• Title Concise and informative. Avoid abbreviations and formula where possible.

• Author names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author. Present the authors affiliation addresses below the names.

• Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. 

• Present/permanent address. If an author has moved since the work described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a 'Present address' (or 'Permanent address') may be indicated as a footnote to that author's name.

Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Introduction 
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Methods

Results and Discussion
Discussions should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

For more information about the Citation Style Language, visit http://citationstyles.org.

Reference style

Indonesian Journal of Geology and Mining (Riset Geologi dan Pertambangan) follows the guidelines from Earth and Planetary Science Letters (Elsevier) for its citation and reference style. The style is available in any reference management softwares.

Text: All citations in the text should refer to:

  1. Single author: the author's name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication;
  2. Two authors: both authors' names and the year of publication;
  3. Three or more authors: first author's name followed by "et al." and the year of publication. 
    Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references should be listed first alphabetically, then chronologically. 

Examples: "as demonstrated (Barber and Crow, 2005). Samuel et al. (1997) have recently shown ...."

List: Properly alphabetize your references; write journal names out in full. Remove the numbering from your references. References in the alphabetical list should be in the form of the following example, and individual references must be separated by double line space:
Barber, A.J., Crow, M.J., 2005. Structure and structural history, in: Barber, A.J., Crow, M.J., Milsom, J.S. (Eds.), Sumatra Geology, Resources and Tectonic Evolution, Geological Society Memoir 31. Geological Society, London, pp. 175–233.
