  2. The article should be written in Indonesian, English, or Arabic, typed in RTF or MS Word format, using A4 paper size, with 4-3-3-3 margins, Cambria 12 pt font (except for tables, which should be in 10 pt), Uthman Thaha 16 pt font for Arabic text, 1.15 line spacing, and the length of the article should be between 15-20 pages.
  3. Manuscripts should be submitted through the online submission system of the CANONIA RELIGIA Journal at (click on login/register directly).
  4. All manuscripts submitted to the editorial team will undergo a review process by the CANONIA RELIGIA Journal's editorial team. Accepted manuscripts will be edited by the editorial team without altering the substance of the content.

Structure of Scientific Manuscript Writing

  1. The title should be concise and informative, with capital letters at the beginning of each word and in bold (Capitalize Each Word, Bold, 14 pt) at the center-top of the first page.
  2. The author's name should be written without titles, institutional affiliations, and accompanied by an email address, placed at the bottom of the title (10 pt, 1.0 spacing).
  3. The abstract should be written in two languages: the original language and a foreign language (English or Arabic if the article is written in Indonesian, and Indonesian if the article is written in a foreign language). The abstract should be approximately 150-250 words in length, in Cambria 10 pt font, and should include 3-5 keywords separated by semicolons (;).
  4. The article content should consist of an Introduction (including the problem being addressed, background and problem formulation, research objectives and benefits, a review of relevant previous research related to the topic, and the novelty aspect), Discussion (organized into subsections according to the needs), Conclusion, and References.

Guidelines for Writing Footnotes and References

  1. The article should use the footnote system, without the use of ibid, op.cit, and loc.cit.
  2. For consistency, it is recommended to use Zotero or Mendeley applications for writing footnotes and references from books or online journal citations, following the Chicago Manual of Style.
  3. The reference list should be alphabetically ordered A-Z, following the same writing pattern as footnotes, omitting page numbers and parentheses in publication data, and prioritizing the author's last name (in the case of Arabic names, the "al" is considered nonexistent).
  4. For repeated references, it is sufficient to write the author's last name, three words from the title of the article/book being referenced, and the page number. Example: Mustaqim, "Linguistic Tafsir: A Study...", 10.
  5. In the reference list, if there are two or more works referenced from the same author, display the author's name for subsequent references using a 3-em dash (______).
  6. In accordance with the Library of Congress (LC) transliteration style, Arabic terms should be written using this transliteration style.

Guidelines for Citations

  1. Citations in the discussion should not be overly long.
  2. Direct quotations of less than five lines should be enclosed within quotation marks within the paragraph and italicized.
  3. Direct quotations of five lines or more should be written as a separate paragraph without quotation marks. The citation should be indented from the left margin of the paragraph.
  4. Indirect quotations refer to the summarization and rephrasing of a text in one's own words, which is incorporated as part of the paragraph without quotation marks.
  5. When citing research findings or the opinions of others, it is recommended to use indirect quotations (paraphrase) rather than exact wording.
  6. Quotations from the Quran and Hadith should be written in Arabic script following the original text, including diacritical marks, using the Uthman Thaha 16 Bold font. Quranic verses should be written in full, including the name of the Surah, the verse number, and the range of verses [e.g., Surah Al-Ankabut [29]: 67-69]. Hadiths should be written in full, including the chain of narrators (sanad) and the content (matn), and accompanied by a footnote containing the name of the book, volume, chapter, hadith number, and page.
  7. For specific quotations of verses from the Qur'an that are not complete within a single verse, three dots (ellipsis) are placed before or after the quotation.
  8. Annotations (short explanations) are written within two square brackets [ ... ] immediately after the expression or sentence that is annotated. Annotations that exceed one line are written as footnotes.
  9. Citations from verses of the Qur'an do not require footnotes as the name and number of the surah, as well as the verse number, have already been written within the quoted verse.
