The Introduction consists of no more than four concise paragraphs. It should also contain background and research objectives that explain phenomena and research problems. It should also be related to previous studies, especially research gaps or limitations from previous studies. The author's hope to fill in research gap/limitations, or the author must briefly explain the purpose of writing at the end of the Introduction. The Introduction is in the form of a narrative and does not use numbering.

Literature Review

This section describes the theoretical basis used as the basis for analysis in research. This section also contains previous studies, research gaps or ummah, and debates and developments in the concepts or theories used. The literature used must be under the topic of the article being written. The author can provide a logical basis for developing research hypotheses or propositions and research models.

Research Methodology

The Research Methodology includes the type of research, research design, population and sample, data collection techniques and instruments, measurement and operational definition of variables, and data analysis procedures.

Results and Discussion

Results are research findings and should be clear and concise without opinions. This section contains the results of data analysis or statistical descriptions required.

The Discussion section is the author's interpretation of the research findings that can answer the limitations/research gaps of previous research and not repeat the research findings. The Discussion section includes how the research results related to the research objectives (what)? Do the authors provide a scientific interpretation of each finding presented (why)? Moreover, are the research results consistent or contradictory to the research results from other researchers (what else)? 


The Conclusion section is the answer to the research objectives. The conclusions include a summary of the research, the contribution/implications of the study, the limitations of the study, and as far as possible, suggest potential areas for further research. The Conclusion section is written in a clear, concise, and does not re-quote previous research.

Each table/illustration must be referred to in the narrative in the article manuscript. Tables/charts contained in articles should be editable tables/charts. Every table/illustration must be seen/read clearly (not blurred or stretched). Uploaded image files must be editable, in [.jpg] or [.PNG] picture format, and with a minimum size of 700 x 700 pixels. Graphics/images are referred to as illustrations.

The decimal number in the table/charts is not more than three decimal digits with the smallest letter size 8. Each letter in the table should be written in black colour only. The tables/charts are colourless (only black/white). The title of the table/illustration is centred and numbered using Arabic numerals. The title of the table/illustration should not be bolded. Between the title and the table/illustration are spaced one line apart. Only horizontal lines are used in tables to distinguish column headings from the body of the table and directly above and below the table. Tables/illustrations must be embedded in the body of the manuscript and are not provided separately (except tables/illustrations that are more than one page in size can be put in the Appendix).

Tables should not be in the images form to facilitate editing. Each table/illustration is inserted into a "text box" so that it can be easily moved, and placed at the top or bottom of the page. If the table/illustration size takes up two or more columns, it should be placed on the next page.

The way of numbering tables/illustrations in the body of the manuscript is different from the tables/illustrations in the Appendix. For tables/illustrations in the manuscript's body, they are numbered according to the order in which the tables/illustrations exist. Tables/illustrations in the Appendix should be numbered according to the order in which the table/illustration is attached. An example of writing the title and how to number the table/illustration is as follows:

Example of tables/illustrations in the body of the manuscript:

Table 1. Gross Domestic Product 2010-2013

Based on the prevailing price

Table 2. Number of poor people per zone

(in millions)

Chart 1. Respondent distribution data

Chart 2. Indonesian unemployment statistics, 2012-2013

Illustration 1. Covid-19 zone distribution map
