Pancanaka is a scientific journal published by the National Population and Family Planning Agency Representatives of Yogyakarta Special Region. This journal is published twice a year as a forum to disseminate ideas from the results of studies and research in the field of and/or related to the issue of Population, Family and Human Resources.

The Pancanaka name is taken from the hooves of Bima puppet characters or Werkudara. Pancanaka has a philosophy of its origin, namely as the primacy of science, the position of the nails flanked by the index finger and middle finger can be interpreted as science should not make someone become arrogant or jumawa and not be used to oppress and defame others but must be used for the benefit of the people as a priority. The index finger is a symbol of purpose while the middle finger is a symbol of neutrality or the wisest position, so it can be concluded that "intelligence or science must be controlled wisely and may not make someone proud (the position of the thumb pinched) where the user must be used and useful for the benefit of the people (the primacy of science) ". While the location of the nails on the right and left is a symbol of mastery of good knowledge (right nails) and that can damage the joints of life (nails to the left) must be used wisely.
