Introduction: What is the purpose of the study? Why are you conducting the survey? The main section of an article should start with an introductory paragraph, which provides more details about the paper's purposes, motivation, research methods, and findings. The introduction should be nontechnical yet precise enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript's contribution (Font: Times New Roman, size: 12, justify and 1.5 spaces).
Methods: The methods section describes the steps followed in the execution of the study and also provides a brief justification for the research methods used (Perry et al., 2003).
The methodology section typically has the following sub-sections:
Participant characteristics (eligibility and exclusion criteria)
Sampling technique (description of the target population, research context, and units of analysis; sampling; and respondent profile)
Ethical Clearance (ethical consideration)
Measures (elternatively: measurement)
Results: The results section summarizes the data collected for the study in descriptive statistics and reports the results of relevant inferential statistical analysis (e.g., hypothesis tests) conducted on the data.

Tables can be presented in black and white or in color; if they are in color, they must be legible. The position of the table must be proportional to the entire body of the text.
Formulas or mathematical formulas must be presented using the equation menu in the word processing application, given sequential numbers and clear explanations.
Discussion: In many ways, it is the most critical section of an article (Feldman, 2004). Because it is the last thing a reader sees, it can significantly impact the reader's perceptions of the article and the research conducted. Different authors take different approaches when writing the discussion section. According to (Feldman, 2004; Perry et al., 2003; Summers, 2001), the discussion section should:
Restate the study's primary purpose.
Reaffirm the importance of the study by restating its main contributions
Summarize the results of each stated research objective or hypothesis without introducing new material
Relate the findings to the literature and the results reported by other researchers
Provide possible explanations for unexpected or non-significant findings
Discuss the managerial implications of the study
Highlight the study's main limitations that could influence its internal and external validity.
Discuss insightful (i.e., non-obvious) directions or opportunities for future research.
Conclusion: In this section, the author presents brief conclusions from the results with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers. A conclusion may review the paper's main points; do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion.
Limitation: Your research will undoubtedly have some limitations, which is normal. However, it is critically important for you to strive to minimize the range of scope of limitations throughout the research process. Also, acknowledge your research limitations honestly in the conclusions chapter.
