  • Jurnal Epidemiologi Kesehatan Komunitas (JEKK) publishes research work in forms : Review articles, research articles and short communications. The journal is published every 2 months (February and August) a year.
  • Research articles present original research and address a clearly stated specific hypothesis or question. Papers should provide novel approaches and new insights into the problem addressed. Research Article should arrange in the following order: abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, acknowledgements, references.
    • The Introduction should provide a brief background to the subject of the paper, explain the importance of the study, and state a precise study question or purpose.
    • The Methods section should describe the study design and methods (including the study setting and dates, patients/participants with inclusion and exclusion criteria, or data sources and how these were selected for the study, patient samples or animal specimens used, explain the laboratory methods followed), and state the statistical procedures employed in the research.
    • The Results section should comprise the study results presented in a logical sequence, supplemented by tables and/or figures. Take care that the text does not repeat data that are presented in tables and/or figures. Only emphasize and summarize the essential features of any interventions, the main outcome measures, and the main results.
    • The Discussion section should be used to emphasize the new and important aspects of the study, placing the results in context with published literature, the implicationsof the findings, and the conclusions that follow from the study results.
    • The Conclusions should only answer the objectives of research. Tells how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. Without clear Conclusions, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it merits publication in the journal. Do not repeat the Abstract, or just list experimental results. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out those that are underway.
