As a legal state based on Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution, Indonesia presents every person with legal objectives such as certainty, safety, and legal protection. The necessity for authentic documented evidence regarding acts, agreements, decisions, and legal events made by the public in front of or by authorized officials is one manifestation of the creation of these three legal aims. The authorized official is a notary, which is an official who practises a profession and provides legal services to the public with the purpose of promoting safety and providing legal certainty.

Today's increasingly contentious behavior among Indonesians requires evidence—which is no longer the burden of proof for the parties involved, but rather the contribution of significant institutions—in the form of authentic deeds, as evidence of legal actions or requirements demanding certainty of law.

Being able to validate a legal action or present the suppoting data is a respectable and honorable profession for a notary. If this line of work is performed in an approach that addresses the needs of society and the facts, including the notary's role in educating the parties regarding an agreement, then it ought to be considered a noble one (officium). It is fundamental that the academic community maintain the respected profession of notarial work by disseminating the work that notaries do in the course of upholding the law. A scientific study that is accessible for reading and provides academic insight about the nature and methods of this profession's activity in Indonesia will oversee monitoring in the form of a scientific journal.
