Publication Frequency

MUST publish articles twice a year, i.e., in July and December each volume

Publication fees

This journal charges the following author fees.

Article Submission: 0.00 (USD)

Article Publication: 31.00 (USD)/Rp. 500,000

This fee is required after the manuscript is accepted. The journal charges an article publication fee to support the costs of open dissemination of research results, managing various costs associated with handling and editing submitted manuscripts, and general management and publication of the Journal, authors or author institutions are required to pay a publication fee for each article accepted.

First decision

The editor will evaluate the submitted manuscript first. Submission to the first decision takes 8 days (Median).

Post-review decision

The first review process takes 4 (four) weeks. This means that the author will receive the review results 4 weeks after the submission.


A manuscript that has been submitted and is under initial review cannot be withdrawn. Because manuscript withdrawal wastes valuable resources, editors and referees spend a lot of time processing submitted manuscripts, money, and work invested by the publisher.

The MUST journal has the following policy regarding manuscript withdrawal:

If an author requests a withdrawal of his/her manuscript while the manuscript is still under peer review, the author will be penalized by paying $60 (Rp. 984,000) per manuscript. Authors and their affiliates will be blacklisted from publication in this journal for 3 years if they do not pay the fine. If the author requests a withdrawal of the manuscript, an official letter signed by the corresponding author and the head of the agency must be sent to the Editor-in-Chief.

Authorship of the paper:

The authorship of research publications should accurately reflect individuals' contributions to the work and its reporting. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. Others who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. In cases where major contributors are listed as authors, those who made less substantial or purely technical contributions to the research or to the publication are listed in an acknowledgment section. Authors also ensure that all the authors have seen and agreed to the submitted version of the manuscript and that their names are included as co-authors. The changes in the number of Authorships in our journal are unacceptable.
