Author Guidelines

Carefully read the submission guidelines as follows:

A. General Requirements

The minimum standard requirements of the Jurnal Penelitian Pembelajaran Fisika must be:

  1. Written in Bahasa.
  2. The article must include abstract in Bahasa and English (100-250 words) and be following by the keywords (3-5 words).
  3. Use of a tool such as Zotero, Mendeley, or EndNote for reference management and formattingThe citation must be in the form of in-text and bibliography. JP2F uses  "Journal of Physics:Conference Series" style for citation and reference
  4. Make sure that your paper is prepared using the JP2F paper template.

B. Structure of The Manuscript

The manuscript must be prepared and suggested present follow the structure:

  1. Title. The title of the paper should describe research aims, method/model, and objective, without Acronym or abbreviation.
  2. Abstract. The Abstract has 100 to 250 WORDSNo citation; State in the abstract a primary objectiveresearch designmethodologymain outcomes, and results, and the conclusions.
  3. Section structure. Authors are suggested to present their articles in the section structure: Pendahuluan Metode - Hasil dan Pembahasan – Simpulan - Ucapan Terima Kasih  - Daftar Pustaka
  4. Pendahuluan. It is a mandatory to explain the objectives of the work, as well as an adequate background, a literature review, a summary of the results.
  5. Metode. It is a mandatory to explain sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced.
  6. Hasil dan Pembahasan.  The results of the research are presented in the form of graphs, tables, or descriptive. Analysis and interpretation of these results are needed before they are discussed. The discussion is focused on linking the data and the results of its analysis to the problems or objectives of the study and the broader theoretical context. 
  7. Simpulan. Conclusions summarise key results and may include any plans for relevant future work.
  8. Ucapan Terima Kasih. The author can write thanks to those who have provided assistance or support from colleagues, superiors, or certain agencies.
  9. Daftar Pustaka. References list relevant papers referred to in the other sections, citing original works, both historical and recent. The referenced literature is suggested to contain more than 80% of primary reference in the last 10 years. Primary references include articles in scientific journals, proceedings, dissertations, theses, monographs, books and others which are the result of direct research.
C. Bibliography writing guide

C. Bibliography writing guide


Writing a bibliography in JP2F journals follows the method used in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series. This method can be found in the reference manager Mendeley. A complete reference should provide the reader with enough information to locate the article concerned, whether published in print or electronic form, and should, depending on the type of reference, consist of: 

•   name(s) and initials;

•   date published;

•   title of journal, book or other publication;

•   titles of journal articles may also be included (optional);

•   volume number;

•   editors, if any;

•   town of publication and publisher in parentheses for books;

•   the page numbers.

 For Journal of Physics: Conference Series, please use the Vancouver numerical system where references are numbered sequentially throughout the text. The numbers occur within square brackets, like this [2], and one number can be used to designate several references. The reference list gives the references in numerical, not alphabetical, order.


Points to note

  • There should be a 5 mm gap between the reference number (e.g., ‘[8]’) and the start of the reference text. Second and subsequent lines of individual references should be indented by 5 mm. For example:

 [1]     Aderhold J, Davydov V Yu, Fedler F, Klausing H, Mistele D, Rotter T, Semchinova O, Stemmer J and Graul J 2001 J. Cryst. Growth 222 701

  • The authors should be in the form surname (with only the first letter capitalized) followed by the initials with no periods after the initials. Authors should be separated by a comma except for the last two which should be separated by ‘and’ with no comma preceding it.
  • The article title (if given) should be in lower case letters, except for an initial capital, and should follow the date.
  • The journal title is in italic and is abbreviated. If a journal has several parts denoted by different letters the part letter should be inserted after the journal in Roman type, e.g. PhysRev. A.
  • Both the initial and final page numbers should be given where possible. The final page number should be in the shortest possible form and separated from the initial page number by an en rule

‘– ‘, e.g. 1203–14, i.e. the numbers ‘12’ are not repeated.

  • References to printed journal articles. A normal reference to a journal article contains three changes of font.    


Here are some examples taken from published papers:

[1]     Strite S and Morkoc H 1992 J. Vac. Sci. Technol. 10 1237

[2]     Nakamura  S,  Senoh  M,  Nagahama  S,  Iwase  N,  Yamada  T,  Matsushita  T,  Kiyoku  H  and Sugimoto Y 1996 Japan. J. Appl. Phys. 35 L74


1.1.1. References to preprints. For preprints there are two distinct cases:

  1. Where the article has been published in a journal and the preprint is supplementary reference information. In this case it should be presented as:

[1]     Kunze K 2003 T-duality  and  Penrose  limits  of  spatially  homogeneous  and  inhomogeneous cosmologies Phys. Rev. 68 063517 (Preprint gr-qc/0303038)

  1. Where the only reference available is the preprint. In this case it should be presented as

[1]     Milson R, Coley A, Pravda V and Pravdova A 2004 Alignment and algebraically special tensors Preprint gr-qc/0401010


 1.1.2. References to electronic-only journals. In general article numbers are given, and no page ranges, as most electronic-only journals start each article on page 1.


  • For SISSA journals the volume is divided into monthly issues and these form part of the article number

[1]     Horowitz  G  T  and  Maldacena  J  2004  The  black  hole  final  state  J.  High  Energy  Phys. JHEP02(2004)008


 1.1.3. References to books, conference proceedings and reports. References to books, proceedings and reports are similar to journal references, but have only two changes of font.


 Points to note 

  • Book titles are in italic and should be spelt out in full with initial capital letters for all except minor words. Words such as Proceedings, Symposium, International, Conference, Second, etc

should be abbreviated to Proc., Symp., Int., Conf., 2nd, respectively, but the rest of the title should be given in full, followed by the date of the conference and the town or city where the conference  was  held.  For  Laboratory  Reports  the  Laboratory  should  be  spelt  out  wherever possible, e.g. Argonne National Laboratory Report.

  • The volume number, for example vol 2, should be followed by the editors, in a form such as

‘ed A J Smith and P R Jones’. Use et al if there are more than two editors. Next comes the town

  • of publication and publisher, within brackets and separated by a colon, and finally the page numbers preceded by p if only one number is given or pp if both the initial and final numbers are given.

1.2. Reference lists

Up to ten authors may be given in a particular reference; where there are more than ten only the first should be given followed by et al. If an author is unsure of an abbreviation it is best to leave the title in full. The terms loc. cit. and ibid should not be used.

Unpublished conferences and reports should generally not be included in the reference list and articles in the course of publication should be entered only if the journal of publication is known. A thesis submitted for a higher degree may be included in the reference list if it has not been superseded by a published paper and is available through a library; sufficient information should be given for it to be traced readily.
Please contact info for the problems.
