Author Guidelines

Indonesian Physical Review (IPR) will publish the only paper strictly following IPR guidelines and manuscript preparation. All submitted manu-scripts are going through a double-blind peer review process.

The aims of this journal is to provide a venue for academicians and researchers for publishing the original research articles or review articles. The scope of the articles published in this journal deal with a board range of topics, including: Theoretical and Computational Physics; Material Physics : Material Fabrication, Characteristics of Material and Functional Properties of Materials; Instrumentation and Biophysics : Instrumentation and measurement techniques, Data acquisition systems and real time measurements. Computational intelligence techniques in instrumentation, Instrumentation and methodologies for medical and healthcare system, Sensor technologies, Signal processing techniques; Geophysics : Geodynamics, Seismology, Volcanology, G & G Methods, Near Surface, Geophysics, Energy Resources Management ; Optics : optical and photonic materials, quantum optics, adaptive optics, optometry, lasers, spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, ultrafast optics, imaging and Image processing, metamaterials and structured photonic materials, fiber optics technology. biomedical optics, optical sensors, vision and color, and opto-mechatronics.

Review Policy

Manuscripts submitted will be subject to re-views by an editorial team board and a peer reviewer who are experts and familiar with the relevant field of research. After review process, the Managing Editor will inform the authors of the acceptance, rejection or necessity of revision of the manuscript.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Paper Format

The word limit for the submission is 4000-10000 words (including of abstract). The sequence of manuscripts following: Title; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction; Theory or Calculation (if any); Experimental Methods; Result and Discussion; Conclusion; Acknowledgment; and References.


Title of articles are written with Book Antiqua Bold (16 pt) and preferably not more than 14 words. Author(s) name, affiliations and e-mail


Abstract should be no longer than 400 words, giving a brief summary of the content and conclusions. Do not include artwork, tables, elaborate equations or references.


Keywords arranged by alphabetically and should have at least two keywords and maximum five keywords separated by a semicolon (;).


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

Theory and Calculation (if any)

A theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis. 

Experimental Methods

Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be  indicated by a reference. Only relevant modifications should be described.

Results and Discussion

Results should be clear and concise. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.


The conclusion section is required. It contains the main points of the article. It should not replicate the abstract, but might elaborate the significant results, possible applications and extensions of the work.


Acknowledgment is recommended to be given to persons or organizations helping the authors in many ways. Sponsor and financial support acknowledgments may be placed in this section. Use the singular heading even if you have many acknowledgments.


References at the end of the manuscript should be written in APA (American Psycho-logical Association) Citation Style. Please use Reference Manager Applications like EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, etc. (we suggest Mendeley). All publications cited in the text should be included as a list of Bibliography, arranged alphabetically by author.

References should be written as the following examples.

Reference numbers should be indicated in the text by square brackets, e.g. [1], or [1,3], or [1-3]. List of references should be numbered at the end of the paper, according to their appearance in the text.Titles of non-English reference should be translated into English, ended by original language in parenthesis (in Japanese, etc.).


The article should be written in Book Antiqua 11, MS Words for Windows of A4 paper. A template of the article can be downloaded here.


SI units should be used throughout but other established units may be included in the brackets. Abbreviations should be defined when they first appear in the text. Equations should be numbered at the right side of the paper in ordinary bracket (no.). Use either the Microsoft Equation Editor or the MathType add-on ( for equations in your paper (Insert | Object | Create New | Microsoft Equation or MathType Equation). “Float over text” should not be selected.

Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush with the right margin, as in (1). First, use the equation editor to create the equation. Then, select the “Equation” markup style. Press the tab key and write the equation number in parentheses. To make your equations more compact, you may use the solidus (/), the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Use parentheses to avoid ambiguities in denominators. 


Figures and tables should be numbered using Arabic numerals and be kept to the minimum consistent with clear presentation of the work reported. Numbers and titles of figures should be placed below the figures, while those of tables should be placed above.

Because IPR will do the final formatting of your paper, you do not need to position figures and tables at the top and bottom of each column. In fact, all figures, figure captions, and tables can be at the end of the paper. Large figures and tables may span both columns. Place figure captions below the figures; place table titles above the tables. If your figure has two parts, include the labels “(a)” and “(b)” as part of the artwork. Please verify that the figures and tables you mention in the text actually exist. Please do not include captions as part of the figures. Do not put captions in “text boxes” linked to the figures. Do not put borders around the outside of your figures. Use the abbreviation “Fig.” except at the beginning of a sentence should use “Figure”. Do not abbreviate “Table.” Tables are numbered with Roman numerals. Color printing of figures is available. Do not use color unless it is necessary for the proper interpretation of your figures.

Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Use words rather than symbols. For example, write the quantity “Magnetization,” or “Magnetization M,” not just “M.” Put units in parentheses. Do not label axes only with units. For example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or “Magnetization (Am-1),” not just “A/m.” Do not label axes with a ratio of quantities and units. For example, write “Temperature (K),” not “Temperature/K.”

Multipliers can be especially confusing. Write “Magnetization (kA/m)” or “Magnetization (103 A/m).” Figure labels should be legible, 9 point type.

Examples of a figure and a table are as follows:

Figure 1. Numerical Error in Eigen as a Fuction for (a) Ground State (Circle) and (b) First Excited State (Squares). Line are Regression Lines.

Table 1. Numerical eigen-energies for a particle in an infinite square well potential computed by the FDTD method (standar scheme), the NSFDTD method, the Numerov-FDTD method and Numerov-NSFDTD (modified Numerov) are compared with the exact values.
