This section is written as much as a maximum of 20% of the body of the article.

3. Method

The method section should be written short, concise, clear, but sufficient. He explained that the use of research methods, implementation procedures, tools, materials, or instruments must be explained well, but not in the form of theory. If deemed necessary, there is an attachment regarding the lattice of the instrument or fragments of the material used. If there are statistical formulas used as part of the method, the commonly used formulas do not need to be written.

In addition, the prospect of developing research results and prospects for further research applications in the future can also be added (based on the results and discussion).

6. Thank-you note

This section contains acknowledgments to sponsors, donors of funds, resource persons, or parties who play an important role in carrying out the research.

7. Bibliography
