The abstract should stand alone, meaning that no citations are in the abstract. The abstract should concisely inform the reader of the manuscript’s purpose, its novelty, methods, and findings, and its value with no more than 200 words, should be presented in English.


(Introduction/Main ObjectivesDescribe the topic your paper examines. Provide a background to your paper and why is this topic interesting. Avoid unnecessary content. (Background Problems) State the problem or economic/business phenomena studied in this paper and specify the research question(s) in one sentence. (Novelty) Briefly explain why no one else has adequately researched the question yet. Declare your research gap. (Research Methods) Provide an outline of the research method(s) and data used in this paper. Explain your research design by defining your research type, quantitative/qualitative, the reason why choosing specific object of research, analytical tools, sample size/sample criteria, and sampling technique. (Finding/Results) List the empirical finding(s) and write a discussion in one or two sentences. (Conclusion) Provide conclusion(s) and implication(s) of your research. End your sentences with the answer of the main take-home message from your research.



Keywords are an important part of writing an abstract. Authors should select a maximum of five keywords that are specific and reflect what is essential about the article. Keywords and the article’s classification should be provided after the abstract.



The introduction should start with the research background (why are you conducting the research?), problem (what is the problem/gap of the study?), and purpose (what is the purpose of the research?) that demonstrate the motives of the research. The introduction should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution. Explaining the problem’s formulation should cover the following points: 1). Problem recognition and its significance; 2). Clear identification of the problem and the appropriate research questions; 3). Coverage of problem’s complexity; and 4). Well-defined objectives.



The purpose of a literature review is to look again (re + view) at what other researchers have done regarding a specific topic. Literature review investigates the gap that will be exposed and solved. The flow of all the ideas are required to be clear, linked, well-crafted and well developed. It serves as the source of the research question and especially the base or the hypotheses that respond to the research objective. A good literature review does not merely summarize relevant previous research. In the literature review, the researcher critically evaluates, re-organizes and synthesizes the work of others. The key to a successful literature review lies in author(s) ability to “digest” information from different sources, critically evaluate it and resent conclusions in a concise, logical and reader-friendly manner.


Theory A

This section contains referred theoretical and linked to the research and hypothesis development. We highly advise author(s) using current and primary sources from trusted international references (top tier-journals) that published no more than 10 years. For quantitative research with hypothesis testing, write your hypothesis with this following format: 

H1:       Write the formulated hypothesis



The research methodology should cover the following points: 1). Concise explanation of the research’s methodology is prevalent; 2). Reasons for choosing the particular methods are well described; 3). The research’s design is accurate; the sample’s design is appropriate; 4). The data collection processes are properly conducted; 5). The data analysis methods are relevant and state-of-the-art.



This section contains of minimal four sub section for quantitative research that is consist of descriptive analysis that explain the description of respondent, data analysis result (like validity and reliability, manipulation check, classical assumption-if any), research analysis (to test instrument and hypothesis-if any), and research discussion. For qualitative research, author(s) can directly states their research analysis and discussion without dividing into sub section. At the end of your analysis and discussion, please don’t forget to mention what is your research proportion. The author needs to report the results in sufficient detail so that the reader can see which statistical analysis was conducted and why, and later to justify their conclusions. The discussion should develop an argument by correlating results, theory, and opinion, including comparative results of previous research. It is important to state the possibility of contribution result of the research for science development. The discussion section should not merely restate the findings reported in the result section or report additional findings that have not been discussed earlier in the article. The focus should instead be on highlighting the broader implications of the study's findings and relating these back to previous research.



Consist of conclusion and also suggestion. Conclusion should be the answer of research problem, unequivocal statement. Suggestion should be logical and appropriate. The author should present brief conclusions from the results of research with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers.



The manuscript is expected to involve approximately 20-25 primary and up-to-date references to assert high-quality contributions to the knowledge development. Authors are encouraged to cite manuscripts mainly from primary source publications (journals) from the last ten years. In addition, authors should avoid excessively referencing their own work (self-citation). Citations and references must strictly follow the APA (American Psychological Association) style. We recommend that the authors should use reference management software, such as Mendeley, Zotero, RefWorks, or basic Microsoft Word References Manager.





This section is provided for the author to express his gratitude either for the research funders or the other parties who contribute into research realization.
