contain conclusions, but if there are suggestions it is better to include both.

The conclusion only states that the researcher thinks about each data presented in relation to the statements stated in the introduction. By referring to the introduction and conclusion, the reader should have a good overview of the research, even if only the specific details.


In the bibliography, the author must include scientific references referred to in writing the article. The arrangement is as follows: Name, comma, year number in brackets, comma, title italicized, comma, publishing institution, comma, place/city name (if any), ending period.

Accepted Articles

This journal offers an Accepted Articles service for all manuscripts. This service ensures that manuscripts received in the press are published online immediately upon receipt, prior to copy editing or typesetting. Accepted articles are published online a few days after final receipt, appear only in PDF format, and are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows them to be cited and tracked. After the publication of the final version of the article (note article), the DOI remains valid and can still be used to cite and access the article.


Once the paper is typed, the author will receive an email notification with a URL to download a proof of the PDF setup page, as well as the associated form and complete instructions on how to repair and restore the file.

Please note that the author is responsible for all statements made in his work, including changes made during the editorial process, the author must carefully examine the evidence.

Initial view

This journal offers fast publication through the MAP Journal Early View service. Note there may be a delay after corrections are received before articles appear online, as Editors also need to review evidence. Once an article is published in Early View, no further changes to the article are possible. Initial View articles are fully stable and contain the online publication date and DOI for citations.
