Author Guidelines

1. Writing Format

  • The length of each text is limited to 25,000 characters, including spaces, tables, images and references. The following information must be provided on the first page: article title, author's name, scientific degree, full institution address, e-mail address, and abstracts of about 250 words. Abstracts must precede the text and include a brief statement about the problem, research methods, data, and conclusions. In the case of a text commenting on an article previously published in a journal, the abstract must state the topic discussed and the central thesis. Keywords must be written beside abstract.
  • If one of the findings reported in the text has been published elsewhere, or if there is a plan to use one or all of the findings in another manuscript to be published, the author must explain the intent and circumstances at the time of the first submission.
  • Loading numbers (graphs and graphs) can be submitted for review purposes, but numbers must be given in their original source files if the script is accepted for publication - we do not receive scanned numbers.
  • Explanatory notes should be avoided wherever possible and their content must be included in the text. Important notes must be identified by sequential superscripts and listed in the Notes section at the end of the text.
  • The principle of quotations in the text: the name of the author and year of publication in parentheses. References must be quotations from English sources. References written in languages other than English must be translated into English in parentheses. References must be placed at the end of the article in alphabetical order.
  • All texts are reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers, who pay attention to the following aspects of each text: presenting the most important results from empirical research (not all results), qualitative discussion of quantitative data, information about what's new in research presentations and contributions writers for educational sciences, especially Science Education (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics). Received manuscripts are published within six months of receipt.
  • Due to the large number of manuscripts sent to editorial offices from all over the world, we only publish those who receive the most points in the form of reviews, placed on the website.
  • Together with the manuscript, each writer must send a declaration and copyright form, filled out and signed by all authors, which are placed on the journal's website. Only manuscripts that meet the formal and essential requirements of our journal refer to the editorial process.
  • Contributors must be familiar with the scientific problems discussed in the journal (before sending their articles).

2. Author Identity

Before submitting the manuscript, the author must complete:

  • The author's name is written completely without a title
  • Name and full address of the institution
  • Author status or position in the institution
  • Contact person (telephone, e-mail and fax number)

3. Abstract

  • An abstract is a summary of the contents in a scientific article, starting with a brief background, then proceed with the research objectives, research models/approaches, methods of taking and number of samples, instruments and methods of data collection, and methods of data analysis. The abstract closes with research results, conclusions and inferentials/impacts
  • The length of the abstract is a maximum of 250 words, there is no formula, there are no references/references and there are no pictures/tables, using the font Times New Roman with a font size of 10 without bold and italic
  • On the left side of this abstract are written keywords of about 4-7 words, which are the focus and important words in the research
  • The order or arrangement of the sub-activities in the abstract is the same as the sub-activities in the body or contents of the article

4. Writing the Manuscript Body

  • Introduction. The introduction of a scientific work contains the background so that a problem arises and it is necessary or important to do this research as a solution to the problem. The point in this introductory section should be able to find results and conclusions from previous research in the same field, so that the position and importance of current research can be explained. In general, the contents of the introduction of a scientific work include (1) a general description of the issue or research topic, (2) definitions and results of previous research specifically related to the independent variables and dependent variables in the research, (3) field conditions or reality that has been achieved so far (usually based on the results of field observations), and (4) problems are raised and solutions are offered in accordance with the results of previous research and the results of field observations on this research topic. All of these sections do not need to be written under the new subtopic title, but are differentiated based on their respective paragraphs, and each paragraph must have at least 2 sentences. The length of the introductory section is no more than 1 page of HVS A4 paper size, if possible there are at least 12 cited references (APA system) and MAKE SURE every cited reference is in the bibliography, use the font style and font size according to this template, do not use pictures/ data tables or graphs, and everything is written concisely and clearly. Writing source citations in all parts of the article including the introduction using the APA system style. The first paragraph starts aligned to the left, while the next paragraph's first line starts at the fifth beat (character). NOTE in the Introduction as well as in the following sections, you CANNOT use the words WILL, because the research has already been done.
  • Research methodology. In this section contains the Research Approach which must be filled with the research approach and research design. Explain why the approach, method and design were chosen and the explanation is related to the purpose and type of data in this study. The Research participants contain a number of samples and populations used in the research conducted. Explain why the sample was used and whether the number of samples that have been selected meets the provisions or criteria from a statistical aspect. Research Instruments contain all the instruments used in the study. This information includes the origin of the instrument (developed by researchers or adopted), the type of instrument (test or non-test), the form of the instrument (multiple choice test or description, questionnaire, etc.) and the number of question items or questions. If the instrument was developed by the researcher, explain how to do the validity and also how to test the instrument on a limited sample. Data Collection includes information on ways of collecting data. The description of how to collect data is adjusted to the types of instruments used (as previously explained). The description includes when it was carried out, on whom it was carried out (sample), what instrument was used, for what purpose, and who collected the data. Data Analysis contains the methods used for data analysis, including data analyzed, the purpose of the analysis, the formula used and the method analysis.
  • Results and Discussion. In this section, the results and discussion are described in accordance with the research objectives that have been formulated in the introductory section. The Results of Research section contains accurate tables and graphs of research data. The number of subtopics in this section corresponds to the number of research objectives that have been formulated. For example, there are only two research objectives (first objective and second objective), then there are only two subtopics, namely for results and discussion. In general, the Results section only reports the results obtained and there is NO discussion, while the Discussion section only discusses them. The discussion contains an explanation of all the findings in the study, the discussion is also accompanied by supporting theories as well as previous research which is strongly located to support the findings in question.
  • Conclusions. The conclusions of the research are written briefly, narratively, and conceptually which describe the results of the research and how it impacts. The conclusion description includes: answers to the research objectives as formulated in the introductory section, why such results were obtained, and what are the shortcomings or limitations of this research and what are the suggestions for future research. AVOID using numbers or bullets, but written in one or two paragraphs or more according to the number of research objectives. 

5. Tables and Figures

  • The title for the table is written above the table, while the title for the figure is written below the intended image.
  • Tables and figures must be placed close to the text that refers to them.
  • For figures, it's recommended to use figures that have high resolution.
  • Tables and figures may not be included as attachments.

6. Topics

  • Authors who submit the manuscript to the editor, must include the topic of the manuscript in accordance with the scope and policy of the AJSE.
  • Manuscripts that are outside the focus and scope of the AJSE policy will be rejected and will be notified as soon as possible to the authors. 

7. References

  • The manuscript is expected to involve approximately 20-25 primary and up-to-date references to assert high-quality contributions to knowledge development. 
  • References that contain the latest literature are preferred.
  • Preferred references come from research articles that are relevant to the proposed article topic.
  • References consist of at least 80% of the main references and publications of the last 10 years.
