Electronic submission reduces processing time and editorial review and reduces delivery time for publication. You should use the ISIHUMOR template to prepare your articles. ISIHUMOR accepts research papers that have not been published and are in the process of being scientifically published elsewhere. Manuscripts are written in English or Indonesian. The main text of the manuscript must be submitted as a Word document (.doc) or Rich Text Format (.rtf). Journal templates can be downloaded on the journal website. The manuscript is well typed in one column on A4 size paper, using Camberia 12 pt. The manuscript contains original work and has the potential to contribute to high scientific progress. Minimum word count of 5000. The manuscript must contain the following sections in sequence:

a. Title
The title must describe the main content of the article, be informative, concise, accurate, unambiguous, specific, not too wordy (only 12-14 words), not contain formulas, and abbreviations that are rarely used. This is your chance to grab the reader's attention. Remember that readers are potential writers who will cite your article. Identify the main issues of the paper. Start with the subject of the paper. Title must be complete. The title describes the research conducted, Cambria, Font size 18, single line spacing, space after 0 pt.
b. Writer's name
Full name without academic degree and title, written in capital letters. Manuscripts written by groups need to be completed with complete contact details using Cambria 11 pt.
c. Affiliate name for each author
Author's name must be accompanied by full affiliation address and use of appropriate email using Cambria 10 pt.

d. Abstract
Abstract consisting of approximately 250 words provides a brief description of the research problem, objectives, methods used, results, and conclusions. 3 to 5 keywords should be written to describe the scope of the research being observed as well as the main terms that underlie the research. These keywords can be single and/or compound words. Cambria, Font size 10, single line spacing, 0 pt after space. Keywords: Written in Indonesian and English, written alphabetically.
e. Introduction
The introduction should be written with single line spacing. The introduction consists of: (1) background, 2) novelty, 3) literature review, 4) research gaps, 5) research aims/objectives, 6) research contribution. This section is written up to 20% of the total part of the article. All reference sources must be listed in the bibliography. According to Armagan (2014), the introductory part consists of the first part of the manuscript, and must be written using the simple present tense. In addition, abbreviations and explanations are included in this section. The main purpose of the introduction is to convey basic information to readers without requiring them to investigate previous publications and to provide clues about the results of this study (references should be selected from recent publications with higher impact factors, traceability, and prestigious source books). To do this, the subject matter of the article must be thoroughly reviewed, and the purpose of the research must be clearly stated immediately after discussing the basic references. This template format is created in MS Word (.doc) which is then saved in Rich Text Format (.rtf) and can be downloaded enabling authors to prepare their manuscripts that meet ISIHUMOR requirements properly.

Specifics (if any) can be described in this section of the method. This section is written up to 10% of the body of the article.
Specifications and types of tools and materials must be written if research has been carried out using these tools and materials. Qualitative research, such as ethnography, case studies, and so on, needs to mention the presence of the researcher, research subjects, and participating informants, as well as the methods used to collect data, research location, research duration, and description of resources. validation of research results. It is suggested that the author avoids organizing the contents of the article into smaller sections than the second subtitle in this section. However, in terms of unavoidable factors, the writing style must follow the “Results and Discussion” section.

g. Results and Discussion
To facilitate the reader, the results and discussion are not separated in writing. The results and discussion must answer the problems and research objectives. The results and discussion subtitles are presented separately. The discussion is the part that has the largest portion in the body of the article, at least 60% of the entire article. The results section contains an explanation of the data analysis. The author can present the research results that have been adjusted to the objectives or problems studied, as well as based on the procedures described in the methods section. Results can be presented in the form of numerical tables, graphs, verbal descriptions, characteristics, statistical analysis, hypothesis testing that has been adjusted to the characteristics of the research. Tables, graphs, or images shouldn't be too long, too large, or too many. Writers should use variations in the presentation of tables, graphics, or verbal descriptions. The tables and graphs presented must be referred to in the text. The way of writing the table is shown in Table 1. The table does not contain vertical lines (perpendicular). The font size for table entries and figures can be reduced. The discussion section is the most important point of the entire research. The discussion is given a portion of 60% of the total writing. The discussion is intended to interpret the research results according to the theory used and not just to explain the findings. The discussion must be enriched by referring to relevant research results that have been published in scientific journals. In addition, the discussion must show new and significant findings from the research conducted. The discussion can be presented in sub-chapters and sub-chapters according to objectives and problems in a systematic manner. To facilitate understanding, the parts that must be included in the results and discussion include:
a. Present findings
b. Comparing the findings with previous research
c. Comparing results and theory
d. Answer what/how is the purpose outlined in the introduction?
h. Conclusion
Conclusions must answer the problem, research objectives and contain recommendations or research implications. The conclusion is not a summary or rewrite of the discussion section.
i. Confession
This section can be written if there are certain parties that need to be known, such as research sponsors. Confessions should be written briefly and clearly. Also, avoid hyperbole.

j. Reference
Citations and references must be written in the APA 6th Edition style compiled using Mendeley as the latest version of the reference software. To improve the quality of articles, we inform you that each paper submitted is a minimum of 30 reference articles from primary sources.

Different publications with the same author and year will be presented separately, as follows 2015a, 2015b. Unpublished data references and personal communications must not appear in the list but must be cited in the text only (e.g. Iswatiningsih 2014, (personal communication); Susetyarini 2014, unpublished data). In the reference list, references must be listed in alphabetical order. Journal names should be abbreviated. Always use the standard abbreviation of the journal name according to ISSN Title Word Abbreviation List ( Approximately 80% of references for literature review must be the latest (up to date) journals published in the last 10 years, but the remaining 20% of references can be cited from research reports and/or articles.
