Instruction for Author
Scripta Instruction for Author
Types of paper
(a) Research Papers: these papers are fully documented, interpreted accounts of significant findings of original research. Authors should aim for no more than eight figures per paper. Any non-essential figures can be included in the Supplementary Material (see Supplementary Material section below). Papers not conforming to these guidelines may be rejected, at the Editor's discretion.
(b) Review Papers: these are critical and comprehensive reviews that provide new insights or interpretation of a subject through thorough and systematic evaluation of available evidence. We would not expect to receive a review paper that is shorter than 8000 words.
(c) Mini Review: these are short, timely articles that summarize recent developments in a field without providing an exhaustive review of all the literature. We encourage Mini-Reviews which propose provocative new ideas or which challenge currently accepted opinions. We would expect a Mini Review to be around 3000 words. Section headings should be short and informative. No more than four figures should be included.
(d) Commentaries should normally take the form of a ‘letter’ and present significant comments or questions about a work published in the Journal. A commentary would normally include substantiated disagreement with, or alternative interpretation of, one or more aspects of a paper. It would also normally discuss associated implications for the conclusions reached. Commentaries should be received within 3 months of the publication date of the paper on which they comment. Authors of potential discussions are encouraged to enter into communication with the Editor-in-Chief before preparation or submission of text. While there is no word limit, commentaries should be brief and tightly focused. A commentary, if accepted, will normally be shared with the authors of the paper concerned who will be provided opportunity to respond.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Ethics in publishing
You will be required to accept the UMPwr Publishing Ethics Statement for Authors when you submit your paper to the journal. The statement covers authorship, originality and conflicts of interest. Please read this statement to ensure your submission complies.
Note that conference proceedings are a form of publication.
To verify originality, your article may be checked by the originality detection service CrossCheck.
Changes to authorship
If you wish to add, delete or rearrange the authors of your accepted paper:
Before online publication: The corresponding author should contact the Journals Manager, and provide (a) the reason for the change, and (b) the written consent of all co-authors, including the authors being added or removed. Please note that your paper will not be published until the changes have been agreed.
After online publication: Any requests to add, delete, or rearrange author names in an article published in an online issue will follow the same policies as noted above and result in a corrigendum.
Authors of new submissions from the 1st of February 2021 will not need to pay Article Submission Charges thanks to the support of universities, institutions and individuals who have contributed towards our annual Subscribe to Open goal. To find out more about how you can help keep these journals Open Access, visit our website or get in touch.
Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to decide on the type of Open Access Licence they would like to be published under (for more information see our Licences page). Permitted third party reuse of open access articles is determined by the author's choice of user licence. More information is available on our Open Access page.

Role of the funding source
You are requested to identify who provided financial support for the conduct of the research and/or preparation of the article and to briefly describe the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in study design; in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to submit the article for publication. If the funding source(s) had no such involvement then this should be stated.
Papers must be in good, grammatically correct English. If your paper cannot be understood, it will be rejected. If English is not your native language, you should seek the assistance of a colleague or professional translator. UMPwr Publishing has partnered with Peerwith, who offer a language editing service.
In addition, you should always have your manuscript read by at least two other people to avoid typing errors before submitting to a journal.
Articles should be provided in electronic form (uploaded to our online submission site (http://jurnal.umpwr.ac.id/index.php/scripta) and comply with the instructions below. There are additional instructions on how to submit a paper through Editorial Manager here.
You are required to submit, with the manuscript, the names and addresses of 2 potential reviewers that can give an independent review. You should make sure that these reviewers are not within your institution and where possible use reviewers from different countries. If in doubt please look at your references.
Major corrections cannot be undertaken by either the editor or the publishers; if your paper is not prepared in accordance with these instructions it may not be considered further. Where requested to do so in the course of the peer review process, authors must revise their papers within one month of the request; otherwise the contribution will be considered withdrawn.
Peer Review Process
All papers that an Editor sends for review, will be peer reviewed, you can see the full process here. More information on how to review a paper can be found here. Instructions on how to submit a review in Editorial Manager are here.
Use of word processing software
The preferred format for electronic versions is Microsoft Word, though we can accept most other word-processing packages in PC or Macintosh formats; however, please do not supply your typescript as a PDF. Authors should not add their own macros. Please supply only the final version of your file (with no hidden text), to avoid any risk of old versions of the text being used in error.
The source files of figures are required if a paper is accepted and you should embed the figures in the main text (see below).
Do not number or letter section headings.
Use line numbering throughout your paper.
Papers should be well structured; they must comprise:
- Short title of no more than 14 words
- Author name(s), full postal and email addresses for each author. Please indicate who the corresponding author is.
- Abstract: no more than 250 words briefly specifying the aims of the work, the main results obtained, and the conclusions drawn. Citations must not be included in the Abstract.
- Keywords: up to 6 keywords (in alphabetical order) which will enable subsequent abstracting or information retrieval systems to locate the paper.
- Hightlights: up to 5 numbered points which describe the novelty and/or the impact of your research. The highlights should help increase the discoverability of your article. Ensure the highlights are, concise, easy to read, and include key search terms (you should not simply rewrite the abstract).
Main text: for clarity this should be subdivided into:
- Introduction: describing the background of the work and its aims.
- Methods: a brief description of the methods/techniques used (the principles of these methods should not be described if readers can be directed to easily accessible references or standard texts).
- Results and Discussion: a clear presentation of experimental results obtained, highlighting any trends or points of interest.
- Conclusions: a brief explanation of the significance and implications of the work reported.
- References: these should be to accessible sources. Please ensure that all work cited in the text is included in the reference list, and that the dates and authors given in the text match those in the reference list. References must always be given in sufficient detail for the reader to locate the work cited (see below for formats). Note that your paper is at risk of rejection if there are too few (<10) or too many (>25) references, or if a disproportionate share of the references cited are your own.
Supplementary Material: Appendices and other Supplementary Material are permitted, and will be published online only.
Data: We encourage authors to make the dataset on which their paper is based available to access. Authors may upload all data related to the results reported in the manuscript as supplementary materials with the submission, or provided via a URL to a public repository. Data should be presented in a format that facilitates readability and reuse.
Where restrictions apply, submissions should be accompanied by a statement of the conditions of access and permitted reuse of the data.
For Review Papers the organization of the paper can be different. It is however important that a review is more than a summary of the literature; an in-depth critical discussion is essential for acceptance of a review paper.
All figures should be embedded and correctly positioned within your Word files, and should also be supplied as separate graphics files in their original formats. EPS, TIFF or PSD formats are preferred. Use a minimum of 300dpi.
The journal is printed in black and white, with colour graphics in the online version.
Figures should appear in numerical order, be described in the body of the text and be positioned close to where they are first cited. Each figure should have a caption which describes the illustration, and that can be understood independently of the main text. The caption should be given in the text, and not on the figure itself.
Make sure all figures and tables will fit inside the text area.
Because figures may be resized in the course of production please use scale bars and not magnification factors.
Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules.
We use digital object identifiers (DOIs) to link references to the source material. This can only be done if the data provided in the references are correct. Please be very careful, especially when copying references, to ensure that surnames, journal/book titles, publication year and pagination are all correct. Please include DOIs where available.
List of References
References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. Although "et al." is preferable in the text, in the list of references all authors should be given.
