These instructions are written in a form that satisfies all the formatting requirements for the author's manuscript. Please use them as a template in the Author Guideline.

This section briefly about the issue view in a global and national context, problem statement, purpose of the research, the significance of the study, the structure of the paper and relevant research that has been done. Authors are encouraged to cite the latest and high-impact papers related to the research field. The citation should be presented as a numbering system. For example, if it involved single references, as stated in [1]. If two or more consecutive references are involved: [2-5], otherwise stated in [1], [3] and [20]. Define abbreviations for the first time used in the text, even if they have already been defined in the abstract. Well-known abbreviations such as SI unit (m, kg, s, etc.) do not have to be defined. Consecutive abbreviations should not have spaces: write as “D.A.A.M.”, not “D. A. A. M.”

The title is auto-format. The title must be brief and reflect the contents of the manuscript. Do not use abbreviations in the title unless they are unavoidable. The first letter of the title should be capitalized with the rest in lower case except for proper nouns.

Author name
The * represents the corresponding author. The style for the names is initials then surname, with a comma after all but the last two names, which are separated by ‘and’. The numbering system is used for the author’s current affiliation. Please ensure that affiliations are as full and complete as possible and include the country.

Keywords is auto-format. Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

All the titles of the subsection should be presented justify in Arial Narrow font of size 10-Sentence case as Heading 2 style, while the equation should be presented by using the Microsoft equation of Cambria Math (or MathType) font 10 in justify format. Any source: coding or algorithm will be presented as the Courier New font of size 9 in justify format. This section must describe the methodology in detail: research design, sampling, data collection (if necessary).

Results and Discussion
This section contains interpretation data, summary of findings, limitations, implications and suggestions for future research.

Figure X is bold and end with a full-stop. The figure caption should be located centrally, bottom of the figure.
