Author Guidelines


Original Article

Original articles are full articles that describe novel work within the journal’s scope with the standard format of Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion, References, and so forth, as further described below.

Review Article

Review articles are critical and novel examinations that provide an overview of a given topic within the journal’s scope. Review articles must be insightful and use appropriate and fully presented evidence; note that exhaustive general summaries will not be published. Standard sections such as Abstract, Introduction, References, and Acknowledgments must be provided, however, the main body of a review article can utilize any consistent and logical heading structure developed by the authors. The length of the main text should be less than 6,000 words.



Envirotek accepts the manuscript in Bahasa or English. Manuscripts should be written in comprehensive and grammatically correct. Authors are strongly encouraged to have their manuscript checked prior to submission. A manuscript with poor grammar quality may be rejected without peer review.

Style and Format

A template for submissions is available at this link. Microsoft Word is recommended for use in preparing manuscripts. To avoid compatibility and readability issues, authors should not change the style, add their own macros, include the revision history, or leave any comments in the final submitted file.


The title should be specific, descriptive, and intelligible to readers outside a specific field. Specialist abbreviations should not be included in the title. The title should be formatted in sentence case.

Authors / Corresponding author

Include the full names of all authors and format in sentence case. Note that the last name listed is most often used as the family name in most databases.


Affiliations include department, university, or organizational affiliation, and the name of the city and country of location. When authors belong to different institutions, their respective addresses are indicated by superscript letters.


The Abstract is vital to attracting interest in your work and should present a compelling and cogent overview of your paper that is accessible to a broader audience. In a maximum of 200 words, it should describe the main objective(s) of the study, a brief methodology, and the most important results and their significance. Please do not cite references in the Abstract.


A maximum of five keywords should be given so that information retrieval systems can better locate an article. Avoid including words already in the title.


The Introduction should describe the context and background of the work to ensure that it is accessible, relevant, and of interest to all the journal’s readers. It should also ensure that the significance of your work can be fully understood. Readers, both inside and outside the specific field, ought to be able to understand the purpose and significance of the study. The problem(s) being addressed must be clearly defined, and a brief review of the key literature can be included. It should conclude with a brief statement of the overall aim(s) of the work.

Materials and Methods

The Materials and Methods section should include the design of the study, the type of materials involved, a clear description of all comparisons, and the analyses used to enable replication by skilled researchers. If materials, methods, and protocols are well established, authors may cite articles in which these protocols are described in detail.

The name of the manufacturer should be accompanied with information on its location (city and country), unless commonly recognized by international readers. For field studies, the study site should be described so that readers who are not familiar with the site can fully understand the issues relevant to it.

Results and Discussion

The Results and Discussion section should adequately detail the results of the experiments and outline the outcomes of the relevant analyses. Interpretations drawn from the results should be provided and used to support the conclusions of the study. The Results and Discussion may be combined into one section or presented separately.


The Conclusions section briefly describes the significance and implications of the work reported. An itemized style using bullet points is acceptable.


The Acknowledgements section should include anyone who contributed substantially to the paper but did not meet the criteria for authorship. Funding sources (including grant numbers) should also be included.


All work cited in the text should be included in the References section. References must always be given in sufficient detail to enable the reader to locate the work cited.

The bibliography is arranged alphabetically by the last name of the first author, using Mendeley's reference software, endnote or the like in the American Physicological Association (APA) 7th edition format.

The number of literary sources in one article is at least twenty (20), with 70% coming from scientific articles published in the last ten (10) years.

In general, if a table is too long to fit one page, the table number and heading should be repeated on the next page before the table is continued. Alternatively, the table may be spread over two consecutive pages (first an even numbered, then an odd-numbered page) turned by 90, without repeating the heading.


Please make sure that the captions are on the same page with the relevant figures and tables. Please keep captions short – taking preferably one line. If a caption is a complete sentence, place a period at the end of it. If not, then place no punctuation at the end.

Figures and captions must be centered. Any word, number, shape and symbol on figures must be discernible when the page zoom level stands at 120%. We suggest that you use one of the following Open Type fonts: Times New Roman, Helvetica, Arial, Cambria, and Symbol, when preparing your figures.


Nomenclature and 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. For example, the use of “a” for 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 “kilometres”, 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 litre, which is recommended to be capital “L”.



MathType is the preferred software for preparing equations and related terms. Simple equations can be prepared using the built-in function of Microsoft Word. Tex format should be avoided.

Equations should be numbered with Arabic numbers, and the equation numbers should appear immediately after each equation as (XX). In the main text or elsewhere, equations should be cited as, e.g., ‘equation (1)’.
