This section may include research plan or research design, research objectives and targets (population and sample), data collection techniques, research models, and analysis techniques.

This section contains the results of data analysis, testing hypotheses, answering research questions, findings, and interpreting findings. The result is the presentation of data that is relevant to the central theme of the study in the form of a description, narrative, numbers, figures / tables, and a tool. Try to avoid long descriptive-narrative presentations and replace them with illustrations in the form of pictures, graphs, photographs, diagrams, maps, etc., and equipped with explanations and legends that are easy to understand. Meanwhile, the discussion is the result of analysis, correlation, and data synthesis or theoretical proof.

The conclusion is a general description that answers the problem and research objectives (not a summary article). Meanwhile, the suggestion is expected to be able to lead to the research result policy.

Bibliography is arranged alphabetically based on the name (surname) of the first author. Every reference listed in the bibliography must be cited in the text, and vice versa, every citation must be included in the bibliography.

The minimum number of citations for the literature is 15. Primary literature from several authors is expected to be more than secondary literature. Primary references consist of accredited and non-accredited scientific journals, published research reports, theses, dissertations, main reference textbooks and statutory regulations; while secondary references consist of textbooks, research reports, printed media, and official websites. Wikipedia, wordpress, and blogspot are not official pages. The number of references listed in the body of the manuscript must match the number of bibliographies at the end of the manuscript. Sources must be published in the last 10 (ten) years.

Literature writing on texts uses a "name-year" system in two forms, for example Hall & Dredge (1991) and (Hall & Dredge, 1991). If more than one literature is mentioned together, the writing is arranged based on the year of publication. For example, (Urry, 1993; Richards & Hall, 2001; Buttler, 2002; Goeldner, 2003; Buhalis, 2004). If there are more than two authors, the first author's name (surname) is followed by et al. However, all author and editor names must be written in full in the Bibliography. Unpublished references should be avoided.
