Abstract (Cambria 12)

The abstract content is written with Cambria10 font (1 space). Abstract consists of subject matter, objectives, methods, results, and conclusions.

The abstract content of English is a maximum of 250 words.

Keywords:  Consists of 3 to 5 words and/or group of words written in alphabetical order and separated by semicolons (;).



The introduction includes background to interest, issues, and research novelty. The purpose of the activity and problem-solving plan are presented in this section. The subtitle formulation of the problem, the purpose, usefulness of the research, and the benefits of the research do not need to be written but are directly written in the form of paragraphs. An introduction is written with Cambria 11 font (1.15 spaces).



The literature review includes scientific theories and concepts that are the source of reference for research/study writing. Reference sources should be sourced from primary reference material (articles) and minimize secondary sources (books). The source must be relevant to the topic being studied or researched and has a state of the art as well as the reference of the latest edition. Every reference source cited should be listed in the bibliography.

REFERENCES (Cambria12)

The material used as a reference should be within the last 10 years. The list of expected referrals is 80% of primary sources derived from national and international research articles. The higher the primary libraries, the more qualified the article is. Self-referenced authors' frequency (self-citation) can reduce judgment. One reference to article writing should be taken from an article in the previous issues. Writing a bibliography should use the APA (American Psychological Association) Style. The literature that is written is really the one referred to in the article and arranged alphabetically. Scriptwriting and citation referred to in this manuscript are suggested using reference applications such as Mendeley, Zotero, Reffwork, Endnote, and others. Write only the quoted libraries.


The above scripting styles are applied in the Journal of Management and Spread Management Journals template.
