Font type and size for abstract Calisto MT 9pt.

Introduction. In compiling the introduction, the author explains the following matters: (1) the importance of the field of research being researched, (2) explaining specifically matters relating to the research carried out that have been researched by other researchers as a basis for information, (3) explain the need for the research under study to fill existing research gaps, (4) explain the purpose of the research.

Method. The method describes the stages of research carried out in a structured manner to achieve research objectives. The research method must provide complete information about various matters relating to the research process being carried out. The research method describes briefly and concisely the research methods used including the specifications of materials and tools, sampling techniques, measurement procedures, research design, work steps, parameters, and data analysis.

Results and Discussion. The results and discussion present the results obtained briefly and can be supported by illustrations in the form of tables, pictures or qualitative descriptions. The scientific findings obtained from the research results that have been carried out are described in this chapter but must be supported by adequate data. An explanation of the findings in research must be supported by relevant literature. The author is expected to have the courage to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the research results obtained by comparing the research results with hypotheses, quality standards, and/or similar or similar previous research results through the inclusion and use of primary reference literature in the discussion. The discussion must have a clear relationship with the important issues contained in the Introduction, be able to fill gaps or gaps that must be answered in research and be able to answer the research objectives. The impact of the research conducted should also be described at the end of the discussion.

Conclusion. Conclusion statements must be made carefully. In conclusion, the writer must and only answer the problems and research objectives that have been formulated in the Introduction, and not as a summary of the research results. Without a clear conclusion, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it deserves further publication.

Acknowledgments (optional). Include the names of institutions that have contributed to the implementation of the research. Also, include the name of the research funding agency.

Reference. References contain references to the literature used in the manuscript and are written in the format of the surname and year of publication, which are sorted by the first letter of the first author's name. The literature used is prioritized on primary references (journals and patents) that are relevant to the topic under study, maximum from references published in the last 10 years. Avoid excessive self-citations. It is recommended to use a Reference Manager Application such as EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, etc. All citations in the manuscript must be included in the references.
