Author Guidelines

The editor of JLA welcomes article submissions in accordance with the following guidelines:  

  1. Articles have not been published or accepted for publication, or are being considered for publication elsewhere. In addition to the manuscript, a written statement should be attached which clarifies that the article is original and does not contain any elements of plagiarism.
  2. Types of articles suitable for publication include the following; research reports (laboratory, field, archives), conceptual ideas, studies, theory applications. 
  3. Another suitable type of article is a book review.  Please note the following requirements for submitting book reviews:
    • books being reviewed should be newly published (within the last one year for books in Indonesian and two years for books in other foreign languages),
    • book reviews should be between 3–5 pages in length, and
    • a copy/ scan of the book cover should be attached. 
  4. Articles are written preferably in English using academic language along with standard academic writing structure and composition. Manuscripts are typed 1 spaced in a quarto paper size (A4), between 4000–8000 words in length including references, pictures, and tables.
  5. Articles should be in the form of essay which includes:
    • title (10-20 words),
    • Do not write author’s name in any part of the article (JLA has already applied double-blind review in the review process),
    • abstract (150–200 words for each) which includes research problems, methods, and results,
    • keywords (3-5 words),
    • introduction which includes background, a brief literature review study of similar previous studies (there must be a reference to a journal in the last 10 years), novelty statement of the study, problems and/or hypotheses (if any), and objectives, 
    • Research methods,
    • Result/findings and discussion,
    • Conclusion, which is a brief summary of result/findings and discussion. It is strongly recommended to avoid mere repetitive statements from the previous sections, 
    • References.
  6. Reference list format is based on APA (American Psychological Association) style (7th edition). The reference list should appear at the end of the article and includes only literature actually cited in the manuscripts. References are ordered alphabetically and chronologically. We strongly recommend authors to use reference tools, such as MendeleyZoteroEndnoteetc. 
  7. Articles should be submitted in soft files using Microsoft Word application to the Online Submission page.
