This is the Easy Way to Write an International Journal

This is the Easy Way to Write an International Journal

International journals have a standard writing structure. Usually international journals are written in order from title to reference. However, how to write an easy international journal manuscript does not have to be sequential.

Based on experience, writing international journals sequentially (according to their structure) is not very effective. So we need a strategy on how to make the order of writing this international journal manuscript.

In general, an international journal sequentially consists of:

  • Title
  • Authors
  • Affiliation
  • Abstract
  • Introduction
  • Materials and Method
  • Result
  • Discussion
  • Conclusion
  • Acknowledgments
  • References

The obstacle when writing international journal manuscripts in order according to their structure is the limitation in the content of the journal. The author becomes attached to the title that has been made in advance. As a result, the opportunity to get a source of ideas in solving problems becomes small.

In addition, the process of making journal manuscripts takes longer because they have to synchronize back and forth between the components of the journal's structure.

Then, what is the order of writing an effective international journal manuscript? The following is a personal experience when I write an international journal manuscript.

To make it easy and effective in preparing international journal manuscripts, the following is the order of writing.

1. Materials and Method

This section contains an explanation of your readiness to conduct research. In addition to explaining all research materials and tools, you also need to explain clearly how to conduct research.

Why does this Materials and Method section need to be created first?

An international journal is a scientific article that results from research. Of course this part is the easiest to make.

2. Result

As is the case with Materials and Methods, you certainly already have the results or research results when you are going to make a journal manuscript. It's just that you need to take only part of the research results. It doesn't need to be all, so that the discussion can be in more detail.

This section only contains research data without any analysis. You can write the analysis in the Discussion section. But there are also those who combine Result and Discussion. If they are combined, it means that when displaying the results of the research, it is immediately followed by the analysis.

3. Discussion

This section contains the analysis of research results that can prove the truth of the hypothesis or research objectives. In essence, the Discussion section contains arguments that support the truth of the research results.

4. Conclusion

In addition to answering the hypothesis, this section contains answers to your research objectives. Here you can also state the advantages and disadvantages of the method you used to solve the problem.

5. Introduction

After finishing writing the contents of the journal, now is the time for you to make an Introduction. This introduction contains an introduction for the reader before reading the entire contents of the journal.

Usually the Introduction has the following structure:

  • The significance of your research
  • The results of previous people's research are related to your research
  • Bring up problems that have not been investigated by others
  • Taking the right method in solving these problems

6. References

Some things to consider when making references are:

  • Write down all the references you use. Reference sources that you do not cite would be better if you do not need to cite. Use citation generator software to eliminate errors.
  • Use up-to-date reference sources. At least less than 10 years ago.
  • Use a reference writing style according to the journal. Most journals have different writing styles.

7. Abstract

Abstract is a summary of the contents of a journal that is more informative than the title. In order for readers to understand the entire contents of the journal, abstracts are usually made with the following structure:

How to Choose Scopus Journals to Pass Your Articles

How to Choose Scopus Journals to Pass Your Articles

How to choose a Scopus journal will greatly affect whether or not your manuscript passes. If all this time you've been struggling through the review process which is quite tiring but also not successful, don't despair. This does not mean that your manuscript is not of high quality and has no potential to be published on Scopus. It could be because of the way to choose the Scopus journal that was not shot correctly.

Scopus indexed international journals with qualification 4 (Q4) are not always easy to penetrate. However, not a few Scopus Q4 journals have a great chance of receiving your manuscript.

Indeed, for beginners, to be precise, Scopus Q4, but what kind of Q4 is it? This is what we will discuss in this article.

Tips for Choosing a Scopus Journal

The characteristics of Scopus journals that have a high chance of being penetrated are:

1. Scopus Qualification Journal Q4

Scopus divides the ranking of its journals according to the highest to the lowest rank into 4 sections, namely Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4. It is very appropriate if you are a beginner who has never submitted to a Scopus journal, the target is Scopus Q4.

However, if you feel capable, please choose a higher qualification, for example Q2 or Q3. It is said to be capable if the manuscript you create comes from quality research results with good novelty. In addition, it is also supported by clear research methods and the use of good gamma.
