Author Guidelines

The author should follow the guidelines below:

  1. The article should be written in English or Bahasa. The article is written by using Microsoft Word, with Palatino Linotype, and size 10, 1 spacing, 2 cm margins on all sides. Formula and equation are written by Microsoft Equation. A4 paper size, in a single column.
  2. Manuscript Components : (a) Article Title, (b) Author's Name (without title), (c) Author's Affiliate Address, (d) Abstract and Keywords, (e) Introduction, (f) Materials and Methods, (g) Results and Discussion, (H) Conclusions and (i) Bibliography
  3. The manuscript should be prepared using JRKM TEMPLATE.




ARTICLE TITLE: The title of the article should be written briefly and clearly, and must indicate precisely the problem to be elaborated, giving no diverse interpretive opportunities, written entirely in capital letters symmetrically. Article titles should not contain unusual word abbreviations. Put forward the main idea of a new article followed by another explanation.


ABSTRACT: A single paragraph of about 250 words maximum. For research articles, abstracts should give a pertinent overview of the work. We strongly encourage authors to use the following style of structured abstracts, but without headings: (1) Background: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study; (2) Methods: briefly describe the main methods or treatments applied; (3) Results: summarize the article's main findings; (4) Conclusions: indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. The abstract should be an objective representation of the article and it must not contain results that are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions.

Keywords: keyword 1, keyword 2, keyword 3, keyword 4 (List four to ten pertinent keywords specific to the article yet reasonably common within the subject discipline.)

INTRODUCTION: The introduction must contain (in sequence) a general background, previous literature review as the basis of the scientific novelty statement of the article, gap analysis or scientific novelty statement, research problem or hypothesis, problem-solving approach, and the purpose of the review of the article. The format of scientific articles does not allow a literature review as in the research report but is manifested in the form of a previous literature review to show the scientific novelty of the article.


MATERIAL AND METHOD: The Materials and Methods should be described with sufficient details to allow others to replicate and build on the published results. Please note that the publication of your manuscript implies that you must make all materials, data, computer code, and protocols associated with the publication available to readers. Please disclose at the submission stage any restrictions on the availability of materials or information. New methods and protocols should be described in detail, while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited.

Research manuscripts reporting large datasets deposited in a publicly available database should specify where the data have been deposited and provide the relevant accession numbers. If the accession numbers have not yet been obtained at the time of submission, please state that they will be provided during review. They must be provided before publication.

Interventional studies involving animals or humans, and other studies that re-quire ethical approval, must list the authority that provided approval and the corresponding ethical approval code.

RESULT: This section may be divided by subheadings. It should provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation, as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.


DISCUSSION: Write down the scientific findings obtained from the research results that have been done but must be supported by adequate data. The scientific findings referred to here are not the research data results obtained. These scientific findings should be explained scientifically, including: What scientific findings are obtained? Why did it happen? Why is the trend of such variables? All such questions should be explained scientifically, descriptively if necessary, and supported by sufficient scientific basic phenomena. In addition, it should also be compared to the results of other researchers who are almost the same topic. The research results and findings should be able to answer the research hypothesis in the introduction. In this chapter, it is also advisable to write down the implications of both theoretical and implementation results.


CONCLUSIONS: Conclusions simply answer the hypothesis and/or research objectives or scientific findings obtained. The conclusions do not contain the repetition of the results and discussion but rather summarize the findings as expected in the objectives or hypotheses. If necessary, at the end of the conclusion can also be written the things that will be done related to the next idea of the study.


BIBLIOGRAPHY: All references referred to in the text of the article must be registered in the Bibliography. References should contain reference libraries from primary sources (scientific journals) published in the last 10 (ten) years. Each article contains at least 10 (ten) bibliographic references.

References must be numbered in order of appearance in the text (including citations in tables and legends) and listed individually at the end of the manuscript. We recommend preparing the references with a bibliography software package like EndNote, Mendeley, ReferenceManager, or Zotero to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references. Include the digital object identifier (DOI) for all references where available.

  • A copyright transfer agreement. If your manuscript is accepted for publication in the JRKM, you are required to transfer all copyright ownership in the JRKM.
  • An ethics statement. Articles covering the use of human or animal samples in research or human or animal experiments must be accompanied by a letter of approval from the relevant review committee or authorities.
  • Articles where human subjects can be identified in descriptions, photographs, or pedigrees, must be accompanied by a signed statement of informed consent to publish (in print and online) the descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees from each subject who can be identified.
  • Copyright permission. If you have reproduced or adapted material from other copyrighted sources, the letter(s) of permission from the copyright holder(s) to reproduce or adapt the copyrighted sources must be supplied. Otherwise, such material must be removed from your manuscript.

Ethical Approval of Studies and Informed Consent

  • Appropriate institutional review board or ethics committee approval is required for human or animal experimental investigations, and such approval should be stated in the Methods section of the manuscript. For those investigators who do not have formal ethics review committees, the principles outlined in the Declaration of Helsinki should be followed (World Medical Association. Declaration of Helsinki: ethical principles for medical research involving human subjects).
  • For the investigation of human subjects, state explicitly in the methods section of the manuscript that informed consent was obtained from all participating adult subjects and parents or legal guardians for minors or incapacitated adults, together with how informed consent was obtained.
