The manuscript has the potential to further scientific growth and features original work.  It is advised that authors verify for resemblance using plagiarism detection tools. Using Turnitin software, editors verify if manuscripts in this publication include any instances of plagiarism. It will be assessed in-office using Turnitin to determine if it has a significant methodological problem and a similarity score, or if it is appropriate for Pena Anda Journal focus and scope.


Content needs to be unique, exhibit the consistency and unity required of scholarly communication, and reflect the integrity anticipated of academic writing in order to make the work both comprehensible and engaging. Before sending in an article, kindly read over the following recommendations. Original manuscripts that are sent in the proper format speed up the review process; those that are not will be returned to the author. Before submitting, one should review the spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, mechanical aspects of the arrangements, length, and consistency of usage in the form and descriptions.


Since this is an electronic journal, papers may differ in length. Your paper's length should be suitable for its subject and purpose. Some papers up to two or three pages in length, as well as longer ones up to forty or fifty pages, may be accepted. Whether the length is appropriate is the crucial question.


Every text must be unique. A manuscript that has been published or is pending consideration by another magazine or journal will not be accepted. However, work that has been significantly expanded and altered, and documented in conference proceedings will be taken into consideration. When a manuscript is submitted, the author attests that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere and has not been previously published.

Handling of Manuscripts

After receipt of each manuscript, an email acknowledgment is sent. The review process is completed as soon as feasible. At least two members of the Editorial Assessment Board will assess the paper; this process typically takes eight weeks or less. The first author or the author assigned to receive correspondence is informed when a decision regarding publishing or rejection is made.

The following sections, in this order, should be included in the manuscripts:
a. Title
English or Indonesian article titles should summarize the major points of the texts, be factual, succinct (no more than 12 words), free of formulae, and instructive.
b. The author's name and author's affiliation name
Whole name, written in capital characters, omitting titles and academic degrees. Groups should include full contact information with their manuscripts. Act information should be added to group manuscripts. The full affiliation address and email address should include the author's name.
c. Abstract
Written in a single, 150–200 word paragraph that is succinctly written in both English and Indonesian and includes background information, research objectives, methods, findings, study conclusion, and your research contributions to science.
e. Keywords
Written in three to five English words, or word groupings, in alphabetical order.
f. Introduction
A brief literature review that directly connects to research or prior findings that need to be developed, an explanation of the context, issues, and significance of the study, and a paragraph outlining the goals of the study are all included. The pure and applied elements of the subject need to be balanced.

g. Methods

Verify if the work can be replicated using the given information. It includes the study's technical data, all clearly presented. As a result, readers can use the methods provided to do research. Specifications for equipment and materials are required. It is necessary to present research methodologies and techniques along with data analysis techniques.

h. Results and Discussion
This part needs to have well-prepared tables and/or figures because they help readers understand the main points. The narrative should no longer duplicate any material found in tables and figures; instead, it should highlight the significance of the study's main conclusions. Journal articles often include three to seven figures and tables. Tables and figures cannot include the same information. The study's goals, research hypotheses, and problem formulation are addressed with the findings. It is strongly advised that the conversation center on the reasons behind and mechanisms by which the research findings can occur, as well as the degree to which the findings can be applied to other pertinent issues.
i. Conclusion
Based on research findings, raised concerns, and research objectives, the conclusion ought to be retracted. The conclusion is given in a single paragraph without the use of numbers. Describe how your research has advanced science.
j. Acknowledgement
Authors who are not listed as contributors should be given credit and a description of their specific work. Every funding source for the project must be recognized, and each one should include the grant number (if relevant) and the research donor.
k. References
The typical citation program (Mendeley/Endnote/Zotero) is used when writing manuscripts. It is necessary to use the American Psychological Association (APA) reference style. When citing a work with two authors, both authors should be listed; however, when there are three or more writers, just the first author is listed, followed by et al., as in the following example: (Handayani 2018)(Handayani Anik 2021) (Laksana et al. 2024). A series of references should be presented in ascending date order (Xiao and Hu, 2019; Anam, et al., 2023). Different publications with the same author(s) and year will be presented separately, as follows 2019a, 2019b.

A minimum of 20% of references for literature reviews can be referenced from research reports and/or papers, with the remaining 80% coming from recent, up-to-date journals that have been published within the last ten years. An illustration of the format and style that should be utilized in the manuscript is as follows:
