  1. Reference

The ratio of primary references to other references should be >80% to improve the quality of thoughts and ideas used as a writing framework. The main references are the results of direct research, including articles in scientific journals, proceedings, dissertations, theses, monographs, books, and others. References must be up-to-date with a proportion of >80% being the last 10 years since the study was conducted. It is better to limit the number of libraries that refer to oneself (self-citation), avoiding the use of secondary sources (libraries in libraries) as well as popular books and libraries from the internet whose validity cannot be accounted for. For every library referenced in the manuscript must appear in the bibliography, and vice versa every library that appears in the bibliography must have been referenced in the body of the article. The bibliography reference format follows the Harvard-APA style. This format uses the author's name and year of publication in alphabetical order of appearance by author's name. Publications from the same author and in the same year are written by adding the letters a, b, or c and so on right after the year of publication (both written in the bibliography and citations in the written manuscript).
