JKI Call for Short Paper "Demographic Aspect of the Covid-19 Pandemic in Indonesia"

On March 2nd 2020, President Joko Widodo has announced that two Indonesians have tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). It was the first two confirmed cases of the disease in the country with more than 271 million population. One month after the first announcement the number of case fatality rate skyrocketed; more than two hundred people died. Severe consequences of the pandemic depend on demographic, social, economic, cultural and political factors. At the same time mitigation and immediate policies focusing on slowing the spread of the pandemic have significant demographic consequences both in the short and long term. 


Jurnal Kependudukan Indonesia of the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) set up a special collection of manuscripts to address the demographic aspect of COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia. We encourage all COVID-19 submissions and will expedite the publication of accepted manuscripts.


We  are interested in creating a knowledge base of the COVID-19 pandemic consequences in Indonesia through a demographic lens. We expected author contribution by exploring those issues, but not limited to :

  • Contributions of demographic factors (age structure, fertility, mortality) to the outbreak of the COVID-19 
  • Demographic and attitudinal determinants of protective behaviours during COVID-19 
  • Social disparities in exposure, susceptibility, and access to health care in the COVID-19 
  • Revisiting and redefining family life under COVID-19
  • Impact of demographic disparities in COVID-19 measures (sanitation & hygiene, social /physical distancing, quarantine, travel restriction)
  • COVID 19 as a game-changer in the rural and urban dynamics
  • People’s mobility, migration and COVID-19Exploring local and community action in time of the pandemic

  • Proposal to the future development of demographic policies post  COVID-19
