Author Guidlines

Writing Guidelines

To be sure that manuscripts move through the copyediting process please observe the following guidelines:

Title: Title must be clear and informative, and should be written using center alignment and capitalized in each non-proposition word, maximum 14 words.

Authors Name: Must be complete but without any title, accompanied by author and affiliation address. Corresponding author must provide and use an e-mail address unique to themselves and not one that is shared with another author registered or department.

Abstract: Please supply a one-paragraph abstract of up to 250 words for all articles components. This, as you know, is a precise summary of your entire paper, not just your conclusions, and must be able to stand alone, separate from the rest of the paper. Abstract must be provided both in English and Bahasa.

Key WordsShould be provided below the abstract to help with the electronic search (3-5 words)

Structure of the Manuscript Body: Please structure the body of manuscript under heading Introduction, Methods, Result, Discussion, and Conclusion, respectively (if needed, sub headings can be added). Direction for future works can be included in conclusion text. The structure of conceptual (normative) paper can be adjusted following acceptable qualitative-rules in academic arena.  

The Introduction section should explain:

      1. The background to the study
      2. The aims
      3. A summary of the existing literature
      4. The reason why the study was necessary

Acknowledgements: The names of any sponsors of your research, including grant numbers, and/or people you would like to thank, may be included in an acknowledgements section that should appear immediately before your list of references when your paper is accepted for publication.

General Style:

We provided template for authors regarding the writing style of Jurnal Kedokteran : Media Informasi Ilmu Kedokteran dan Kesehatan that can be downloaded in the menu “Template”. General style that must be confirmed by authors is summarized as below:

  1. The suggested limit for paper length is 20-25 pages, which includes figures and tables and no more than 40 pages in total length. References should be single-spaced to conserve manuscript space. Please be sure that your paper is double-spaced and uses a 12-point readable font and 1-inch margins on all sides.
  2. Headings and subheadings are flush with the left-hand margin and the first line of the initial paragraph appearing under each is also left-justified. Other paragraphs in a section are indented.

In subheadings, only each non-proposition word is capitalized.

  1. Do not number sections.
  2. Do not use ampersands (&) unless it is a commonly used expression (e.g., R&D), part of a universally known product (e.g., M&Ms), or included in a company name (e.g., Standard & Poor’s).
  3. Commas appear before the final ‘and’ (also ‘or’) in a series.
  4. Double, rather than single, quotation marks are used.
  5. Percent is spelled out in regular text, but a % sign is used in parenthesized text and figures.
  6. En dashes (–) rather than hyphens (-) are used to denote a range, for example, 1996–2000; pages 124–155.
  7. Em dashes (—) rather than hyphens (--) are used to separate a thought or phrase from the surrounding sentence. The sentence should be able to stand alone if the material separated by em dashes were removed.
  8. Indicate in the text where tables and figures are to appear, for example, ‘Insert Table 1 here.’
  9. Numbers one to nine are spelled out and numbers 10 and above appear as numerals. The exceptions are when numbers refer to ratings, code numbers, or begin a sentence. If a sentence begins with a number, the number must be spelled out. It is usually easier to rephrase the sentence.
  10. Footnotes, rather than endnotes, are incorporated into the text.
  11. Blocks of long quotations are indented and single-spaced.
  12. et al. is always italicized.
  13. Spell out all abbreviations at first use in the body of the article and use abbreviated forms thereafter, for example, return on investment (ROI). If an abbreviated form is used only once, it should be spelled out. This is for the benefit of readers, including students, some of whom may not be familiar with the meanings of all abbreviations.
  14. A zero (0) always appears in numbers less than 1 (e.g., 0.15, not .15). This holds true for tables and figures as well as within the text and footnotes.
  15. Appendices are placed after references. If there is only one Appendix, no number is needed after it (i.e., Appendix 1).

Figures and tables: Please do not incorporate your figures and/or tables into the text of your article other than a separate line, such as ‘Insert Table 1 here,’ where appropriate. Figures and tables should appear at the end of the manuscript after the references section. Do not embed other programs, such as PowerPoint, into the article.

  1. Figure numbers and titles appear centered below the figure, while Table numbers and titles appear centered above the table. Each non-proposition word of a title is capitalized.
  2. In tables and figures, only the first word in column and row titles is capitalized.
  3. Within tables and figures, a zero (0) always appears in numbers less than 1 (e.g., 0.15, not .15).
  4. Table values are to be aligned on the decimal except where values differ widely, such values should be centered (this can, for example, apply to the N, R2, and F values in the final rows of a table).
  5. You may have your figures published in color in electronic version. In printable version, however, the color will be black and white.

Reference and citation style: Jurnal Kedokteran : Media Informasi Ilmu Kedokteran dan Kesehatan uses the author-date style of citation referred from American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines. Citations in the text appear as name, date within parentheses, and listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. When a cited work has three or more authors, all authors should be written out at the first text citation and et al. used thereafter (italicize et al., whenever used). When reference is made to more than one work by the same author(s) published in the same year, identify each citation in the text in the following manner: (Collins, 2005a, 2005b). Online citations should end with the date of access. Please be sure that cited works that are chapters in a book or articles in a magazine include page numbers. References should contain titles and subtitles.

All references must have a corresponding citation in the text and vice versa.
