Author Guidelines

Journal of Fisheries and Marine Research is dedicated to publish highest quality research papers and review on all aspects of fisheries and marine science which has not been previously published (either in whole or in part) and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Manuscripts could be written either in Bahasa Indonesia or in English. The manuscripts should be submitted through open journal system of Journal of Fisheries and Marine Research. Journal of Fisheries and Marine Research uses blind reviewing system by at least two reviewers.



Manuscript should present an original and important finding of research in fisheries and marine research. Only limited number of review paper which has significant contribution will be published.

Manuscript Format

Manuscript should be written in 11 point Times New Roman font single space in A4 paper with 3 cm left margin and 2 cm for the other three margins. Page numbers should be located at the bottom right of each page. Total length of the manuscript is approximately 14 pages. For soft copies, we only accept in microsoft word (.doc or .docx) saved in virus free file.

Manuscript should be written in the following order :


Author(s) full name;

Author(s) full address;

Data: phone and E-mail;

Correspondence author

Running title;


Key words;



Materials and Methods;

Results and Discussion;




For manuscript written in Bahasa Indonesia should follow similar arrangement.

Title should be focus and as informative as possible.
Authors should also give a running title, i.e. short title which will be put in the bottom of each pages of the paper.

Author’s Data

Author(s)’s full name (no abbreviation) and author full address, complete with postcode as well as phone and email address, and also correspondence author.


Abstract should be no more than 250 words, to summarize the principal points of the study without reference to the body of the paper. It contains short sentences of introduction, aim of the study, methods, and conclusion. The abstract does not contain references, figures, tables, abbreviation, or acronym. For Bahasa Indonesia papers please provide abstract in English.

Key words: 3-5 words, separated with comma. Key words have to be closely related to the research

Introduction should provide sufficient background information of the research to evaluate the results of the research, but an extensive review of the literature is not needed and in general, no exceed one typed page. The introduction also gives the rationale for and objectives of the study that is being reported and their relationship to earlier work in the field



In this section, author(s) should provide sufficient information to allow another qualified researcher to repeat the experiments that are described in the paper. If the method is categorized as new procedures or refers to published paper which was not readily available for most readers, details methodology should be provided. If any modification being made, then it should be described clearly. Previously published procedures should be cited. The authors should also mentioned scientific name, number of samples and the location of sampling. Sources (company, city, state, or country) of unusual chemicals, bacterial strains, reagents, and equipment must be clearly stated. For those who work with satellite images, please also provide collected ground check data.



Results and discussion should not be separated. State the obtained results based on the used methods. Avoid presentation of raw data as well as double presentation (e.g. table and graph). Every means value of the data should be given standard deviation. All data given in result should be presented in the tables or graph, although some results may be given solely in the text.

Discussion can be done by comparing results/data reported with other research results previously published. It should be focused on the results interpretation rather than repetition of the results.



Based on the findings and discussion, conclusion should be clearly stated. It should be written as paragraph, not as a list.


In this section, author(s) should mention the grant source (Institution as well as year of the contract) and the person to whom the grant was given. Acknowledgement should also be given to those (individual/company/institution) who has contributed to the study especially in  establishing research design, acquisition of data, supplying documents/photographs or analysis and interpretation of data, or who was involved in drafting the manuscript or revising it critically for important intellectual content. If the contribution of an individual quite significant, then he/she should be put as one of the author. Please refer to author(s) contribution form.


References only list the published or accepted material for publication. Accepted article(s) but not yet published should be sent as manuscript appendix. Referring website, personal communications, unpublished data should be incorporated in the text in parentheses. Personal communication need to be written with the initials surname of the source accompanied with the year of the statement, e.g., (Hoegh-Guldberg, 2011, personal communication). Authors should provide proof(s) of the communication such as email, etc.

References are recommended using reference management software i.e. Endnote or Mendeley or Zotero in IEEE style. References should be listed at the end of the paper, and numbered in the order of their appearance in the text. Authors should ensure that every reference in the text appears in the list of references and vice versa. The actual authors can be referred to, but the reference number(s) must always be given. Wikipedia, personal blog, or non-scientific website is not allowed to be taken into account. Primary references should be at least 80% from at least ten references. References should be taken from the late ten years.
