Academic writing and publication are an inseparable part of student and lecturer’s life. For students, academic writing and publication are part of assignments, study completion, and as a provision for experience in entering the world of work, especially if a career is going to be a functional official in the bureaucracy who is actually required to be able to publish the results of their thoughts. Meanwhile, for lecturers, publications, especially in scientific journals, are part of the “tridharma perguruan tinggi” as well as a requirement for promotion according to the provisions of laws and regulations.
