2. Author names and affiliations

Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled.

3. Abstract

The abstract is written in Bahasa Indonesia and in English either. The text must be in Times New Roman, 9pt font size, 1 line-spacing, within 75-250 words and followed by five keywords. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise.

 9. References and citations

all the used references must be taken from primary sources (scientific journals and the least number is 80% from all the references) that published in the last ten years.
