Author Guidelines


Manuscript Preparation, Writing, Structure, and Format Guideline


General requirements:

  1. The manuscript should meet the aims and scope of the JHPR
  2. The manuscript sent to the JHPR should be original work, i.e. the same manuscript must have not been published or accepted for publication in any other journals/ books either in full or substantial part and must not be submitted to any other journal for concurrent publication or being considered for publication or even being reviewed. 
  3. The manuscript is written in English or Bahasa Indonesia and to assure a double-blind review process, make sure that the author(s)-identifying information (name, email and affiliation) is not included in the manuscript. The soft file submitted should be in Microsoft Word format.
  4. The manuscript must comply with the guidelines and should be formatted in accordance with the JHPR template for submission. The paper which does not comply with this requirement may be returned for revision (format/template) before entering the review process.
  5. The Editor of JHPR reserves the right to edit the grammar and spelling of the text contained without reducing or changing the intent of the writing.


JHPR’s manuscript preparation and style guidelines follow, with a slight modification, documentation of the American Psychological Association (APA). Each manuscript must include a reference list containing only the quoted work and using the Mendeley or Zotero tools. Each entry should contain all the data needed for unambiguous identification. With the author-date system, use the following format recommended by APA.


The manuscripts should be typed in A4 (210mm x 297mm), with 11-point ARIAL font and must be 1 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 kilometres; 30 years. All other numbers are expressed numerically. Authors are encouraged to use the JHPR template. A sample template is included at the end of this document.


The manuscript must be written in academic English or Bahasa Indonesia. Spelling follows Webster’s International Dictionary or Bahasa Indonesia dengan Ejaan Yang Disempurnakan/EYD in 2000 issued by the Language Center, Ministry of National Education 

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 6000-8000 words in length only (inclusive of references, diagrams and tables). 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 than 20 words. Write an article title using simple and straightforward language that can offer readers a glimpse of the content at 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 of 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). 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 300 words, should be presented both in English and Indonesian on a separate page immediately preceding the text of the manuscript. 

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: The introduction section contains the research background, issues/problem statement, research gap, key research objectives, research significance, and expectations about the contribution and benefits of the research. The introductory section is briefly and clearly written.

Literature Review: The literature review represents the theoretical core of an article. A literature review is a means to an and, namely to provide background to and serve as motivation for the objectives and hypotheses that guide your own research. 

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; measures (alternatively: measurement); and technical analysis.

Results: 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 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).

Discussion: Different authors take different approaches when writing the discussion section. According to Feldman (2004), Perry et al. (2003), and Summers (2001), 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 the research with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers. A conclusion may cover the main points of the paper, but not replicate the abstract in the conclusion.

Acknowledgement (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 

References: The reference style used by JMTT is based on the American Psychological Association (APA) that is already available in MendeleyEndNote, or Zotero. Please remind that we only receive papers that the reference list is managed by Mendeley, EndNote, or Zotero. The number of bibliographies is at least 10 sources and 80% come from primary references (journals, thesis, dissertation, patent document). References must be valid and published within the previous 10 years. Authors are encouraged to use the manuscript template that can be found at the bottom of this guideline (Journal Template).



Citation in the text body should be written using the family name and years of publication. Example:

  1. Prayoga (2001) suggests that the objective of halal product is ....
  2. Polymerase Chain Reaction can be defined (Rahem 1982).
  3. The definition of halal awareness is ... (Satriana 1976; Faridah 2009).
  4. The Authors are recommended to use Mendeley Reference software

Tables and figures

The author must provide high-quality artwork for all illustrations. Poor resolution or definition is not acceptable. Figures and tables reproduced from already published work must be listed with permission from the original publisher (or copyright holder, if not the publisher). Tables and figures should be presented as follows:

  1. Figure numbers and titles appear centred below the figure, while Table numbers and titles appear centred above the table. Each non-proposition word of a title is capitalized.
  2. In tables and figures, only the first word in column and row titles is capitalized.
  3. Within tables and figures, a zero (0) always appears in numbers less than 1 (e.g., 0.15, not .15).
  4. Table values are to be aligned on the decimal except where values differ widely, such values should be centred (this can, for example, apply to the N, R2, and F values in the final rows of a table).
  5. You may have your figures published in colour in an electronic version. In the printable version, however, the colour will be black and white.


Each manuscript must include a reference list containing only the quoted work and using the MendeleyEndNote, or Zotero tools. Each entry should contain all the data needed for unambiguous identification. With the author-date system, use the format recommended by the American Psychological Association (APA)References must be valid, published within the previous 10 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).
