Authors Submission Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published or is under consideration of another journal. The Authors have read and understood Journal Publication Ethics.
  • Authors must use the JISEBI template (Microsoft Word format) to prepare their manuscripts. Using the template file will greatly reduce the time to edit the accepted manuscripts.
  • Authors should be aware that they are addressing an international audience. The manuscript must be arranged to highlight the novelty and contributions that the global community can adopt. If your study uses case studies, make sure that the case studies are not the focus of the novelty/contribution but as a data source. The authors can explain the use of a case study as the data source in the methods section; please avoid writing this in the title or introduction section.
  • Manuscripts must be submitted in grammatically correct English using standard American English for the benefit of the readers, reviewers, and editors.  If reviewers/editors suggest that your manuscript undergoes extensive English editing, please use an English language editing service that provides editing confirmation certificates to thoroughly check the English in the manuscript and edit for language and form.
  • The list of authors listed at the time of submission is final and should not be changed. One of the authors who corresponded through the OJS system was determined as the correspondence author. The correspondent author must write all authors' information, including e-mails and ORCID ID, in the manuscript and the OJS system.
  • Manuscripts must be structured using the IMRaD (Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion) format. Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion should be organized into separate sections. If considered necessary, you can add a Literature review section before the Method section.
  • The title of your manuscript should be concise, clear, and relevant. The title should state the contents and contributions of the manuscript. The title does not use abbreviations or acronyms except the standard ones.
  • Abstract consists of 150 to a maximum of 300 words. Abstracts are arranged in a structured manner. They consisted of Background, Objective, Methods, Results, and Conclusion. The number of keywords in the abstract is between 4 and 6. All keywords must be written in the abstract. Keywords are arranged in alphabetical order. A combination of all keywords represents the content, contribution, or purpose of the text. Keywords can be in the form of research subjects' category. Avoid using adjectives as keywords in the text.
  • The introduction must explain the context/object of research and why this research is important. It must focus in accordance with the scope of the title. Authors must include the existing research gap, explaining the unique differences from this study compared to similar previous studies. Authors should cite at least six recent papers closely related to the title of the paper to show the research gap. The research objectives/contributions of the manuscript must be written explicitly.
  • Related Works or Literature review section is optional. This section may only be available if the explanation related to previous research is not sufficient if it is only shown in the introduction.
  • In the method section, authors are recommended to cite a source who helped in the selection of the method. In this section, the authors are asked to explain how data is obtained. In addition, the procedure must be written chronologically and clearly. Authors are expected to describe how results will be measured, tested, and evaluated.
  • In the results section, the author must write down the research results in logical sequences, according to the research flow. The study results are presented in the form of narrative/textual, tables, or images in the form of graphs or diagrams. Avoid displaying raw data. The authors are required to clearly describe the evaluation result of the study in this section.
  • In the discussion section, the author needs to compare results with other studies and/or an explanation of the results and in-depth analysis. The authors are also expected to write limitations of study or threats to validity in this section.
  • In the conclusion section, The authors should explicitly write down the manuscript's contribution based on the results to answer the research questions.
  • The authors are required to declare authors' contribution using the CRediT taxonomy, Funding and contract number (if any), Acknowledgements (if any), declare the potential conflicts of interest, and provide ORCID.
  • Always use automatic citation tools for managing your references. We recommend using Mendeley because editors use these tools when editing the final manuscripts. Please use IEEE citation style to format the citation in the manuscript. Ensure that you have already double-checked the citation metadata; automatic citation tools are not invulnerable to metadata errors. We recommend searching/checking the metadata of published papers based on DOI to minimize metadata errors. The manuscript is recommended to cite a minimum of 20 references. A minimum of 80% comes from journal articles/conferences, and a minimum of 80% must be published in the last ten years. Most of the references must come from credible sources; for example, journal/conference indexed/abstracted in ScienceDirect, IEEE Xplore, ACM Digital Library, Springer Link, Scopus, Clarivate Analytics, or Indonesian national accredited 
  • Please avoid using Bullets / Numbering in the manuscript; Authors can do this by writing it into paragraph form or using headings instead. The maximum allowed headings are three levels.
  • Acronyms/Abbreviations/Initialisms must be defined the first time they appear in each of the three sections: abstract, main text, the first picture or table. The acronym/abbreviation/initialism must be added in parentheses after the written form when defined for the first time.
  • The figure/graphic/table must be self-explanatory, so it does not depend on the text. However, all figures, tables, and equations must be referred to in the manuscript. Table and Equations must be editable by the editor and not displayed in image format. For an effective presentation, the authors are not allowed to display an excessive number of figures or tables. Please be mindful to consider whether the figure/image needs to be shown in the manuscript. Figures/graphics used in the manuscript are expected to be presented in high resolutions (at least 600 dpi); it is recommended to embed a vector image or Microsoft object into the manuscript if possible. Authors must make sure that all figures do not have copyright issues.
  • The length of the text is suggested between 6 and 12 pages. This is not a mandatory requirement, but for the effectiveness of presenting the manuscript, the authors are advised to follow this recommendation.
