Format of Manuscript

Manuscripts must contain at least the following material: title, author names, affiliation and address, abstract and keyword, introduction, methods, results and discussion, conclusion, funding (optional), and reference.

Title: Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author names: Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. You can add your name between parentheses in your own script behind the English transliteration. 

Affiliation and address: Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names, including department, institution, city, postal code, and country. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.

Abstract and keyword: A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. As per the journal style, the abstract text should not be more than 300 words. Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

Introduction:  In compiling the introduction, the author explains the following matters: 

  • The importance of the field of research being studied,
  • Explains specifically about matters relating to the research conducted that have been studied by other researchers as a basis for information,
  • Explain the need for research understudy to fill the research gaps that have existed,
  • Explain the purpose of the research.

Methods: This method is optional for original research articles. This method is written descriptively and must provide a statement regarding the methodology used in the research. This method, as much as possible, gives an overview to the reader regarding the things that are done in the research, clear, complete, and structured. Highlight the approach to how data is analyzed, not how data is collected. This sub-chapter may also contain model construction which will be discussed in the results and discussion chapter.

Results and discussion: The Results and Discussion may be combined into a single section. The results and discussion present the results obtained briefly and can be supported by illustrations in the form of tables, pictures, or qualitative descriptions. Scientific findings obtained from the results of the research carried out are described in this chapter but must be supported by adequate data. The explanation of the findings in the research must be supported by relevant literature. The author is expected to dare to assess the strengths and weaknesses of research results obtained by comparing the results of research with hypotheses, quality standards, and/or the results of previous or similar research through the inclusion and use of primary reference libraries in the discussion. The discussion must have a clear relationship with important issues contained in the Introduction, be able to fill gaps or gaps that must be answered in the research, and be able to answer the research objectives. The impact of the research conducted should also be described at the end of the discussion.

Equation format: Please submit math equations as editable text and not as images. Present simple formulae in line with normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text). For LaTeX format, ensure that equations are written correctly and carefully. For MS Word format, the use of tools such as Mathtype or other equation editors is recommended.

Figure format: Ensure that each figure has a caption with a sequential number (1,2,3). Ensure that each figure has a caption. Supply captions separately, not attached to the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used. Examples are provided in the IJMA template.

Table format: Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on separate page(s) at the end. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells. Ensure that each table has a caption with a sequential number (1,2,3).

Conclusions: The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section. A statement of conclusions must be made carefully and carefully. In conclusion, the author must only answer the problem and research objectives that have been formulated in the Introduction, and not as a summary of the results of the study. Without clear Conclusions, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it is worthy of publication in continuing.

Funding: A declaration of sources of funding must be provided if appropriate. Authors must state the full official name of the funding body and grant numbers specified. Authors must specify what role, if any, their financial sponsors played in the design, execution, analysis and interpretation of data, or writing of the study. If they played no role this should be stated. The example of funding sources is given as follows:

This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle, WA [grant number zzzz]; and the United States Institutes of Peace [grant number aaaa]

Reference and citation style: Reference are numbered consecutively in arabic numerals in alphabetical order of the author's name and are designed by number in square brackets in the next. For journal references, the standard abbreviations for journal names should be used. They should be listed in a separate sheet at the end of the text material. Examples of citations and reference writing for journal articles can be seen in [1-3], reference types of proceedings seen in [4, 5], reference type of thesis/ dissertation seen in [6,7].  Furthermore, reference to the type of book is seen in [8,9] and references in the form of websites are seen in [10]. Meanwhile [11] shows examples of citations and reference writing in the form of articles in the book (Book Section).
