Tata Kota dan Daerah (TAKODA) is a peer reviewed scientific journal and published manuscripts in the field of urban and regional planning i.e. regional planning and development, urban studies and design, transportation, environments and settlement, rural studies, and disaster management. Articles must be the results of recently conducted research (not more than 5 years). They must neither be previously nor simultaneously submitted in any journal nor published elsewhere except in a preliminary form. Review papers should be critical analysis and integration of recent advances in an important area of research which can stimulate further research, provide a new approach or new knowledge.
An acceptable manuscript will meet the following general criteria: it reports a worthwhile contribution to science, sound methodology was used and is explained with sufficient detail so that other capable scientists could repeat the experiments. Conclusions are supported by data, manuscript is concise, well written, and understandable.
Manuscripts written in Bahasa Indonesia should have abstract in both English and Bahasa Indonesia. However, any English article is not required to have abstract in Indonesian language.
Manuscript should be uploaded to Tata Kota dan Daerah (TAKODA) system and arranged in Tata Kota dan Daerah (TAKODA) standard format, Title, Authors, Address and Email, Institution, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Result and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgment and References.
The title of the paper should be concise and informative. Avoid abbreviations and formula where possible. It should be written clearly and concisely describing the contents of the research.
Manuscript has main author and co-authors with full name of the author and co-authors (no abbreviation), includes address (es) and email addresses clearly.
The abstract should give readers concise information about the content of the article and indicate the main results obtained and conclusions drawn. The abstract is not part of the text and should be complete in itself; no table numbers, figure numbers, references or displayed mathematical expressions should be included. It should be suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services and should not normally exceed 250 words in a single paragraph. Since contemporary information-retrieval systems rely heavily on the content of titles and abstracts to identify relevant articles in literature searches, great care should be taken in constructing both.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes. Keywords should not more than 5 words or phrases in alphabetical order.
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Explain how you addressed the problem and clearly state the aims of your study. As you compose the introduction, think of readers who are not experts in this field.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
It should be mention time and place of research in first part. All materials and methods that used such chemical for analysis, treatment and experimental design must be stated clearly and briefly. State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lays the foundation for further work. a Calculation sections represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Result and discussion must be written in the same part. They should be presented continuously start from the main result to the supporting results and equipped with a discussion.

Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise.
