Abstract

The spread of the use of Indonesian language in other parts of the world is increasing. There are about 140 countries that teach Indonesian. It has potentials to be developed into a language of international scientific journals for it has numberless users that continue to grow in line with the growing interest of various international communities to learn Indonesian. Its ability to go hand in hand with the development of science and technology and become a medium for critical thinking, in addition to its grammatical simplicity, is an asset for Indonesian to improve its function as an international language (for scientific journal). The opportunity to become an international language (for scientific journal) is also open since there is no restriction on the number of international languages. Any language, including Indonesian, can become an international language if intralinguistic and extralinguistic factors support it. In this context, extralinguistic factors, especially those related to positive attitudes towards Indonesian language, are a challenge for which in the future the best solution needs to be found
