It should be about 150 words (minimum) and 300 words (maximum), followed by three to five keywords related to the article and should appear together with the main body of the article.
6. For research-based articles, the outline used is introduction, method, results and discussion, conclusion, and references.
7. The introduction consists of the background of the study, research contexts, literary review (which can be separated into different sections), and research objective. All introductions should be presented in the form of paragraphs, not pointers, with a proportion of 10-20% of the whole article length.
8. The method already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. This section may also consist of a description concerning the research design, setting, participants, data sources, data collection, and data analysis with a proportion of 10-15% of the total article length, all presented in the form of paragraphs.

The results and discussion section consists of a description of the results of the data analysis to answer the research question(s) and their meanings are seen from current theories and references of the area addressed. In this section, the author(s) may also provide some figures or tables to support the data display. The proportion of this section is 40-60% of the total article length.

12. The references provided should consist of a minimum of 80% sources that have been published within the past decade. The mentioned sources consist of primary sources, including journal articles, books, and research reports, which also include theses and dissertations.
13. If there are more than one appendix, they should be numbered consecutively.
14. The Journal operates a peer review process and promotes blind reviewing. To facilitate this process, authors' names (without academic titles), institutional affiliations, and the email address of the corresponding author should appear only on a detachable cover sheet.
15. Proofs will be sent to the author for correction and should be returned to OJS JELITA: Journal of Education Language Innovation and Applied Linguistics by the deadline given.
