Manuscript Style

Manuscripts should be double-spaced, typed using 11 point Arial of equivalent typeface with a margin of 4 cm (1.5 inch) on all four sides.

Request authors to kindly submit your manuscript with continuous line numbers.

The manuscript should be divided into the following sections:

  1. Abstract – A concise and factual abstract which states briefly the purpose of the research, the methodology adopted, the main results, and major conclusions are needed. Usually, abstracts are presented separately from the article, therefore, they need to be able to stand alone. For this reason, references need to be avoided. Besides, Non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should also be avoided, but when essential they need to be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Finally, the abstract need not exceed 200 words, has to be constructed in 1 paragraph, and written in two languages, Indonesian and English.
  2. Keywords – A minimum of 3 keywords and maximum of only 5 words, which are arranged in alphabetical order, and separate by semicolons are allowed.
  3. Introduction – Provides the aim of the investigation and a brief statement of previous relevant work with references.
  4. Materials and Methods – Only new techniques need to be described in detail for reproducibility. Known or published methods must have adequate reference. Relevant modifications should be described.
  5. Results – Clear and concise. Presentation of results with tables and figures may improve its clarity.
  6. Discussion – Explains the significance of the results. Note: Results and Discussion can be separated or combined.
  7. Conclusion – Summary of results interpretation with suggested recommendations. The conclusion should not merely repeat points made in the preceding sections.
  8. Acknowledgement – Should be kept to the absolute minimum

Tables, Graphs, Figures and Photographs

Tables, graphs and figures should be displayed on separate pages in the manuscript after the reference section. Tables and figures should be numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Tables are captioned on top of the table body and place any table notes below the table body with proper indications to the contents in the table body (if needed). Figures are captioned at the bottom of the figures. Scanned or digital photographs should be in high resolution, minimum 300 dpi in the PC format. A maximum of 5 Figures and Tables combined only allowed; hence, be sparing.

Footnotes

Footnotes should be kept to a minimum; in most cases, it will be possible to incorporate the information in the text. If footnotes are used, they should be numbered in the text indicated by superscript numbers and kept as brief as possible.

References

Citation in text

References should be cited in the text by the author. All references in the text must be listed at the end of the paper, with the names of authors arranged alphabetically, and titles of papers given.

Reference style

It is the authors’ responsibility to provide the accurate details of the bibliographic citations. Please ensure that all references cited within the text must also be present in the reference list (and vice versa).

Citation in text:

  1. Single author: the author’s name (without initials) and the year of publication
  2. Two authors: both authors’ names and the year of publication
  3. Three or more authors: first author’s name followed by ‘et al.’ and the year of publication. Citation may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references should be listed chronologically according to the year of publication. Examples: “as demonstrated (Son et al., 1996; Duan and Su, 2005). Son et al. (2000) have recently studied…”

Reference List

All references should be arranged alphabetically by authors’ name, listing all authors, the full title of articles and journals, publisher and year. Please note that journal names are not to be abbreviated. The references in text and in the list of the manuscript should be cross-checked to ensure similarity.
