The title must be clear, straightforward, brief and informative which represents the contents of the article, a maximum of 12 words, 20pt font size, boldface and only the first letter of a word is printed in capitals.
The author's name is written clearly without a title. All authors' e-mails are displayed, if the corresponding author is not the first author, an * symbol can be added behind the corresponding author's e-mail.
Abstract [Times New Roman 12, bold]
The contents of the abstract must summarize a summary containing the background, research objectives, methods, findings and main conclusions of the writing. Abstract writing in Indonesian is written left-right aligned, after the abstract in English, with one space and one column. The word "Abstract" as the title is written in Times New Roman 12-point font, bold, left aligned, with the first letter capitalized. Abstract text is written in Times New Roman 12-point font, single spaced, up to approximately 250 words. After the Indonesian abstract, write down the key words of the manuscript, 3 to 6 words/phrases. Then proceed with the main text of the manuscript.
Keywords are written in 3 - 6 words/phrases which should be a subset of the title of the manuscript and separated by commas between words/phrases.
Manuscripts are written with structure; 1. Introduction, 2. Basic Theory (optional) 3. Research Methods (can include analysis, architecture, methods used to solve problems, implementation), 4. Results and Discussion, 5. Conclusion, 6. Acknowledgments (optional) and 7. Reference List.
The contents of the introduction are answers to questions: (1). Background, (2). Brief literature review of related research (3). Reasons for conducting this research and (4). Purpose question. State of the art, gap analysis and noverlity can be seen here. Avoid discussing general literature reviews and definitions.
Describe the preparation method and characterization techniques used. Describe briefly, but remain accurate such as size, volume, replication and machining techniques. For new methods it should be explained in detail so that other researchers can reproduce the experiment. Meanwhile, established methods can be explained by picking references.
Manuscripts are written in A4 paper size with a minimum number of pages of 6 pages excluding the list of references, a maximum of 15 pages, including tables and figures, spacing between paragraphs of 6pt and with reference to the writing procedures as compiled in this paper.
Results and Discussion
The series of research results is based on a logical sequence/arrangement to form a story. The contents show facts/data and do not discuss the results. Can use Tables and Figures but does not describe repeatedly the same data in images, tables and text. To further clarify the description, you can use subtitles.
The discussion is a basic explanation, relationships and generalizations shown by the results. The description answers the research question. If there are doubtful results then present them objectively.
An easy way to create layouts is to use this guide directly. Basically it is recommended not to use numbering (1, 2, 3, a, b, c etc.) in discussing the manuscript, change it into sentences. Avoid using bullets/ordered lists with *, √ and other symbols. Avoid blank sections of the page.
So that the submitted manuscript can be processed immediately by the editor, make sure it has been written properly following the instructions in this guide carefully.
Tables should be numbered in the order of presentation (Table 1, etc.). The table title is written above the table with a center justified position, no bold or color print. The font size used is 10pt for both table titles and table contents. Tables must be referred to and referred to in the text. There are no plumb lines in the table.
Figures are numbered in the order of presentation (Fig. 1, etc.). The title of the image is placed below the image in the center position (center justified). The font used in the image title is 10pt. Images must be referenced and referenced in the text.
Formulas are written clearly using equations with index numbers, explanations of formula variables are written in paragraph form, not item lists.
Program listings and algorithm design are written using Lucida Console font (8pt) with a fixed width
Use the Times New Roman font type throughout the text, with the font size as exemplified in this writing guide. The spacing is single and the contents of the text or manuscript use left-right alignment (justified). Page size is A4 (210 mm x 297 mm). Page margins are 2.54 cm top-down, left and right.
An easy way to write scripts is to write directly in template jurnal.
In the conclusion there should be no references. The conclusion contains the facts obtained, sufficient to answer the problem or research objectives (do not constitute further discussion); State the possible applications, implications and speculations as appropriate. If necessary, provide suggestions for further research. State the conclusion in sentences in the form of paragraphs, not in the form of numbering.
Acknowledgments (if any)
Mention the name of the donor and facility provider who helps.
It is recommended to use Mendeley/Zotero tools for referral management. Everything listed in the bibliography/reference must be referred to/referenced in the manuscript. Minimum 10 primary and recent references (last 10 years). Written in 10pt font size and using the APA 6th edition citation method.
