5. The Guidelines for The Manuscript Body Text

The title of the manuscript: The title should be informative and be written both briefly and clearly. It cannot diverse multi interpretations. It has to be pinpoint with the issues that will be discussed. The beginning word is written in a capital case and symmetrically. The article title does not contain any uncommon abbreviation. The main ideas should be written first and followed then by its explanations. The article title should be written within maximally 20 (twenty) words (in English).

Abstract: A concise and factual abstract is required (range from 250 to 300 words). The abstract should state briefly the background, purpose of the research, research method, the principal results, major conclusions, and contribution. It is written in single line spacing and 11 points Times New Roman.

Keywords: Keywords are a tool to help indexers and search engines find relevant papers. If database search engines can find your journal manuscript, readers will be able to find it too. This will increase the number of people reading your manuscript, and likely lead to more citations.

However, to be effective, Keywords must be chosen carefully. They should:

  • Represent the content of your manuscript
  • Be specific to your field or sub-field

Example:

  • Manuscript title: Increasing the Effective Stress Clay Using The Addition of Concrete Waste
  • Poor keywords: Soil, Concrete Waste, Effective Stress
  • Better keywords: Clay, Utilization Concrete Waste, Effective Stress Clay

Introduction: The introduction must consist of the background of the study, state of the art, gap analysis, aim of the study, and contribution. The background is one or two paragraphs explains the reason why this study is conducted. State of the art consists of literature studies which lead to a knowledge gap among the existing studies. The state of the art should be a guide to find a novelty of the study. Gap analysis is a statement to describe finding from the state of the art and the emergence reason for a study is important to be conducted. The gap analysis must state that the study is never conducted elsewhere before. The last paragraph should contain the aim of study which is generated from gap analysis. The last sentences in The Introduction should state the possible contribution of the study to the existing literature or the existing situation.

Methods: The methods section should describe what was done to answer the research question, describe how it was done, justify the experimental design, and explain how the results were analyzed. Scientific writing is direct and orderly. In the methods section, it is customary to use a form of the simple past tense to describe what the author did in his/her study. Passive voice is often used. Examples: Compaction and shear strength were tested in the laboratory using standard procedures. In the method, it is important to describe the type of research; what kind of data and how data is collected and/or selected your data; how data is analyzed; any tools or materials used in the research; the rationale for choosing these methods. The reason for selecting a method should be supported by references.

Result and Discussion: The results section should include the findings of the study and ONLY the findings of the study. The findings include data presented in tables, charts, graphs, and other figures (maybe placed among research text or on a separate page) A contextual analysis of this data explaining its meaning in sentence form. The results section should simply state the findings, without bias or interpretation, and be arranged in a logical sequence.  Typically most of the sentences in the results section will be in the past tense, some will be in the present tense, and very few, if any, will be in the future tense. The purpose of the discussion is to interpret and describe the significance of the study’s findings in light of what was already known about the research problem being investigated, and to explain any new understanding or fresh insights about the problem after study has taken the findings into consideration. To do this, follow three important suggestions: answer those questions posed in the introduction (central research questions); show how the answers are supported by the results and explain how the answers fit relative to the existing body of knowledge about the subject. In the discussion section, the past tense is generally used to summarize the findings. But when interpreting the results or describing the significance of the findings, the present tense should be used.

Conclusions: The conclusion should be written in one paragraph. The conclusion must summarize the whole paper and explain its main purpose. Important things to write in conclusion: Restate hypothesis or research question; restate major findings; the contribution of the study to the existing literature, highlight any limitations in the study and state future directions for research/recommendations. 

Acknowledgement: Give thanks to those who are involved and have contributed in the process of carrying out research and or writing scientific papers such as institutions or research institutions or institutions that finance and assist in this research process. Example: The researcher thanks the Faculty of Engineering, University of Kadiri for assisting in the research process and the preparation of this scientific article.
