History

Jurnal Ilmiah Kesehatan (JIKA) is a peer-reviewed journal. In 2019-2021 JIKA had been published by the Institute for Research and Community Service (LPPM) Akper Yapenas 21 Maros. In 2022, JIKA change publisher to Sarana Ilmu Indonesia (Salnesia). The website changed ojs.yapenas21maros.ac.id/jika to salnesia.id/jika. The reason for the displacement publisher is to further improve the quality of the journal and be consistent and sustainable without problems. Nevertheless, cooperation is still carried out. JIKA is focusing on several issues in the field of health including preventive, promotive, curative, and rehabilitative. The first printed edition was published in April 2013 the system is offline and published three times a year, issued in April, August, and December. In the course of publication, JIKA has undergone a change of manager (Editor), as well as obstacles in its publishing routine. So, JIKA ever did not experience publication from 2016-to 2018. Inspired by the Indonesian journal Volunteers (RJI) with the Online Journal System (OJS) version 3. JIKA initiated to resume re-publication from the August edition of 2019 with the same month issue (April, August, December). Great hope to all of the prospective authors to participate and submit a scientific article on JIKA. Now, JIKA is accredited by the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education of the Republic of Indonesia (RISTEKDIKTI), 158/E/KPT/2021 with a score of SINTA 3
