The entire manuscript is given page numbers and line numbers.
  4. The manuscript consists of: title page, abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions, thanks, bibliography, tables, drawings and table / figure description.  
  • Title page: title written in Indonesian and English, author's name (written complete without title), author's address, and running title. Title no more than 20 words and a short title of no more than 6 words. In the title should be avoided the use of words: Study ...., Study ..., Observation ..., Influence ..., or Effect .... The author's address is written complete with department / department or laboratory accompanied by institution / University along with zip code. If the author is more than one, with a different agency address, then behind each name is indexed over the Arabic number. At the bottom of the title page the identity of the corresponding author (responsible for the correspondence correspondence) includes: name and address with phone number, HP, fax and email.
  • Abstracts are written in Indonesian and English, not more than 200 words. Abstracts are written in a single paragraph containing information on the importance or purpose of the research, methods, results and conclusions of the research. Abstract comes with key words sorted by importance no more than 5 words. 
  • Introduction: Introduction contains backgrounds, supporting literature, problem formulation and research objectives.
  • Materials and methods: Materials and methods include experimental design, experimental animals, research procedures, and statistical analyzes used. Materials and research methods should be written clearly and concisely so that the research can be repeated by other researchers. The ingredients or products used are mentioned by source or reference (company name and country, may be accompanied by no catalog). Commercial name inclusion must be accompanied by its generic name. The use of animals in the study should refer to animal welfare guidelines (Helsinki declaration at
  • Results: Results include all the results of research, both in the form of tables and drawings. The written narration contains important information or essence of the table or presented image. Additional data in the form of related videos may be submitted as a support and will only be published online.
  • Discussion: Discussion is written separately from the results. The discussion is not a repetition of the narrative of the results, but is an interpretation and analysis of the data obtained, either by reference, comparing, reinforcing or critiquing previous research results.
  • Conclusions: Conclusions are summarized in a separate paragraph at the end of the discussion and are not a separate subtitle.
  • Acknowledgments are addressed to individuals or institutions that make important contributions to the conduct of research (funders, data source providers, research materials, research facilities and others), but not the author's team. At the end of the authors should include a statement about there is no conflict of interest (conflict of interest) as follows: "The author(s) declares that there is no conflict of interest with the parties involved in this research".
  • References: The references contains all the publication articles referred to in the manuscript follows the APA 7th edition as stated in For convenient formatting, we recomend that authors use a reference manager, such as Mendeley.
