    METHODS
    This segment should inform readers of the materials and methods that the authors have used for the research. Please ensure that sufficient information has given to allow for repetition of the research.

    RESULT AND DISCUSSION
    Present the outcome of the study. Use tables and figures whenever appropriate. Results should be able to answer the hypotheses. Interpret the study findings in the context of previous research. The authors should also address the strength and limitations of their study. This section should not be a repetition of the result section. 

    FIGURES AND TABLES
    Relation of Tables or Figures and Text: Because tables and figures supplement the text, all tables and figures should referenced in the text. The author also must explain what the reader should look for when using the table or figure. The reference table and figure use the APA 7th Edition.

    CONCLUSIONS
    Present the main conclusions of the study. This section should also highlight the implication of the findings (e.g., a suggestion for future research, policy suggestions, etc).

    REFERENCE
    All reference results referred to in the article text must use primary references. We will usually expect a minimum of 25 references primarily to journal papers, depending on the length of the paper. The reference uses the APA 7th Edition. Cite references in the text by name and year in parentheses. For references in a non-English language, provide the English translation between square brackets ([ ]) right after the title. Authors are strongly urged to use a reference manager such as MENDELEY, or ZOTERO.
