Selamat pagi dok, berikut saya cantumkan salinan manuscript preparation guide dari MEAJO
beserta checklist-nya yang saya kutip dari petunjuk di situs MEAJO.
Jurnalnya sudah saya sesuaikan dengan petunjuk tersebut dan saya highlight (bold dan
warna merah) petunjuk yang kiranya penting dalam penyuntingan tersebut.
Saya sudah menghapus sitasi dan daftar pustaka setelah nomor 25 dan terasa mengganjal
karena sebelumnya penulis menggunakan sistem penulisan referensi Harvard. Saya juga
mohon bimbingan untuk penulisan daftar pustaka no. 7 (chapter dalam buku), no. 13 (buku)
dan no. 20 (tesis).
Terdapat ketentuan: Avoid using sub-titles and bullet text in all sections.
Di dalam jurnal tersebut masih ada subjudul terutama di bagian results dan discussions,
namun saya tidak berani menghapus subjudul tersebut.
Terdapat ketentuan: The references cited in the text should be after punctuation marks, in superscript
with square bracket.

Saya sudah mengubah format sitasinya menggunakan superskrip dan kurung siku sesuai
ketentuan, namun di dalam contoh jurnal-jurnal yang sudah dipublikasikan di MEAJO,
sitasinya tidak menggunakan kurung siku.

Mohon bimbingan dan suntingan selanjutnya dari dokter.

Terima kasih.
