  • Bibliography is a list of literature as referent to citations that appear earlier in the body part of the article. Primary references comprise of at least 5 (five) recently published journal articles within last 2 years. 
  • Article is written systematically covering: introduction; methodology; discussion; conclusion; and bibliography.
  • Introduction is to introduce the reader to the research topic, the research context, the problem and the purpose of research, the studies on related theories, the review of previous research, etc. Thus the introduction should not be described at length especially with contents unfocused or irrelevant to the research topic. Introduction is expected to be presented maximally of one third of the total body of articles.
  • Methodology is the means used by researchers in collecting research data to address issues that pose as the focus of research. Therefore, the methodology must be accountable to explain in detail the matters related to the study design, context, interventional procedures, and data analysis. Methodologies potential to be promoted in this journal includes articles on qualitative, quantitative, and action research based.
  • In the Results and Discussion part, the research findings in the form of research data are further discussed or critically interpreted with particularly relevant theoretical approach. Data can also be supported with the presentation of tables, images, etc. Captions for table is written above it with sequenced numbering so that it can be easily referred to, though not put under the pointing sentence/ paragraph. Line (border) to the table is made minimalist by eliminating the vertical lines and leaving horizontal lines deemed necessary. Captions for images are placed below the picture, also with providing sequenced numbering. One page only accomodates a table or an image with a maximum of two-thirds the size of the page (size adjusted as efficiently as possible).
  • Conclusion is not a repetition of the findings and the discussions that have been presented in the previous sections, but instead lays out the implications of the findings, the weaknesses of the study, the contributions of the current research, and the recommendations for future research.
