  4. If the manuscript is written in Indonesian, use the Indonesian equivalent of words for foreign words or terms. If not found, the foreign term is written in italics.
  5. The sections in the text are suggested to contain at least Introduction, Research Methods, Results & Discussions, and Conclusions, additional sections may be added e.g. Acknowledgment;
  6. Images and tables are placed proportionally, and the position is suggested on the top of the page;
  7. Each image must be clear (font size, resolution, and line size must be clearly printed);
  8. Each image should be given a caption;
  9. Each table should be labeled (table caption);
  10. Each equation should be written using the Equation Editor in MS Word or Open Office, MathType is suggested to the author(s). Equations are not allowed to be embedded in the manuscript as images;
  11. References or citations are using IEEE format (numbering). Please read the reference writing guide in the template;
  12. A management reference application, such as Mendeley, Zotero, or Endnote, is suggested to be used by authors when citing a reference and creating the bibliography in the manuscript;

Specific Instructions

The manuscripts must be composed of the following scientific article components (subtitles-in order), as follows:

  1. Article Title: Identify the main issue of the article. Begin with the subject of the article. The title should be accurate, unambiguous, specific, and complete. Do not contain infrequently-used abbreviations.
  2. Final paper only (during copyedit stage, the initial submission should not contain authors' information): Authors' Name and Affiliations: Write Author(s) names without a title and professional positions such as Prof, Dr, Production Manager, etc. Do not abbreviate your last/family name. Always give your First and Last names. Write clear affiliation of all Authors. Affiliation includes the name of the department/unit, (faculty), the name of the university, the address, and the country. Please indicate the Corresponding Author by adding an asterisk (*) in superscript behind the name.  Put an email address for each author, institutional email addresses are mandatory, providing noninstitutional email addresses such as and might cause rejection during the screening stage.
  3. Abstract and Keywords: An abstract should stand alone, which means that there is no citation in the abstract. Consider it the advertisement of your article. The abstract should tell the prospective reader what you did and highlight the key findings. Avoid using technical jargon and uncommon abbreviations. You must be accurate, brief, clear and specific. Use words which reflect the precise meaning. The abstract should be precise and honest. Please follow word limitations (100‐150 words). Keywords are the labels of your manuscript and critical to correct indexing and searching. Therefore the keywords should represent the content and highlight of your article. Use only those abbreviations that are firmly established in the field.
  4. Introduction: In Introduction, Authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of introduction section. Before the objective, Authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous research, to show the main limitation of the previous research, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
  5. Research Methods: The research method describes the stages of research/development undertaken to achieve the objectives/outputs of research.  Each stage is briefly described (eg each step in a paragraph). Also inform the materials/platforms used in the study, including the subjects/materials, the tools/software used, the design or experiment used, and the sampling technique iv available.
  6. Results and Discussion: Results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Please highlight the differences between your results or findings and the previous publications by other researchers.
  7. Conclusions: Conclusions should answer the objectives of the research. Tells how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. 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.
  8. Acknowledgments (Optional): Recognize those who helped in the research, especially funding supporters of your research. Include individuals who have assisted you in your study: Advisors, Financial supporters, or may another supporter, i.e. Proofreaders, Typists, and Suppliers, who may have given materials. Do not acknowledge one of the authors' names.
  9. References: All references referred to in the article text must be listed in the References section. The references are suggested to contain at least 15 (fifteen) references from 80% of primary sources (scientific journals, conference proceedings, research reference books) which are published within 5 (five) years.
