Introduction

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background. Explain how you addressed the problem and clearly state the aims of your study. Please describe in narrative format and do not use sub-chapter. (Times New Roman 12)

Methods

The methods section should provide enough detail to allow suitably skilled investigators to fully replicate your study. Specific information and/or protocols for new methods should be included in detail. If materials, methods, and protocols are well established, authors may cite articles where those protocols are described in detail, but the submission should include sufficient information to be understood independent of these references. (Times New Roman 12)

Jurnal Psikiatri Surabaya is a journal that aims to be a leading peer-reviewed platform and an authoritative source of information. We publish original research papers, review articles, and case studies focused on psychiatry, psychology, and mental health with particular emphasis placed on the related diseases as well as related topics that have neither been published elsewhere in any language nor are under review for publication anywhere. The following statement clarifies the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the act of publishing an article in this journal, including the author, the editor, the reviewer, and the publisher. This statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors. 

Results

The results should analyze the research data (also mention the machine/statistical tools, for example: Microsoft Excel or SPSS for Windows), and the techniques/types of statistical calculations used (regression, ANOVA, etc). Tables and figures can be provided in a total of no more than 5 which are conclusive in nature. Narrative results refer to the tables and figures but do not repeat words in tables and figures. 

Discussion

The authors must honestly submit the meaning of the results of the study, especially the issues that are relevant to the basic research questions. Also how the results of the research can solve problems, differences and similarities with previous research and possible development. No need to repeat the things that have been stated in the results, but immediately discuss them in accordance with existing theories. The limitations of the study should be discussed in more depth and included in the last section of the Discussion. 

Conclusions

The conclusion is free from statistics, and it should answer the Aims of the Study. This section also contains the message that Authors want to convey. Conclusions must answer questions written in the Introduction and must be based on research data, not literature reviews.

Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments can be given to those involved with this research. Authors need to include in the Conflict of Interest regarding the consequences that may arise in the future due to the exposure of scientific data with the interests of related institutions.

Introduction

State the objectives of the article, the reasons for the study, formulation of the problem, and statement of purpose. Describe using a narrative format and without sub-chapter. (Times New Roman font 12). 



Review

should be recognized as scholarly by specialists in the field being covered, but should also be written with a view to informing readers who are not specialized in that particular field, and should therefore be presented using simple prose. Please avoid excessive jargon and technical detail. Reviews should capture the broad developments and implications of recent work. The opening paragraph should make clear the general thrust of the review and provide a clear sense of why the review is now particularly appropriate. The concluding paragraph should provide the reader with an idea of how the field may develop or future problems to overcome, but should not summarize the article. To ensure that a review is likely to be accessible to as many readers as possible, it may be useful to ask a colleague from another discipline to read the review before submitting it. (Times New Roman font 12). 

Summary

This part should explain the main summary of the article, highlighting its importance and relevance as well as suggestion or recommendation for further research (citation-free). (Times New Roman font 12)
