Author Guidelines


Manuscript Preparation, Writing and Revision Guidelines

General requirements:

  1. The manuscript should meet the aims and scope of the Jurnal Manajemen Teori dan Terapan (JMTT).
  2. The manuscript which sent to the JMTT 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. The submission should be accompanied by filling in author's declaration form (click here).
  3. The manuscript is written in Bahasa Indonesia or English and to assure 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 following guidelines and should be formatted in accordance with the JMTT template for submission (EN) (ID). The paper which does not comply with this requirement may be returned for revision (format/template) before entering the review process.
  5. The manuscript only could be sent via the open journal system (OJS) mechanism (not by email) in web address:
  6. The Editor of JMTT reserves the right to edit the grammar and spelling of the text contained without reducing or changing the intent of writing.


JMTT’s manuscript preparation and style guidelines follow, with a slight modification, documentation Harvard-Anglia 2008. Each manuscript must include a reference list containing only the quoted work and using the Mendeley 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.


The manuscripts should be typed in A4 (210mm x 297mm), with 10-point Century Gothic font and must be 1.15 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 JMTT 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 160 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.

JEL Classification Numbers: Authors should add a 1 - 3 JEL Classification Number. An information guide for the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) can be found at


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.

Literature Review: In this section, the author will discuss the purpose of a literature review.

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: 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).

Discussion: 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.

Limitation: Not only do authors write down the major flaws and limitations of their study, which can reduce the validity of the writing, thus raising questions from the readers (whether, or in what way), the limits in his studies may have affected the results and conclusions. Limitations require critical judgment and interpretation of the impact of their research. The author should provide the answer to the question: Is this a problem caused by an error, or in the method selected, or the validity, or otherwise?

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 

References: In writing the article, the author(s) are required to use reference management tools (example: MendeleyEndNote, or Zotero) in writing the citation and list of references. Authors may use some flexible terms for the subheading following the main heading. References must be valid, published within the previous ten years and contain at least 80% primary references. 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. Hill (2001) suggests that the objective of depreciation is ....
  2. Inflation targeting would be sufficient (see McCain, 1982).
  3. The definition of contagion is ... (Wagner, 1976; Rhonda 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 are 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 centered below the figure, while Table numbers and titles appear centered 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 centered (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 color in electronic version. In printable version, however, the color will be black and white.


Each manuscript must include a reference list containing only the quoted work and using theMendeley, EndNote, 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).
