- Academic writing skills are an essential thing that must be mastered by students. This research investigated the weaknesses of postgraduate students of Arabic Language Education (ALE) of the Indonesian University of Education (IUOE) in writing scientific journal articles. This study used a qualitative method with a phenomenological approach. Data were collected through questionnaires distributed to 25 postgraduate students, interviews, and document studies. After conducting the analysis and discussing the data gained, the results showed that 75% of the students found that it was challenging to write scientific journal articles. One of the reasons is that they are not familiar with the differences between scientific journal articles and other scientific papers. Besides, 78% of them have problems with linguistic elements, such as cohesion and coherence, and 63% are not familiar with the ethics of scientific publications in writing journal articles.
