The contents of the introduction are answers to questions [3,4]: (1). Background, (2). Brief literature review of related research (3). Reasons for conducting this research and (4). Purpose question. State of the art, gap analysis and noverlity can be seen here. Avoid discussing general literature reviews and definitions.

Research Methodology

Describe the preparation method and characterization techniques used. Describe briefly, but remain accurate such as size, volume, replication. For new methods, it should be explained in detail so that other researchers can reproduce the experiment. Meanwhile, established methods can be explained by picking references [5-7].

The discussion is a basic explanation, relationships and generalizations shown by the results. The description answers the research question. If there are doubtful results then present them objectively.

So that the submitted manuscript can be processed immediately by the editor, make sure it has been written properly following the instructions in this guide carefully.


Tables should be numbered in the order of presentation (Table 1, etc.). The table title is written above the table with a center justified position, no bold or color print. The font size used is 10pt for both table titles and table contents. Tables must be referred to and referred to in the text. There are no plumb lines in the table.


Figures are numbered in the order of presentation (Fig. 1, etc.). The title of the image is placed below the image in the center position (center justified). The font used in the image title is 10pt. Images must be referenced and referenced in the text.

An easy way to write scripts is to write directly in template Jurnal.


In the conclusion, there should be no references. The conclusion contains the facts obtained, sufficient to answer the problem or research objectives (do not constitute further discussion); State the possible applications, implications and speculations as appropriate. If necessary, provide suggestions for further research. State the conclusion in sentences in the form of paragraphs, not in the form of numbering.
