Author Guidelines

J-Sil (Jurnal Teknik Sipil dan Lingkungan)  is a journal online and can be accessed openly at; This journal only publishes articles in the form of research (research paper) and the literature review (review papers). Articles in the form of comments (comments of paper) on the articles published in this journal or other journals can be considered for acceptance.
a. Articles in the form of research are original and not published in other journals—the results of research in the form of theoretical exposition with the development of data and in-depth evaluation. JSIL does not accept articles in the form of case studies and report the results of community service by the reviews too familiar. The total length of the manuscript, including references, should not exceed 10000 words.
b. Articles in the form of literature result from a critical review of the phenomenon and the planning process in the field of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The article is not a general review and should be focused on a specific description of one study. The total length of the manuscript is more flexible depending on the article's description.
c. Articles in the form of comments should display originality in expressing criticism of the article with a maximum period of one year from the date of issuance and showing a strong argument that is not presented confrontational. Articles will be sent to the author of the journal, all for the response to be published after approval from the journal's editors. Comments and replies to each author should not exceed 1,200 words.

The general aim of the journal is to provide information relevant knowledge of planning, designing, and construction in the field of civil engineering infrastructure are supported by environmental and geomatics applied aspects. This information is expected to accommodate the needs of globalization, sustainability, and the development of the latest technologies by considering the environment, health, and public. The specifications of the topics include: structure, irrigation, drainage, water quality, water construction, hydrology, water management, groundwater conservation, soil mechanics, foundation, soil improvement, slope stability, liquefaction, and soil modeling, road engineering, transportation management, construction management, environmental atmosphere, and climate change environment (control of greenhouse gases, air quality models, climate change locally and globally), renewable energy and waste management (recovery of energy from waste, incineration, landfills, and green energy, biotechnology environment (nano-bio sensors, bioenergy, environmental eco-engineering), technology, physical, biological, and chemical (membrane technology, the process of advanced oxidation technology Physico-chemical, biological treatment of water), engineering environmental control (desalination, ICA (instruments, management, and automation), and water reuse technologies) and Applied geomatics

Writing and publication ethics

Policy on research and publication ethics should at least meet the following criteria:

  1. Statement of conflict of interest, If there is a conflict of interest, authors should disclose the information in the article.
  2. Author, Authorship credit should be based on 1) the most significant contribution to the conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or critical revision contents for important intellectual content, and 3) final approval of the version to be published. The authors must fulfill these three requirements. No changes are allowed after the acceptance of the article authors.
  3. Originality and duplicate publication, All original articles should be written and considered by other scientific journals.

Peer-review process

The editorial board will first review articles' general feasibility of language and content writing. Then, the paper will be reviewed by two reviewers, following the area of expertise. Editorial Board may ask the author to revise the article following reviewers' opinions. After the revised article, the author must upload the revised article with additional articles to reply to and respond to any reviewer's comments. Revision of the author must be completed within 15 days after the request. If the article is not received by the due date, the editorial board uses it as a pillow, and articles cannot reprocess the same title. To extend the revision period up to more than 30 days, the authors should contact the editorial board beforehand. The review process should be completed after the approval of article reviewers and editor. Editorial Board will make a final decision on approval for the article's publication and may request the correction, revision, and further removal of the article text if required. The final revision must be submitted within one week after the request.

  • If scientific papers originate from sponsor research grants, authors are required to write the contract number and title of the study, as well as the execution of the contract.
  1. Writing citations and Bibliography.
    Writing citations in the text and contents and Bibliography refers to the writing of the kind of "Vancouver." Quote, quote written using numbers before the dot at the end of the sentence. Number citations begin and end brackets. Writing should quote numbers sequentially from the beginning of the emergence in the text. If quotes consist of two reference sources, the number of citations is written sequentially from the beginning number and followed by a comma; For example, (1,2) or (1,5). If the quote is composed of more than two sources of reference, citation numbers are written sequentially from the starting number, followed by dashes, and ends the final number of citations; For example: (1-4) or (1 to 4.8).
    A highly recommended bibliography refers only to journals, scientific papers, and books. The most important note on page writing is:
  • When the "value of tens" page has not changed, the writing page only lists the dashes and follows the page's unit value. So, for example, a script was written journal citation from page 330 to 339, then the writing procedure is 330-9.
  • When the "value of tens" changed pages, writing pages must include the hyphen and follow the "tens value" page. For example, a script was written journal citation from page 337 to 341, then the writing procedure is 337-41.

The format of writing "Vancouver" is as follows (1-3):
