Since Vol. 9, No. 1 of 2020, the bibliography writing system in the Jurnal Teknik Kimia USU has changed from the previous one. Starting from this volume, the bibliography writing system is written in numerical order in citations. The bibliography is written in full consisting of the author's name, the name of the journal or book, the publisher, the name of the city, the year of publication and the pages of the journal/book. Abbreviations of journal names are written with a common abbreviation or in accordance with the journal's initials. To ensure uniformity and facilitate the writing of the bibliography, the authors of this journal should use Mendelay software by choosing the IEEE model. Examples of writing a bibliography can be seen as follows.
