Author Guidelines


Manuscripts written in Bahasa Indonesia must include abstracts in both English and Bahasa Indonesia. However, including an abstract in Bahasa Indonesia is optional for English articles. Including the research objective/s, methods, results, and conclusion in the abstract must be no longer than 250 words and incorporate at least three keywords alphabetically.

Keywords: instructions, writing, journal, JPDR

1. Introduction

We welcome a variety of manuscripts, including original research articles, book reviews, conceptual or theoretical frameworks, and philosophical views. The article should be structured as follows: Introduction (including a thorough literature review), Methods, Findings, and Discussion (including analysis), and Concluding Remarks (including recommendations, if any). The manuscript should be typed in Open Sans font, 11 pts, with one spacing, A4 paper size, and Word for Windows, with a maximum length of 7000 words.

2. Write the Title

The article's title should be eye-catching and attention-grabbing while being precise and concise. It should be center-aligned and written in Open Sans, 14 pts bold, with a maximum of 14 words. The author's name/s should be placed below the article title using title case format without any academic or other titles, including the affiliated institution name/s. The title should also be written in English for articles written in Bahasa Indonesia to maximize readership.

3. Write the Abstract

The abstract is a crucial part of your manuscript that summarizes the problem statement, aim/s, methods, analysis, results, and conclusion. For manuscripts written in Bahasa Indonesia, providing an abstract in Bahasa Indonesia and English, with a maximum length of 250 words, is mandatory. The Indonesian abstract (abstract) should use Open Sans font, 9 pts, while the English abstract should be written in Open Sans, 9 pts. Keywords should be written in italics and follow the same format as the abstract.

4. Write the Body of Article

The body of your article should be engaging, informative, and well-structured. We recommend using Open Sans font, 11 pts, with left-right alignment and 30 mm margins on the top, bottom, right, and left sides. The paper size should be A4. Could you follow the structure of the Introduction, Methods, Findings and Discussion, and Concluding Remarks, as outlined in the Template Article?

5. Tables and Figures

Tables and figures are an excellent way to present complex data or information in a visually appealing way. The title of the Table/Figure should be concise, with a maximum of 12 words, and center-aligned in bold using Open Sans, 11 pts. The source of the Table/Figure should be acknowledged immediately after the title in parentheses and italics using Open Sans, 9 pts. For tables, the title and the source should be placed before the table, while for figures, the title and the source should be placed after the figure.

6. Acknowledgement

Any person, institution, or other party contributing to the manuscript's completion can be acknowledged. For a research-based article, at least the funding source/s of the research should be acknowledged.

7. Write the References

References should be written in one spacing using Open Sans, 11 pts. Please use the APA 6 quoting style. I've included examples of references below.
