Author Guidelines

Introduction (TNR, 12)

JSI accepts research articles from researchers, lecturers, students, and practitioners in English and Indonesian, which have never been published in other media. This envelope-style format is used to maintain consistency in the appearance of the JSI e-Jurnal, so we hope you are willing to write according to our format. For your convenience and efficiency in formatting writing, use this template by copying, downloading, or requesting an email attachment from the editor and then replacing it with the author's material. This template file will contain certain formatting styles.

Full article writing in 10 pages. The order of writing required is as follows; an introduction that contains the issues raised, including the latest theory/literature, underlies the direction of problem-solving, methods used, results, and discussion, and ends with conclusions and/or recommendations. Acknowledgments to those who support are placed at the end. References written in the future must be those referred to throughout the article, and conversely, the literature cited in the article must be stated in the reference list. In the introduction, the author must refer to at least five articles to strengthen the urgency.

The introduction in the last paragraph should explain the novelty, and the purpose of the research carried out. The novelty and purpose must be written at the end of the writing.

Material and Method (TNR, 12)

Briefly describe the research method used. If there is a method that is not commonly used, describe it in detail. The procedures used in research can be described in the form of flow charts, pictures or other diagrams that support

Result and Discussion (TNR, 12)

Results can be expressed in narratives, tabulations, graphs, and/or pictures. Try to make it as concise and comprehensive as possible. The discussion should focus on the results and how these results can answer the issues raised.


Paper Size, Margins, and Columns (TNR, 11)

Manuscripts can be written a maximum number of 10 pages, including pictures and tables. Manuscripts must be written following the template of this article in the form of print-ready (Camera-ready). Articles must be written with A4 writing size (210 x 297 mm) and with the left, right, bottom and top margin formats 2 cm. The manuscript must be written in Constantia type font with a font size of 10pt (except the article title, author's name, sub-chapter title, and abstract title), 1.15 spaces, and in one column format (except the article title section, author's name, and abstract). The distance between columns is 10 mm. Foreign words or terms use italics (Italic). It's best to avoid using foreign terms for Indonesian language articles. New paragraphs begin 12.5 mm from the left border, while between paragraphs are not given space between. All numbers are written in Arabic numerals, except at the beginning of the sentence.

 Paragraph (TNR, 11)

Paragraphs are typed with justified alignment. However, chapter titles, sub-chapters, and paragraphs below are not spaced. Instead, between paragraphs are spaced in 1 line space.


Tabel (TNR, 11)

The table should be explained in the body. The table is made in a font size smaller than the body. The table only uses a horizontal border on the top, bottom, and column heading borders, without a vertical border (see Table 1). The table title is above the table, using TNR, hanging at 1.5 cm. The enlarged table may be 2 full columns and placed at the top or bottom of a page. The images table must be from the author's originals or literature. The original table does not require citations, while images from literature must be rewritten by the author and include literary sources. Tables must be written in tabular format, not in the form of images.

 Figure (TNR, 11)

The figure should be described in paragraphs. Display images must be clear with a minimum of 300 dpi  (Figure 1), the writings must be legible. Images can be enlarged into two full columns and placed at the beginning of the top or bottom of a page (Figure 1). Illustrations in color photos must be clear enough to be printed in black and white/Grayscale. The figure displayed must be from the author's original drawings or literature. Original images do not require citation, while pictures from literature must be modified (no direct copy and paste without modification) and include literary sources.

Equation (TNR, 11)

The equations that directly support and are the latest research results are listed, written using Microsoft Equation, and numbered. Numbering is done by proper tabulation at 7.75 cm preceded by dots. An example can be seen in Equation (1)


Conclusion (TNR, 12)

The study's main conclusion may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone. However, it should not repeat the Results, instead provide significant findings and contributions to the study.

Acknowledgment (TNR, 12)

Acknowledgments are enough to be conveyed in 1 paragraph and included before the reference.

References (TNR, 12)

The references used are primary libraries (research results) and are up to date (last ten years). References must be in Mendeley format with APA 7th edition style. The minimum number of references is 15, with 30% from journal literature in the last five years from the submission date.
