Manuscripts should be submitted through online submission. This online submission system facilitates the submission and streamlines the review process as well as the publisher's decision. The manuscript should be submitted by one author. The names and emails of all authors must be entered during submission. Submission conducted by anyone other than one of the authors (s) will not be processed. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review.
PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPT.
The manuscript must be prepared using MS Word and should be written in English and Bahasa language in a clear, concise, and objective form.

The length of the manuscript is not more than 15 pages, including references, tables, and figures. Manuscripts may be declined or rejected on the basis of unsatisfactory command of language and format. Manuscripts should be organized in the given format: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Literature Review, Result and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgements, References, and Appendices (if applicable).

1. Title Page
The title should be as concise as possible but informative enough to facilitate information retrieval. An abbreviation is avoided. The name of the author(s) and affiliation(s) should be provided separately on the Title page. The corresponding author should indicate together with the e-mail address. Give the affiliation of each author and the complete mailing address of the institution where the work was conducted.

The first manuscript should start with the manuscript's title and is followed by an abstract. The abstract should be written between 150 - 250 words. The abstract should be a clear, concise, and informative summary of the scope and purpose, samples and methodology, significant results, and major conclusion as well as an indication of any new things. The abstract should not contain literature citations that refer to the main list of references attached article nor allusions to the illustration. Define all nonstandard symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms on their first use. The abstract should be written as one paragraph and should not contain displayed mathematical equation(s) or tabular material.
Below the abstract, the author(s) should provide keywords. The keywords are used to facilitate the retrieval of articles by search engines and will be used for indexing purposes, therefore avoiding using general terms. Provide 3 to 5 specific and sustainable keywords related to the manuscript.
The introduction is an obligatory part of the paper. it is next to the part of the keywords. In the introduction part, the research goal should be clearly stated alongside the research tasks. If applicable, an introduction should contain motivation and is followed by the phenomenon of research. Authors should indicate clearly the novelty of the topic and its urgent scientific solution. In this part, no figure and/or table is allowed.
5. Literature Review
A literature review for qualitative and quantitative research should consider a systematic structure. A literature review for quantitative research should contain a review of the literature in relation to variables studied, conceptual framework(s), and hypothesis testing. At the end of the session, if applicable, the author(s) should provide a research model. In review literature, it should begin with the discussion of the dependent variable(s), which is then followed by independent variables. Review literature with the use of international references rather than a book is deliberately suggested. Each review session of studied variables should contain at least three international references. This is also valid in the conceptual part. Qualitative research begins with grand theories in relation to the research focus.
6. Method and Materials
A research methodology is taken place after reviewing of literature. In this part, the author should state the research instrument used for data collection, samples, and the method used for sample selection. The validity and reliability of the questionnaire must be stated clearly for primary data. Before methods selection, it should provide prerequisite tests for the chosen method.
Findings are conducted after materials and methods. This part includes a descriptive statistic. A descriptive statistic is the presentation of data in relation to the mean, standard deviation, maximum value, and minimum value of the main variables. For research using primary data, the descriptive statistic is possible to include information related to the structure of respondents (age, gender, work experience, and others) and the structure of companies.
The next is prerequisite tests for the methodology applied in the research. There are two prerequisite tests that can be explained in this section. Firstly, it is the reliability and validity of the research instrument. Secondly, with respect to the method used, some methods require a prerequisite test before applying them. In that case, the author must provide an overview result of each prerequisite test equipped with interpretation justified by its sources.
Authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from the perspective of previous studies and the working hypotheses. The findings and their implications should be discussed in the broadest context possible. Future research directions may also be highlighted. The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
This section is not mandatory but can be added to the manuscript if the discussion is unusually long or complex.
