Author Guidelines

By submitting to JMDT, authors attest that:

  1. The submission is an original work, free from any form of plagiarism (text, data, and figures).
  2. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it under consideration by another journal.
  3. The submission has been approved by all co-authors and relevant authorities (e.g. an institution or sponsor).
  4. The manuscript has been (to the best of the authors’ abilities) written in good English and Bahasa Indonesia and is free of grammatical errors. It has been checked with a proofreading tool (e.g. Grammarly) and, if possible, proofed by a language editor.

ONLINE SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

Submissions to JMDT should be through its online submission system. There are no strict formatting requirements for the initial submission, as long as the article structure conforms with our guidelines (see the manuscript structure section below). Manuscripts that advance to the revision stage will then be required to be formatted appropriately (see the formatting section). This enables authors to focus on the scientific content of their manuscript, along with speeding up the article's processing time.

Author registration. Authors without a JMDT account are required to create an account before beginning their submission. Make sure that the "Author" role is selected in the Role dropdown menu, otherwise, you will not be able to proceed with the submission.

Author(s) data. The submitting author is required to complete the author(s) data during the submission. Please ensure that the affiliation addresses are complete and written exactly as they appear on the manuscript.

Manuscript metadata. Please complete at least the following information related to the manuscript:

  • Title. Fill in the manuscript title field in sentence case.
  • Abstract. Paste the abstract into the abstract field; make sure that the formatting is consistent with the manuscript (e.g. superscript and italics).
  • Keywords. Provide a maximum of five words/phrases, separated by semicolons.
  • References. References should be written following the CSE author-date style (JMDT's chosen reference style), but with the journal name written in full (not abbreviated). Separate each reference with a blank line.

Cover letter. In addition to the manuscript and its supplemental files, include a succinct cover letter stating the significance of the study and novelty of the results, as well as how it will appeal to JMDT's readership. Authors may optionally suggest two potential reviewers for their manuscript, with whom no conflicts of interest exist.

 

Submission Preparation 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.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
