Author’s address: (Full name of all authors, Affiliations, Country, size 10, Times New Roman)

Corresponding author’s address (Name, E-mail and Phone number, size 10, Times New Roman)

Abstract (size 11, Times New Roman, less than 300 words): The abstract usually contains a concise summary of the paper under investigation, pertinent information on the participants, brief review of methodology, analyses, results and  implications of the study.

Keywords (3-5 keywords, size 10, Times New Roman)

Main body of the paper (Times New Roman, in size of 12):  Sections in this part must be clearly numbered and consisted as follows:

Introduction: provides general information about the main idea, explaining the situation so the reader can make sense of the topic and the claims you make and support.

Problem Statement: state about an area of concern, a condition to be improved upon, a difficulty to be eliminated that exists in scholarly literature, in theory, or in practice that points to the need for meaningful understanding and deliberate investigation.

Methods: The purpose of the section is to provide a detailed description of how the study was conducted.  Authors need to specify their participants and procedures to allow others to duplicate the study.  Think of this section as being a recipe with an exact description for others to follow.

Results and Discussion: This section is to describe what was found after statistically analyzing the data.  Authors typically report results of each hypothesis, in order as they appear to assist your comprehension.  Additional analyses may be described if initial results suggested a new direction.  Tables and figures are often used to convey important information in an organized manner. Also, the Discussion section reviews, interprets, and evaluates the results of the study

Conclusion: The following outline may help you conclude your paper: restate your topic and why it is important, restate your claim, address opposing viewpoints and explain why readers should align with your position, call for action or overview future research possibilities.
