INDONESIAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL PATHOLOGY AND MEDICAL LABORATORY receives only original manuscripts. Articles are considered for publication with the condition that they have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. There articles contained all aspects to Clinical Pathology & Laboratory medicine disciplines. Articles can be classified as research reports, case reports and literature reviews, as well as product research that will keep the readers informed of current issues, innovative thinking in Clinical Pathology. They should also support scientific advancement, education and clinical pathologic medical laboratory.


Manuscript should be written in English or Indonesian with efective and academic language. Authors should follow these manuscript preparation guidelines. Notes for the study result manuscript The authors should follow the general direction of manuscripts preparation:

Text. - The introductions include problem's background, the formulation and the purpose of the study a well as the advantage in the future. Should not be an extensive review of the literature, but only of the that portion which pertinent to the purpose of the study and its relationship to work in the same field.


-          Materials and methods, include the explanation of the material and tool which were used, the time, location, technical as well as the trial design. It should be written clearly and in such detail that the work can be duplicated by others. The reference was given for unfamiliar methods.

-          Results must be described concisely, if necessary tables, illustrations (figures, graphs) or photo were included. Text, tables, and figures must be consistent and not repetitious. The results are described by tables or illustration concisely in text. Vertical line should be made as small as possible to enable viewing.

-          Mathematical equations, should be clearly stated. When mathematical symbols are not available on the typewriter (word processor), hand written symbols with soft lead pencil could be used carefully. If it is necessary give explanation with hand's writing (light pencilled). Decimal numbers, should be separated by point (.) for English written manuscript, and be separated by comma (,) for Indonesian written manuscript.

-          Tables, illustration, and photographs, should be cited next in a consecutive order. The titles and detailed explanations of the figures belong in legends for illustrations (figures, graphs) not in the illustrations themselves, with text, the titles should be written concisely and clear.

A drug is first mentioned it should be given the generic or official name, followed in parentheses by chemical formula, only if the structures are not well known and capitalized proprietary names. - Units. Quantitative measurements should be in metric units in the conventional manner. This should be followed when indicated by SI units in parentheses. Exception of pH, gas pressure measurements (PQ2 and Pco2) and osmolarity, where the current used units may be retained. All concentrations should be based on volume per one litre and expressed as mole except in those cases where definite molecular weights have not been established e.g. protein and mixtures where the use SI units optional. Conversion may be carried out using factors presently used enzyme units should be retained Indescribing reagent preparation, weights and volumes should be given in metric unit as at present. Information of all abbreviation or acronyms of terminology should be declared clearly and presented in the footnote not at the title page.

-          The discussion must be restricted to the significant findings presented. Discussion, explaining the meaning of the examination's result, in what way the reported result can solve the problems, differences and equalities with previous study and development possibilities Wide digressions cannot be permitted because of limitation of space. This section should include the conclusion of the reported work and suggestion for further studies if necessary.

-          Conclusion and suggestion should placed in the end of discussion.

-          Acknowledgments should include to all research contributors, prior to references. It can be directed to all persons who assisted, if any, and should be explained as clear as possible.
