Data Sharing

For sharing research data, this journal using Harvard dataverse to preserve research data, if you intend to preserve and sharing your research data for greater impact on global knowledge please pay attention on this instruction:

a. Definition of data that must be shared :

A "minimal dataset" can be defined to consist of the dataset used to reach the conclusions drawn in the manuscript with related metadata and methods, and any additional data required to replicate the reported study findings in their entirety. Include sufficient information for a researcher to understand data, and any citations to data from which the replication set is derived. Core descriptive data, methods, and study results should be included within the main paper, regardless of data deposition. Authors who have datasets too large for sharing via repositories or uploaded files should contact Rechtsidee for advice. (Adapted from PLOS' Data Policy)

b. Guidance on sharing datasets that derive from work involving human participants

Pedagogia : Jurnal Pendidikan recognizes that there are cases where for reasons of privacy, national security and commercial confidentiality the full data cannot be made openly available. In such cases researchers should share their data analysis under the least restrictive terms consistent with legal requirements, and abiding by the research ethics and guidelines of their community. This should include opening up non-sensitive data, summary data, metadata and code; and facilitating access if the owner of the original data grants other researchers permission to use the data. (Adapted from OKF's Open Economics Principles)

c. Guidance on Data Citation

If your research data is deposited at the same time as your manuscript using OJS' article submission form then a Data Citation will automatically be generated by the Harvard Dataverse. However, if your research data is already in a repository then here is the suggested Data Citation format to include when you submit your manuscript:

Author(s), Year, Dataset Title, Global Persistent Identifier, Data Repository or Archive, version and subset.

For more information on Data Citation best practices please review Force11's Data Citation Principles.


Manuscript document submitted to this journal (in one MS Word) should be arranged as follow:


The abstract should be clear, concise, and descriptive. This abstract should provide a brief introduction to the problem, objective of paper, followed by a statement regarding the methodology and a brief summary of results, and implication. Abstracts are written in 10 pt Arial and preferably not more than 250 words. 1space.

1. Introduction

In introduction, authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of introduction section. Before the objective, authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

2. Methods - for Original Research Article only

The written material is the main material used during research. The origin of the material obtained is also written. The chemicals used are given a description of the brand or manufacturer's name.

The written tool is the main tool used during research.

Contains the experimental design used in the study.

Contains step of research implementation and methods of analysis

3. Findings and Discussion - Review Article uses Discussion

The results of the research and discussion are presented clearly. The discussion is accompanied by references. The references used are the last 10 years. Data can be presented in tabular form. Images related to research can be included. An example of a table can be seen in Table 1. An example of a graph can be seen in Figure 1.

Tables and Figures are presented center, as shown below and cited in the manuscript.

Figure 1. Form of microstructure of dye powder using maltodextrin coating material


Table 1. Characteristics of Aloe Vera Jam Due to The Influence of Inulin Concentration and Cooking Time

The discussion 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.

 4. Conclusions

Conclusions are presented briefly and clearly. Conclusions are presented in the form of paragraphs and indicate the implications of the research results.


Recognize those who helped in the research, especially funding supporter of your research. Include individuals who have assisted you in your study: Advisors, Financial supporters, or may other supporter i.e. Proofreaders, Typists, and Suppliers who may have given materials.
