  • Information of article

Title: no more than 16 words; Author(s) name: is fully writen without any title; Institution: is completely stated, including the institution name; Corresponding author: includes name & email address

  • Abstract

An abstract is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the article; it allows readers to survey the contents of an article quickly and, like a title, it enables persons interested in the document to retrieve it from abstracting and indexing databases. Most scholarly journals require an abstract. Consult the instructions to authors or web page of the journal to which you plan to submit your article for any journal-specific instructions. A well-prepared abstract can be the most important single paragraph in an article. Most people have their first contact with an article by seeing just the abstract, usually in comparison with several other abstracts, as they are doing a literature search. Readers frequently decide on the basis of the abstract whether to read the entire article. The abstract needs to be dense with information. By embedding key words in your abstract, you enhance the user's ability to find it. Do not exceed the abstract word limit of the journal to which you are submitting your article. Word limits vary from journal to journal and typically range from 100 to 150 words.

  • Keywords: low case, comma, paper template, abstract, keywords, introduction
  • Introduction

The introduction includes 7 things, namely: (1) general introduction, namely introduction of general problems to specific problems, (2) problem definition, namely exposure of the main research topic, (3) gaps in literature, namely gaps found through comparison with relevant previous research, (4) problem solution, namely the solution offered by the researcher, (5) study motivation, namely the motivation of the researcher to conduct research, (6) aim and objectives, namely the main purpose of research, and (7) the significance contribution and advantages of the study, namely an explanation of the benefits expected from the research.

Some other things that need to be considered in writing the introduction include: the novelty of the literature (maximum of the last 10 years except the main reference sources that are no longer published), the literature used must be analyzed critically or not only definitions, using indirect quotes and using paraphrasing techniques and use the turabian 9th edition footnote.

  • Method

Materials and methods should make readers be able to reproduce the experiment. Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Do not repeat the details of established methods.

Identify Subsections

It is both conventional and expedient to divide the Method section into labeled subsections. These usually include a section with descriptions of the participants or subjects and a section describing the procedures used in the study. The latter section often includes description of (a) any experimental manipulations or inter-ventions used and how they were delivered-for example, any mechanical apparatus used to deliver them; (b) sampling procedures and sample size and precision; (c) measurement approaches (including the psychometric properties of the instruments used); and (d) the research design. If the design of the study is complex or the stimuli require detailed description, additional subsections or subheadings to divide the subsections may be warranted to help readers find specific information.

Include in these subsections the information essential to comprehend and replicate the study. Insufficient detail leaves the reader with questions; too much detail burdens the reader with irrelevant information. Consider using appendices and/or a supplemental website for more detailed information.

Participant (Subject) Characteristics

Appropriate identification of research participants is critical to the science and practice of psychology, particularly for generalizing the findings, making comparisons across replications, and using the evidence in research syntheses and secondary data analyses. If humans participated in the study, report the eligibility and exclusion criteria, including any restrictions based on demographic characteristics.

Research Design

Specify the research design in the Method section. Were subjects placed into conditions that were manipulated, or were they observed naturalistically? If multiple conditions were created, how were participants assigned to conditions, through random assignment or some other selection mechanism? Was the study conducted as a between-subjects or a within-subject design?

  • Result

Some of the provisions in writing research result include: the result are presented briefly but sufficient to support conclusions that are in accordance with the research objectives; data can be presented using tables, charts or graphs so that it is easier to read but the same data is not presented repeatedly with different representations; and interpret research result supported by sufficient evidence, so it is not just an assumption.

  • Discussion

The discussion section is the most important part of a scientific article. Therefore, this section must pay attention to the following: (1) comparisons, namely comparing research results with previous studies and theories related to research; (2) causal arguments, namely arguments that explain why the result can occur; (3) contributions, namely an explanation of the contribution of research to science; (4) limitations, namely the limitations of the study; and (5) research agenda and recommendations, namely explanations regarding further studies or their implementation.

  • Conclusion

Conclusions should answer the objectives of research. Tells how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. Without clear Conclusions, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it merits publication in the journal. Do not repeat the Abstract, or just list experimental results. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out those that are underway.

  • References (minimum 15 references)

Use a reference management application such as Mendeley, Zotero, or EndNote in turabian 9th edition format.
