Author Guidelines

Some Essentials

Academicians who wish to submit empirical research papers to KIAFE must write manuscripts of at least 4800 words, excluding pictures, tables, and references. The manuscript must be written in English or Bahasa Indonesia. Authors should declare that the accepted manuscript is truly theirs and has not been sent elsewhere for publication. The same author can only submit a new manuscript to KIAFE after five editions have passed since the last manuscript was published.

All submitted papers are subjected to a double-blind review process. To facilitate the double-blind peer-review process, each manuscript submitted should be devoid of information about the author(s) and their affiliation.

iThenticate will be used to perform a similarity test on the submitted articles. The tolerance for similarity is approximately 20%.

Conference papers may be considered for publication in KIAFE if they have been completely rewritten and the necessary written permission has been obtained from the copyright owner (if those papers have been published and the publisher holds the right).

General Writing Instructions:

  1. Articles should be typed using Microsoft Office Word (or alike) and saved at least in the form of Microsoft Word 97 - 2003 document formats.
  2. The entire article must be written using Times New Roman letter type, with 11 pt. in size, 1.15 spacing, A4 paper size. Please allow for one spacing between chapters.
  3. Allow top margins of 1.25” (3.17 cm), bottom margins of 1.25” (3.17 cm), left margins of 1.35” (3.43 cm) and right margin 0.95” (2.41 cm).
  4. Tables and pictures should credit the source (if they are taken from other references) and be numbered sequentially.
  5. Title of the table is centered and typed before the table itself using letter type of Times New Roman with size 10 pt. The content of table is written with smaller size letter (Times New Roman with size 10 pt.)
  6. Title of the picture is centered and typed after the picture itself using letter type of Times New Roman with size 11 pt. For authors who provide diagrams or graphs, please make sure that all diagrams and graphs is editable so editor can resize easily to fit the space in the printed version.
  7. Mathematical and statistical formula must be numbered sequentially and be cited properly (if they from other sources). Please use Microsoft Equation to type the formula that can ease the editor for the copy-editing process.
  8. All citations and references have to be listed completely in list of references, and vice versa. Please consider using citation management software, such as Mendeley and Endnote, for ensuring the citation to be well-managed.

Sequences of the Manuscripts

Interested authors should structure their articles based on the following sequences, otherwise KIAFE will return the articles for revision.

  • Title
    Title uses times new roman with size 12 pt. The title is centered and capitalized for each word. Use bold font for the title.
  • Abstract
    The abstract uses times new roman with 9 pt. The abstract is about 150-170 words and it should cover the research problems and objectives, research methods, research findings, contributions, or implications.
  • JEL
    JEL consists of maximum 3 JEL codes. You can see the JEL code on this site 
  • Keywords
    Keywords represent the five most relevant subjects. Keywords are words or phrases that frequently appear in the article and commonly reflect discussion topic.
  • Introduction
    Introduction covers the background of the research issues, indications and research problems, research objectives, originalities of ideas and research contribution. The relevant review of previous research should be well-organized to provide interesting scientific argumentation and attract more readers' curiosity.
  • Theoretical Framework and Empirical Studies
    Literature review cites theories and previous researches that are relevant to the topic of the research. For quantitative research, this section serves as a theoretical synthesis and logical basis for developing research hypotheses and models.
  • Research Methods
    This section describes the theoretical foundations and technical information that is adequate for conducting and reproducing the research well, including details of types of research and the reasons for choosing, nature of collected data and the collection methods, methods of analyzing data, and finally, how to make decisions from the data.
  • Data Analysis and Discussions
    This section elaborates the results of the research completely and is usually followed by the discussion of the newly-obtained results toward the underpinning theories. The discussion can either confirm or reject prevailing theories or generate new theoretical foundations and understanding about the world phenomena from different theoretical standpoints.
  • Conclusion, Suggestion and Limitation
    This section concludes the research results and proposes the theoretical and practical implications. In these sections, authors usually express the limitations of the current study and recommend ideas and improvements for future research.
  • References
    We expect authors to use the primary resources from journal articles in the last ten years. Authors use APA Style (6 Edition) reference system and Mendeley as reference manager.
