Online submission

Submissions to YUSTIKA should be through its online submission system. There are no strict formatting requirements for the initial submission, as long as the article structure conforms with our guidelines (see the manuscript structure section below). Manuscripts that advance to the revision stage will then be required to be formatted appropriately (see the formatting section). This enables authors to focus on the scientific content of their manuscript, along with speeding up the article’s processing time.

Author registration. Authors without an YUSTIKA account are required to create an account before beginning their submission. Make sure that the “Author” role is selected in the Role dropdown menu, otherwise you will not be able to proceed with the submission.

Author(s) data. The submitting author is required to complete the author(s) data during the submission. Please ensure that the affiliation addresses are complete and written exactly as they appear on the manuscript.

Manuscript metadata. Please complete at least the following information related to the manuscript:

For commercial sources of the materials, the name of the company, and the town and country in which they are located should be indicated. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference, with only the relevant modifications described here; e.g. “IDT considered as personal of others abuse, it includes skimming, that aims to use the identity data with the intention to commit fraud and or forgery (Sanusi, 2011).”; or “The digital forensic test followed the method of Brenner (2000), with modifications in usage of personal data.”

Authorship should be restricted to those who have contributed significantly to the work by either: conceiving of or designing the study, contributing new methods or models, performing research, analyzing data, or writing the paper.
