Author Guidelines

Carefully read the submission guidelines as follows:

  1. Manuscripts must be written in Indonesian or English in the form of research or conceptual regarding education and learning of history and historical science.
  2. The manuscript must be an original work and has never been published.
  3. The manuscript is written using a format that is in accordance with the provisions of writing the Prabayaksa journal. Typed in 1.15 spaces, 5-15 pages long, A4 paper with margins of 2.5 cm each (top, left, right, and bottom), time new roman typeface size 12.
  4. The source references in the text of the manuscript are written in the APA style. It is highly recommended that authors use reference management systems such as Mendeley, EndNote, and others.
  5. References are expected to be at least 60% sourced from scientific journals published in the last 5 years.

The manuscripts should be arranged in the following order:

This is your chance to grab the reader's attention. Remember that readers are aspiring authors who will cite your article. Identify the main problems of the paper. Start with the topic of the paper. Do not contain abbreviations that are rarely used. The title should be concise, specific, informative, and complete.

Author Name and Affiliation
Write the name of the Author without a professional title and position such as Prof, Dr, Production Manager, etc. Don't abbreviate your last name/family. Always include your First and Last Name (Full Name). Write a clear affiliation of all Authors. Affiliation includes the name of the department/unit, faculty, university name, country, including email address.

Abstracts and Keywords
The abstract must stand alone, meaning that there are no citations in the abstract. The abstract should tell potential readers what you are doing and highlight the key findings. Avoid using technical jargon and uncommon abbreviations. Must be accurate, concise, clear, and specific. Use words that reflect the exact meaning, Abstract should be precise and honest, and summarize the key points of the paper. Please follow the word limit (250 words).

In the Introduction, the Author must state the purpose of the writing at the end of the introductory section. Before the objectives, the Author must provide adequate background, and a very brief literature survey to record the existing solutions/methods, to show which are the best of the previous studies, to show the main limitations of the previous study, to show what was done. You hope to show the scientific benefits or novelty of this paper. Avoid detailed literature surveys or summary results. The introduction should clearly state the purpose of the writing. This should include key references.

The research method should be written down briefly, concisely, and clearly.

Results and Discussion
Results and Discussions are the body or content of the manuscript. The results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize the (scientific) findings rather than provide the data in great detail. The discussion should explore the significance of the research results conceptual, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussions of published literature.

Discussion is the most important part of your article. Here you get the opportunity to expose your data. Make the discussion according to the results, but do not repeat the results. It should often begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings (not the results of experiments). The following components should be discussed in the discussion: How do your results relate to the original question or objective outlined in the Introduction (what) section? Do you provide a scientific interpretation of each of your results or findings presented (why)? Are your results consistent with what other researchers have reported (what else)?

Conclusions should answer the purpose of the study. Describe how your writings/findings advance the field from the current state of knowledge. Without a clear conclusion, reviewers and readers will have difficulty judging the work, and whether or not it is worthy of publication in the journal. Don't redo the Abstract, or just list the results of the experiment. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate the possibilities of application and extension. You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out ongoing experiments.

Manuscript references use the APA (American Psychological Association) format. Please use a reference manager like Mendeley, Endnote, or Zotero to make it easier to create citations.
