With the author-date system, use the following format recommended by Harvard-Anglia.


The manuscripts should be typed in A4 (210mm x 297mm), with 10-point Times New Roman font and must be 1.5 line-spaced, except for indented quotations. The manuscript must be saved as a word file. All the pages, including tables, appendices, and references, should be serially numbered. Spell out numbers from one to ten, except when used in tables and lists, and when used with mathematical, statistical, scientific or technical units and quantities, such as distances, weights and measures. For example three days; 3 kilometers; 30 years. All other numbers are expressed numerically. Authors are encouraged to use the ADJ template. A sample template is included at the end of this document.


The manuscript must be written in good Bahasa Indonesia or academic English. Spelling follows Webster’s International Dictionary. To ensure an anonymous review, the authors should not identify themselves directly or indirectly in their papers. A single author should not use the word “we”. Authors for whom English is not their native language are encouraged to have their papers checked before submission for grammar and clarity.

Article Length

The article should be between 4000 and 7000 words. The allowable length of the manuscript is at the editor’s discretion; however, manuscripts with a length of less than or exceeding the specified word count may be returned to the author(s) for revision before the manuscript is considered by the editors. The word count excludes tables, figures, and references.



Title Page

Article Title: The title of the article should be specific and effective, and approximately no more 20 words. Write an article title using simple and straightforward language that can offer readers a glimpse of the content with their first glance.

Author’s name and Affiliations: The full name of each author without any academic title, the affiliation of each author at the time the research was completed and the address for each author including the full postal address, telephone, and email addresses. Where more than one author has contributed to the article, please provide detailed information for the corresponding author(s). The detailed information about the author will be placed on the ABOUT THE AUTHORS page.

Abstract: The abstract should stand alone, meaning that no citations are in the abstract. The abstract should concisely inform the reader of the manuscript’s purpose, its methods, its findings, and its value. The abstract should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution. The manuscript’s title, but neither the author’s name nor other identification designations, should appear on the abstract page. An abstract, of no more than 200 words, should be presented both in English and Indonesian on a separate page immediately preceding the text of the manuscript. (An Indonesian abstract will be provided for the non-Indonesian authors once the manuscript is accepted for publication.

Keyword: Keywords are an important part of writing an abstract. Authors should select a maximum of five keywords that are specific and reflect what is essential about the article. Keywords and the article’s classification should be provided after the abstract.


Main Article

Manuscripts submitted to this journal should have the following main headings:

Introduction: What is the purpose of the study? Why are you conducting the study? The main section of the article should start with an introductory section which provides more details about the paper’s purpose, motivation, research methods and findings. The introduction should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution.

Methods: This section typically has the following sub-sections: sampling (a description of the target population, the research context, and units of analysis; sampling; and respondents’ profiles); data collection; and measures (alternatively: measurement).

Results and Discussion: The author needs to report the results in sufficient detail so that the reader can see which statistical analysis was conducted and why, and later to justify their conclusions. Reporting results: The author may assume that the reader has a working knowledge of basic statistics (i.e., typically the contents covered in a 1ststatistics course). Different authors take different approaches when writing the discussion section. According to Feldman (2004:5), Perry et al. (2003: 658), and Summers (2001: 411412), the discussion section should: 1) Restate the study’s main purpose; 2) reaffirm the importance of the study by restating its main contributions; 3) summarize the results in relation to each research objectives or hypothesis, without introducing new material; 4) relate the findings back to the literature and to the results reported by other researchers; 5) provide possible explanations for any unexpected or non-significant findings; 6) discuss the managerial implications of the study; 7) highlight the main limitations of the study that could influence its internal and external validity; 8) and discuss insightful (i.e., non-obvious) directions or opportunities for future research related to the topic.

Conclusion: In this section, the author presents brief conclusions from the results of research with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers. A conclusion may cover the main points of the paper, but do not replicate the abstract in the conclusion.

Acknowledgment (optional): This section is provided for the author(s) to express his gratitude either for the research funders or the other parties who contribute to research realization 

Bibliography: Each manuscript must include a reference list containing only the quoted work and using the MendeleyEndNote, or Zotero tool. Each entry should contain all the data needed for unambiguous identification. With the author-date system, use the following format recommended by Harvard-Anglia. References must be valid, published within the previous ten years and contain at least 80% primary references (journals, thesis, dissertations and patent documents). Authors are encouraged to use the manuscript template that can be found at the bottom of this guideline (Journal Template).
