If using Microsoft software to process the figure, keep all signs and symbols grouped to the figures. Ensure all figures and tables has a caption attached to the figures/tables. A caption should comprise a brief title and a complete description of the figures/tables including all symbols and abbreviations used.

The article is writing on A4 paper size, arranged in 2 columns and 1.15 spaces, using Microsoft Word processing program, Times New Roman font 12, with a left border of 4 cm; up, right, and down 3 cm.

Article Structure

  1. Title

Must be concise and clear (not more than 20 words excluding conjunctions) written in capital letters in Indonesian. The title represents the content of the article, whether informative or not, whether it contains "highlights" of "finding" the content of the article or not. If the article is written in English, then the title of the article must be written in English (translated titles can be inserted in the Abstract section in Indonesian). The title must be informative, which reflects the content, without repetitive elements.


  1. Author’s Identity

The author's name should consist of two words (first and last name), the last name should not be abbreviated, the total minimum of writers are 2 persons, and is written without degree and position. The name of the author's institution should be written in full, not abbreviated, and not informing your cellphone number. We recommend that in writing the author's affiliation, it must be completed with the address of the affiliation, city, province, and country. If the author comes from a different agency, then the Arabic numerals index on the back of each name. The author's address is written under the author's name, including the name of the laboratory, institution, and complete address with telephone/facsimile number and email. Especially for writing the e-mail, it is enough for one author's email (not all), as the corresponding author. Furthermore, the author's status as a lecturer or student, or others does not need to be written on the ownership line of the article. The coding in the author's name (such as 1, a, or another Asterix symbol) also needs attention. If the authors only come from one institution then there is no need to use the code (except only for the corresponding author).

  1. Abstract

The abstract is written in Indonesian (if the article is in English) or English (if the article is in Indonesian) at least 100 words and a maximum of 250 words, Times New Roman font 12, and 1 space in one paragraph. The abstract is equipped with 3-6 words of keywords which are sorted alphabetically. Specific keywords describe the content of the article. Keywords can be single words or phrases. Phrases may be better to be specific. The separator between words/phrases should be a semicolon (;), not a comma (,). The abstract should contain (preferably explicitly): background (if any), the purpose of research/article, research method/study, finding research results and conclusions, there may be implications.


  1. Article Writing Systematics (chapter system) is consistent between articles and among publications. A scientific journal article should not have a "Literature Review" sub-chapter or anything else that is theoretical and definitive. If you need or link a concept/theory, you should write it down directly in the results and discussion.


  1. Introduction

The introduction contains the importance and purpose of the research, as well as the benefits of the research that has been done. The introduction must show supporting reference citations and its writing must be following the rules.


  1. Materials and Methods

Materials and methods are written without material subtitles and method subtitles. Materials and equipment are described with the name of the manufacturer, chemical name, and trade name. The research method is written concisely and is accompanied by an analysis method.

Small and non-main tools (which are common in the lab, such as scissors, measuring cups, pencils) do not need to be written down, but it is enough to write only the main sets of equipment, or the main tools used for analysis and/or characterization, even it is necessary to get to the type and accuracy; Write down in full the research location, the number of respondents, how to process the results of observations or interviews or questionnaires, how to measure performance benchmarks; general methods do not need to be written in detail but simply refer to the reference book. The experimental procedure must be written in the form of a news sentence, not a command sentence.


  1. Results and Discussion

Descriptions of research results are presented clearly and can be assisted by tables, graphs, or pictures. The discussion that is presented should contain the interpretation of the research results and refer to the relevant literature. The analysis carried out must be following the standard of scientific principles, it must be clear what statistical tests are used (if they do use). The Results and Discussion at least contains: (1) (what/how) whether the data presented has been processed (not raw data), set out in the form of a table or image (choose one), and given information that is easy to understand? Write down the findings, but don't discuss the discussion here; (2). (why) in the discussion section, there is a link between the results obtained and the basic concept and/or hypothesis? In some fields of science, it even has to discuss up to the level of study of molecular aspects. The discussion that is made must be supported by real and clear facts, and (3) (what else) is there conformity or contradiction with the results of other people's research? Other things that need to be considered are image quality, proportional size, and high resolution. All figures, tables, etc. must have a written explanation. Selected one data presentation (for example, between tables and graphs). All data in the table or image must be discussed, not only used as a compliment.


  1. Conclusion

Conclusions must answer the aim of the research by referring to the results and discussion. Conclusions are made in the narrative form, not in numbering form, if there are suggestions, they can be continued in the next paragraph.


  1. Acknowledgments

Only listed individuals and institutions which truly assisted the research.


  1. Bibliography

All references in the article must be mentioned in the bibliography. The bibliography must contain references derived from primary sources such as scientific journals (at least 80% of the entire bibliography) within the last 10 years from the date the article was submitted. Each article contains at least 15 references. The bibliography is arranged alphabetically without using serial numbers, journal names are abbreviated following the applicable international regulations. It is highly recommended to use the APA (American Psychological Association) style with a Reference Manager such as Mendeley, EndNote, Zotero, etc. The example of writing a bibliography is as follows below:

  1. How to Cite

A reference citation is done by writing down the name of the primary author and the year of publication. Use connecting words 'and' for 2 authors and 'et al' for 3 or more authors depending on the language of the original article used. Please follow the article template provided.

  • Writing the name of the author in the body of the writing: only includes the family name followed by the year of publication. For example: (Lawrie 2006) at the end of the quote or Lawrie (2006) if at the beginning of the quote.
  • If the author is more than one person, you can write it: for example: (Davison et al. 2008) at the end of the quote or Davison et al. (2008) if at the beginning of the citation.
