  15. Article components

    Title of the article should be written in a compact, clear, and informative sentence, preferably not more than 15 words. Name of author(s) should be completely written, especially for the first and the last name.  Name and institution address should also be completely written. We choose local names in Bahasa Indonesia for universities in Indonesia. The mention of "graduate program", "undergraduate program", "post-graduate program", "master program", "doctoral program" should be avoided in the name of institution. Manuscript written by a group, author for correspondence along with address is required. The title page (first page) should include the title of the article, full name(s), institution(s) and address(es) of the author(s); the corresponding author mentions the detail email addresses.

    Abstract A concise abstract is required (about 100-250 words maximum). The abstract should be informative and state the background of the research, the study's aim, the principal results and major conclusions briefly. An abstract is often presented separately from the article; thus, it must stand alone (completely self-explanatory). References should not be cited, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential, they must be defined at their first mention.

    Keywords is about five words, covering scientific and local name (if any), research theme, and special methods which used; and sorted from A to Z.

    Abbreviations (if any): All important abbreviations must be defined at their first mention there. Ensure consistency of abbreviations throughout the article.

    The introduction is about words, covering the aims of the research and provide an adequate background derived from the gap analysis of the literature, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. It is the opportunity to justify state of the art for the research.

    Methods should emphasize the procedures and data analysis adopted in the research. Citation of the adopted approach is mandatory.

    Results and Discussion should be written as a series of connecting sentences; however, for a manuscript with long Discussion should be divided into subtitles. Thorough Discussion represents the causal effect mainly explains why and how the results of the research were taken place, and do not only re-express the mentioned results in the form of sentences. Concluding sentence should be given at the end of the Discussion.

    Acknowledgements are expressed in a brief; all sources of institutional, private and corporate financial support for the work must be fully acknowledged, and any potential conflicts of interest are noted.

    Figures and Tables of the maximum of three pages should be presented. Title of a picture is written down below the picture, while the title of a table is written above the table. Coloured figures can only be accepted if the manuscript's information can lose without those images; a chart is preferred to use black and white photos. The author could consign any picture or photo for the front cover, although it does not print in the manuscript. All images property of others should be mentioned source. The author is suggested referring to Wikipedia for international boundary and Google Earth for satellite imagery. If not specifically mentioned, it is assumed to refer to these sources.

    There is no appendix; all data or data analysis are incorporated into Results and Discussions. For comprehensive data, it can be displayed on the website as a supplement.

    REFERENCES: References should be in APA 6th /APA 7th style.
