INTRODUCTION

[11 pt Arial, Regular] papers should original research contributions. Papers must be submitted electronically via open journal systems and Register In website journal.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta. The manuscript is written in English or Bahasa with Arial (11pt), 1 (one) column, 1.15 spacing, on A4 paper. Authors are asked to send in the form of files typed with MS-Word program.

Introduction Section contains an explanation of why the issues need to be researched (research significance) and all supporting data or scientific evidence based on personal observations or the results of other researcher studies. The formulation of this research problem is always based on real conditions and objectively scientifically. Community engagement covers the services to society, applying science and technology based on their field, increasing the capacity of society, and community empowerment.

There is no theoretical background section in this manuscript. But you must input your theoretical background in the Introduction section. The theoretical background contains previous theories as the basis of research and the temporary hypothesis. The theory can be in the form of scientific articles, articles in journals, textbooks, or other sources of scientific writing. This theory will be used to provide state of the art of your manuscript from research problems that have been proposed. In the context of community engagement, the theory that should be used primarily is the theory related to community engagement, community development, or community services. Other theories that are still needed to solve the problem of research to support theories that are delivered after the theory of community engagement are discussed.

After the theories are mentioned and discussed, you need to form a problem that shows why this manuscript is important, state of the Art (SOTA) or gap analysis, previous research, and you must write the purpose of the manuscript. Example of the gaps Analysis and previous research statement is at the end of the Introduction section (after theories are mentioned and discussed): “........ (summary of background)....... A previous research explained on ....... This research is limited on ........ Indeed, this research intends to ................. The purpose of this research that related to community engagement are .........”.

 

METHOD

The method section structure should: describe the materials used in the study, explain how the materials were prepared for the study, describe the research protocol, explain how measurements were made and what calculations were performed, and state which statistical tests were done to analyze the data. The method must clear with the location and time of the research, the population, and sample of the study, the research variables, and the research data. The method of your manuscript also mentions the detail of your community engagement program

 

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

  1. [11 pt. Arial, Bold] Chapter of Discussion in Paper

The presentation of the research can be done with the help of tables, drawings/graphs, maps/plans, and schemes.

The result and discussion of your manuscript also interconnected with the theory as well as the novelty of your manuscript about community engagement. The results and discussion part should also describe the implication of this community engagement program to the community. The minimum of your explanation in this chapter ranges from 40% to 50% of your manuscript.

Example of citation, Multiculturalism is an ideology that  confessed  and  glorified  the  difference  in  equality  both individually as well as in culture [1].  The culture that should be understood is not the culture in the narrow sense, but rather a culture is understood as all the dialectics of man against his life [2], [3].

Figure 1. Abcd

 

Tables and figures should be incorporated in the text as close to the reference as possible and should be in a form suitable for publication when printed with a good quality laser printer.  Figures will be printed in black and white and should be readily interpreted without the use of color. Tables and figures may extend across both columns [4].

Captions should be Arial 11-point, centered. Tables and pictures should be sequentially numbered in separate series.  Captions for tables should be above the table. Captions for figures should be below the figure [5].
