Author Guidelines

JKM, Jurnal Kimia Mulawarman, is a proper channel for the publication of papers in Chemistry and Applied sciences. Manuscripts reporting experimentation or research in field crops will be accepted for review as papers.



  1. The author must attach and submit a letter of approval from the supervisor if the status of S1 / S2 / S3 students. Form Download Here
  2. The author must attach and submit a statement letter not published in another journal until the review process is complete. Form Download Here
  3. BIBLIOGRAPHY may come from various sources: books, documents, theses, dissertations, newspapers, journals, and the internet. Basically, the Kimia Mulawarman Journal bibliography is advisable to use management applications, for example, bibliography with Mendeley,  Zotero, and Endnote  with APA STYLE



An acceptable manuscript will meet the following general criteria: it reports a worthwhile contribution to science, sound methodology was used and is explained with sufficient detail so that other capable scientists could repeat the experiments. Conclusions are supported by data, manuscripts is concise, well written, and understandable.


Author/s are strongly encouraged to use Turnitin as an anti-plagiarism checker before submitting their manuscripts. The maximum similarity index is 20%. Including the proof by attaching plagiarism index checking during submission is mandatory. 


The manuscript should be uploaded to the Journal Kimia Mulawarman website and arranged in Journal standard format, Title, Authors, Address and Email, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Result and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgment, and References. Typed on one side of white paper of A4 size, in a single column, one space line, 11 point Times New Roman font, and should be given line numbers. Margins on all four sides are 2 cm. TEMPLATE MANUSCRIPT HERE


The title of the paper should be concise and informative. Avoid abbreviations and formula where possible. It should be written clearly and concisely describing the contents of the research.


The manuscript has the main author and co-authors with the full name of the author and co-authors (no abbreviation). Affiliation of each authors is written as follows: Department, Faculty, University, Street, District and City, Province, Country, Zip Code

e.g. :
Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Mulawarman University, Samarinda, East Kalimantan, Indonesia.


The abstract comes after the title page of the manuscript. The abstract must be integrated and independent, which consist of an introduction and purpose, methods, results, conclusion, and suggestion. However, the abstract should be written as a single paragraph without these headers. For this reason, References should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential, they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. An abstract must be written using 150 to 250 words that have no reference and accompanying keywords.


The keywords should avoid general and plural terms and multiple concepts. Do not use words or terms in the title as keywords. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes. Keywords should not be more than five words or phrases in alphabetical order.


State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Explain how you addressed the problem and clearly state the aims of your study. As you compose the introduction, think of readers who are not experts in this field. The introduction must be written using 750 to 1000 words


It should mention the time and place of research in the first part. All materials and methods that used such chemicals for analysis, treatment, and experimental design must be stated clearly and briefly. State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lays the foundation for further work. a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis. Materials and methods must be written using 400 to 600 words.


The result and discussion must be written in the same part. They should be presented continuously, from the main result to the supporting results, and equipped with a discussion. The unit of measurement used should follow the prevailing international system. All figures and tables should be placed separately at the end of manuscript pages and active and editable by the editor.


Provide a statement that what is expected, as stated in the "Introduction" chapter, can ultimately result in the "Results and Discussion" chapter, so there is compatibility. Moreover, it can also be added the prospect of developing research results and application prospects of further studies into the next (based on result and discussion).


State the grant source and the person to whom the grant was given. Name the person to help you work.


The author-year notation system is required and completed. All references mentioned should be written down in reference using IEEE and arranged from the first citation in the article with bracket. 40% of all references must be sources published in the past ten years and 60% in less than five years. Unpublished data and personal communication should not be cited as literature citations. “In Press” articles accepted for publication may be cited in references. Include in the citation the journal in which the “in press” article will appear and the publication date if a date is available.
