The manuscript texts are written in English. Manuscripts in English will be first reviewed by editorial boards. The main text of a manuscript must be submitted as a Word document (.doc) or Rich Text Format (.rtf) file.

The manuscript well-typed in single column on A4 size paper, use 11 pt of Times New Roman. The manuscript contains an original work and have potentially contribute to the highly scientific advancement.

The manuscript should contain the following section in order:

a. Title

c.   Name of affiliation for each author

The author  name should be accompanied by complete affiliation address and corresponding email .

d.   Abstract

Abstract, which comprised of approximately 200 words, provides a brief description of research problems, aims, method used, and results. It emphasizes research results in which writen in single line spacing with left and right margin are 0.5 cm narrower than main text. 3 to 5 keywords must be written to describe the research scope observed as well as the main terms undergirding the research. These keywords can be single and/or combined words.

Key words: Written in English  3-5 words or groups of words, written alphabetically.

e.   Introduction

The introduction comprise of: (1) research problem; (2) insight and problem solve planning; (3) research aims; (4) summary of theoretical studies related to the observed problems. This section could also provides the expected results. The introduction must be written in single line spacing.

This template format was made in MS Word (.doc) which then been saved in Rich Text Format (.rtf) and can be downloaded in http://ejournal.umm.ac.id/index.php/jpbi. It enables the authors to prepare their manuscripts which meet the JPBI conditions properly.

f.    Methods

Basicly, this section describes the way the research was done. The main materials must be written here: (1) research design; (2) population and samples; (3) sample collection techniques and instrumental development; (4) data analysis techniques.

The specification and type of tools and materials must be written in case the researches have been conducted by using them.

The qualitative research, such as classroom action research, case studies, and so forth, need to mention the researcher attendance, research subject, and participated informants, as well as the methods used to explore the data, research location, research duration, and the description of research results validation.

It is suggested that the authors avoid to organize the article content into the smaller parts than second subheading in this section. However, in case of unavoidable factors, the writing style must follow the “Results and Discussion” section.

g.   Results and Discussion

This section is the main part of the research result article in which the “fix” results are served.

The details of qualitative research written in some sub-topics which directly related to the focused category.

The discussion of article aims to: (1) answer the problems and research questions; (2) show the ways the findings obtained; (3) interpret the findings; (4) relate the finding results to the settled-knowledge structure; (5) bring up new theories or modify the exist theories.

Research results must be clearly concluded in answering the research questions. Interpretting the findings should be done by using logics and present theories. The findings in form of facts found in the research fields are integrated to previous researches or present theories. This must be supported by reliable references. In case the researchers bring a new theories, the old theories can be confirmed or rejected, or modify the old theories.

 In some cases, it is unavoidable to organize an article by making sub-headings. Thus, this is the format to write JPBI manuscripts with sub-headings. In this section, there are specific rules which cannot be separated in an articles.

The suggestions, which are arranged based on research discussed-findings, are also written in this part. These should be based on practical activities, new theoretical development, and/or advance research.

i.    Acknowledgement 

This section can be written in case there are certain parties need to be acknowledged, such as research sponsors. The acknowledgement must be written in brief and clear. In addition, avoid the hyperbole acknowledgment.

j.    References

Citation and referencing must be written based on APA style 6th Edition which is organized by using Mendeley software latest version.

Citing an article written by two authors, both of authors  should be mentioned, however, for three and more authors only the first author is mentioned followed by et al., for example:  Husamah and Pantiwati (2015) and Husamah et al. (2017).  A series of references should be presented in ascending alphabetical order (Fatmawati et al., 2011; Hudha et al., 2014; Miharja, 2010). Different publications with  the same author(s) and year will be presented separately, as follows  2015a, 2015b.   References of  unpublished data and personal communication should not appear in the list but should be cited in the text only (e.g., Pantiwati 2014, pers. com. (personal communication);  Susetyarini  2014, unpublished data). In the reference list, the references should be listed in an alphabetical order. Names of journals should be abbreviated. Always use the standard abbreviation of a journal's name according to the ISSN List of Title Word Abbreviations (www.issn.org/2-22661-LTWA-online.php). More or less 80% references  for  literature reviews should  be  the recent (up to date)  journals published in the last 10 years,  but the rest of  20% references  can be  cited from  research reports and or articles.
