Article Organization The body of articles should be organized (at least) into the IMRaD structure as follow;

  • Introduction contains the background, rationale, and or urgency of the research. References (relevant literature or research), need to be included in this section, in relation to the justification of the urgency of the research, the emergence of research problems, alternative solutions, and the solutions chosen. The way in which the source is written in the text needs to clearly indicate the name of the author and the citation of the source, in the form of the year of publication and the page where the manuscript is located. An example is: ........ research results show that more than 70% of students are not able to recognize authentic problems..... (Retnawati, 2014, p.6). The degree of up-to-date material referred to by looking at the proportion of the last 5 years and referring to the primary library. Problems and objectives, as well as the use of the research are written in a narrative manner in paragraphs, no need to be given a special subtitle. Likewise, operational definitions, if deemed necessary, are also written in a narrative. The introduction is written in TNR-10 upright, with a space of 1. Each paragraph begins with a word that indents into 5 digits, or about 1 cm from the left edge of each column.
  • Methods contains the type of research, time and place of research, targets/targets, research subjects, procedures, instruments and data analysis techniques and other matters related to the research method. targets/targets, research subjects, procedures, data and instruments, and data collection techniques, as well as data analysis techniques and other matters related to the research method can be written in sub-sections, with sub-sub-headings. Sub-subheadings do not need to be notated, but written in lowercase starting with a capital letter, TNR-10 unbold, left aligned. Especially for qualitative research, the time and place of the research need to be clearly stated (for quantitative research, it is also necessary). The research target/subject (for qualitative research) or sample-population (for quantitative research) needs to be clearly described in this section. It is also necessary to write down the technique of obtaining the subject (qualitative research) and or the sampling technique (quantitative research). Procedures need to be broken down by type his research. How the research is carried out and the data will be obtained, needs to be described in this section. For experimental research, the type of experimental design used should be listed in this section. Types of data, how the data is collected, with which instrument the data collected, and how it is collected, need to be explained clearly in this section. How to interpret the data obtained, in relation to the problems and research objectives, needs to be explained clearly. (Note: Sub-sections can be different, according to the type or research approach used. If there are procedures or steps that are sequential in nature, they can be notated (numbers or letters) according to their position).
  • Results and discussions. Write results in logical sequence. Results with important findings should be present first. When presenting results in a table or figure, do not repeat all those contents in the text. Present only the summary of the text. Describe only new and important aspects of the study. Do not repeat all information from results section or any section above. Present limitations of the study. Write the issues that are new or unsolved, for future research. This section consists of the information on What/How the presented data were produced, no raw data should be present in the article. The produced data are presented in tables, or figures with an explanation of what is the result/findings from the work. The section will also need to address connections between findings and basic concepts or hypothesis made earlier. Authors should also express whether any arguments were needed relating to other works from other researchers. Write implications made by the work related to theoretical or applications.
  • Conclusions. The conclusion should be linked to the title and objectives of the study. Do not make statements not adequately supported by your findings. Write the improvements made to physics education in general. Do not make further discussions, repeat the abstract, nor only list the results of research results. Do not use bulleted points, use paragraphed sentences instead. maximum 100 word.
  • Biographies and Acknowledgments Those who contribute but do not meet all criteria for authorship should not be listed as authors, but they should be acknowledged at the end of the text. Only the names of the persons but not their role should be written under acknowledgement section. Authors must declare all sources of external research funding in their article and a statement to this effect should appear in the Acknowledgements section. Authors who wish to include these items should save them together in the MS Word file to be uploaded with the submission. If they are to be included, a brief professional biography of 100 words maximum should be supplied for each named author.
  • Symbols and units, numbers
    If symbols are defined in a nomenclature section, symbols and units should be listed in alphabetical order with their definition and dimensions in SI units. Please use the SI set of units as much as possible. Wherever the application domain uses a different set of units widely, please minimize the use of non-standard units or non-standard symbols for those units. As examples, the use of a for the year (annum) is depreciated and the use of y is encouraged instead. Similarly, h should be used for hours instead of hr and t instead of ton or tonne. It is important to take care of the case in which them measurement units are typed. E.g. Km does not mean kilometers, but Kelvin-meters.
    When providing numerical values followed by measurement units, please leave a regular space or non-breaking space between each value and the measurement unit. This also includes percentages and degrees Celsius (e.g. 42 % or 35 %, 234 C, 504 K). This rule also applies to the unit for a litre, which is recommended to be capital L. The authors are encouraged to render the numbers according to the International rules, specifying the dot as a decimal separator and the comma as a thousand separator.
  • Equations
    Make sure that placing and numbering of equations are consistent throughout your manuscript.

    Center aligns the equation and put the number of the equation flush-right, using a Right Tab on the right margin. Please reference equations in the text by writing: Eqn. .. (do not use Equation ..) In principle, variables are to be presented in italics.
  • Figures and Tables
    Figures and tables should be originals or sharp prints. Please use the SI set of units as much as possible. Figures and tables should be centered and placed either at the top or at the bottom of the page. Please do not render tables as pictures and please do not use too small font sizes in the illustrations. Please use the following fonts in your illustrations: TNR, Symbol, or use fonts that look similar.
    If your figures and tables are created in a Microsoft Office application (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) then please supply 'as is' in the native format, too. Regardless of the application used other than Microsoft Office, when your electronic artwork is finalized, please 'Save as' or convert the images to one of the following formats (note the resolution requirements for line drawings, halftones, and line/halftone combinations given below):
    • PS (or PDF): Vector drawings, embed all used fonts.
    • TIFF (or JPEG): Color or grayscale photographs (halftones), keep to a minimum of 300 dpi.
    • TIFF (or JPEG): Bitmapped (pure black & white pixels) line drawings, keep to a minimum of 1000 dpi.
    • TIFF (or JPEG): Combinations bitmapped line/half-tone (color or grayscale), keep to a minimum of 500 dpi.
    Set table number and title flush left above table. Horizontal lines should be placed above and below table headings and at the bottom of the table. Vertical lines should be avoided. The title should use TNR-10, with 0 pt before and 6 pt after the paragraph, left-justified at the top of the table. Tables have to be included in the text. If a table is too long to fit one page, the table number and heading should be repeated on the next page before the table is continued. Alternatively the table may be spread over two consecutive pages (first an even numbered, then an odd-numbered page) turned by 90, without repeating the heading.
  • Figure captions
    Fig. 1 Captions should be placed below each illustration, font Book Antiqua, 11 pts. Figures and figure captions should be placed center; two narrow figures may be placed side-by-side.
