Jurnal Pendidikan Keperawatan Indonesia  (e-ISSN 2477-3743), an international open access and double-blind peer-reviewed journal published by Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia. JPKI aims to serve original articles on the latest issues and trends in high-quality research and theoretical position papers concerning preserves and in-service education of nursing sciences. The article offers ways to improve nursing science, especially in nursing education. JPKI is a bilingual journal issued in June and December.

The editors welcome submissions of papers describing recent theoretical and experimental research related to nursing and health.



Newly submitted manuscripts will first be screened by the Chief in Editors. Manuscripts may be rejected at this stage if they are of insufficient quality, outside the scope of the journal, have high similarity screening (max 25 %) or they are considered not original. Manuscripts that do meet the minimal requirements for publication are assigned to one of the Section Editors, who sends the manuscript out for review. Reviewers are selected by the Section Editors on the basis of their expertise, their availability, and such as to avoid possible conflicts of interest. A reviewer is asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound, original, relevant, clear, whether it correctly references previous work, and whether it falls within the scope of the journal.

All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two anonymous referees. The acceptance or rejection of articles will be decided by the editorial boards based on the review results supplied by the reviewers. There are no communications between authors and editors concerning the rejection decision. Authors whose papers are rejected will be informed with the reasons of the rejection.

In short, the steps are:

1.    Manuscript Submission (by author)

2.     Manuscript Check and Selection (by chief editor and editors) . Editors have a right to directly accept, reject, or review.

3.    Manuscript Reviewing Process (by reviewers) 

4.     Notification of Manuscript Acceptance, Revision, or Declined (by editor to author based on reviewers comments) 

5.    Paper Revision (by author).

6.     Revision Submission based on Reviewer Suggestion (by author) with similar flow to point number 1.

7.    If reviewer seems to be satisfied with revision, notification for acceptance (by editor).

8.    Galley proof and publishing process. 



The journal editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision. The following are the most common decisions:

1.    accept without any changes (accepted): the journal will publish the paper in its original form

2.     accept with minor revisions (accepted): the journal will publish the paper and asks the author to make small corrections

3.     accept after major revisions (conditional acceptance ): the journal will publish the paper provided the authors make the changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors

4.     revise and resubmit (conditional declined): the journal is willing to reconsider the paper in another round of decision making after the authors make major changes

5.  reject the paper (outright declined): the journal will not publish the paper or reconsider it even if the authors make major revisions.

The initial review will spent at least 1 month and the peer review process at least 3 month. Article sent for revision to the authors does not guarantee that paper will be accepted. Authors are given approximately 10 days to returns their revised manuscript. Note that if the revision is not received within 1 month, the editorial office will decide to rejected.


Please prepare your manuscript following the instructions for authors given below before submitting it online at below. Basically, the JPKI journal follows the author guidelines of Elseiver at Elseiver Author Guidelines. Manuscripts submitted for publication in JPKI should be between 3,000 and 6,000 words or between 8 and 16 pages long including tables and figures using Times New Roman font size 12 with 1.15 spacing.  Margin for left, right, top and bottom should be 2.54(1 inch).


All article submitted must be written in English language. The editorial office does not offer major copyediting service; therefore it is the authors responsibility to ensure that the English language is thoroughly revised before submitting the work for publication.

 Use of word processing software

 It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used. The text should be in single-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the article. In particular, do not use the word processor's options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use boldface, italics, subscripts, superscripts, etc. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns. The electronic text should be prepared in a way very similar to that of conventional manuscripts. Note that source files of figures, tables and text graphics will be required whether or not you embed your figures in the text. See also the section on Electronic artwork. To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor.


 Title           : Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author names and affiliations: Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full address of each affiliation, including the name of department, name of faculty, name of university, state, the country name.

Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.


 A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. The abstract should maintain a maximum of 300 words.


 Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes. 


This should be brief and indicates aim of the study and the essential back ground information. Introduction should clearly state the hypothesis or purpose statement, how and why the purpose or hypothesis was developed and why the author deems it important.


Please provide concise but complete information about the material and the analytical, statistical and experimental procedures used. This part should be as clear as possible to enable other scientists to repeat the research presented. The use of subheadings to divide the text is encouraged.


In case of animal/human experiments or clinical trials authors must give the details of ethical approval. Human experiments: All work must be conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki. Papers describing experimental work on human participants which carries a risk of harm must include (1) statement that the experiments were conducted with the understanding and the consent of each participant, and (2) a statement that the responsible, ethical committee has approved the experiments. Clinical trials and behavioral evaluations Authors reporting results of randomized controlled trials should include with their submission a complete checklist from the CONSORT statement, see For behavioral and public health evaluations involving non-randomized designs, authors should include with their submission a complete checklist from the TREND statement, see Am J Public Health 2004; 94:361-366 or


Data acquired from the research with appropriate statistical analysis described in the methods section should be included in this section. In this part, the same data/ information given in a table must not be repeated in a figure, or vice versa. Tables and Figures should be self explanatory and it is not acceptable to repeat extensively the numerals from tables into text and give lengthy and unnecessary explanations of the Tables and Figures.

Tables & Figures

Tables and figures should be embedded in the text. Tables should be created in open form with a word processor and cited consecutively in the text.  Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on separate page(s) at the end. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules.

To ensure the highest print quality, your figures must be submitted in TIF format with minimum 300 dpi or higher resolutions. Captions/legends will be placed below figures and adjusted to 8-10 font size.


Discussion should relate the results to current understanding of the scientific problems being investigated in the field. This 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.


This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work highlighting its importance and relevance.


All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references and may include supporting grants, presentations, and so forth.

List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proofreading the article, etc.)



Reference should be cited in the text by author’s last name & year. Single author: the author's name (without initials) and the year of publication eg. (Martin, 2009). Two authors: Last name of both the authors and year of publication should be used i.e. (Mishra and Ahmed, 2010). Three or more authors: first author's name followed by et al and year of publication i.e. (Das et al., 2012). The literature listed in the References contains only the sources referenced or included in the article. We recommend preparing the references with a bibliography software package, such as Mendeley, EndNote, Reference Manager or Zotero to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references. Referral sources should provide 80% of journal articles, proceedings, or research results from the last five years. Writing techniques bibliography, using the system cites APA (American Psychological Association) Style and the 6th edition. Reference should be arranged in alphabetical order and further shorted in chronological manner using Reference manager (i.e. Mendeley) based on the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association(2010) 6th edition.
