8. Manuscript Preparation Guidelines

The manuscript should be typed using word processors (Microsoft Word or Open Office) software. The font used throughout the paper is Book Antiqua. The paper size is A4 (i.e., 210 x 297 mm), one-column format with a 1.42 inches margin at the top, a 1.42 inches margin at the bottom, 1.22 inches margin on the left, and 1.22 inches margin on the right.

Manuscript submitted to this journal should follow the heading below, except for the review article: Title; Authors’ Name; Authors’ Affiliation; Corresponding email; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction; Methods; Results and Discussion; Conclusions; Acknowledgments; and References.

8.1  Title page

The organization shown below should be followed (in the order given):

a. Title of the paper (12 pt, bold, center)

b. Author name(s) (11 pt, bold, center)

c. Author affiliation(s) (11 pt, center)

d. Address(es) of the institution(s) at which the work was performed (11 pt, center)

e. Email addresses of the corresponding author to whom the revision or galley proofs of the paper are to be sent. (11 pt, center)

The title should be brief and should not exceed 20 words. The affiliation address for each author should be indicated by superscript Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.).

8.2  Abstract (11 pt, bold)

Articles must include an abstract of 150-250 words. The abstract should not repeat the information that already exists in the title. The abstract should be written in English and Bahasa Indonesia.

8.3  Keywords (11 pt, italics)

Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords written in alphabetical order. Please avoid general terms, multiple concepts (avoid, for example, and or of), and abbreviations. Only abbreviations firmly established in the field are eligible.

8.4  Introduction (12 pt, bold)

The introduction should explain: (1) the mathematics education problems which were identified and addressed in the research, (2) The ideal conditions of learning mathematics outcomes, (3) identification of knowledge or research gap, and (4) the statement of research purposes or research questions. There is no subchapter or heading for theoretical review.

8.5  Methods (12 pt, bold)

This part addresses the methods employed in the research. It includes types of research, research subjects, research instruments, data sources, data collections, and data analysis. The author(s) must pay careful attention to the data analysis since it is not just a general step. For example, the author(s) states that the data was analyzed through four steps; reducing data, displaying data, making an inference, and verification. The four steps are required to be operationally elaborated referring to what the author(s) did in the research.

8.6  Results and Discussion (12 pt, bold)

The results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Results can be presented in figures, tables, and text. The discussion or analysis of the findings is not enough to just state that it relates to prior studies.  The Discussion should be an interpretation of the results rather than a repetition of the Results. The discussion links the data and analysis results with the problem or research objective and a broader theoretical context.

8.6.1  Figures

Use Arabic numerals to number all figures (e.g., Figure 1, Figure 2) according to their sequence in the text. The figure title and number are below the figure. It is placed in the middle with all words start using a capital letter, except conjunctions. If it is more than one line, the title is written in a single space.

Figure 1. The Comparison of the Students' Mathematics Learning Outcomes

8.6.2  Tables

Each table must be numbered by using Arabic numerals (e.g., Table 1, Table 2) and include a title. Tables are sequentially numbered with their titles and put them above the table. Place footnotes of the tables under the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.), not symbols. Do not use vertical rulings in the tables. Each column in a table must have a heading and abbreviations, when necessary, it should be defined in the footnotes. The table title is placed in the middle with all the words start using a capital letter, except for conjunctions. If the title is more than one line, it is written in a single space.

8.6.3  Equations

The equation should be prepared using MS Equation Editor (not in image format). Equations are numbered if they are to be used again as references. If not, the equations don't need to be numbered. The numbers used are only numbers within parentheses as shown in Equation (1). The equation number is to be placed on the extreme right side.

y = mx + c                                                                                                (1)

8.6.4  Units, Abbreviations, and Symbols

Metric units are preferred. Define abbreviations and symbols for the first time as they are introduced in the text.

8.7  Conclusion (12 pt, bold)

Conclusion answers the objective of a research. It is not the replication of results and discussion but a sharp highlight of the findings which refer to research objectives. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. You should also suggest further research. Conclusion is written in the form of a descriptive paragraph, not numbers.

8.8  Acknowledgments (12 pt, bold)

Acknowledgment is optional. The author/s is encouraged to acknowledge any parties that give a contribution to the research.

8.9  References (12 pt, bold)

The Reference section must include all relevant published works, and all listed references must be cited in the text. Cite the main scientific publications on which your work is based. Avoid excessive self-citations. Avoid excessive citations of publications from the same region. Check each reference again from the original source (authors' name, volume, issue, year, DOI Number). Please use Reference Manager Applications like Mendeley, Zotero, EndNote, etc. Use other published articles in the same journal as models.

References are published in at least the last 10 years. Main references are coming from primer sources such as research reports (include undergraduate thesis, master thesis, and dissertation) or research articles in the journal and/or scientific magazines, especially from our articles. The list of references organized alphabetically and chronologically (suggested to use APA style).

Recommendations for references include all authors (et al., for multiple authors is not acceptable). When preparing your reference list, the following should be avoided: references not cited in the text, excessively referencing your own work, and insufficiently referencing the work of others.
