Author Guidelines

Types of paper

Original Research Article and Review Article contributions will be considered for publication. Research Article: Present an original and significant major in sciences, as well as a thorough discussion of the findings. The article is organized as follows: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, and References. This article should be typed in 10 pages or less (including figures and tables). A survey, evaluation, and critical interpretation of recent research, data, and concepts in dryland agriculture. The editor-in-chief is the review article. When submitting your article, please ensure that you select the appropriate article from the list of options.



This journal accepts submissions entirely online. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and revision requests, is handled via e-mail and the author's website. Authors must register or login in order for those who have signed up to make submissions. The submission guidelines and article template can be found here. If you have any submission issues, please contact technical support at; phone and WhatsApp: +62xxxxxxxxx. Additional information, tables, and figures with captions may be presented within the main body of the manuscript; if so, figures should also be uploaded as high resolution files. Non-English articles must include the title, author, abstract, and keywords in English.


Article Structure


Title, concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. Author names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.



A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.Abstract should commence with a clear introduction of two or three sentences mentioning background of research. Subsequently, state the general problem of the research, followed by results/main findings that directly answer the problem. Give one or two sentence(s) to discuss the finding(s) or prospective(s).



Authors are invited to submit maximum 6 keywords associated with their paper.



State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.Give a description (local and scientific name) of the studied organism(s).



Mention when and where research is conducted. Provide sufficient detail to allow the method to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Please describe whether the study is experimental or exploration.



Results should be clear and concise. State the obtained results based on the methods. Do not present the same data in both table and graph format. Means should be accompanied by standard deviation. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Discuss your data by comparing the current reported data with previous results, but avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. Highlight similarities, as well as differences, and the uniqueness of your findings.



End the discussion by giving a conclusion and future research in that particular topic.



Text: All citations in the text should refer to:

1. Single author: the author's name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication;

2. Two authors: both authors' names and the year of publication;

3. Three or more authors: first author's name followed by 'et al.' and the year of publication.

Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references should be listed first alphabetically, then chronologically.

List: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., placed after the year of publication.

The bibliography must contain references to libraries originating from primary sources (scientific journals and accounting for at least 80% of the entire bibliography) published in the last 10 (ten) years. Each manuscript does not contain at most 10 (ten) references and the writing is sorted alphabetically. References or sites are written in the description/text. It is recommended to use bibliography management applications such as Mendeley, Zotero, and Endnote.


Additional Guidelines

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
