  1. Introduction

This document is an author's guide and article template of the Advance Sustainable Science, Engineering, and Technology (ASSET) in publications starting in Volume 2, Issue 1, 2020. The first paragraph is not indented. Write the full paper article using Microsoft Office Word format (not .pdf). The full paper should be submitted as Microsoft Office Word (.doc or .docx) file.

The second and the next paragraphs is indented. For easiness of writing the article, this guidance is provided in digital version, so authors can write directly in this format without worrying the format of the article. Every article sent to the ASSET editor must follow these writing instructions. If the article does not match, the writing will be returned without further review. The author must use the style provided in this template. This template can be viewed on the ASSET page (

1.1.  Writing the Title, Nama, and Affiliation of the Author

Article title, author's name (without academic title), affiliation and author's affiliate address are palced on the first page under the article title. The distance between the lines between the title and the author's name is 2 spaces, while the distance between the author's affiliate address and the abstract title is 1 space. Keywords must be written below the abstract text for each language, arranged in alphabetical order and separated by commas with 3-5 words.

The author of the responsible or corresponding author must be marked with an asterisk *. At the bottom of the left column of the first page, you must write the Corresponding Author and also write the email address (using an email containing the address of the institution).

If there are more than one author, all authors' names are separated by commas (,). If the author has more than one affiliate, the affiliation is written in sequence. Superscript marks in the form of numbers, for example 1, are given behind the author's name. If all authors are from one affiliation, this sign does not need to be given.

The manuscript must be written in Times New Roman font with a font size of 11 pt (except the title of the article and the abstract), spaced out in one space.

New paragraphs begin 10 mm from the left border, while between paragraphs are not given a space between. All numbers are written in Arabic numbers, except at the beginning of the sentence.

2.3.  Provisions of Figures and Tables

Tables and figures are placed in groups of text after the tables or figures are referred. Figures and tables are placed so that their position is on the top of the page. Each figures must be given a figure caption (Figure Caption) below the image and numbered in Arabic numerals followed by the image title (Figure 1). Each table must be given a table title (Table Caption) and numbered in Arabic numerals at the top of the table followed by the table title (Table 1). Images must be guaranteed to print clearly (font size, resolution and line size must be printed clearly). Figures and tables and diagrams / schemes should be placed in columns between groups of text or if they are too large in the middle of the page (Figure 2). Tables should not contain vertical lines, horizontal lines are allowed but only important ones (see table writing in Table 1).

2.4.  Provisions of Writing Equations

Each equation is written in the middle of the column and given a number written in brackets and placed at the end of the right margin. Equations must be written using Equation Editor in MS Word or Open Office, like the example in Equation 1.










2.5.  Citations and Reference List

Author must write the source of the reference in their writings. All references referred to in the article text must be registered in the Bibliography section. Bibliography must contain reference libraries originating from at least 80% of primary sources, namely scientific journal articles, proceedings, research reports, reference books (not popular books) and other primary sources. The primary reference is published no later than 5 (five) years. Bibliography contains at least 15 (fifteen) reference libraries.

Bibliography is written using the IEEE (numbered) format. The order of bibliography is based on the order in which they appear in the paragraphs of the manuscript. Writing a bibliography should use reference management applications such as Mendeley, End Note, Zotero, or others.

References or citations are inserted in paragraphs using the IEEE (numbering) format with the following conditions. The numbers for each reference item are written in square brackets, for example [1]. Some references can be written with separate square brackets, for example [2], [4], [6], and [7]. Sequential references are written with a dash (-), for example in [1-3], [15-17]. A detailed explanation of the IEEE citations format and writing of the reference list can be found at

  1. Results and Discussion

This chapter lays out specific instructions for writing the full text, including the article section, the systematic chapter and its contents. These specific instructions will guide the entire editorial process of the article as shown in Figure 2.

3.1.  Systematics of the Article

Article title: The title of the article must be written briefly and clearly and must indicate exactly the problem to be raised, not to allow a variety of interpretations, written in small letters and in the middle of the paragraph. Article titles may not contain abbreviations that are not commonly used. The main idea of the article put forward first and then followed by other explanations.


Abstract: Abstract is written in English. The number of words is limited to a maximum of 150. Abstracts should be as concise as possible, accurate and clear and describe the research you are doing and confirm the results of key research / development. Keywords are 3-5 keywords inserted after the abstract and each keyword is separated by a comma (,).


Introduction: The introduction must contain (sequentially) general background, previous literature studies (state of the art) as a basis for the statement of scientific renewal of the article, gap analysis of what has been produced by previous research, and a statement of the importance of the research carried out. At the end of the introduction the explicit purpose of the article should be stated. In the scientific article format it is not permissible to review the literature as in the research report, but is manifested in the form of previous literature studies (state of the art) to show what the focus of the research is, what is lacking, why this research is important and the purpose of the research The writer did. Authors must avoid unnecessary duplication / repetition of explanations on the work of themselves / others that have been published.


Research methods: The research method explains the stages of research or development carried out to achieve the research goals / objectives. Each stage is briefly explained, for example each stage in one paragraph. The materials / platforms / platforms used in research are described in this chapter, which includes the subject / material being studied, tools / software used, experimental design or design used, sampling techniques, test plans (variables to be measured and techniques take data), analysis and statistical models used.


Results and discussion: The results and discussion contain the results of research / development findings and their scientific discussion. Scientific findings (scientific finding) obtained from the results of research conducted have been described in this chapter but must be supported by adequate data. The scientific findings referred to here are not the research data obtained (can be attached as supplementary files). Scientific findings must be explained scientifically include: Are scientific findings obtained? Why does that happen? Why are variable trends like that? All of these questions must be explained scientifically, not only descriptive, if necessary supported by adequate basic scientific phenomena. In addition, it should be explained its relationship with existing concepts and comparison with previous studies, whether the research results are appropriate or not, getting better or not and other aspects.


Conclusions: Conclusions are sufficient to state the answers to the hypotheses and / or research objectives stated in the introduction. The conclusion does not contain a repeat of the results and discussion, but rather a summary of the findings as expected in the objectives or hypotheses. If necessary, at the end of the conclusion can also be written things that will be done related to further ideas from the research.


Acknowledgments: Acknowledgments are primarily addressed to research funders or donors. Acknowledgments can also be conveyed to those who helped carry out the research. Lecturers / researchers listed in the author list do not need to be thanked in this section.

Bibliography: Bibliography must contain reference libraries originating from at least 80% of primary sources, published no later than 5 (five) years, and at least contain 15 (fifteen) references with IEEE format.
