- It is strongly discouraged to use quotations from unpublished references or based on personal communication.
- Use parentheses and separate them with semicolons to mention multiple literature references, tables, and figures. Example: (Sudirman 1992; Budiman 1995) (Table 1; Figure 2). Sort the references starting from the oldest year. 
The chapters of the manuscript such as introduction, research methods, results and discussion, conclusions and suggestions, acknowledgments (optional), and bibliography are written in the middle of the page (alignment center). All letters are written in uppercase and bold.
11. Subchapters are written in capital letters at the beginning of the sentence (sentence case), bold, and positioned on the left side of the page (alignment left). While subsections are not bold, but italicized.

The Abstract is written in two languages (Indonesian and English) with a maximum of 250 words, including a brief introduction, research objectives, methods, results, and conclusions in a concise and clear manner. Avoid the use of abbreviations except those that are commonly used or have been previously mentioned.

Written in Indonesian and English, maximum 5, arranged in alphabetical order from the beginning of the word.

The introduction contains the background or strong reasons for conducting the research, objectives, and hypotheses if any. Use literature that really supports the discussion in the article.

Research methods can include laboratory experiments, field experiments, and field surveys designed according to the purpose or type of research. Previously published methods should be written as literature, only relevant modifications should be described. The research method can be divided into several subchapters according to the details of the steps of the scientific work, for example: materials, equipment, data analysis.

Present the results of the research first, giving sufficient explanation for important findings, followed by analysis and then discussion. Subchapters in the results and discussion are developed systematically and lead to conclusions.

The conclusion is an answer to the research objectives and not a summary of the results obtained. The suggestions put forward must be related to the implementation or results of the research.

This section can be used to express gratitude to funders or parties (institutions/personnel) who have collaborated or contributed.

The bibliography should be arranged alphabetically from the first author. If there are two or more publications from the same author in the same year, then the year of publication of the publication is added with a small letter that can distinguish (for example: Suwanto A. 1998a; Suwanto A. 1989b). The writing of the bibliography must follow the rules as exemplified below:
