- All manuscripts should be submitted electronically via the Open Journal System (OJS) of the Journal of Noncommunicable Diseases Prevention and Control. The author who submitted the manuscript automatically becomes the corresponding author and must provide contact information (full name, email address, institutional affiliation, and mailing address) for all the co-authors.
- The manuscript is reviewed blindly by the reviewers who have been appointed in accordance with their fields of expertise. The author is given an opportunity to revise the manuscript based on recommendations/suggestions from reviewers or editors. The publication or rejection of the manuscript will be announced in writing.
- All manuscripts must be accompanied by an Author Statement Letter that contains clear and precise information about the submission, highlighting the originality of the work, ensuring no plagiarism, and stating that the manuscript has not been submitted for publication elsewhere in English/Indonesian (download a sample Author Statement Letter HERE).
Manuscript Style and Format
The manuscript should be original research work written in English or Indonesian in a concise and understandable manner. It has not been published in any journal, either nationally or internationally, or is not being proposed in other journals, and is not the result of plagiarism by others, as evidenced by the original statement of originality.
It is advised that authors who may want professional assistance with improving the English or formatting in their manuscript should do so before submitting it.
The manuscript should be typed in Microsoft Word, Times New Roman 12 pt, 1.5-spaced on A4 (8.5" x 11") paper size with 2.54 cm (1 inch) margins. Articles should be in the following order:
- Materials and Methods
- Results and Discussion
- Conflict of Interest (if any)
- Acknowledgement (if needed)
The title should be concise and reflect the key elements of the research. The title should be followed by the authors’ full names and affiliations. The corresponding author should be indicated with an asterisk and provide the full corresponding address (e-mail address and telephone number). The title is typed in capital letters in the middle, Times New Roman, size 18 pt.
Abstracts are both written in English and Indonesian (Abstrak) and have a maximum length of 250 words. Abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research, methodology, principal results, main findings, and major conclusions. The abstracts should not be referenced, and the use of abbreviations should be minimized and spelled out when first used. Abstract is typed in Times New Roman font, 11 pt with single spacing.
The abstract should be followed by 4-6 keywords or a combination of words, provided by the authors and separated by a comma.
The Introduction section contains research background, a literature review or previous findings, the state of the art, and research objectives. A referenced introduction should set the work in context. The introduction should be kept to a minimum length and be relevant to the research described. It should state the rationale, justifications, and objectives of the research. Detailed descriptions of routine experimental procedures should be avoided.
Materials and Methods
The Materials and Methods section consists of research design, data sources, data collection techniques, and data analysis conducted by researchers. Authors should provide sufficient experimental details to allow others to reproduce the findings presented, but where necessary, synthetic and bioassay protocols should refer to published procedures by literature citation of the original method and any later modifications used. Spectroscopic data for the characterization of new compounds should be described in sufficient detail. Plants must be properly identified and authenticated by a taxonomist or experienced botanist, and specimens must be deposited in a recognized herbarium. A voucher number must be stated. Where possible, supporting information can be useful for presenting experimental details while limiting the size of the main document. This should be divided into subsections if several methods are described.
Ethical Considerations on the Use of Experimental Animals and Human Subjects
Experiments involving the use of live animals must include a statement of approval by an ethical committee certifying that such experiments were performed in accordance with all international guidelines and regulations. For experiments involving humans or tissue samples, a statement that informed consent was obtained from the subject or from the next of kin must be included.
Results and Discussion
The Results and Discussion section contains detailed descriptions of all research results and findings along with their analysis. The results could be supported by tables, graphs, drawings, and/or charts. The section should also discuss the meaning of the results and findings in comparison with the theory and/or the results from a previous study or similar research. The Results and Discussion may be divided into subsections with short, informative headings. Authors should present their data in a clear and interpretative manner. The presentation of data should not be duplicated. The discussion should interpret the results and relate them to existing knowledge in the field (with relevant literature). Supporting information can be used if this helps make the result clearer. All results presented in tabular form or graphical form should be comprehensively described in this section.
Authors should state their conclusions or the significance of their findings, which answer the research questions. The Conclusion section should also put forward the implications of the research results for the development of science and technology.
Conflict of Interest Disclosure
A statement describing any financial conflicts of interest or lack thereof is published with each manuscript. During the submission process, the author/corresponding author must provide this statement on behalf of all authors of the manuscript.
Funding bodies, research facilities, and all those who assisted in the work but may not qualify as authors should be acknowledged.
References only contain the sources referred to in the manuscript. The sources of references should contain 80% of primary sources in the last 10 years. All citations and references are written using the APA style, alphabetically ordered, with a minimum of 15 references, and compiled using the reference manager software (Mendeley). The reference list should be typed single-spaced.
