2. Article Focus and Scope

Jurnal Arsip Rekayasa Sipil dan Perencanaan (Journal of Archive in Civil Engineering and Planning) is a peer-reviewed journal published four times a year (March, June, September, and December) that publishes reviewed articles which contribute new results in all areas of the Civil Engineering and Planning. The journal is devoted to the publication of high-quality papers on theoretical and practical aspects of Civil Engineering and Planning. The aim of this journal is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to focus on Civil Engineering and Planning advancements and establishing new collaborations in these areas. Theoretical papers, practice-oriented papers including case studies, state-of-the-art reviews are all welcomed and encouraged for the advance of science and engineering in Civil Engineering and Planning.

Theoretical papers or research papers should report the results of original research. The material should not have been previously published elsewhere. Articles are expected to contribute new information (e.g. novel methods of analysis with added new insights and impacts) to the knowledge in the field of sciences and technology in general. Practice-oriented papers or technical papers are used to communicate results which represent a breakthrough or startling new discovery, and which should, therefore, be published quickly. They should not be used for preliminary results. Papers must contain sufficient data to establish that the research has achieved reliable and significant results. The Technical Papers should present new methods and procedures for either research methodology or culture-related techniques.

3. Writing styles and Format

Manuscripts must be written in both Bahasa Indonesia and standard English. All submissions must describe original research, currently under review, or not published for another conference or journal. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was not originally copyrighted and if it has been completely re-written. Manuscripts should be of a sufficient academic standard and should be of interest to educators, researchers, and practitioners.

 The whole manuscript should be between 6000-9000 words. Manuscripts must be typed, 1.15 spaced, and use an 11 point of Time New Roman. Margins should be at least 2.5 cm or 1 inch all around.

Authors must use SI units and internationally recognized terminology and symbols. The reference must be provided at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. All graphics and figures (if any) must be of good quality and should be attached directly to the body of the paper. Manuscripts should be prepared in A4 (210mm x 297mm) with 1.15 spaced. The JARSP format is strictly used and use the sample of the paper for the simple guideline (download template here).

A manuscript should be typed double-spaced, with a margin 1.15 inch on all sides. The length of the paper should be between 5,000 and 8,000 words including text, tables, figures, references, and appendices. The manuscript should be typed with Times New Roman 12 pt. font, one column. The title should not exceed 20 words. The right-hand margin should have justified alignment.

Presented tables and figures within the manuscript, not at the end of the manuscript. Please note that the manuscript will be published in black and white (print), although the online version will contain the colorful figures (if any).

4. Manuscript Outline

A manuscript submitted should normally consist of the following sections and should follow the Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion system:

  • An abstract (between 250 -300 words) with four to six keywords
  • An introduction (must be described about state of art, novelty, purpose of study and paper outline)
  •  A literature review and hypothesis development section (if any))
  • A research method including data collection and analysis
  • A result and discussion
  • A conclusion
  • The acknowledgment section (if any).
  • References

5. References

References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citations in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication. Authors are encouraged to use a reference manager and citation generator, for example, Mendeley, Endnote, etc. The following are some examples of reference format.

6. Article Processing Charge

The JARSP does not charge for the cost of article submission however there is the article publication charge (APC) for authors from Indonesia (IDR. 500,000) to cover publication costs. If you do not have funds to pay such fees, you will have an opportunity to waive each fee.

7. Author Ethics

Data access and retention, and Reporting standards

Authors may be asked to provide the raw data of their study together with the manuscript for editorial review and should be prepared to make the data publicly available if practicable. In any event, authors should ensure accessibility of such data to other competent professionals for at least ten years after publication (preferably via an institutional or subject-based data repository or other data center), provided that the confidentiality of the participants can be protected and legal rights concerning proprietary data do not preclude their release. Authors of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed and the results, followed by an objective discussion of the significance of the work. The manuscript should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Review articles should be accurate, objective, and comprehensive, while editorial 'opinion' or perspective pieces should be clearly identified as such. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

Plagiarism, Originality and concurrent submission/publication

Authors should ensure that they have written and submit only entirely original works, and if they have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited. Publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the work reported in the manuscript should also be cited. Plagiarism takes many forms, from "passing off" another's paper as the author's own, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism, in all its forms, constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Papers describing essentially the same research should not be published in more than one journal or primary publication. Hence, authors should not submit for consideration a manuscript that has already been published in another journal. Submission of a manuscript concurrently to more than one journal is unethical publishing behavior and unacceptable.

The publication of some kinds of articles (such as clinical guidelines, translations) in more than one journal is sometimes justifiable, provided that certain conditions are met. The authors and editors of the journals concerned must agree to the secondary publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the primary document. The primary reference must be cited in the secondary publication.

Authorship of the manuscript

Only persons who meet these authorship criteria should be listed as authors in the manuscript as they must be able to take public responsibility for the content: (i) made significant contributions to the conception, design, execution, data acquisition, or analysis/interpretation of the study; and (ii) drafted the manuscript or revised it critically for important intellectual content; and (iii) have seen and approved the final version of the paper and agreed to its submission for publication. All persons who made substantial contributions to the work reported in the manuscript (such as technical help, writing and editing assistance, general support) but who do not meet the criteria for authorship must not be listed as an author, but should be acknowledged in the "Acknowledgements" section after their written permission to be named as been obtained. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list and verify that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the manuscript and agreed to its submission for publication.
