Author Guidelines

We encourage you to submit high-quality and original works that have not been published elsewhere, nor are currently under consideration in any other referred journal. You may submit papers that have been presented in conferences only if the papers have been thoroughly revised or extended. A major aim of this journal is to minimize the time for paper processing; therefore, electronic submission of papers using the online editorial system is strongly recommended. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, takes place by e-mail and Open Journal System (OJS), removing the need for a hard-copy paper trail.

The submission is written in Indonesia in accordance with general guidelines. Submit an electronic copy of your paper, along with the originals of illustrations, drawings, and tables using the online editorial system.

Prior to submitting the paper, please download the journal template and follow the instructions given in Paper Preparation Instruction.
