Author Guidelines

IPTEK journal publishes original articles on aspects of technology and science disciplines which relevant to industries and communities in developing countries. Articles are considered for publication with the condition that they have not been published or submitted for publication by other publishers.

Manuscript. The Editorial Board will decide whether a manuscript will be reviewed by reviewers with the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and accuracy. Editorial board authorized to accept, reject, or suggest the authors improve manuscripts.

Therefore, for the reviewing process, the author should submit the manuscript based on the following ms. Word template (2021 version) . Authors may also prepare a pdf version of the manuscript using tex processor based on the following PPI-V3-2021 class. You can also download the complete LaTeX package (includes examples).

The Research Method section should describe (and not limited to) review objectives and research questions, search strategy and criteria, data collection and selection, and methodological quality assessment. The Acknowledgment section is optional.

The introduction section should provide a concise yet complete background of the problem being studied. What is the object of the research? Why it is important. It is important for the author to provide a clear research gap that his study wanted to fill. A clear statement related to the novelty of the study is required.

The manuscript should provide information related to previous researches or related works. This section describes the state of the art solution of a given problem. This section should also contain the research gap of the study with respect to the previous researches or works. It highlights the importance, novelty, and contribution of the study being proposed.

The method (and material) section should provide a detailed description of the method or solution proposed within the study. The originality of the study should be the author's concerned.
