To simply follow our journal's guideline, please download this TEMPLATE, and replace the content with your own material.

Jurnal Akta Kimia Indonesia (Indonesia Chimica Acta) have a policy of screening for plagiarism. We use Anti-Plagiarism Software Turnitin to check the authenticity article

In addition, the author must make a Statement Letter that the article has never been published in another journal.

All articles should be written in a clear and concise English.

Structure (For Research Article) :
Please use the following structure for your your research article.

The title should be brief and informative. For the article presented in a scientific meeting should be informed in a footnote.

Authors’ names should appear immediately below the title, followed by Authors’ affiliations, addresses and the email address of the corresponding author.

Abstract should be no longer than 250 words, giving a brief summary of the content and conclusions. Do not include artwork, tables, elaborate equations or references.

3-5 keywords should be provided for indexing and abstracting.

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, state the art, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Theory/Calculation (if any)
A theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

Experimental Methods
Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference. Only relevant modifications should be described.

Results and Discussion
Results should be clear and concise. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

The conclusion section is required. It contains the main points of the article. It should not replicate the abstract, but might elaborate the significant results, possible applications and extensions of the work.

Conflict of Interest
Financial contributions and any potential conflict of interest must be clearly acknowledged under the heading ‘Conflict of Interest’. Authors must list the source(s) of funding for the study. This should be done for each author. If there is no conflict of interest, authors should state "The authors declare that there is no conflict of interest."

Acknowledgment is recommended to be given to persons or organizations helping the authors in many ways. Sponsor and financial support acknowledgments may be placed in this section. Use the singular heading even if you have many acknowledgments.

Jurnal Akta Kimia Indonesia (Indonesia Chimica Acta) uses American Psychological Association (APA) referencing style. It is recommended to use Mendeley reference manager application. The number of references should be at least ten, and 80% of which should be from primary source publications (journals) from the last five years.

References should be written as the following examples.

Titles of non-English reference should be translated into English, ended by original language in parenthesis (in Japanese, etc.).

Article Format
The article should be written in Times New Roman 12, MS Words for Windows of A4 paper. A template of the article can be downloaded here.

Figures and Tables
Figures and tables should be numbered using Arabic numerals and be kept to the minimum consistent with clear presentation of the work reported. Numbers and titles of figures should be placed below the figures, while those of tables should be placed above.

Because AIJ will do the final formatting of your paper, you do not need to position figures and tables at the top and bottom of each column. In fact, all figures, figure captions, and tables can be at the end of the paper. Large figures and tables may span both columns. Place figure captions below the figures; place table titles above the tables. If your figure has two parts, include the labels “(a)” and “(b)” as part of the artwork. Please verify that the figures and tables you mention in the text actually exist. Please do not include captions as part of the figures. Do not put captions in “text boxes” linked to the figures. Do not put borders around the outside of your figures. Do not abbreviation “Fig.” but should use “Figure”. Do not abbreviate “Table.” Tables are numbered with Roman numerals. Color printing of figures is available. Do not use color unless it is necessary for the proper interpretation of your figures.

Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Use words rather than symbols. For example, write the quantity “Magnetization,” or “Magnetization M,” not just “M.” Put units in parentheses. Do not label axes only with units. For example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or “Magnetization (Am-1),” not just “A/m.” Do not label axes with a ratio of quantities and units. For example, write “Temperature (K),” not “Temperature/K.”

Multipliers can be especially confusing. Write “Magnetization (kA/m)” or “Magnetization (103 A/m).” Figure labels should be legible, 9 point type.

Examples of a figure and a table are as follows:

Figure 1. The relationship of antioxidant activity and variation of M.oleifera extract.


Table 1. Antioxidant activity of Moringa leaf extract at various concentrations.

Equations, Symbols, and Abbreviations
Use either the Microsoft Equation Editor or the MathType add-on (http://www.dessci.com/en/products/mathtype/) for equations in your paper (Insert | Object | Create New | Microsoft Equation or MathType Equation). “Float over text” should not be selected.

Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush with the right margin, as in (1). First, use the equation editor to create the equation. Then, select the “Equation” markup style. Press the tab key and write the equation number in parentheses. To make your equations more compact, you may use the solidus (/), the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Use parentheses to avoid ambiguities in denominators.
