General Rules (Title 12pt bold)

Jurnal presipitasi : Media Komunikasi dan Pengembangan Teknik Lingkungan contains original research, case study, and review article results in the environmental field that have never been published or are being considered for publication in other publications. Original research is the most common type of journal manuscript used to publish full reports of data from research. It may be called an Original Article, Research Article, Research, or just Article, depending on the journal rules. The original research article format is suitable for many different fields and different types of studies. It includes full Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion sections.  Case study article is articles report specific instances of interesting phenomena. A goal of case studies is to make other researchers aware of the possibility that a specific phenomenon might occur. This type of study is often used in medicine to report the occurrence of previously unknown or emerging pathologies. Review article is provide a comprehensive summary of research on a certain topic, and a perspective on the state of the field and where it is heading. They are often written by leaders in a particular discipline after invitation from the editors of a journal. Reviews are often widely read (for example, by researchers looking for a full introduction to a field) and highly cited. Reviews commonly cite approximately 100 primary research articles.Every article received by Jurnal Presipitasi is subject to a management/processing fee. Articles published in Jurnal Presipitasi are articles that have been subjected to peer-review processes. Articles published in the Jurnal Presipitasi are peer-reviewed before being published. The decision to accept whether or not an article is made by the Chief Editor in the Editor's Board Session forum is based on recommendations or comments from peer-reviewers.

The title of the article must be written briefly and clearly, and it must indicate exactly the problem to be raised, not to allow a variety of interpretations, written entirely in capital letters symmetrically. Article titles may not contain abbreviations that are not commonly used. First state the main idea of the new article followed by another explanation.
