  5. Papers should be clear, precise and logical and should not normally exceed 20 pages including abstract and reference lists.
  6. The abstract must be approximately 100-200 words. It describes the research aims, methods, findings, discussion, conclusion, and implication of the study. Below the abstract, authors have to list 3-6 key words.
  7. The Introduction should provide a clear background, statement of the problem or research questions, the relevant literature or theoretical framework of the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of the research. It should be understandable to readers from a broad range of scientific disciplines. In addition, authors can add a section of the theoretical framework separately from the introduction.
  8. In method section, authors have to explain research chronological, including research design and research procedure. The description of the course of research should be supported references, so the explanation can be accepted scientifically.

  10. In the results, authors should explain clearly and concisely what have been found in their research based on the method chosen. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. The table and the figure must be explained in the text.
  11. In the discussion, authors should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. The authors should begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings (not experimental results). Please avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. The discussion is the most important section of your article. You get the chance to sell your data, so you have to make the discussion corresponding to the results, but do not reiterate the results.

A paper published in JTLEE will be considered to retract in the publication if:
