Submission Guideline

We invite potential authors to submit their articles to the Indonesian Scholars Journal (IS Journal). Articles that passed our peer reviewing process (give link to “Paper review process -> peer review and guidelines” page) will be published in our first edition journal on July 2013.

IS Journal invites high quality materials in the fields of Physical Sciences; Life Science and Medicine; Mathematics and Engineering; and Social and Behavioral Sciences. We do not accept article that is protected by copyright, have been published, or have been accepted for publication in other journal. Exceptions are given to articles that have been published in limited scope, appear only in abstract form, or have appeared in a conference and/or conference proceeding. Author(s) have to clearly indicate if their article belongs to these three categories. An article must be significantly revised to meet the standards and requirements of a journal paper, if it has been previously presented in a conference. Plagiarism will be assumed if an article is highly similar to its conference version; thus, it will be rejected directly.
Every article submitted to IS Journal is subject to thorough peer reviewing process involving highly competent reviewers. The acceptance decision will be mainly based on the article’s significance, originality, and usefulness to the readers.
Article Format
Article must be written in English using academic writing principles. Preliminary discussions should be kept minimal and the materials published elsewhere should be referenced, instead of paraphrased.  The article must be represented in a consistent manor with clear idea progression.

Authors with language difficulties are encouraged to obtain assistance from colleague(s) fluent in English, before submitting their article.

The articles must follow the paper template (link) provided at the end of this page with a maximum length of 8 (eight) pages.
