  9. The Introduction should consist of the background of the study, research contexts, research question(s) or research objective(s), the highlight of the novelty and the significance contribution with larger implication of the research.
  10. The Literature Review states the empirical or theoretical problem which is the basis of the research, the theory underlying the research, relevant previous research results, the similarity of the research with relevant previous research, the difference of the research from relevant previous research, the gaps that make this research important to carry out, and the research position on the development of science.
  11. Relevant previous research included in the Literature Review section, should be from the journals published in the last 7 years.
  12. The Research Method consists of description concerning the research design, data sources, research subjects (participants/informans), data collection, data collection instruments, and data analysis.
  13. In the Findings and Discussion, the authors describe the results of the data analysis to answer the research question(s) and their meanings seen from current theories and references of the area addressed.

Therefore, this section should deep enough to discuss the essential findings and brings new-insight.
  14. In Conclusions (and Suggestions), the authors conclude the article critically and logically based on the research findings by making generalization of the findings, and should also adequately explain the significant contributions of the research. In suggestion (if any), the authors describe their recommendation for further studies regarding their research implication.
  15. The 6th edition of APA style should be used in referencing, and writing format of quotations, therefore, authors should use a reference manager software (EndNote, or Mendeley, or Zotero).
