Instructions on the Writing Structure of the Articles

Instructions on the Writing Structure of the Articles refer to the following conditions: (or download the following: TEMPLATE Al Fikra)

Abstract. The abstract includes mainly : (1) Research purposes (2) Research Design (3) Problem Solving/Finding (4) Conclution.

Introduction. The introduction includes mainly: (1) research problems; (2) insights and problem-solving plans; (3) formulation of research objectives; (4) summary of theoretical studies related to the problem under study; and (5) literature review (previous research studies related to the title). In this section, there are sometimes also expectations of research results and benefits. The length of the introduction is around 2-3 pages and typed with 1.15 spaces. For articles that will later be published in the Al Fikra : Jurnal Ilmiah Keislaman, the detailed rules for the article format follow the provisions of the article format in the e-journal.

Research methods. Basically this section explains how the research was carried out. The main material of this section is (1) research design; (2) population and sample (research purposes); (3) data collection techniques and instrument development; (4) and data analysis techniques. For research that uses tools and materials, it is necessary to write the specifications of the tools and materials. Tool specifications describe the sophistication of the tools used while the material specifications describe the types of materials used. For qualitative research such as classroom action research, case studies, and so on, it is necessary to add the presence of researchers, research subjects, informants who helped along with ways to explore research data, location and duration of research as well as a description of checking the validity of research results.

Results and Discussion. The research results presented in this section are "clean" results. Data analysis processes such as statistical calculations and hypothesis testing processes need not be presented. Only the results of the analysis and the results of hypothesis testing need to be reported. Tables and graphs can be used to clarify the presentation of research results verbally. Tables and graphs must be commented on or discussed. For qualitative research, the results section contains detailed sections in the form of sub-topics that are directly related to the research focus and categories. The discussion in the article aims to: (1) answer the problem formulation and research questions; (2) shows how the findings were obtained; (3) interpret/interpret findings; (4) linking research findings to established knowledge structures; and (5) bringing up new theories or modification of existing theories. In answering the formulation of the problem and research questions, the results of the study must be concluded explicitly. Interpretation of findings is carried out using logic and existing theories. Findings in the form of reality in the field are integrated/linked with the results of previous studies or with existing theories. For this purpose, there must be a reference. In bringing up new theories, old theories can be confirmed or rejected, some may need to modify theories from old theories. In an article, sometimes it can not be avoided organizing the writing of research results into "subtitle children".

Conclusions. Conclusions present a summary of the description of the results and discussion, referring to the research objectives. Based on these two points, new ideas are developed which are the essence of the research findings.

References.Terms of reference library:

a. Try to use the latest references (last 10 years)

b. Primary reference sources (journals) of at least 80%.

c. As far as possible reduce self-citation (using self-reference)

d. Reference to the text uses the author's last name and year of publication.

e. If the author is more than two people to seven people, then all

f. All references in the manuscript must be listed in the bibliography.

g. The manuscript accompanied by the author's biodata is sent through the online journal system (ojs) Al Fikra : Jurnal Ilmiah Keislaman website at: http://ejournal.uin-suska.ac.id/index.php/al-fikra/index  or by e-mail to midarelhakim1983@uin-suska.ac.id.

h. The editor has the right to edit the text without changing the content.
