Result: Write down the important research results descriptively from the variables studied, the results of hypothesis testing (if any) and the interpretation of the results of the analysis and synthesis. This section is the most important element in the abstract, so write results briefly, concisely, informatively, reflecting the objectives achieved from the research that has been carried out.

Instructions for making manuscripts

MKMI follows the structure of the article which consists of Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, and References.


  • The introduction section contains research problems, sufficient theoretical basis, results of review articles, identification of factors that are thought to be related (risk factors) to the problems that occur.
  • The introduction section must explain the concepts contained in the keywords.The author must present several previous research articles that are relevant to the research theme. The author must show what is lacking in the previous research so that this research is important.
  • All article narratives are written in Time New Roman 10 font, 1 spacing. The beginning of the paragraph begins with 5 tapped indent. In one paragraph should consists of at least 2 sentences (main sentence and explanatory sentence).
  • At the end of the introduction, the author needs to clearly state the purpose of the research conducted.
  • The citation style used in this journal is the Vancouver style (numbering).

Materials and Methods

  • This section contains the type and design of the study, population and sample, research variables, data collection techniques or variable measurement, laboratory examination methods (if any), data analysis techniques. Likewise for qualitative or literature review specifications must be explained.
  • Don't forget to enter the location and time of data collection.
  • If any, at the end of this section can be added the number and institution that issued the research ethics clearance letter.

Results and Discussion

  • The results and discussion section contains important research findings which are described in a narrative manner. Interpretation of research data needs to be interpreted so that it becomes information that is easily understood by readers.
  • The narrative in this section should cover all the variables that are of interest to the research. Data processing can be calculated in the form of tables or images so that it is more interesting and easy to understand.
  • Hypothesis testing needs to state what statistical tests are used in the analysis and needs to consistently write down the results in accordance to standardized statistical rules.
  • The data in the table needs to be interpreted and discussed by comparing the research results with the theoretical basis and other similar articles. We prefer the interpretation of the table rather than showing statistical significance, for example, do not mention OR = 2, but are described as follows "Working mothers are twice as likely to breastfeed as mothers who are not working".
  • We remind that the discussion does not repeat the results, let alone mention statistical figures.
  • Every discussion that cites other people's articles must write the reference source using the Vancouver (numbering) system.


Conclusion consists of 1-2 paragraphs, containing narrated important points to be highlighted. If the conclusion consists of several points, then it is written in a narrative manner, for example: This study concludes: 1) ......................, 2) ...................... etc.


Writing references using the Vancouver style, with the following conditions: 1) References are written only those referred to in the manuscript, 2) References to books with the structure: author's name, title of edition (if any, place of publication, publisher, and year) published, 3) References from Scientific Journals with the structure: author's name, article title, journal name, month-year published, volume, number (issue), and the page of the article referred to.

At least 80% references comes from journal articles. On the other hand, using citation manager tools, such as Mendeley, Zotero, EndNote, etc are suggested for authors.
