Finally, this section is closed with the statement of problems / research objectives, and novelty of the research.


Theoretical Review

This section begins with outlining grand theory as the fundamental theory covering the research, and next by outlining the theory of each variable applied. This theoretical review will comprise the relationship among variables, relevant research, research framework, and research hypothesis built.

All citations in Theoretical Review must have reference source (name, year), except conclusion made by the author. All citated references have to be listed in Bibliography. Citated references minimum 50% from journals. Those journal were published maximum seven years old.

Other conditions that have to be paid attention by the author are :
