Evaluation Process

  • Editorial Review

    Articles sent to the journal are first reviewed by the Editors and/or co-editors. Studies that are suitable for publication in the journal due to their content, but contain missing documents/errors in the documents that must be sent with the article or contain issues that are not compatible with the journal writing rules in the article content, are sent to the authors with notes on corrections and the lacks regarding the issues stated in the notes are expected to be eliminated. Articles that are not deemed suitable for publication in the journal due to their content, whose correction requests from the Editors and/or co-editors are not fulfilled by the authors, and whose missing issues are not corrected, will be rejected.

    After the editorial review, articles are measured for similarity values and checked for plagiarism. Works that fail to pass the plagiarism check will be rejected.

  • Peer Review

    Articles sent to the journal are evaluated through a "blind referee" process. In order for the article to be accepted into the journal, two referees must express positive opinions. If one of the referees expresses a positive opinion and the other gives a negative one, a third referee is appointed to the article. If the third referee also expresses a negative opinion, the article is returned to the author.

    The identities of the authors and referees are kept confidential to prevent conflict of interest.

Articles that have completed their publication process and have entered the layout phase up to 3 months before the publication of the journal are published in the same issue. This period is April 1 for the July issue and October 1 for the January issue. Only in cases where the minimum article limit is not met, articles that have entered the layout phase after these dates can be included.
