INTRODUCTION (12pt, bold, center, capital letter)

                The authors have to refer to Jurnal Keteknikan Pertanian guidelines for format and style. Jurnal Keteknikan Pertanian also provides a template to assist Authors in preparing manuscripts. To use this template, please just Save As this file to your document, then copy and paste your document here. To copy and paste the text to this template document, please use “Special Paste” and choose “Unformated Text”.

Manuscripts are written in English and use standard scientific usage. Manuscripts should be prepared in Microsoft Word format, except for Graphs using Microsoft Excel program and Figures using JPEG or PDF format. Manuscripts should be typed using Times New Roman fonts at 12 points and double-spaced except for Title, Tables, Title of Graphs/Figures, and appendix typed single-spaced. Manuscripts are prepared in A4 paper, margins on all four sides are 3 cm, and total number of pages is 12-20. Tables, Graphs, and Figures should be placed after the References of the manuscript.

            Introduction describes a brief background of the research, novelty, state of the arts, and objective(s). It should be written efficiently and supported by references. Extensive discussion of relevant literatures should be included in the discussion, not in the introduction.

 

MATERIALS AND METHODS (12pt, bold, center, capital letter)

It should be written clearly and completely containing a clear description of biological, analytical, and statistical procedures; so they can be repeated by other researchers. References of original methods/procedures must be stated and all modifications of procedures (if any) should be explained. The materials that used should be described clearly and fully (i.e., the harvest stage of fruit or vegetables, machine description and or specification). The name of the organism must be followed by its full scientific name on the first disclosure. Abbreviations are first written in brackets after the abbreviated words.

Authors should state clearly information of commercial product and equipment used in the research, such as commercial name, product/equipment spesification, city, and country. Appropriate statistical methods should be used, although the biological mechanism should be emphasized. The statistical model, classes, blocks, and experimental unit must be designated. Consultation with a statistician is recommended to prevent any incorrect or inadequate statistical methods.

The symbols/notations are written in italics and are accompanied by a description of the first disclosure. Equations are numbered sequentially written after the equation and in brackets. Descriptions of the equation(s) are written in paragraph. Writing numbers using the US System such as: 1,000,000 represents one million and 2.5 represents two five tenths. The unit system used is SI Unit: cgs (centimeter, gram, second/second).

Each Word of Subheading Begin with Capitalized Letter (12pt, bold, center)

Sub-heading, the first letter for each word should be capitalized, centered, and bold.

Sub subheading.  Only the first word should be capitalized, written at the beginning of the paragraph, bold, and followed by full stop. The following text should be typed double hit from the sub subheading.

 

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION (12pt, bold, center, capital letter)

Data should be presented in Tables or Figures when feasible. There should be no  duplication of data in Tables and Figures. Sufficient and comprehensive data followed with some index of variation (e.g., SD, SE, etc.) and significance level (e.g., P<0.01) should be presented to give a complete information and allow the reader to interpret the results of the experiment. The text should explain or elaborate the tabular data, but numbers should not be repeated extensively within the text.

Tables (12pt, bold, center)

Tables should be prepared using Microsoft Word Table function, select Insert>Table and follow the instruction. Please do not separate cells into rows and columns by using tabs and spaces.

Tables should be clear and stand alone giving complete information although without text.  The title should be brief and clear. Only the initial word is capitalized, typed above the table, and numbered using Arabic number. The title for socio-economic should be completed with research time and location. Footnote for statistical analysis should be written: “Means in the same column/row with different superscript differ significantly (P<0.05) or (P<0.01)”. Each abbreviation or symbols should be described in footnote.

Variation.  Data should be completed with standard deviation (SD), standard error (SE), or coefficient of variation (CV) to figure out its variation.

Figures (12pt, bold, center)

Title should be brief and clear, located under the Figure or Graph. Only the initial word is capitalized and numbered with Arabic number. Symbols and description of Figure and Graph should be defined in title. Figure and Graph must have good resolution. Bar charts should be made in 2-dimension in the simplest shading, not a solid or block shading.

Discussion should be consistent and should interpret the results clearly and concisely, address biological mechanism and their significance, supported with suitable literatures. The discussion should show relevance between the results and the field of investigation and/ or hypotheses.

References (12pt, bold, center)

References should be the last 10 year publication, with minimum 80% of journal. Citing a citation, such as Morris in Miftah et al. (2008), and using ‘Anonym’ as reference are not allowed. Authors should not use proceeding, thesis, and dissertation as references. The electronic publications are only allowed to use, if those are published by a competent source, such as journal and government or private institution, and the accessed date should be put after the last sentence. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa).

References should be listed alphabetically by the author(s) last name(s) and the year of publication. For books, the order is all author(s), year, title of the book, name and place of publisher. For journals, author(s), year, title of the article(s), journal name, volume and number of publication, and pages. Journals should be abbreviated according to the conventional abbreviation used by Pubmed (ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/pubmed/J_Entrez.txt). For article in a book: author(s), year, title of the article, editor(s), book title, name and place of publisher.

CONCLUSION (12pt, bold, center, capital letter)

Conclusion should be written briefly in single paragraph, but reflects the experimental results obtained. Implication of results should be added stating what the findings of this research imply for agriculture and biosystem engineering field.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT (12pt, bold, center, capital letter)

Acknowledgement (if any) to person(s) or institution(s) who help the experiment should be stated.

  1. Manuscript Processing Charges

Each manuscript that passes the review process and will be published to the Agricultural Engineering Journal will be subject to Article Processing Charges (APC) of Rp. 1.000.000,- (One Million Rupiah). This fee must be paid by the author so that the manuscript can be published in the Agricultural Engineering Journal. This APC is paid by transfer to BRI account No. 0595-01-003461-50-9 a/n Journal of Agricultural Engineering and proof of transfer emailed to jtep@apps.ipb.ac.id. The delay in payment of this APC will cause a delay in the loading of manuscripts in the Agricultural Engineering Journal in the next issue.
