TITLE (Times New Roman 14)

The title of the manuscript must be clear and informative and contain the main ideas of the contents of the manuscript. Avoid using abbreviations and formulas in the title.


The abstract must stand alone where the reader must be able to understand the entire contents of the article by reading the abstract. Therefore, the abstract must briefly and clearly contain the objectives, methods, essential findings, and conclusions. Library references, tables, and figures are not permitted in the abstract. The abstract is written after the title in English. The abstract is written in one paragraph without the head title of each chapter (objectives, methods, results, and conclusions). Avoid using abbreviations in the abstract. However, if it is unavoidable, abbreviations must be defined first in the first writing in the abstract as well. Abstract no more than 250 words, including conjunctions.


Keywords must be a standard word chosen from the contents of the article that can reflect the ideas and concepts of the article. Avoid using general keywords. Keywords can be words or phrases. Don't use words in the title as keywords. Keywords will function for indexation of articles to make it easier for readers to access articles. Keywords are 3-5 words or phrases and are written in alphabetical order of the first letter of each word/phrase.


The introduction contains an explanation behind the community service activities. The preliminary includes the background of the studies that have been done previously both by devotees and by other researchers so that they are considered suitable to be applied to community service activities. The introduction contains at least 60% of the total references in the bibliography. The reference referred to in the introduction is the most recent reference about science and technology that will be applied. This is to illustrate the state of the art of science and technology.

State the purpose of the activity based on a clear and sufficient background justification for the analysis of the situation of the partner activity, problems, and solutions. In compiling the introduction, also consider readers who might be unfamiliar with the written field.


The time and place of implementation are written at the beginning of the method, but there is no need to make a specific sub-chapter of time and place. All materials, processes, approaches, and procedures for implementing activities are written concisely and clearly. Subchapters to separate the explanation of methods/approaches/work procedures for some activities can be made in the Method Chapter if needed.


Results and discussion are written in the same chapter. This journal is an applied scientific work so that the results and discussion are based on original research related to community service. The type of research depends on the area and topic of community service (impact of activities, surveys, interviews, questionnaires, experiments/demonstrations, etc.). The results and discussion are based on analysis and interpretation between theory and community service programs. This section can also be supplemented with problems encountered in implementing community service programs related to the implementation of science and technology that is carried out. Results and discussion are presented simultaneously, starting from the main results and supporting results and explained with discussion.The use of measurement units must use international system units. Figures and tables are not placed on the results and discussion, but write the reference figures and tables in the Results and Discussion Chapter. Subchapters to separate the explanation of the results and discussion of several activities can be made in this chapter if needed. Figures and Tables are placed separately at the end of the manuscript after the bibliography with the title/number of images/tables in each picture/table.


Conclusions must be clearly stated. Conclusions are built from the results and discussion. Conclusions can be supplemented with suggestions related to the article.


This chapter is optional, may not exist. Acknowledgments are written for institutions/individuals who have a real role in writing manuscripts and are generally funders.
