Public policy

Jurnal Jamu Indonesia publishes manuscripts in Indonesian and English in all fields related to herbal medicine. Manuscripts can be in the form of recent research reports, explanations of new research methods, or new understanding of existing results. Recent theoretical contributions can also be equated with research papers. The interpretation of the above policies is the authority of the editor who will decide whether a submitted manuscript meets the criteria or not. Submission of a manuscript to the Indonesian Jamu Journal implies that the manuscript is not being published nor is it under consideration for publication anywhere. Indonesian Jamu Journal is published three times a year.

Editor and Review Process

The editor has responsibility for all editorial decisions. The names of the editors are listed in each issue, while the list of reviewers is published in the last issue of each volume. Manuscripts received by the editor will be sent to reviewers who have competence in their fields. Authors can submit reviewers' names for their manuscripts and submit them online when submitting their articles. Jurnal Jamu Indonesia will accept it as a suggestion, but it is not obligatory to follow the suggestion.

The reviewer is an advisor to the editor. The results of the review are used as a consideration for editorial decisions to accept or reject a manuscript. If a manuscript is rejected, the editor will send this decision to the author along with the opinion of the reviewers. When the manuscript is returned to the author for revision (for accepted manuscripts), the author must return it together with a statement from the reviewer and a letter indicating that revisions have been made. Revised manuscripts must be returned within 30 days at the latest. Delay will cause the manuscript to be considered as a new submission and may undergo a new review process.

Publication on the Internet

Accepted manuscripts will be published on the internet as soon as the Journal is ready to be published. Access can be made at the URL: http://jamu.journal.ipb.ac.id

Submission of Manuscripts

By following these general rules it is hoped that a short time between acceptance and publication of the manuscript can be achieved. Sent no later than three months before publication addressed to: Dr. Mohamad Rafi, M.Si, online at http://jamu.journal.ipb.ac.id

Manuscript category

Manuscripts that can be submitted are research papers, research communications, and feedback. All submitted manuscripts will go through a review process prior to publication.

Research manuscript

Complete manuscript which is a general form of publication whose contents can be accounted for.

Research communication

In the form of a short text, a maximum of 3 pages containing important findings that can interest those involved in the field of herbal medicine.


Unsolicited feedback may be considered for publication after previously submitting a summary or outline.

Manuscript format

The manuscript is typed on the MS Word software in Times New Roman font size 12 pt with double spacing and is given a line number function, A4 paper size, one column, and pages must be numbered. For Indonesian language papers, include the title in English after the title in Indonesian. The title should be precise, catchy but informative enough, and no abbreviations. Manuscripts are named after the authors and their respective affiliated institutions indicate ownership of the manuscript and put an * mark for the correspondence author. The title must be no more than 20 words and no abbreviations. Abstract of the paper is made in English and Indonesian, no more than 250 words. Keywords contain important words in the paper that can be used for index reference. Keywords are placed after the abstract with a total of between 3-5 words. The main body of the manuscript is divided into (a) Introduction; (b) Research methods, including materials and methods; (c) Results and Discussion; (d) Conclusion; (e) Acknowledgments; (f) Bibliography. Tables and figures are placed after the bibliography.

Referring to the literature on cited writing in the following way:

If single author: Heryanto (2016) or (Heryanto 2016).
If two authors: Heryanto and Rafi (2016) or (Heryanto and Rafi 2016).
If more than two authors: Heryanto et al. (2016) or (Heryanto et al. 2016).
If several references are in one sentence (Heryanto et al. 2016; Rafi et al. 2016)

Writing special tools, materials, and software follows the following procedure:

Equipment: instrument name and type (Manufacturer, City, Country of Manufacture, City, Country of fig), for example: 1700 PC UV-Vis spectrophotometer (Shimadzu, Kyoto, Japan)

Ingredients: name of ingredient and purity if available (Manufacturer, City, Country), example: quercetin 99% (Sigma-Aldrich, St Louis, USA)

Software: software name with version (Maker, City, Country)

example: The Unscrambler version X 10.2 (Camo, Oslo, Norway).

Detailed description of the script section:


This section is presented briefly, explaining the background and reasons why the research (study) was carried out. This section could be a review or study of the literature. The Introduction clearly states the current scientific status (state of the art). The number of references and the number of paragraphs (3-4 paragraphs) is limited. A statement of research objectives that is explicitly written in the last paragraph along with a brief description of the approach to solving the problem. Statements of research benefits are not recommended to be written in the Introduction, if the research findings are in fact useful, write this in the conclusion.

Research methods:

The section explaining the stages of the research and the following rules should be explained, even if there is a complicated set of experiments, it is also allowed to explain each rule before the presentation of the results. The method must be described in sufficient detail to allow the experiment or data acquisition to be repeated by others. Routine methods need to be briefly described with additional complete references. Equipment manufacturers, sources of chemicals, and drugs must be known. Calculations and statistical methods used are also included here.

What became the focus of the reviewer (reviewer) when examining the method section was the accuracy and legitimacy of the materials, tools, procedures, data collection and data analysis. If the method refers to a standard procedure, write down the default. What is meant by standard procedures are: standard procedures generally issued by the government (for example: SNI from the Indonesian government, JIS from the Japanese government,) or institutions (eg: ASTM, AOAC), or procedures that have been published. Do not refer to practical procedures.

Results and Discussion:

The presentation of the results is not merely a repetition of data that appears through illustrations (tables and pictures). The results section should be clear and follow a logical sequence. If the text describes a complex series of experiments, it is permissible to explain the rules or stages of the experiment before presenting the results. Do not discuss results or draw conclusions in this section. Often illustrations require editing as well, for example reducing or enlarging the size. In general, illustrations are not allowed to be inserted in the text. For this reason, each illustration needs to be numbered sequentially and stated in the text so that the editor does not place it in the text incorrectly.

What is criticized in the discussion is the author's ability to interpret the data collected and synthesize it to arrive at meaningful conclusions on the progress of science and technology. The discussion is not just narrating the results, the relationship that exists between the facts during the observation must be shown; don't be impressed. The author's ingenuity is shown through logical argumentation to interpret and give implications, use quality references in this case. Limitations of the findings if any should be pointed out honestly. The implications of the research results need to be stated, don't overdo it and speculate. All information is packed in good paragraphs. Never refer to references at the beginning of a paragraph. State your thoughts at the beginning of the paragraph and support it with some relevant literature. Close the paragraph with a general statement such as a small conclusion.


In conclusion, give the impression that your research is really useful for readers to read or cite.

Thank-you note:

Give briefly and only convey to appropriate parties, such as funders (sponsors), material donors, research facilities and sources of assistance with materials that cannot be obtained commercially. If you receive a research grant from a sponsor, write down the contract number as well.

Table :

Use 2 spaces for tables on separate sheets and number sequentially according to the quote number. Give each table a short and clear title, and place an explanation of the table in the footnotes. Explain any use of abbreviations also in footnotes and identification and explain all statistical measurements (standard deviation and error) and analysis (ANOVA, etc.). The table consists of 5 main parts, namely table number and title, stump head (leftmost column, stub), column head, information field, and table footnotes. There are only 3 important dividing lines, the direction is horizontal, and the remaining auxiliary lines must be made as needed. Vertical guide lines can be removed by carefully arranging columns and spacing between columns.
