The title should summarize the main idea or ideas of your manuscript; the title is within 14 words maximum.

Author(s) Detail:

Full Name (without degree), affiliation, and email.


Abstracts should clearly indicate the background of the problems, objectives, theories and methods, findings or novelty of ideas, and main conclusions.


Avoid a thorough literature review or a description of the findings and simply express the goals of your work while providing an acceptable background. Indicate the gap in the literature that your research fills in explicit detail. Be careful to accurately and in your own words convey the author's ideas when paraphrasing a source that is not your own. You still need to cite an author's work even if you paraphrase their work. It is required to include the page number in addition to the author's name and the year of publication when directly quoting an author's work. Citation marks should be used from the beginning to the finish of the quotation.


This section contains the method/approach, population/sample or participant of study, instrument and data analysis.

Findings and Discussions

Present your findings. Use graphs and tables as applicable, but also provide a prose summary of your key findings. The most important findings should be highlighted; do not restate what is already stated in the findings. The goal of the discussion is to explain any new knowledge or insights that occurred as a result of your investigation of the topic, as well as to interpret and describe the relevance of your results in light of what is previously known about the research subject being explored. It is frequently useful to combine the Findings and Discussion sections.


Intended not only to repeat findings. The conclusion contains substantializing of meaning. It can present a statement of what is being expected as proposed in the “Introduction” and what has happened as reported in the “Findings and Discussion” so that there is compatibility.  An addition can be made concerning the prospects of enriching the research findings and developing the potential for future research.


Follow the APA 7 style. Please note that all names/references mentioned in the text/article should be listed in the References section. Names that are not mentioned in the text/article, should be removed from the References section. For the complete guide of APA 7th Edition please refer to the following website
