Indonesian Journal of Natural Pigments (Indones. J. Nat. Pigm.) is a double-blind international peer-review and open access journal (p-ISSN: 2338-9281, e-ISSN: 2621-4245) covering all aspects of natural pigments including biodiversity of natural pigment resources (isolation and analysis of photosynthetic pigments), pigments for food and healthcare, pigments for energy and pigments for sensors. Manuscript with concern on artificial natural pigments from organic and inorganic compounds for the above applications is also welcome. The journal publishes original research papers (full paper or article) and review articles. The article published in this journal implies that the work described has not been, and will not be published elsewhere, except in the abstract, as part of a lecture, review or academic thesis. Each published article in the Indonesian Journal of Natural Pigments contains a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number with prefix doi: 10.33479/ijnp.
In the second volume and second issue of Indonesian Journal of Natural Pigments, "Carotenoid Production by Rhodosporidium paludigenum Using Cassava Starch Hydrolyzed by Bacillus subtilis as Substrate" has been selected as our journal cover. This research paper has been reported by Warjoto et al. on page 36 (DOI: https://doi.org/10.33479/ijnp.2020.02.2.36). In this article, it was highlighted that three major stages of this study included cassava starch hydrolysis by B. subtilis (a), carotenoid production by R. paludigenum using cassava starch hydrolysate as substrate (b), and carotenoid extraction from the submerged yeast fermentation culture as well as the total carotenoid determination (c). The total carotenoid yield towards biomass was 69.68 ± 0.08 µg/g.
