This section publishes empirical short articles (5000-10000 words) focusing on issues in research on English language teaching and learning, linguistics and literature. All manuscripts should follow the Linguapedia article template and submitted online at ‘Submission’. Articles must be preceded by an abstract of no more than 200 words. Submission inquiries may be sent to the Managing Editor (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Authors are required to submit their manuscripts electronically by using the Linguapedia online submission and review website. New authors are required to register first before they can send their manuscript at http://ejurnal.uij.ac.id/index.php/LIN/OnlineSubmission. Existing authors can submit their manuscript after logging in to the website. Any questions related to the online submission can be emailed to email@example.com.
Submission of a manuscript implies that the paper is the author(s)’ own work which has not been previously published, nor is it under consideration for publication elsewhere and that if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in English or in other languages. To verify originality, your article will be checked using the originality detection service Turnitin.

Use only those abbreviations that are firmly established in the field.
Introduction should clearly state the purpose of the paper. It includes review of related literature and research purpose in essay style. The introduction should include key references to appropriate work. It states the significant contribution of the research. The introduction should consist of the background of the study, research contexts, literary review, research problem(s) and research objective (at the end of introduction). The introduction should show the scientific merit or novelty of the paper. All introductions should be presented in the forms of paragraphs, not pointers, and with the proportion of 15-20% of the whole article length.

This section discusses the methodology. It is the subheading level one. The method section consists of description concerning the research design, the population and sample or the subjects of the research, data sources, data collection, and data analysis with the proportion of 10-15% of the total article length, all presented in the form of paragraphs.
All text paragraphs should be single spaced, with the first line indented. Double spacing should NOT be used anywhere in the manuscript. Position and style of headings and subheadings should follow this template.

It should be written objectively and factually, and without expressing personal opinion. It includes numbers, tables, and figures (e.g., charts and graphs).
This section deals with the research findings. The findings obtained from the research have to be supported by sufficient data. The research results and the discovery must be the answers, or the research hypothesis stated previously in the introduction part. The findings section consists of description of the results of the data analysis to answer the research question(s). The findings should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Please highlight differences between your results or findings and the previous publications by other researchers.. See our Template.
The Discussion section should be a reasoned and justifiable commentary on the importance of your findings. This section states why the problem is important; what larger issues and what propositions are confirmed or disconfirmed by the extrapolation of these findings to such overarching issues.
The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. In discussion, it is the most important section of your article. Here you get the chance to sell your data. Make the discussion corresponding to the results, but do not reiterate the results. Often should begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings. The meanings of the findings should be shown from current theories and references of the area addressed. The following components should be covered in discussion: How do your results relate to the original question or objectives outlined in the Introduction section (what)? Do you provide interpretation scientifically for each of your results or findings presented (why)? Are your results consistent with what other investigators have reported (what else)? Or are there any differences?
This section deals with the conclusion. It is subheading level one. The conclusion section consists of the summary, restatement of the main findings. It should state concisely the most important propositions of the paper as well as the author’s views of the practical implications of the result. Tell how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. Without clear conclusion, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it merits publication in the journal. Do not repeat the Abstract, or just list experimental results. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. You can also suggest future research and point out those that are underway.
Acknowledgment of supporting parties (i.e. sponsors), if any, should be written here. The acknowledgment must be written briefly and clearly, avoid hyperbole acknowledgment.
