BODY TEXT

INTRODUCTION

  • Clearly identify the research problem, rationale, context, international relevance of the topic
  • Provide the gap to show the significance of your study
  • Present the scientific, conceptual, or theoretical framework that guided the study, identifying and providing an overview of the conceptual model and/or theory where appropriate. 
  • Explain connections between study variables and support those connections with the relevant theoretical and empirical literature.
  • Explain the connections between the scientific hypothesis, conceptual model or theory, and the study variables. 
  • Objective(s): State the objectives of the study as a narrative study purpose or as research questions or hypotheses to be tested at the end of the introduction. For example, ‘The aim of the study was to…’

METHODS

Methods should be structured, including:

Design of Study: Clearly Identify the specific research design used, for example correlational, experimental, quasi-experimental, cross-sectional, and longitudinal study.

Sample or Participants:  Identify the sampling strategy/strategies used: random; stratified; convenience; purposive (state what purpose). Identify the inclusion and exclusion criteria. For example, ‘The inclusion criteria were…’, ‘The exclusion criteria were…’ Explain how the participants were recruited. Identify the size of the sample (and the population, if appropriate). Report the sample size calculation, or power analysis, if appropriate; if not appropriate or not undertaken, provide another type of justification for the sample size

Instruments: Clearly state the information whether you develop, adopt, adapt, or modify the instrument. Clearly state the validity and reliability of the instrument.

Intervention (Only for Experimental Studies): clearly explain the process of intervention, setting, and those who did the intervention

Data Collection and Data Analysis: Describe when and where the data were collected, who collect the data. Describe the techniques used to analyze the data, including computer software used, if appropriate. For example, ‘SPSS version X was used to analyze the data. Analysis of variance techniques was used to test the hypotheses

Ethical Consideration: Identify any particular ethical issues that were attached to this research. Provide a statement of ethics committee approval. Do not name the university or other institution from which ethics committee approval was obtained; state only that ethics committee approval was obtained from a university and/or whatever other organization is relevant

RESULTS

The study findings should be clear and concise. If the findings present in the table or diagram, there must not be any overlap between findings shown in the table/diagram and description that are written in the text. The tables are arranged in a row, each table should be briefly titled and placed on top of the table, the title of the table is written in capital letters at the beginning of the word, except for the foreground. The maximum number of tables in each article is 6 tables. Photos, pictures, and diagrams are arranged in sequence, and given a short title and placed on the photo/drawing/diagram with a maximum of 3 pieces.

 

DISCUSSION

Describe the discussion by comparing the data obtained at this time with the data obtained in the previous study or the concept and theory. No more statistical or other mathematical symbols in the discussion. The discussion is directed at an answer to the research hypothesis. Emphasis was placed on similarities, differences, or the uniqueness of the findings obtained. It is a need to discuss the reason for the findings. The implications of the results are written to clarify the impact of the results the advancement of science is studied. The discussion ended with the various limitations of the study

 

CONCLUSION

The conclusion can be in the form of finding generalization based on the research problems. Suggestions can be in the form of input/proposition for future researchers, or implicative recommendations from the research findings on theory, practice, and probably policy.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT (IF ANY)

Acknowledgment is given to the funding sources of study and those who support that funding. The names of those who support or assist the study are written clearly. Names that have been mentioned as the authors of the manuscripts are not allowed here.
