Journal Content and Online Submission

The author for the Journal of Economics and Business Aseanomics (JEBA) may submit research articles, review papers, and case studies papers. All submissions should be made online at the website by using the “Online Submission" button:

Every new user will need to create an account (user name and password). After logging on to the site authors may make a submission or check the status of the manuscript.

Regardless of the source of the word-processing tool, only electronic MS-Word files can be submitted through the online submission system.


General Guidelines

The material must be original, scientifically accurate, and in good form editorially. The manuscript should be informative, summarizing the basic facts and conclusions, and maintaining a coherence and unity of thought.

The format of headings, tables, figures, citations, references, and other details should follow the APA style as described in the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.


Article Structure



The title should be interesting, informative, and specific according to the substance of the article (max 12 words)-Font Garamond (size 16). Avoid abbreviations, method and formulae where possible.



Abstracts are summaries/extracts of scientific articles (manuscript) consisting of objectives, problem phenomena, data and methods, findings/results of the analysis, conclusions, managerial implications and originality (if any). Maximum of 200 words written in two languages: English and Bahasa Indonesia. (Font Calisto MT; size 10)



Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using Indonesian or British spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.


Introduction (body text Font Garamond size 11)

The introduction explains three essential things in scientific articles, namely the phenomenon of problems, the rationality of research, and the existing research gap so that it can be justified why this research is important to do for the economic and business fields. Beginning with explanations and general data, then the data is increasingly conical to be more specific according to the topic of discussion. The introduction should rely on several key references (around 5-6 recent articles) to support the rationality of this research. The final part of the introduction is particular such as the problem formulation, the objectives and specific benefits of this study.


Literature and Hypothesis

This section discusses studies/reviews of journals, articles, books and other relevant sources. Hypothesis formulation is presented in this section in the form of in-depth elaboration for the hypothesis argument used. The hypothesis developed must be based on standard theory and the results of previous research. It is recommended that each hypothesis be supported by at least 4 major references that you use.


Data and Methods

This section explains the data (population and sample) and the method of measuring research variables (variables description) so that they can easily replicate. In the method section, generally, some models used to analyze the data obtained. Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.



Results should be clear and concise. They were presenting data analysis from the initial data testing process, descriptive analysis to the results and findings resulting from an analysis of statistical and econometric models that have been determined in the research method. The analysis process must be continuous, structured and systematic so that the reader understands well after each step produces the findings then discussed in statistics or econometrics first.



Discussion is a crucial part of a scientific article where an in-depth interpretation of the results or findings of a study. The discussion should involve a dynamic process and comparison with some relevant previous studies based on specific scholarship. Each finding must be discussed carefully in order to produce representative conclusions and following the objectives of the study. This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. 



The conclusion is a summary of the results of the discussion results of research that has been done before. This section is the main idea of the scientific article (main idea). Conclusions are presented in 3-4 paragraphs with the last paragraph of managerial implications. 


Funding (if any)

Please supply all details required by any funding and grant-awarding bodies as Funding in a separate paragraph as follows:

  • For single agency grants:

In the text use the following style examples:

  • This was explained by Allen (2020)" – single author item

  • This was explained in full (Allen, 20206)" – single author item

  • This was Concluded in full (Allen & Santosa, 2020) – two authors 

  • This was discussed in full (Huda et al., 2019)…" – 3 or more authors

  • This was stated in full (P. Allen, 2019; S. Allen, 2020)…" where items have similar author names

  • This was discussed in full (Allen, 2016a, 2016b)…" where two or more items are published in the same year


Web references

As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.
