Author Guidelines

The journal, titled "Current STEAM and Education Research," presents articles that cover a wide range of topics, including innovations in science and technology, recent developments in engineering, creative explorations in the arts, mathematical problem-solving, as well as research and development in the field of education. The articles in this journal also support an educational approach centered on students and emphasize the application of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) concepts in the learning process. This journal serves as a valuable resource for practitioners, policymakers, and academics who are interested in gaining insights across various fields of knowledge and understanding ways to improve education and society through research and development. 

The article consists of:

  • Title: specific and effective, no more than 20 words.
  • Author’s identity: Author’s full names (without degree), institutional address (including name institution, address, postal code, city, and country), and author’s email must write fully and clearly.
  • Abstract: it is written in a paragraph which consists of 150-250 words. Abstract is written sequentially from background of the study, objective of the study, methods, results, and conclusion.
  • The keywords must be included on the same page as abstract. It consists of 3-5 keywords which are chosen genuinely so that reflect the concept of article.
  • Introduction: serves the purpose of leading the reader from a general subject area to a particular field of research. It establishes the context of the research being conducted by summarizing current understanding and background information about the topic, stating the purpose of the work in the form of the hypothesis, question, or research problem, briefly explaining your rationale, methodological approach, highlighting the potential outcomes your study can reveal, and describing the remaining structure of the paper. By introducing and reviewing key sources of prior research in that area to show where gaps exist or where prior research has been inadequate in addressing the research problem.
  • Figure Caption. Example writing “Figure 1,” which is the label must be written in bold type. If the image has a lot of parts, you can use the label (a), (b), and so on. 
  • Table Caption. Example writing “Table 1,” is the label for table must be written in bold type. Table captions are placed above the middle of the table.
  • Equations should be placed in the middle with his right equation number (flush right). Here are tips on writing an equation in accordance with the template CSER:
    • Manually enter the equation, via the MathType
    • Edit the number of equations.
    • Before you manually enter the equation or edit the number of equations please install the MathType.
  • Methods: it discusses the research design, data collection, data sources such as the population and sample, and data analysis. It is written with sentences in paragraphs, not in sequences using points.
  • Results: it contains the data and information that has been collected. The finding systematically must be supported by charts, tables, figures, or informative illustrations.
  • Discussion: it shows a further explanation for the finding. Compare the finding with another research’s finding and do not repeat what has been written in the finding.
  • Conclusion: it should clearly state the result of correlated objective (and may also be possible with future direction).
  • Reference cited according to APA Style. In writing the citations and references, authors are recommended to use reference management software, such as Mendeley or Zotero. The reference must include 80 % primary sources in the past 10 years. 
  • References: it must be written according to APA Style, with the alphabetics order of references in the bibliography.
