Guidelines for Author

Article Preparation

The article's main heading should use bold font with Arabic numbering (example 1. Introduction, 2. Method, 3. Result and Discussion, etc.). The subheading should use the italic font, with a numbering of 1.1,1.2, and 1.3.



Title information including:

  1. Article title (maximum of 20 words), write both in English and Indonesian (for Indonesian author only).
  2. Author name and affiliation, mark with superscript numbering 1,2, etc. of different author affiliations.
  3. The corresponding author marked with a superscript asterisk “*”, would be used to mark the email address of the corresponding author, above the all-author affiliation


The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, methodology, main result, and major conclusions. The abstract should not be more than 250 words and should written both in English and Indonesian (for Indonesian authors only).


Provide 3-5 words, alphabetically ordered, using the same language as the abstract. Avoid using multiple concepts and plural terms (e.g. ‘and’, ‘of’). These keywords will be used for the indexing process.


State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.


Provide sufficient material and instrumentation mainly used in the work. Provide details of the research method to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

Result and Discussion

A combination of results and discussion sections used and should be clear and concise. This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.


The study's main conclusions should be presented in a short Conclusions section.


Supporting grants, collaboration, or institutions can be placed in this section.

Appendices / Supplementary data (optional)

Only necessary data can be included in the appendices (print version). Supporting data/information for online publication can be submitted in a separate file of the manuscript.

Math formula

Present a simple formula in the line of 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.


Figure artwork (digital photograph, graph, scheme) should be clear with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Artwork or scheme prepared using MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint should be saved as tiff or JPG to avoid miss layout. Please put the figures inside the manuscript according to the related text, do not place the figures separately at the last of the manuscript.

Figure caption

Ensure each figure has a caption, place below the figure, center alignment, and sentence case, and avoid using uncommon abbreviations. Use the bold font of the figure caption (e.g. Figure 1).

Figure 1. Arrhenius plot conductivity of CGDO1



Use a horizontal border on the table header and last line, without a vertical border. Place the table caption above the table. Footnote (if necessary) should be placed below the table, with a smaller font size than the table font.

Table 1. Example for table



The references used should be a minimum of 80% journal articles and also a minimum of 80% up-to-date references (maximum of 10 years).


Jurnal Kartika Kimia uses the Vancouver style for the citations and references.
