The Abstract - consists of 100 - 200 words containing the introduction (1-2 sentences), research methods (2-3 sentences), results, and discussion (minimum of 8 sentences), conclusions (1-2 sentences). Abstract wrote using Indonesian and English.

The Introduction - should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research which is innovation. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Figures and Tables - make sure Figures and Tables are numbered correctly and are referred to in Sentences. Avoid using the words "in the image above", "in the image below". Just call the name of Figure 1 or Figure 2. Then, replace the word "On" with the word "Based". Figures and Tables are not only included but results in the analysis must also be done.

Conclusions - A good conclusion should provide a statement that what is expected, as stated in the "Introduction" section can ultimately result in the "Results and Discussion" section, so there is compatibility. Moreover, it can also be added to the prospect of the development of research results and application prospects of further studies into the next (based on the results and discussion).

References - should be cited in text. Only references cited in text should be listed at the end of the paper.
Make sure the bibliography consists of at least 20 relevant references (according to the research topic) and the latest (60 percent of references are 5 years back from this year). Bibliography comes from national or international journals. Avoid references that come from internet pages such as web pages and blogs. That is because references from the internet do not go through a good review process and the information is not necessarily true.
