Introductory section is written clearly that contains an adequate background of the problem, the problem under study, the purpose of the writing, as well as the state of the art of previous research and publications, as proof that the submitted article has originality and has a new contribution to scientific contributions that are important to be published (Teng Berlianty, 2019: 1). The introduction also includes an explanation of the gap analysis and / or urgency of the study compared to previous studies. For this reason, there needs to be a statement of newness from the scientific studies conducted. The statement of novelty is reinforced by the literature review from previous studies. Sources of state of art are recommended from primary sources, namely the relevant journal reference sources and the latest publications both international journals and national journals (La Ode Angga et al. 2019: 2)


Articles sourced from research results, the research method is written as a separate chapter after the Introduction chapter. The research method includes the type of research, approach methods, sources of legal materials and data sources, techniques of collecting legal materials, data collection techniques, and methods of analysis of legal materials and data analysis. For articles on conceptual ideas, it is sufficient to only discuss the method of study approach that is placed at the end of the Introduction chapter.

Example of writing a Research Method.
This paper uses normative legal research methods because the focus of the study departs from the blurring of norms, using the approach: statute approachconceptual approach, and analytical approach. The technique of tracing legal materials uses document study techniques, and analysis of studies using qualitative analysis.


Writing the Results and Discussion section contains the results or research findings (scientific finding), followed by a scientific discussion. The description of the discussion in the Results and Discussion chapter is descriptive, analytical and critical. The description of the discussion must be adjusted to the order of legal issues which are the main elements in the study. The theories included in the theoretical framework must be cited in this chapter. The state of art included in the Introduction Section is also reviewed and elaborated in the Results and Discussion Section. Analysis in the Results and Discussion section can be supported by a Table that is presented horizontally. Table Presentations are supplemented by "Table Title" and "Table Source." Each table is followed by a review and author's comments as part of the analysis of the table presented. In addition to the table, the provisions of the Law or other regulations that are presented are complemented by studies and opinions of the author in strengthening and sharpening the analysis of articles submitted for publication.


The conclusions section in essence contains the essence of the study and at the same time also is the answer to the problems examined in the article. In this regard, the writing of conclusions must be adjusted to the order of the problems being studied and relevant to the research objectives. In the Conclusion section no new discussions or comments from the author can be made. In the conclusion the author's recommendations can be included if any.
