Keywords are arranged alphabetically, contain three to six words/phrases separated with semicolons (;), and do not end with a dot.



Introduction

The introduction should not exceed 1,000 words, providing comprehensive background information, a review of relevant literature, and highlighting the novelty of your research. It is crucial to elucidate why the addressed issue deserves the attention of DPR RI. Conclude the introduction by presenting research questions in interrogative sentences and outlining the research methodology.


In this context, the methodology assumes paramount significance. It necessitates a clear and explicit explanation of the chosen approach to enable other researchers to replicate the study. This involves specifying the data used in the research, including dates, authors, and titles. Explicitly detail the data collection process and the analytical methods employed. Additionally, justify the rationale behind selecting the chosen methodology. Be sure to elaborate on the data analysis procedures you employ.



Literature Review (written in theory titles)

This section includes the theory to analyze the problem according to the variables stated in the title. The theory should support the author's arguments, with each quote coming from reliable, recent, relevant, and accessible sources. Proper acknowledgment must be given for any ideas presented by others.




Discussion (written with sub-chapter titles)

This is the most crucial part of your manuscript. The discussion should be clear and concise, exploring the importance of your analysis. It should elaborate on the research results (reasons, relationships, etc.) and compare them with the research outlined in the introduction/literature review.

If your manuscript includes figures, graphs, images, and tables, follow the guidelines provided for each.

  • Figures, graphs, images. Figures/graphs/images are preferably in black and white; if they are in color, they must be clear and legible. Captions should be numbered with Arial 11 pt font and single spacing. Titles should include a brief title (not on the image itself) and an illustrative description.
  • Table. Tables are assigned consecutive numbers based on their appearance in the manuscript. Place table footnotes directly below the table and designate them with small superscript letters. Avoid using vertical lines. Ensure that the use of tables is necessary, and confirm that the data presented in the tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the manuscript.
  • Formulas If there are mathematical formulas or equations in the manuscript, you can use the Microsoft Equation Editor or MathType feature. Place the formula indented like a new paragraph (5 spaces in). At the end of the formula, ellipses (...) are provided, followed by a consecutive formula number. An explanation of the formula, including symbols, is provided after writing the formula.


Conclusion

Provide answers to the research questions. The conclusion should add policy recommendations for DPR RI. Authors must provide suggestions or recommendations for the analyzed object. It should not exceed 500 words.
