13. The method section consists of a description concerning the research design, data sources, data collection, and data analysis with a proportion of  10-15% of the total article length, all presented in the form of paragraphs.

14. The findings and discussion section consist of the description of the results of the data analysis to answer the research question(s) and their meanings are seen from current theories and references of the area addressed. The proportion of this section is 40-60% of the total article length.

15. The conclusion section consists of the summary, and restatement of the main findings.

16. Use only horizontal lines when using tables. Put the table number and the title of the table on top of it.

The sources cited are primary sources in the form of journal articles, books, and research reports, including theses and dissertations. Citations from journal should be at least 80% of the total references cited.
