International Journal of Biosciences an Biotechnology (IJBB) (p-ISSN : 2303-3371e-ISSN : 2655-9994) published by Faculty of Agriculture, University of Udayana, Indonesia in collaboration with Asia Oceania Bioscience and Biotechnology Consortium. It publishes articles in the broad areas of Biosciences and Biotechnology, including plant/crop science, agronomy, horticulture, plant breeding, soil plant science, agroforestry, plant protection, biology, animal husbandry, and veterinary. Articles published in the IJBB journal are papers reporting results of original research that it has not been submitted to other journals and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere.  All papers submitted are evaluated by reviewers/experts in the field and subjected to editorial revision. IJBB uses anonymous reviewing, in which the identities of authors and reviewers are kept confidential.

ABSTRACT

The abstract comes after title and author names in the first page of manuscript. Abstract must be integrated and independent which is consisted of introduction and purpose, methods, results, and conclusion. References and non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided. Abstract contained not more than 300 words.

It should be mentioned the period and place of research. All materials and methods that used such chemical for analysis, treatment and experimental design must be stated clearly and briefly. The unit measurement used SI (International Standard Unit) and symbols.  Use slash instead of exponent (e.g. kg/ha). Use words when unit of measure is not involved (e.g. grains per panicle). In the case of range of values, indicate the unit at the end of the range (e.g. 10-15 t/ha). Avoid beginning a sentence with a symbol. Use percent symbol (%) with figures only (e.g. 5%), and spell it out (percent) with written numbers.
