Journal Wahana Pendidikan is a National Scientific Journal which contains research articles in the areas of learning process development, practicum, teaching material development, increasing teacher competency, curriculum and school management development. Wahana Pendidikan Journal is published regularly twice a year (January and August).

Script writing uses Indonesian according to EYD and can also use English.  Abstracts are written in Indonesian and English. The manuscript is typed using the Microsoft Word program, Arial Narrow letters, size 12 pt, with 1 space, printed on A4 paper with left margins of 3 cm, top, bottom, right 2.5 cm for 8-15 pages/sheets. Articles are written with the right and left edges aligned (justified), and the indent at the beginning of the paragraph (first line) is 1.25 cm.

Articles are written with the following systematics and conditions.

1.    Title: written concisely, maximum 15 words in size 12 font, and must reflect the substance of the article.

2.    Author's Name: written without title, located below the title; articles originating from group research, all members must be listed using serial numbers.

3.    Author's Institution and Address: write the name of the institution where the author comes from, starting from the university, address and e-mail located below the author's name.

4.    Abstract: The abstract is written in Indonesian and English with Arial Narrow typeface, size 11 pt, single spaced. An abstract is not a combination of several paragraphs, but is a complete and complete summary that describes the content of the article. The abstract explicitly contains the background, research/article objectives, research/study methods, research findings and conclusions, implications (if any). The abstract should provide brief information to the reader about the content of the article. Do not include table numbers, figure numbers, and references in the abstract. The abstract consists of one paragraph with a maximum word count of 200 words.

5.    Keywords: filled with words or terms that reflect the essence of the concept within the scope of the problem which consists of several words/terms and is mentioned in the title/abstract. The maximum number of keywords consists of 5 keywords separated by commas (,). (The selected keywords are easy to read by search engines, such as Google, Scopus, Yahoo, and others, and are arranged alphabetically).

6.    How to cite using the following example: Amam, A. & Noto, M. S. (2019). Title Written in Indonesian. Theorems: Mathematical Theory and Research, x (x), xx-xx.

7.    Body of the article:

The introduction contains the situation, definition, benefits of the object under study, developments in science and other research related to the object of research, weaknesses or limitations of existing science or technology, ways to overcome problems, hypotheses, research objectives, new ideas ( novelty), state of the art / overview of previous research and the impact of the research. The entire introductory section is presented in an integrated manner in the form of paragraphs, with a length of 15-20% of the total length of the article. If the article is written in Indonesian and there are words in a foreign language in the text, then the words are stated in italics.

Research methods must be organized into a story in paragraphs. The sentences used in the research method must be in the past tense, because the research process was carried out in the past. Research methods must be written clearly. The research methods section contains an explanation explaining the method, model, design, subject and location of the research you are working on, research procedures, data sources, data collection techniques, and data analysis that the researcher actually carried out, with a length of 10-15% of the total length of the article. This research methods section outlines the steps for solving the problem. Describe clearly the research procedures carried out. The method chosen is adapted to the type of research. For example, experimental research, research design, population and sample collection and research implementation procedures must be clear. Procedures should be detailed from planning, action implementation, observation, evaluation-reflection, which are recyclable or cyclical in nature.

Results and discussion contain an explanation of the results of the analysis related to the hypothesis or research question. Each research result must be discussed. The discussion contains the meaning of the results and comparison with theories and/or similar research results. The length of the presentation of results and discussion is 40-60% of the length of the article. Data in table form is written in 11 pt size, presentation should use table format as in the template.

Conclusions and suggestions contain research findings in the form of answers to hypotheses or research questions, or in the form of the essence of the results of the discussion. The suggestions put forward are solutions or follow-up to the problems being studied. Conclusions and suggestions are presented in paragraph form. The conclusion section contains a summary of the results achieved and is an answer to the problem formulation. Therefore, conclusions must be aligned with the problem formulation and research objectives. Just like the research objectives, if there is more than one conclusion written then the numbering uses numbers and not bullets.

8.    Acknowledgments: the author's expression to those who have helped in the research activities carried out. These parties, for example, institutions or individuals who have provided scholarships, sponsors, research funds, research facilities and infrastructure. The name of the person who assists in the research must be written complete with the title they hold.

9.    Bibliography: system and method of citing using standard citation applications (for example Mendeley, Refworks, Zotero) so that consistency and accessibility are better maintained. Writing a bibliography needs to refer to APA style. Make sure the reference list only contains sources referred to in the content of the article. The references used are primary sources in the form of indexed international journals, reputable national journals, books, research articles, dissertations, theses, theses, books containing research results and others of a primary nature. The minimum number of referrals is 10. The reference year should be no more than 10 years and cite at least 2 articles that have been published in Wahana Pendidikan Journals.

The procedure for writing a reference list generally includes: (1) last name, (2) comma, (3) first initial, (4) period, (5) year of publication (in brackets), (6) period, (7) book title (Italic), (8) periods, (9) city of publication, (10) colon, (11) publisher's name, and (12) periods, or can follow the following writing rules:

How to refer to the author in the body of the article must state the author's last name, year. Example: (Delima, 2012), or Delima (2012). References to the second author are avoided wherever possible. For example: Noto (Hartono, 2012). Writing the bibliography uses Palatino Linotype 12 pt font with 1 space, written in alphabetical order and the second line indented 1 cm from the first line, with the rules for writing bibliographic sources such as books and scientific periodicals according to the example below.
