Author Guidelines


  1. IJoCE publishes scientific studies and research on basic sciences that contribute to the understanding, development of scientific theories and concepts, as well as its application in over the world.
  2. Article must be in English version. The article must be original, in the sense of it has been never considered to publish in another journal. Manuscript has never also been presented in a forum or seminar.
  3. Article are submitted online in the journal site ( All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, takes place by e-mail removing the need for a paper trail.
  4. Referees: Please submit, with the manuscript, the names and addresses of 3 potential referees. This is particularly important when the manuscript deals with a highly specialized subject.
  5. The article received by editor will be distributed to experts/reviewers selected by the editor.

In particular, do not use the word processor's options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns. Note that source files of figures, tables and text graphics will be required whether or not you embed your figures in the text.
  7. Article structure
    1. Subdivision - numbered sections: divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
    2. Introduction: state the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
    3. Research Methods: provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
    4. Results and Analysis: in this section, it is explained the results of research and at the same time is given the comprehensive discussion. Results can be presented in figures, graphs, tables and others that make the reader understand easily. The discussion can be made in several sub-chapters.
    5. 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.
    6. Appendices: if there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
  8. Article should be written systematically following these below rules.
    1. Title: Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
    2. Name of Author: name of author/s is/are located under the tittle; author may be individual or in a team.
    3. Author’s affiliation: Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. 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.
    4. Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.
    5. Abstract: a concise and factual abstract is required. It should written in Indonesia and English ranges from 100-150 words in length. It consists of a single paragraph.

Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either 'Unpublished results' or 'Personal communication'. Citation in text Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication. Web references As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed.

Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list. Reference style Text: Reference entry is arranged in the alphabetical order following APA 7th edition style. All that are referred to in the text must be listed in the reference list and all that are written in the reference list must be referred to in the text. It is advisable to use current journal articles from Web of Science/Scopus indexed journals as reference sources, rather than books or proceedings. The writer is oblidged to list all the references in the valid way according to the original sources and URL (https of the DOI (digital object identifier) when available), particularly for entries from journals. In the case of cities of publication, differences should be made in writing cities of the USA and cities outside the USA. For example, cities in the USA are listed together with the intials of the state; e.g.: for Boston of Massachusset: Boston, MA.
