Title in English. Abstract should be written in English version. Abstract is a summary that describe content of the manuscript.

The introduction contains the purpose of the article/research that is formulated and presented by a good introduction and avoids detailed references and research result presentations. The introduction should include background, research urgency, and gap analysis with existing research so that it can show the novelty given. The purpose of the research should be clearly seen in the introduction, which is better not to contain tables and figures. The introduction is straightforward.


The methods should include relevant details on the materials and experimental design, and techniques to be repeated. Names of products and manufacturers should be included only if alternate sources are deemed unsatisfactory. Novel experimental should be described in detail. If the previous researcher method is used, please describe that method briefly and describe in detail if you make any modification to the procedure.

Result and Discussion

The results and discussion are written in one unit; the author is not justified based on the results and prior discussion in the form of a new chapter. How to write in the results and discussion is done directly by reviewing directly one by one, the research results obtained with relevant references and prioritizing from primary sources. The study results can be equipped with tables, pictures, and graphics to clarify the presentation of the research results verbally.

The results and discussion should be presented in the same part, clearly and briefly. The discussion part should contain the benefit of the research result, not the repeat result part. The results and discussion part can be written in the same part to avoid extensive quotation. Tables or graphs must present different results. The results of data analysis must be reliable in answering research problems. References to the discussion should not repeat the references in the introduction. Comparisons to the findings of previous studies must be included.


This section contains research results, research findings in the form of answers to research questions, or the state of digest results of the discussion. The conclusion of the research is presented briefly, narrative, and conceptual. The research impact must be stated. This section is presented in paragraph form, not numbering/listing. Just like the second part above, since the first paragraph, the first sentence is also written indented into one tab. Conclusions are presented in one paragraph.

Use italic for variables, bold for vector and matrices, a script for transforms, and san serif for tensors. Use superscripts and subscripts in a superior or inferior position; do not use raised and lowered fonts.


Every table must have a title, and all columns must have headings. Column headings must be arranged so that their relation to the data is clear, and refer to the column below. Footnotes should be indicated by superscript, lowercase letters. Each table must be cited in the text.


Cite each figure in numerical orders in a text. Clearly mark orientation on the figure, if questionable. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. Supply captions separately, not attached to the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used. Indicate latitude and longitude on maps. Color figures, foldouts, pocket maps, etc., can be accommodated, but the author must bear the costs of color for publishing these special features.
