Abstract (TNR, 10) Each article, irrespective of its primary language, must provide abstracts in both English and Bahasa Indonesia. The abstract should state the context of the problem, the aim of the research, main methods, key results, and significant conclusions. Refrain from adding references or citations in the abstract. Given that the abstract can be presented independently from the article, ensure it is comprehensive on its own. All text within the article, including the abstract, should employ the Times New Roman (TNR) font.

  • Abstract (English): Authors should succinctly convey their research's essential aspects in English here.
  • Abstrak (Bahasa Indonesia): Penulis harus menyampaikan aspek esensial dari penelitian mereka dalam Bahasa Indonesia di sini.

Keywords: Include 3 to 5 keywords in alphabetical order.

Introduction (TNR, 12) The JSI welcomes submissions in both English and Bahasa Indonesia from researchers, lecturers, students, and practitioners. Authors should ensure their contributions have not been previously published elsewhere. The format specified here aims to maintain JSI's consistent presentation. Authors can utilize this template by copying or downloading it, or by requesting it via email from the editorial team. After acquisition, replace placeholder content with your own.

Articles should not exceed 10 pages. The composition should include an introduction, detailing the issue and associated literature, followed by the methods, results, discussion, and a conclusion or recommendations section. Any acknowledgments should appear at the end. All references within the text should be listed in the "References" section and vice versa. The introduction should cite a minimum of five recent articles to underscore the research's relevance.

Material and Method (TNR, 12) Clearly outline the research methodologies employed. For unconventional methods, provide a detailed description. Where applicable, describe procedures using flowcharts, illustrations, or other relevant visuals.

Result and Discussion (TNR, 12) Present findings through narratives, tables, graphs, or images, ensuring clarity and conciseness. The discussion should elaborate on the results and relate them to the initial questions or problems posed.

Conclusion (TNR, 12) Highlight the main findings and contributions of your research. Ensure that the conclusion doesn't merely restate the results but provides a synthesis and meaningful insights.

Acknowledgment (TNR, 12) Express gratitude in one paragraph, preferably mentioning those who significantly supported the research. This section should appear before the "References".

References (TNR, 12) Ensure your references are primarily from original research sources and are current (from the last ten years). References should be formatted in the Mendeley tool using the APA 7th edition style. A minimum of 15 references is required, with at least 30% from journals published within the last five years from your submission date
