The introduction describes the background of the problem being solved, issues related to the problem being solved, reviews of research that has been done previously by other researchers that are relevant to the research conducted, literature review, and research objectives.


Research methods can include analysis, architecture, methods used to solve problems, implementation. This section describes in detail about the research carried out.


This section is the main part of the research article and is usually the longest part of an article. The research results presented in this section are “clean” results. Data analysis processes such as statistical calculations and hypothesis testing processes do not need to be presented. Only the results of the analysis and the results of hypothesis testing need to be reported. Tables and graphs can be used to clarify the presentation of research results verbally. Tables and graphs should be commented on or discussed.

For qualitative research, the results section contains detailed sections in the form of sub-topics that are directly related to the research focus and categories.

The discussion in the article aims to: (1) answer the formulation of the problem and research questions; (2) shows how the findings were obtained; (3) interpreting/interpreting the findings; (4) linking research findings with established knowledge structures; and (5) bring up new theories or modifications of existing theories.

In answering the formulation of the problem and research questions, the research results must be concluded explicitly. The interpretation of the findings is carried out using existing logic and theories. Findings in the form of realities in the field are integrated/linked with the results of previous research or with existing theories. For this purpose there must be a reference. In generating new theories, old theories can be confirmed or rejected, some may need to modify the theory of the old theory.

In an article, sometimes it is unavoidable to organize the writing of research results into “subtitles”. The following is how to write the organizational format, which shows how to write specific things that cannot be separated from an article.

Abbreviations and Acronyms

Common abbreviations such as IEEE, SI, MKS, CGS, sc, dc, and rms do not need to be extended. However, acronyms that are not well known or acronyms created by the author need to be given a description of their length. For example: MiKiR learning model (Interactive, Collaborative, and Reflective Multimedia) can be used to practice mastery of problem solving skills. Do not use abbreviations or acronyms in article titles, unless it is unavoidable.


Writing units in articles pay attention to the following rules:

  • Use SI (MKS) or CGS as primary units, with SI system units being preferred.
  • Avoid combining SI and CGS units, as this can lead to confusion, because the dimensions of the equations can be unequal.
  • Do not mix unit abbreviations with complete units. For example, use the units “Wb/m2” or “webers per square meter”, not “webers/m2”.


The author should write the equation in Cambria font or Symbol font. If there are multiple equations, number the equations. Equation numbers should be sequential, place them on the far right, namely (1), (2), and so on. Use marks to make writing equations more concise. Use italic for variables, bold for vectors.

Use the following sizes in the Microsoft Equation Editor:

Full : 10 pt

Subscript/Superscript : 5 pt

Sub-subscript/superscript : 3 pt

Symbols : 16 pt

Sub-symbol : 10 pt

Pictures and Tables

Place table labels above the table, while image labels at the bottom of the table. Write down a specific table specifically, for example Table 1, when referencing a table.

While images are recommended to use the text box feature in MS Word to accommodate images or graphics, because the results tend to be stable to changes in formatting and page shifts compared to inserting images directly.

Quotes and Reference

One of the characteristics of scientific articles is to present other people's ideas to strengthen and enrich the author's ideas. The ideas that have been previously expressed by others are referred to (referenced), and the reference sources are included in the Bibliography.

Bibliography must be complete and in accordance with the references presented in the body of the article. That is, the sources written in the Bibliography are actually referenced in the body of the article. On the other hand, all references that have been mentioned in the article must be listed in the Bibliography. To show the quality of scientific articles, the list included in the Bibliography must be quite large. The bibliography is arranged alphabetically and the way of writing is adjusted to the rules specified in the journal. The rules for writing citations, references, and bibliography follow the rules of the Chicago Full note (footnote) and try to use the Zotero or Mendeley application.



The conclusion presents a summary of the description of the results and discussion, referring to the research objectives. Based on these two things, new ideas are developed which are the essence of the research findings.


Suggestions are prepared based on the research findings that have been discussed. Suggestions may refer to practical action, the development of new theories, and/or further research.
