Writing the title of the script using a capital case (using all capital letters). Titles do not use abbreviations or acronyms unless they are standard. The place and time of the research need not be included in the title unless the research is specific to that time and place. The author's name is written without any title. If the author comes from more than one institution, provide a number (superscript) after each author's name.One of the authors was determined to be a correspondence writer. Information for the correspondence author includes an e-mail address.

Abstract is written in narrative form in one paragraph, typed in Times New Roman letters, 11 pt, single space and without indentation.


Abstract includes 3-5 keywords representing the contents of the manuscript and keywords are written in alphabetical order.


In this section, the background of writing the article is discussed. Writing the magnitude of the problem starts from the global, national and local scales. The existence of novelty / novelty or real contribution and gap analysis (compared with other relevant research) are included in this section. Writing a quote like the following: Author, year. Writing quotes from more than one author using et al instead of dkk.


It must be comprehensive and detailed so that others can repeat the research exactly as reported. This section should be written in a narrative containing the following information:research design, time and place of research, population and research sample, estimated sample size, the sampling method, inclusion and exclusion criteria, variable of the study (definition and classification / criteria if any), instrument and materials used, detailed information about how the study was conducted, including measurements and interventions, for example: how to measure body weight and height to determine health status, how many times it was measured, who took it, when it was taken, etc.), research flow or procedure / type of treatment (especially for experimental research, statistical analysis used and the computer program used.


Write down the research results in a logical manner, according to the research flow. In general, the results begin with the characteristics of the research subject. The research results are presented in the form of narrative (textual), tables or pictures (graphs / diagrams). Avoid presenting data on research subjects as individuals except in extreme cases. Avoid writing the identity of the research subject.Tables and figures are presented informatively with a maximum of 3-5 tables or figures per manuscript. Each table / figure must be explained or narrated in the article. Tables and figures must be self-explanatory; figures and units must be clearly illustrated on the table / figure so that they do not depend on the text. Writing headings for tables and figures is on bold style. Duplication of information is not allowed, if the narrative information is clearer and more concise, then tables or figures are unnecessary or no need to be displayed. References to tables or figures are mentioned in the article in the order of appearance according to the numbering order of the table or figure. Tables / figures containing data from other references, for example secondary data, must be clearly stated in the source.The table title is placed above the table. Table numbering is carried out sequentially using Arabic numerals (1,2,3, etc.). Each column in the table is named according to the variable displayed (it is allowed to use the form of standard abbreviations). Descriptions explaining the abbreviation, code or symbol are written as footnotes at the bottom of the table. Footnotes should be written in Arabic numeric format.The image title is placed under the image. Graphics or images can be created in color.The reference for each image or graphic is mentioned in the article in the order in which it appears in the article. Pictures or graphics must be self-explanatory; numbers and units must be clearly depicted on the image or graphic so that they do not depend on the text. Minimum image resolution is not specified, but must be clearly visible.


This section contains the results of the research compared to the theory or the results of previous research. It is not allowed to repeat the information that has been presented in the results. It is better to avoid using textbooks, methodology handbooks, classic books, and newspaper reports as reference material for comparison in the discussion. Use standard terms and appropriate and correct language according to Spelling Enhanced (EYD). The discussion must have clear concepts and logical sequences between paragraphs. Any abbreviation that appears first must be stated as its full length. The discussion should ideally have the following structure: (1) Briefly describe the main study outcomes; (2) Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the study compared to previous studies and their impact on the results. (3) Explain why the research results are like those obtained in this study. If the result is satisfactory, how is the mechanism, support it with relevant references, and vice versa; (4) Describe the benefits of clinical research, as well as the possibility for policy makers to use it in health institution policies along with the reasons; (5) Describe the weaknesses and strengths of this study; (6) Provide research advice. We recommend that you avoid using textbooks, methodology handbooks, classic books, and newspaper news as reference material for comparison in the discussion.


Conclusions are written narratively in 1 (one) paragraph or more, based on research results and do not include statistical figures. Conclusions answered the research objectives. If there are suggestions or recommendations, they can be added after the conclusion.


Writing references is recommended to use reference management software such as Mendeley, Zotero, or End Note (to reduce writing errors) . Writing references and citations using the Harvard system are sorted alphabetically. The minimum number of references used is 15 with the following conditions: (1) More than 50% of literature is the result of research or articles in journals.
