Authors should carefully prepare their manuscripts according to the following guidelines:

(1) All manuscripts must be prepared according to the journal's manuscript template and the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 7th edition (2020);

(4) Manuscripts should be as short as possible, but detailed enough to allow for adequate communication and critical review;

(5) Tables and figures are used only when necessary.

(2) Manuscript files must be digital. We recommend using Microsoft Office software with a document extension (.rtf, .doc, or .docx), to make it easier to follow and replace the contents of the JPF script template. -- hard copy submission is not accepted.

(3) Document format style: Manuscript Type at A4 Margins Left, top, right, bottom: 2 cm. Body text uses one column; single line spacing -- before = 0 and after = 6; the font is black, and; uses only one space after each word period. For specific information on technical information about the content of the manuscript, see and use the JPF Template.

(4) The manuscript consists of no more than 6,000 words (or a maximum of 12 pages and a minimum of 4 pages) and 8 pictures/tables (Appendix--Not Included).

(5) The structure of the manuscript should have clear numbering in every section.

(6) Mathematics formulas should be created by using the Microsoft equation program. Variables are italicized.

(7) Image captions must be included on each image/illustration. Captions are written separately, not attached to pictures/illustrations.

(8) Table numbering is adjusted according to the location of the article. Tables must be used effectively, not to re-explain what has been presented or explained before or after it.

 A Review of the Article

A review of the article is conducted to review whether the article meets the standard of quality criteria to be published. The manuscript will be directly rejected by editors without giving any formal reviews if: 1) the topic is not suitable for the scope of the journal, 2) the results are less beneficial, 3) the scope and purpose are not deeply formulated, 4) the findings do not improve the scientific knowledge, 5) the article is not written completely. Eligible manuscripts will be reviewed by reviewers for 2 weeks then the reviewer's note will be delivered to authors 3 weeks after the first submission. Authors should send the article revision to the editor a week after receiving the reviewers' notes.

Abstract: Abstract in English written in Times New Roman (TNR)-11, single space, 200 words in one paragraph, consisting of purpose, method, finding, and conclusion. The abstract should be written separately from the article. Reference should not be written in the abstract, but if it is indispensable, the authors’ names and publication years should be cited. The nonstandard abbreviation should be avoided, but if it is indispensable, the full name should be specified in its initial mention.

Keywords: 3 or 5 important; specific; and representative words or phrases.


The introduction contains background, rationality, and urgency of research. References (relevant literature or research) related to the justification of the urgency of research, the emergence of research problems, alternative solutions, and selected solutions need to be included in this part. A gap analysis is needed to describe the urgency of the research. The problems and objectives, as well as the usefulness of research written in narrative paragraphs, need not be given a special subtitle. Likewise, the operational definition, if deemed necessary, is also written narratively.

Citations are written by including name and year (Lastname, 2018). If at the end of the sentence, it is written in the form (Lastname1, 2019; Lastname2, Lastname3, & Lastname4, 2017), and citations will be written as follows Lastname2, Lastname3, & Lastname4 (2017) if placed at the beginning of the sentence. The introduction is written with upright TNR-12, with a space of 1. Each paragraph begins with a word that protrudes about 1 cm from the left edge of each column.


Contains the research design & procedures, research subject (population and sample), data collection, instrument, and data analysis, and other matters related to the way the research is conducted. Methods used should be accompanied by references, and relevant modifications should be explained.

Methods can be written in sub-sections, with sub-sub headings. Subtitles do not need to be given a notation but are written in lowercase letters beginning with a capital letter, Times New Roman-12 unbold, left flat. For example, you can see the following.

Research Design & Procedures

The research design used should be written in this section. For qualitative research, the time and place of research need to be written clearly (for quantitative research, it is also necessary). Procedures need to be described according to the type of research. How research is conducted and data obtained needs to be described in this section.

Population and Sample

Target/subject research (for qualitative research) or populations-sample (for quantitative research) and the techniques used need to be clearly described in this part.

Data Collection and Instrument

The types of data, data collection techniques, and instruments need to be clearly described in this part.

Data Analysis

How to interpret the data obtained and its relation to the problems and objectives of the research needs to be explained clearly.

(Note: Sub-sections can be different, according to the type of research approach used. If there is a procedure or step that is sequential in nature, it can be given a notation (number or letter) according to its position).

Result and Discussion:

The research results are presented in the form of graphs, tables, or descriptive. Analysis and interpretation of these results are needed before the discussion. The discussion should include merit journal aspects (what/how? why? and what else?).

The table is written in the middle or at the end of each text description of the results /research findings. If the table's width is not enough to be written on half a page, it can be written as a full page. The table title is written from the middle center left, all words begin with uppercase letters, except conjunctions. If more than one line is written in a single space (at least 12). For example, this can be seen in Table 1 below.

Table 1. The title is written in TNR 11


The results are in the form of images, or data made by images/schemes/graphs/diagrams/similarities, the presentation also follows the existing rules; the title or name of the image is placed below the image, from the left, and is spaced 1 space (at least 12) from the image. If more than 1 line, between lines, is given a single space, or at least 12. For example, this can be seen in Figure 1 below.


Figure 1. The Title or Caption of the Figure is written in TNR 11

The discussion is focused on linking the data and the results of the analysis to the problems or objectives of the study and the broader theoretical context. Can also discussion is the answer to the question of why are facts found in the data? The discussion is written and attached to the data discussed. The discussion was tried not separately from the data discussed.


The conclusions can be generalized findings based on research problems, it can also be a recommendation for the next step and then help the reader understand why your research should matter to them after they have finished reading the paper. A conclusion is not merely a summary of the main topics covered or a re-statement of your research problem, but a synthesis of key points. It is important that the conclusion does not leave the question unanswered.

Another important thing, please do not rewrite the abstract; statements with “investigated” or “studied” are not conclusions; do not introduce new arguments, evidence, new ideas, or information unrelated to the topic; do not include evidence (quotations, statistics, etc.) that should be in the body of the paper.
