Writing Guidelines:
The Manuscript is written in the following order:

Write the title briefly (no more than 15 words is recommended) and clearly. The title of the article should be concise, interesting and describe the content of the article.
An abstract is written in English with a single space. The abstract includes a description of the purpose, methods, and results of the research. Abstract written in brief, conscience and written in one paragraph (around 250 words) that summarize important research variables, purpose, and methods (e.g., sample and techniques analysis used), and the answer to the research problem (result). The abstract contains keywords of ideas or basic concepts in the study fields (no more than 6 words). The format should as the following:

Research aims:


Research findings:  

Theoretical contribution/Originality:

Practitioner/Policy implication: (OPTIONAL) 

Research limitation/Implication: (OPTIONAL)


This section contains, at least, the research background, purpose, contributions both theoretical and practical. Use APA 6th style to make a citation.

Literature Review and Hypotheses Development (QUANTITATIVE) or Literature Review (QUALITATIVE)
This section contains theoretical underpinning and literature referenced pertaining to previous research that is related to the topic and also highlighted a research gap. It is highly recommended that the literature referenced is published no more than ten years. Also, it is suggested to prioritize the literature in the following order:  reputable international journals, accredited national journals, national journals, international symposiums, national symposiums, and textbooks. 

For research with hypothesis testing, the hypothesis development is built by supporting theory, previous research, and logical argumentation. After the explanation is formulated, then write your hypothesis in the following format:
H1: write the formulated hypothesis.                                                      

For qualitative research (without hypothesis testing), then presented in this section is a literature review (theory and previous research and argumentation focused on research review). If necessary, research focus could be written in this part in the question form by the following format:

RM:     mention the problem that represents the research focus.
Research Method
This section contains the research design, subject/object/research sample, operational definition, and measurement variable, collecting data technique/instrument, and data analysis also hypothesis testing.
Result and Discussion
This section contains the data characteristic of subject/object/sample/ research respondent, data analysis result, testing instrument and hypothesis (if any), the answer to the research question, findings, and findings interpretation. This section, if possible, can be graphed for each research variable. Furthermore, the descriptive statistic value was presented (e.g., Mean, SD, Maximum, Minimum) with its interpretation. The end of the section showed the hypothesis research result and its discussion completely.
This section presents the research conclusion, implications, limitations, and advice for future research. The implications are practical advice from result research. Research limitations include all aspects that can be considered by researchers to refine future research, while the research advice is a future direction for the next research based on the limitations highlighted.

Acknowledgment (OPTIONAL)
This section is provided for the author to express his gratitude either for the research funders or the other parties who contribute to research realization.

Appendix (OPTIONAL)
Contain the research instrument, questionnaires, experiment scenario, interview question list, and other instruments.
It contains the sources referred to in the manuscript. Please follow APA 6th style. Its recommended for author to write using citation software such as Mendeley, EndNote, Zotero, etc.

JAATB accepts a literature review paper with certain requirements:

  1. Discuss urgent issue problem with potential research issue to overcome the problem emerged.
  2. Provide at least 50 articles from various journals as references.
  3. Written with strong and critical analysis. 
The format of the literature review paper consists of a title, author name(s) and affiliation(s), abstract, introduction, content (including challenges and research opportunity), conclusion, references.
The format for the conceptual framework paper is the same as Research Paper. However, it does not provide data analysis.

The table title is numbered and written at the top of the table with a bold font and centered, accompanied by the source (if any).

Citations in the text written between brackets mentioning the author's last name, year by commas, and page number if necessary.
1)   One citation resource with one to five authors, the last name of authors have to be mentioned: one author: (Syafruddin, 2001); two authors: (Habbe & Hartono, 2000), five authors (Sofyani, Suryanto, Wibowo, Harjanti, & Utami, 2018); more than five authors using et al., for instance: (Boediono et al., 1999); more than one source citation by different authors: (Mardiyah, 2001; Kusumawati, 1999); more than one source citation with the same authors (Djakman, 1998; 2000).
2)   If the references consist of the author with more than one article in the same year, then the citation used the letters a, b, after year. Example: (Joni, 2014a; 2014b) or (Joni, 2014a; David, 2014b).
3)   If the author's name is mentioned in the text, so the name does not need to be mentioned in the citation in parentheses. Correct example: "Alamsyah (1998) states ....". Incorrect example: "Alamsyah (Alamsyah, 1998) states ...."
