Author Guidelines


Gadjah Mada Journal of Psychology (GamaJoP) uses an online submission platform. This system enables authors to trace the progress of their manuscript submission and speeds up the article’s processing time. For the initial stage, authors must conform to our guidelines (see the manuscript structure. Manuscripts that do not comply with the guideline will be rejected). General Author Guidelines:

TitleTitles should be kept concise, informative, and interesting. Keep the title no more than 14 words.
AffiliationProvide the brief address of each author’s affiliation, including the city and country.
AbstractShould be written in both English and Indonesian. Each abstract is written in a single paragraph with about 100-200 words. Briefly describe the background and objective of the research, results, conclusion, and implication of the research. Do not use abbreviations and citations.
KeywordsInclude 4-5 keywords or phrases, arranged in alphabetical order and separated using semicolons (;). Avoid using terms that are too general or long.
IntroductionThis section should briefly provide information on the background, literature review, state of the originality of the work, hypothesis, and objective. Avoid the use of secondary citations.
MethodsThis segment should inform readers of the materials and method that the authors have used for the research. Please ensure that sufficient information has been given to allow for repetition of the research.
ResultsPresent the outcome of the study. Use tables and figures whenever appropriate. Results should be able to answer the hypotheses.
DiscussionInterpret the study findings in the context of previous research. Authors should also address the strength and limitation of their study. This section should not be a repetition of the result section.
Conclusions and ImplicationsPresent 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).

Authors’ contributionsList each of the authors’ contribution to the research and manuscript. Authorship should be restricted to those who have contributed significantly to the work by either: conceiving of or designing the study, contributing new methods or models, performing research, analyzing data, or writing the paper. All authors should be indicated by their initials. For example, “AKP and GL designed the study. SR, BW, ALD analyzed the data. All authors read and approved the final version of the manuscript”.
Competing InterestDeclare any competing interest (e.g., financial, professional, or personal relationships relevant to the work).

All reference results referred to in the article text must use primary references, up to the last 10 years. The reference uses the APA 6th Edition. Cite references in the text by name and year in parentheses. Examples: Download Guide Citation

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 Zotero, Mendeley, or EndNote to build their bibliography, saving the file in.bib format.
