Introduction  contains the background, problem formulation, activity objectives, and literature review. The author is required to quantitatively present the portrait, profile, and condition of the target audience involved in community service activities. Who can also describe the situation and potential of the area in terms of physical, social, economic, and environmental that are relevant to the activities carried out? Also, explain the potential used as material for community service activities. The author is asked to formulate the problem concretely and clearly in this section. Explain the objectives to be achieved in service activities.

This section is supported by a literature review used to support the concept of service. Authors are required to present a preliminary literature review (references to journal articles and conference proceedings) and up-to-date (references published within the last ten years). A literature review is not limited to theory but also empirical evidence. Enrich this introductory part with efforts that other parties have made. This article is the result of dedication downstream of research results; it can be the results of your research or other researchers.

Method, In the application method section, clearly and concisely describe the methods used to achieve the goals that have been proclaimed in the service activities. The service results must be measurable, and the authors are asked to explain the measuring tools used, both descriptively and qualitatively. Explain how to measure the level of achievement of the success of service activities. The story of triumph can be seen in terms of changes in attitudes, socio-culture, and the economy of the target community.

Results and Discussion Community service is an effort to disseminate science, technology, and art to the community. These activities must provide an added value for the community, both in economic activities, policies, and behavior change (social). Describe that service activities have provided changes to individuals/societies and institutions both in the short and long term.

This section describes how activities are carried out to achieve goals. Explain the indicators of achieving the goals and the benchmarks used to state the success of the service activities carried out. Express the advantages and disadvantages of the external or the main focus of the action if it is seen that it is by the conditions of the community at the location of the activity. Also, explain the difficulty in carrying out activities and production of goods and opportunities for future development. Who can strengthen articles with relevant documentation related to services or goods as outputs or the main focus of activities? Documentation can be in the form of images of the implementation or implementation process, images of product prototypes, tables, graphs, etc.

Conclusion should indicate the results obtained, the advantages and disadvantages, and the possibility of further development.Conclusions can be in paragraphs but should be in the form of points using numbering or bullets.
