Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines (newest version)

  1. The Jurnal Elemen welcomes scientific articles of research or theoretical studies (invited authors) in mathematics education. All submitted papers shall never be published elsewhere and not considered for other publications. The manuscripts are typed with the Microsoft Word program, Times New Roman, 12-point, using A4 paper with 2.5 cm on the top, bottom, left, right borders, and 1.2 spaces.
  2. The manuscripts were submitted online via OJS of Jurnal Elemen through
  3. The manuscript is written in English (since Vol. 8 No. 1).
  4. We recommend preparing the references with a bibliography software package, such as Mendeley, EndNote, ReferenceManager, or Zotero, to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references.
  5. The manuscript should follow the article template (download HERE).
  6. Do not do duplication, fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism.
  7. Please upload the Ethical Statement Letter (download HERE) and proof of similarity check (using TurnitIn or iThenticate) in the Supplementary Files, Step 4 in submission steps. 
  8. The manuscript systematic are the title, Authors' name, Authors' affiliation and email, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, References. 
  9. The title should contain essential variables in the research. It is unnecessary to include the research location unless what is discussed is genuinely unique in that location.
  10. The author's name and affiliation must be written correctly and consistently, both in OJS and in a manuscript. The author's affiliation should be complete: name of department, university, province/state, and country. We recommend that authors use their affiliate email addresses, i.e., [email protected] All authors in the manuscript must be listed/typed in OJS when filling "authors" in the article submission process.
  11. A single paragraph of abstract, about 200-250 words without indentation of the first line with 1.2 spaces and 12-point. We strongly encourage authors to use the following style of structured abstracts, but without heading: (1) Background: place the gap analysis of this study (about 1-2 sentences) and highlight the purposes of the study; (2) Methods: briefly describe the main methods applied, including samples/participants, instruments, collecting data technique, and analyzing data technique; (3) Results: summarizing the article’s main findings, should be in line with the purposes of the study; (4) Implication: briefly describe the impact of your study. The abstract should be an objective representation of the article. It must not contain results that are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions. Should fill both abstract and keywords in the OJS. 
  12. The introduction must be clear and written descriptively. The introduction must contain at least five things, namely (1) issues related to the research, both international and national issues. Try to have sources related to the issue, and it is not allowed to display issues that do not have a clear source; (2) how is the response of researchers related to the issue. Try to have expert opinion related to the issue to strengthen the researcher's argument; (3) how previous research is related to the issues presented. Then, where is the gap between the research conducted and previous studies? The results of previous research must be relevant to the research topic; (4) how the novelty or gap of the research carried out is supported by relevant theories and sourced from primary sources; and (5) how the focus of the study is carried out. Researchers can write the purpose or the research problem descriptively in the last paragraph of this introduction, not using bullets and numbering. 
  13. Methods should be described with sufficient details to allow others to replicate and build on the published results. This section explains the research design used, the reasons for the design, the research procedures applied, the population and research samples or participants, research instruments, data collection techniques, and data analysis techniques. The description should be in the past tense.
  14. The results are presented in a clear and detailed manner. Research results can be presented based on research results at each stage of research or research results that answer each problem formulation or others as long as the results of the research that have been carried out are visible. Research results should be supported by empirical evidence. This section may be divided into subheadings. It should provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation, and the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.
  15. In the Discussion, the authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from previous studies and the working hypotheses, not repeating the explanation in the research results section. The findings and their implications should be discussed in the broadest context possible. May also highlight future research direction. The discussion must also refer to the theory or results of previous research to see whether the research results contradict or support each other with the theory or results of previous research. In addition, in this discussion, the novelty of the research results should be seen compared to previous research.
  16. In this conclusion, the authors must describe the answer to the problem or research question posed. The authors should not explain sentences repeatedly from the previous section. However, the authors must abstract the article's contents related to the answers to the formulation of the problem or research question. In addition, the authors should describe the implication and the limitation of this study. This section is written descriptively, not numbering and bulleted.
  17. References. We recommended preparing the references with a bibliography software package to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references, such as Mendeley, EndNote, ReferenceManager, or Zotero. Include the digital object identifier (DOI) for all references where available. Order the reference list entries alphabetically by author. All references must be in the body of the article and vice versa. The source referred to in the body of the article must be in the reference section. The references used are at least 20 references consisting of a minimum of 80% from journal articles and the rest from other references. References must be up-to-date, at least the last five years, except for the fundamental theories required in writing articles. Authors must also input all references used in the Open Journal System (OJS) Jurnal Elemen when submitting articles. Reference writing and citation follows the rules of APA Style, 7 version, such as the following example:
