Title PageTitle should be concise and informative. Please avoid abbreviation and formulae if possible.
- Author names and affiliations: Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. Present the authors' affiliation below the names, including the country name.

ABSTRACTAbstract title is 12pt, bold. The body is 11 pt, Italic. The abstract for a full paper should be 100-150 words. It must consist of a belief background to why it was needed, what the purpose was, what was done (method), and the main findings. No formula needed and avoid quotes and extensive references.
Keyword: Should represent most important keyword. Do not put any too widely general term and abbreviation (up to 5 keywords).
INTRODUCTIONThe title is 12pt, bold. Provide a brief background to the topic, with some statistics or data to provide a background to the environment or situation. This topic can be from the results of reviewing previous research findings published in the latest international journals. If you have genuine problem, introduce the problem here. If you want to explore the gap of previous research, do it here. Explain how the gaps in previous research findings can be filled which results in new findings as a scientific contribution. Explain why the study is needed from a research and/or practice perspective.
Authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper.
For example: “....... A few researchers focused on ....... There have been limited studies concerned on ........ Therefore, this research intends to ................. The objectives of this research are .........”.
In other words, here is the steps:
- Introducce the general background in brief.
- Introduce the results of reviewing previous research findings published in the latest international journals.
- Expose the findings GAPs. What the other previous researches lack of.
- Explain how the gaps in previous research findings can be filled which results in new findings as a scientific contribution
- State the reseach objective(s)
** Please remember to put novelties of the paper and the purpose of the research.
** Please DO NOT PUT LITERATURE REVIEW of different sub chapter. Authors can include the literature or previous research on Introduction. This is very important. After you provide brief introduction and the problem you want to study, you need to put previous researches (literature review) that had been done related to your research problem and how they are different from your research. This will lead to the novelties of your paper.
METHODOLOGYExplain what research methods were used and why. Explain how they were applied. When, where, and how was the study done? What materials were used or who was included in the study groups (patients, etc.)
Remember this principle:
Follow my recipe and you will get the same result.
The author simply describes what he does in his research without having to mention the label terms that can confuse the reader.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONRESULT
Results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Present raw data here without comment, using tables and figures if this makes the data clearer. What answer was found to the research question; what did the study find? Was the tested hypothesis true?
The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Comment on the data, referring to the literature (compare it to previous research) and pointing out similarities and differences, explaining these if possible. Return to the aim and research question and show how the aims have been met, and the research question answered.
In discussion, it is the most important section of your article. Here you get the chance to sell your data. What might the answer imply and why does it matter? How does it fit in with what other researchers have found? What are the perspectives for future research? Please compare to what other researchers have found.Conclude with some directions for future research or practice, and any limitations of the study.
CONCLUSIONThis should answer all the research purposes. Authors should write conclusion on one paragraph. Conclude with some directions for future research or practice, and any limitations of the study. DO NOT REPEAT what you have stated in result and discussion.
- Contains answers to research questions, describing the essence of the results of the discussion
- In essay form, not in numerical form
- Contains a statement of the relationship between phenomena / variables / factors that lead to theoretical development or theory modification.
- A good conclusion is one that the researcher keeps in mind without having to read the formula again.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT(This is optional) Recognize those who helped in the research, especially funding supporter of your research.
REFERENCESPLEASE USE REFERENCE MANAGER APPLICATIONS LIKE ENDNOTE, MENDELEY, ZOTERO, ETC. Mendeley is preferable.
References should be 80% of primary literature (journal, proceedings, research report, patent, history documentation, research based book, etc). Cite the main scientific publications on which your work is based. Cite only items that you have read. Do not inflate the manuscript with too many references. Check each reference against the original source (authors name, volume, issue, year, DOI Number). Use other published articles in the same journal as models.
