Finally ‘in layout’ on RioJournal

Another news from our group: a paper is coming up on RioJournal (Research Ideas and Outcomes).

Our bibliometric paper Bibliometric study to assist research topic selection: a case from research design on Jakarta’s groundwater (part 1) has passed technical review and is currently ‘in layout’ phase.

The paper is under `single media publication`. Others would say `brief communication`. It’s a short 1000 words paper containing one figure and one table.

We had a hard but yet great time to squeeze our results to fit in 1000 words. The paper is citing a dataset folder on Figshare, a free repository, hosting our dataset and high resolution images. This technique is fairly new, especially among Indonesian scientists, but a hit in another part of the globe.

Our spirit is far from bragging, but we are here to share our experience and technique. And by the way, part 2 is on its way.

Happy writing. #sharingnotbragging

About the author

My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behavior, especially its interaction with surface water. I use open source apps like R and Python to do the job. In my spare time, I also have a side project to promote open science in Indonesia's research workflow. One of my current focus is promoting INARxiv, as the first preprint server of Indonesia ( and serving as ORCID and OSF ( ambassador. Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming. Blog:, (
