Abstract. All articles must contain an abstract. The abstract text should be formatted using 10 point Times or Times New Roman and indented 25 mm from the left margin. Leave 10 mm space after the abstract before you begin the main text of your article, starting on the same page as the abstract. It should be suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services and should not normally exceed 200 words in a single paragraph. Since contemporary information-retrieval systems rely heavily on the content of titles and abstracts to identify relevant articles in literature searches, great care should be taken in constructing both.

  1. Introduction

This section covers the sufficient background information to allow readers outside the field to understand the purpose and significance of the study/manuscript. The problem must be addressed so readers will know the importance. It includes a brief review of other key studies or literatures. State any disagreement or controversies to strengthen your manuscript quality. The aim should be explained in this section. The author should avoid informing the detailed summary results from the cited literatures.


  1. Materials and Methods

This section must provide sufficient detail in order to permit other researchers to fully replicate your study. Specific information and/or procedures for new methods should be included in detail. If the method has been published, the author must indicate the reference literature. Specific information and/or procedures for new methods should be included in detail.


  1. Results and Discussion

This section provides the scientific findings instead of presenting whole/raw data. The discussion should focus on exploring the significance of the work. In general, those sections should describe the results of the experiments, the interpretation of the scientific results, and the conclusions that can be generated. The author may state the weakness of the study here.

All tables and figures must be referred and discussed in the text. The tables and figures have to be numbered and given titles (tables) or captions (figures). All equations must also be numbered. Please consult the author’s guide for more detail.

The author’s guide also contain some guidelines about the formatting. Some of formatting criteria are repeated here, such as:

  • Text should be written with font Times or Times New Roman 11 point
  • The text should be set to single line spacing.
  • Paragraphs should be justified.
  • The first paragraph after a section or subsection heading should not be indented; subsequent paragraphs should be indented by 5 mm.


  1. Conclusion

The conclusion should be written in straightforward style, sharp, and relevant. It must answer the aim and research objectives. The author should state the potential impacts of the study and the potential further research that can be carried out in the future.




(OPTIONAL, no numbering) Those who contributed to the work but do not meet our authorship criteria should be listed in the Acknowledgments with a description of the contribution. This can be for example assistance or encouragement from colleagues, special work by technical staff or financial support from organizations. Authors are responsible for ensuring that anyone named in the Acknowledgments agrees to be named. This template was taken and modify from IOP Science under CC-BY licence (Science, n.d.).


Reference list section is not numbered. At least 40% of total literatures must be below 10 years of publication time (less than 10 years).  In addition, at least 40% of total literatures must be cited from primary literatures sources that presents results of original research in formats such as articles, scientific journal, pre-publication prints of articles, book and conference proceedings. It is highly recommended to use the reference manager to organize the references such as Zotero, Mendeley or Endnote. The reference style used according to Harvard system.

A complete reference should provide the reader with enough information to locate the article concerned, whether published in print or electronic form, and should, depending on the type of reference, consist of:


  • name(s) and initials;
  • date published;
  • title of journal, book or other publication;
  • titles of journal articles may also be included (optional);
  • volume number;
  • editors, if any;
  • town of publication and publisher in parentheses for books;
  • the page numbers.


For ACMIT, please use the Harvard style. You can find below a sample references (should be arranged alphabetically in the list), which can be cited as (Sudirman, et al., 2008) or (Green, et al., 2010) for example. A more complete sample references for different kinds of publications can be seen in the Author’s Guide.
