ISJ A - Life Science
Life sciences can be defined as an area of science that deals with living things and life processes. This field comprises the study of life and organisms, from microorganisms, plants, animals, to humans, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy, as well as related aspects, such as bioethics and biosafety. Life sciences is one of the most explored branches of science nowadays.
Rapid advancement of this field has led to the development of many emerging fields, such as molecular biology, biotechnology, computational biology, metabolic engineering, system biology, and synthetic biology.
Life sciences have been applied to enhance the wellbeing of humakind. One of the earliest application of life sciences is in the field of food sciences and technology, for over 6000 years we have utilized biological processes for the production of useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products. Food sciences and technology itself can be defined as the discipline in which the engineering, biological, and physical sciences are used to study the nature of foods, the causes of deterioration, the principles underlying food processing, and the improvement of foods for the consuming public. Nowadays, food sciences and technology are studied in many subdisciplines, such as food chemistry, food microbiology, food packaging, food preservation, new product development, quality control, and sensory analysis.
Indonesian scholar journal A: Life Science welcomes articles on (not limited to) recent findings, analysis results, measurement methodologies, new biological mechanisms discoveries, new species discoveries, and/or new technology/ procedures in the field of life sciences and food sciences and technology.
ISJ B - Physical Science
Physical science is the study of matter and energy. That covers a lot of domain because matter refers to all the objects that exist in the universe. Energy is also universal. It provides matter the ability to moves and changes. The major disciplines in physical science fields can be divided into Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, and Earth Science. Additionally, the distinctions between the disciplines are not always strict, and they share a number of cross-discipline fields.
Physics is the fundamental science because all of natural science fields deal with systems that obey the laws of physics. The physical laws of matter, energy, and the forces of nature govern the interactions between all objects in the universe. The research fields in Physics includes Theoretical physics, Optics, Electro-Magnetics, Condensed Matter Physics, Plasma Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Nuclear Physics, High-energy Physics, etc.
Chemistry addresses phenomena associated with the structure, composition and energetics of matter. Often known as the central science, chemistry can connect fundamental laws of physics to engineering and other natural sciences. The area of Chemistry shall include Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, etc.
Astronomy is the science of celestial objects--such as stars, planets, comets, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies--and phenomena that originate outside the Earth's atmosphere. The area of Astronomy is related to study the evolution, physics, chemistry, meteorology, and motion of celestial objects, as well as the formation and development of the universe. Interesting topics in Astronomy include Astrophysics, Cosmic Rays and Gamma Astronomy, Formation and Evolution of Stars, Magnetospheric Physics, Solar Activity, Solar/Interstellar Terrestrial Relations, Space Observation and Exploration, etc.
Earth science is an all-embracing term for the sciences related to the planet Earth. Hence, the domains of earth science are atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, as well as biosphere. The discipline of those domains includes Geology, Geography, Geophysics, Geodesic, Soil Science, Paleontology, Petrology, Mineralogy, Oceanography, Hydrology, Meteorology, Climatology, etc.
Journal of Physical Science includes articles about (but not limited to) experiment result, new concept, measurements, characterization, improving process/methodology, and new discovery as well as simulation and modeling in the field of Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, and Earth Science.
ISJ C - Medicine
Original research articles publish in ISJ Medicine range from basic findings that have clear implications for disease pathogenesis and therapeutic application and public health policy to the earliest phases of human investigation. The journal aims to keep physicians, scientists and public health policy makers informed of a wide range of biomedical research findings. The journal publishes the latest advances in cancer biology, neuroscience, developmental biology, inflammatory disease, infectious disease, metabolic disorders, tropical diseases, pharmacy, among other fields.
ISJ D - Mathematics and Engineering Science
Although it does not have a generally-accepted definition, mathematics is a science that deducts the existing axioms and definitions to thoroughly prove a proposition or theorem. Most of the time, mathematics is able to model natural phenomena accurately and further provide relevant explanation and predictions. The science of mathematics often serves as a solid foundation towards many more findings and advancements in other fields, such as engineering, physical and medical sciences.
On the other hand, engineering is a science that combines many other branches of sciences to produce a device, system, material or process that complies with certain specifications which at the same time fulfills certain safety standards. Usually, it must be done under some economical and financial constraint. An engineer professionally exercises the science of engineering by combining experience and other branches of knowledge, such as logics and mathematical inductions, to solve a problem in hand. Engineering has produced a large number of devices and processes, such as cellular phone and the internet, which are known to have a tremendous impact on the life of humankind.
Journal of mathematics and engineering publishes articles that examines (but not limited to) mathematical modeling and its applications in engineering. The articles cover both theoretical—such as new algorithms, new concepts and analytic derivation of existing topics—and practical aspects—such as experimental results, prototypes and new applications—in the field of mathematics and engineering.
ISJ E - Economics, Business, and Management
Economics is a social science that studies how individuals, firms, and governments choose to allocate available resources, while business and management refers to a study of organizations, such as planning, organizing,directing, and controlling, to accomplish the defined objectives. Globalization, which has created more integrated and interdependent markets within and across borders, increases the importance of economics, business, and management studies.
Journal of Economics, Business, and Management encompasses the articles in the field of economics, finance, accounting, and management: human resources, operations, and marketing. It seeks to publish either qualitative or quantitative manuscripts addressing contemporary issues that demonstrate relevancy for Indonesian and International context.
ISJ F - Politics, Law, International Relation, and Public Policy
Despite these subjects are different, they are inter-related both in theoretical framework and in implementation. Law is considered as a system of norm which covers almost all human’s conducts and activities. Both private and public realms are subject to the system of law. By utilising the law, the state can control its citizen’s conduct and behaviour. Law has diverse meaning and application. With regard to indigenous or local laws, the laws are being accepted by the communities, despite the fact that the laws are unwritten and spread orally. The national law is a written and formal law which regulates general principles of the state. The national law includes constitutional and administrative laws. Moreover, as a result of globalisation, countries are subject to several international covenants and agreements which legally and politically affect the country’s national affairs.
Nevertheless, the interaction and competition of these laws are insufficient to be discussed merely on legal stance. By default, law is a ‘rigid’ norm, therefore it needs applicative instruments. Public policy and governance fill the gap of law. Public policy can be characterised as a dynamic, interactive and complex system which aims to create new public policy or reform existing public policy. By merging and utilizing these subjects, the gap between ‘text’, ‘context’ and ‘contextualisation’ would be settled.
The journal of law, public policy and governance includes articles that examine the inter-connection between law and public policy. Articles can be both doctrinal, empirical and the mixture between both.
