PUBLICATION PROCEDURE

Publication procedure of a paper proceeds through five steps:

  1. Submission
  2. Editorial Screening
  3. Review
  4. Editing
  5. Publication

The author should first register for the journal. Manuscripts of abstract and article should be submitted online. Upon completion of online submission, the author is expected to notify the principal administrator by email at jurnals2ikm@gmail.com or ayuningrum0811@gmail.com.

The manuscript will then proceed through editorial screening, content review, editing, English translation if necessary, and finally publication. 

 

A. GENERAL RULE

The manuscript of abstract and full paper must be written based of original study results. There is no tolerance for plagiarism. The manuscript must be produced from the author's own studies, not the other author's studies, except for systematic review (meta-analysis). The manuscript submitted must have never been published at a national or international journal, or being submitted to the other journals.

B. Title

The author must provide important information under the title of the abstract as follows:

Complete the names of all authors. Please note only authors with significant contributions to the study can be included. No ghost author or gift/guest author is permitted for inclusion as an author.
Name of the affiliated institution for each co-author
Contact correspondence should be provided under the abstract with information as follows:

Complete name of the principal author (principal investigator)
Name and address of the affiliated institution

Association with a sponsor or potential conflict of interest, if any, must be declared at the end of the full paper body text.

All manuscripts must be written in Word (.doc) format with Georgia font type. Left, right, bottom, top margins of the page are 2 cm, 2 cm, 2.5 cm, and 3.3 cm, respectively. Non-English words should be written in italics.

Name of a person (e.g. Drummond M) or a place (e.g. Oxford, UK) need not be written in italics. In the manuscript submitted, the figures and tables must be placed separately from the body text. But the author must indicate and write wherein the text the figure and table will be placed. The author must provide title of the figure at the bottom of the figure, and provide title of the table on its top row.

 

Background: It is comprised of 2-3 sentences that state the background rationale for conducting the study with its research question. The background ends with a sentence that states the aim of the study.

Subjects and Methods: This part comprises study design, study site, target population, sampling technique and size, dependent and independent variables of interest, method of measurement or instrument of variables, as well as method and model of data analysis.

Results: This part reports principal and important findings from data analysis. For a quantitative study, statement on findings of an association or effect of variables, or group difference, must be followed by the supporting relevant summary statistics that are written in bracket. These summary statistics include measure of association (effect) in point estimate, the interval estimate i.e. 95% Confidence Interval, and p value. The p value must be reported in three digit decimal, for example p=0.027. For example: a particular interpretation of an association (OR= 5.67; CI95% 4.44 to 9.23; p=0.027).

Conclusion: This part contains 1-2 sentences of conclusion. It may include policy implication of the findings, i.e. the consequence of the findings to the current policy. The author is not allowed to provide suggestion or recommendation that is beyond his/ her study (e.g. providing recommendation of an intervention based on a study by another researcher).

D. FULL PAPER

A full paper is a complete report from an original study that is written succinctly so that it is suitable for publication in a scientific journal. Authors are encouraged to submit full papers of a study in all branches of epidemiology and public health. Word count must not exceed 6,000 words in length. Keep in mind, this journal prefers the briefer one if it has to publish only one out of two full papers with similar quality. A maximum number of 8 tables and figures may complement the text of the full paper.

This journal accepts full papers of analytic quantitative studies, either experimental or observational. If it is experimental, the use of Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) design will increase the chance of acceptance since it by design provides more valid conclusion than quasi experiment. In addition, this journal accepts full paper of a qualitative study that uses good qualitative methodology.

Full papers must be written with "IMRAD" structure as follows:

Background
Subjects and Method
Results
Discussion

 

E. CITATION

The authors must use Mendeley desktop application system for citation and reference of their article
