Author Guidelines


Journal Renewable Energy and Mechanics (REM)

  1. Paper Title

Please identify the main issue of the paper. Begin with the subject of the paper and the title should be accurate, specific, and complete. Do not contain infrequently-used abbreviations.

The title of the paper (in English) should be in 14 pt bold font Times New Roman and centered. The title should be single line spacing with 0 pt above and below spacing. The same applied to the title in Indonesian (if using Indonesian), except it uses 12 pt bold and italic font Times New Roman.

  1. Authors Name and Affiliations

Write Author(s) names without a title and professional positions such as Prof, Dr and etc. Always give your First and Last names. Write clear affiliation of all Authors. Affiliation includes a name of department/unit, (faculty), a name of university, address, country. Please indicate Corresponding Author (include email address) by adding an asterisk (*) in superscript behind the name.

Author names should be in 12 pt font Times New Roman with single line spacing with 0 pt above and below. Author addresses are superscripted by numerals and centered over both columns of manuscripts. Author affiliations such as University name / institution / research study / company and address should be in 11 pt italic font Times New Roman.

  1. Abstract

The word “Abstract” should be Capitalized with bold 12 pt font Times New Roman with single line spacing with 0 pt above and below. Abstract should contain summary of the all research (aim, scope, result and conclusion) with maximum 300 words, italic, justified, 12 pt single line spacing. For keywords wrote in italic and then separated using symbol (,) with maximum are 6 words.

  1. Introduction

Authors should provide sufficient background related to their findings and very short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Then authors state the objectives of the work at the end of introduction section.

  1. Figures and Tables

Figures and tables should be originals or sharp prints. Please use the SI set of units as much as possible. Figures and tables should be centered and placed either at the top or at the bottom of the page. Please do not render tables as pictures and please do not use too small font sizes in the illustrations. Please use the following fonts in your illustrations: Gulliver, Symbol, or use fonts that look similar.

If your figures and tables are created in a Microsoft Office application (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) then please supply 'as is' in the native format, too. For the figure, put the caption below each figure such as; Figure 1 Drill bit geometry. As for the table, put the caption above the table, such as : Table 1 Machining’s parameters.

  1. Symbols and units, numbers

If symbols are defined in a nomenclature section, symbols and units should be listed in alphabetical order with their definition and dimensions in SI units. Please use the SI set of units as much as possible. Wherever the application domain uses a different set of units widely, please minimize the use of non-standard units or non-standard symbols for those units. As examples, the use of “a” for the year (annum) is depreciated and the use of “y” is encouraged instead. Similarly, “h” should be used for hours instead of “hr” and “t” instead of “ton” or “tonne”. It is important to take care of the case in which the measurement units are typed. E.g. “Km” does not mean “kilometers”, but “Kelvin-meters”.

 When providing numerical values followed by measurement units, please leave a regular space or non-breaking space between each value and the measurement unit. This also includes percentages and degrees Celsius (e.g. 42 % or 35 %, 234 °C, 504 K). This rule also applies to the unit for a litre, which is recommended to be capital “L”. The authors are encouraged to render the numbers according to the International rules, specifying the dot as a decimal separator and the comma as a thousand separator.

  1. Equations

Make sure that placing and numbering of equations are consistent throughout your manuscript.

Please reference equations in the text by writing: “…. (1). In principle, variables are to be presented in italics.

  1. Concerning references

Please use Reference Manager Applications like EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, etc. Use other published articles in the same journal as models. If you cite using Mendeley please use Elsevier Harvard (With Title) for cite model style of this journal. The minimal number of references at least is 10 and 80 percents of its are in last 10 years of publication (it is strongly recommended to cite previous article in REM).

Recommendations for references are:

  1. Acknowledgements

Collate acknowledgments in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, or proof reading the article, etc.). Acknowledgment can be written in this paper or not. Using 12 pt font Times New Roman with 0 pt on above and below spacings.
