Manuscripts can use Indonesian and English. Manuscripts sent/submit in the form of an MS Word file into Open Journal Systems IJHESS. 

Journal writing guidelines IJHESS as follows:

  • Manuscripts were written in A4 (single column), with a margin (margin) of 2.5 cm of each edge, the letter (font) Cambria, large letters (font size) 11 points and spacing 1.5. a maximum of 15 pages in a single article.

  • The title, written in English language word without including the maximum 12 years. The title should be clear, concise and interesting.
  • Abstract writing a maximum of 200 words in Indonesian and English language using Cambria 11 point, spacing 1. Abstract contains: an introduction (1-2 sentences), the purpose of the study (first sentence), materials and methods (3-5 sentences), results in research (3-5 sentences), conclusion (one sentence) made in one (1) paragraph.
  • Keywords: At least 3 words maximum 5 words (capital letters only in the first keyword, separated by commas and does not end in a point on the last keyword)
  • Introduction What is the purpose of the study? Why are you conducting the study? The main section of an article should start with an introductory section which provides more details about the paper’s purposes, motivation, research methods and findings. The introduction should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution. The final part should be put forward preliminary research purposes.
  • Literature Review The literature review represents the theoretical core of an article. In this section, we will discuss the purpose of a literature review. We will also consider how one should go about to find appropriate literature on which to base a literature review and how this information should be managed. Finally, we will answer four questions that first-time researchers often battle with when compiling a literature review
  • Methodology describe the types of research, the location and time of the study, population and sample, sampling techniques, data collection techniques, data analysis, and data presentation. Research using tools and materials, need to write specifications of the equipment and materials used. The qualitative research such as case studies, phenomenology, ethnography, and others, need to add a description of the checking of the validity of the study results. 
  • Results The results section summarizes the data collected for study in the form of descriptive statistics and also reports the results of relevant inferential stastically analysis (e.g., hypothesis tests) conducted on the data. You need to report the results in sufficient detail so that the reader can see which stasticall analyses were conducted and why, and to justify your conclusions. Mention all relevant results, including those that are at odds with the stated hypotheses. contains tables and figures which are equipped with a serial number in order of appearance in the text using Arabic numerals. Table title is written at the top of the table, while the title of the picture is written at the bottom of the image by using Cambria font 11, Bold, spacing 1. The table presented without vertical/column lines. Fill in the table is typed in Cambria font 11, spaced 1.
  • Discussion In many ways, is the most important section in an article. Because it is the last thing a reader sees, it can have a major impact on the reader’s perceptions of the article and of the research conducted. Different authors take different approaches when writing the discussion section. the discussion section should: Restate the study’s main purpose, Reaffirm the importance of the study be restating its main contributions, Summarize the results in relation to each stated research objective or hypothesis without introducing new material, Relate the findings back to the literature and to the results reported by other researches, Provide possible explanations for unexpected or non-significant findings, Discuss the managerial implications of the study, Highlight the main limitations of the study that could influence its internal and external validity, Discuss insightful (i.e., non-obvious) directions or opportunities for future research on the topic. The discussion section should not merely restate the findings reported in the result section or report aditional findings that have not been discussed earlier in the article. The focus should rather be on highlighting the broader implications of the study;s findings and relating these back to prvious research. Make sure that the conclusions you reach follow logically from and are substaintiated by the evidence presented in your study. 
  • Conclusion In this section, author present brief conclusions from the results of research with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers. A conclusion may review the main points of the paper, do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion. Not only do author write down the major flaws and limitations of the study, which can reduce the validity of the writing, thus raising questions from the readers (whether, or in what way), the limits in his studies may have affected the results and conclusions. Limitations require critical judgment and interpretation of their impact. The author should provide the answer to the question: is this a problem with error, method, validity, and or otherwise? Writing an academic article is a challening, but very fulfilling, endeavor. Hopefully the guidelines presented here will enable you to write your first academic article with relative ease. Students, however, often underestimate the time required to produce a “poished” first effort. You cannot write a proper research article in a weeekend or even in aweek. It is, therefore, extremely important to allow yourself enough time –at least three to four weeks—to work on the successive draft.
  • Bibliography Vancouver is written according to the rules of writing. All references used in writing in the bibliography be numbered in accordance with the appearance of the article, not alphabetically. Include only used and relevant literature. Referral source at least 80% in the form of literature published 10 years. Referral source in the form of a journal of articles at least 60% of the total bibliography. References used are the primary source in the form of research articles in journals or research reports, books or articles that are linked from the official source. To maintain the consistency of the way of reference, quoting and writing a bibliography we suggest using standard reference applications such as Endnote, Mendeley, Zotero, RefWorks or Colwiz.
