Tables and figures must be given a title and number, while the source of the tables and figures are clearly and explicitly stated. The table title is typed from the left margin, while the image title is typed in the middle. Tables and figures should be in bold type. Source tables and figures must be placed below the tables and figures, typed from the left margin.

The manuscript should contain the following section in this order:
Research Paper, which is a final report on the finished original experimental study (the structure is Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, Conclusion);

a. Title
Title of articles in English should describe the main content of manuscripts, be informative, concise, and not too wordy (12-15 words only), Font 10 pt and do not contain formulas.

e. Keywords
Written in English 3-5 words or groups of words, written alphabetically after that written with the JEL Classification.

f. Introduction
Explain the research background, state of the art, literature review related to research that needs to be developed from research variables, research problems and concludes with brief research purpose. The state of the art of research reflects new issues (novelty) in the research conducted. The introductory proportion consists of 7-8 paragraphs and no more than 2,500 words.

g. Methodology
Research methods describe the design of a study (objectives and research variables), research targets (population, sample and data collection techniques), research models, research development and data analysis techniques. The research hypothesis must be stated implicitly.

h. Results and Discussion
Findings and discussion provide data analysis with respect to research questions. It is recommended to use tables, graphs, or diagrams that provide an explanation of the results of the study. Research discussions explain the results of the research data without including in the text of the research results but rather explain the importance of the research findings. The results of the study aim to be able to overcome the research problem, objectives and research hypotheses so that the research discussion can focus on research findings that occur implicitly.

i. Conclusion
The conclusions of the study are based on the findings and discussions that have been discussed. The substance of the conclusions is based on research findings, problem formulation, research objectives and research contributions without numerical and is presented in one paragraph.

j. References
The reference writing style uses the APA (American Psychological Association). It is recommended, the script is written using the Mendeley application, Endnote / Zotero.
