- Abstract

Abstract is defined as a comprehensive summary of a study (150-250 words). The content of a good abstract consists of a concise research background, objectives research, research methods in brief, main results of research and conclusions. Abstract is written in one paragraph

- Keyword

Keywords are an important part of writing an abstract. Authors should select a maximum of five keywords that are specific and reflect what is essential about the article. Keywords and the article’s classification should be provided after the abstract.


- Manuscripts submitted to this journal should have the following main headings: Introduction

The novelty of research supported by relevant theory and previous research must be written clearly. This section is also obliged to explain the relationship between variables, relevant research results, and supporting data (if any). This section is closed with the aim of research or a statement of the research problem.

- Methods

The research method is a strategy used by researchers to answer research problems.

Discussion of results contains an explanation of the research implications regarding the relevance of the analysis, theory, previous research, and contributions to a science. Researchers are advised to consider the opinions expressed by Feldman (2004) to facilitate the process of writing the discussion section as follows: ” What do we know now we didn’t know before hand ?,Why might the results have come out the way they did ?, How do the results inform our theoretical understanding of a phenomenon or our methodological approach to studying some topic?”
