As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors who do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced, uses a 10-point font, employs italics rather than underlining (except with URL addresses), and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
  1. General Author Guidelines

All manuscripts must be submitted to Jurnal Metris Editorial Office using Online Submission at E-Journal portal address:

Where the author registers as an Author in an open journal system.

Three manuscripts are acceptable for publication: an original research paper, a review paper, and a case study.

Research paper

The work that reports an in-depth study and is categorized as the main literature is called an original research paper. The structure includes an introduction, background problems, methodology, interpretation of findings, and discussion sections.

Review article

A review paper is an article that offers a current report on the state of affairs pertaining to specific significant issues in a scope journal. It provides an outline of the future and talks about earlier developments on the subject. A review article is typically lengthy, depending on the case under consideration. 

Case study

An essay written by the author(s) and published in the scope journal that provides specifics of unique cases is called a case study. These are often the cases that have a major impact on the field's body of knowledge. The indicators, symptoms, diagnosis, and problem-solving techniques should all be covered in this article.

  1. Manuscript Template

The manuscript should be prepared according to the following author guidelines in the MS Word.

The template is available for download at this link. [Download Template]


The manuscript should be uploaded to the Jurnal Metris system and arranged in Jurnal Metris standard format: Title, Authors, Address and Email, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methods, Result and Discussion, Conclusion, and References. For optional: Data Availability, Declarations, and Acknowledgment.

Typed in A4 size, in a single column, one space line, 10-point Times New Roman font. The maximum paper length is 15 pages. The author writes the manuscript in one-column format. The Jurnal Metris Design Editor will create formatting in two columns.

Manuscript Title

A Title Is Fewest Possible Words, Accurately Describe The Content (Maximum 15 Word, Times New Roman 18, Don’t Abbreviation)


The manuscript has the main author and co-authors with the full name of the author and co-authors (no abbreviation), includes an address (es) and email addresses clearly.


The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, provide a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be a maximum of 250 words in length. The abstract should be written in English and in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used, and abbreviations should be avoided. No literature should be cited.


The keywords should be avoiding 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 more than 5 words or phrases.

  1. Introduction

The Introduction should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research which is innovation. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

  1. Methodology

Describe the research process, research design, and research chronology. To ensure that the explanation is accepted by science, the research course description needs to be backed up by references. A Theory section establishes the groundwork for future research and should build upon the background information already covered in the Introduction rather than restating it. A section on calculations shows how a theoretical foundation is developed practically.

  1. Results and Discussion

Research findings are explained, and a thorough discussion is also provided. Results can be shown in ways that are easy for the reader to understand, such as tables, graphs, and figures. There are multiple sub-chapters in which to examine this. The current international system should be adhered to when choosing the unit of measurement. Every figure and table in the text should be active and editable by the editor, and they should be presented individually at the end of each page.

  1. Conclusion

The conclusion should be explained clearly. The suggestion placed after the conclusion contains a recommendation on the research done or an input that can be used directly by the consumer.


The styles of references and citations should follow the Name-Years System (Harvard System). All references should be to the most pertinent and up-to-date sources. Please use a consistent format for references. Please double-check: every citation in the text must match up to an entry in the reference list and vice-versa. References must always be given in sufficient detail for the reader to locate the work cited (see below for formats).

All figures should be embedded correctly positioned within your Word files and supplied as separate graphics files in their original formats. EPS, TIFF, or PSD formats are preferred. Use a minimum of 300 dpi.

Figures should appear in numerical order, be described in the body of the text, and be positioned close to where they are first cited. Each figure should have a caption that describes the illustration, which can be understood independently of the main text. The caption should be given in the text and not on the figure itself.

Because figures may be resized in production, please use scale bars and not magnification factors.


Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Number tables consecutively by their appearance in the text and place any table notes above the table body. Be sparing in tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical lines.

Make sure all figures and tables will fit inside the text area.

  1. Reviewing of manuscripts

One peer-reviewer independently reviews every submitted paper. The publication, amendment, or rejection decision is based upon the reviewer’s reports/recommendations and made by the Editor. If the reviewer considers a manuscript unsuitable for publication in this journal, a statement explaining the basis for the decision will be sent to the authors.

  1. Revision of manuscripts

Manuscripts sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. Revised manuscripts can be sent to the editorial office through the Online Submission Interface. The revised manuscripts returned later than three months will be considered as new submissions. Because the review process is a blind review, the author's identity is removed when the manuscript is sent to the reviewer. When the Author sends a revision, the Author must re-complete the name and affiliation of the Author(s).
