  2. All Articles published in JPFA are open access and have the CC-BY-NC license. Authors are required to include Statement of Open Access in the submission process of the Article.
  3. The manuscript for JPFA is highly recommended to be sent online by registering in the JPFA's website (http://journal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/jpfa). If you have a problem with the online submission, the Article can be sent to the JPFAs email (jpfa@unesa.ac.id).
  4. The manuscript must be written by at least 2 authors, preferably from different institution and country.

  10. Abstract is in the form of a paragraph, consisting of 300 words (maximum) and written in English. Abstract uses Palatino Linotype, size 10, Italic. The abstract is a concise (short and clear) summary of your work.

Discussion must answers the problems, interprets the research results and the findings into the already known knowledge, confirms and/or contrasts with the research of other researchers, constructs the new theory, and/or modifies the previous theory. Discussion must also contain the implications of both theoretical and implementation results.
  19. Conclusion must be able to answer the research objectives/questions and should not repeat the abstract or simply rewrite the experimental results.
  20. The paragraph is written in justify. Inter-paragraph is given 5 character for left indentation.
  21. The title of the figure uses Palatino Linotype size 11, center alignment, 1 line spacing, and placed at the bottom of the picture. The image file(s) is in .jpg, .bmp, or .png format and must be attached in separate file(s) with the Article.

Footnotes are not allowed.
  26. Any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that may affect the outcome or interpretation of the research should be written down in the manuscript. All sources of financial or non-financial support of research should also be written in the Acknowledgments section.
  27. A reference list is placed at the end of the manuscript, the references are numbered with Arabic numerals and referred in the manuscript by writing the numbers in square brackets, for example: "[1]". The numbering of the references is based on its sequence in the manuscript. An example of writing the references can be seen in the Template.
  28. The article should use at least 80% of the newest references (not more than 10 years) and consists of (at least) 80% article from a scientific journal.
  29. The author(s) may suggest potential peer reviewer for his/her manuscript and also may propose unwanted individual/reviewer to review his/her manuscript, such as due to conflicts of interests.

CITATION STYLE

The article should use at least 25 references with (at least) 80% of the newest references (not more than 10 years) and consist of (at least) 80% articles from a scientific journal (national accredited journal, at least Sinta 3, and/or international indexed journal, i.e. Scopus, WoS, etc.). The references use the numerical system, font size 11, and sorted by a sequence of use in the article. The link or DOI of the cited articles must be given completely (see example numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16, and 17). In citing for the article body, the citation is done using square brackets containing the sequence number of the literature, for example [1], [2], [3], etc.

References writing system adopts Vancouver format (complete guide is provided in JPFA Author Pack). Reference writing is strongly recommended using references manager software (Mendeley, End Note, or Zotero) with citation style: Elsevier Vancouver. The JPFA's citation style in Mendeley can be downloaded in https://csl.mendeley.com/styles/12229861/JPFA-Citation-Style. More information about the installation of JPFA Citation Style in Mendeley can be seen in the JPFA Author Pack. The JPFA Citation Style in other reference management software will be coming soon.
