The introduction contains the background of the problem and the deepening of problems regarding the development of previous research (state of the art) to be compared with current research so that a gap appears between the theory or the results of previous research and the current or expected state. Filling in the gap between the results of previous research and the findings of researchers is the delta which shows the contribution of research results to the development of science and technology. So, clearly define the research problem to be solved. The introductory section may end with one or a number of research questions and end with a statement of research objectives. The introduction is written about 20% of the body of the article including the title and abstract.


The research method contains explanations in the form of paragraphs containing the research approach, subjects or respondents, implementation procedures, use of tools, materials, and instruments, data collection, and analysis techniques, but not in the form of theory. The research method is written brief, concise, and clear, but sufficient so that it can be replicated. Statistical formulas that are commonly used do not need to be written in a script. All specific provisions set by the researcher in order to collect and analyze data are described in the methods section. The method share is written as a maximum of 10% (for qualitative research) or a maximum of 15% (for quantitative research) of the total body of the article.

Results and Discussion 

The results of the research are described first and then followed by a discussion to facilitate understanding and reading. Result subtitles and discussion subtitles are presented separately. The results and discussion sections are written as much as 60% of the total body of the article.


The presentation of the results is written in a simple but clear manner by reporting representative data and not raw data. Results can be presented in the form of tables, graphs, verbal descriptions, or a combination of the three. The tables and graphs presented should be referenced in the text. The way of writing the table and pictures is shown in the Bioedusiana Template.


The discussion contains an explanation of what the results mean and their implications for future studies, with the intention of interpreting and interpreting the results of the research in accordance with the theory used but does not merely explain the findings. Connect the results with the questions asked in the introduction. If there is more than one research objective, then the writer must sort the chronological form in the discussion by making sub-discussions. Show how the author interprets the information gathered during the investigation, how the relationship between facts observed during the investigation and a collection of established theories or knowledge, formulation of new theories, modification of existing theories, and implications of research results. The author is welcome to state his opinion, whether he agrees or even has a different opinion from previously published works. The way of writing articles must pay attention to how to cite the article body, more clear information can be seen at the Bioedusiana Template.


The conclusion is not a summary of the research results but in the form of meaningful substance. The conclusions contain a collection and summarize the most important results and their implications. Align with the statement on the purpose of the study, but do not need a number or bullet system. In this section, you can add suggestions related to the implementation or results of the research, meaning that you don't make it up in making suggestions. In addition, the prospect of developing research results and future research application prospects can be added.


Acknowledgments are addressed to parties who directly contribute to the research, such as sponsors, fund donors, or resource persons and this is not mandatory.


Required to use a reference management application such as Mendeley.
