Writing Rules of Journal

-All submissions to our journal are screened using the Turnitin plagiarism program.-

1-Submissions must be formatted using the provided template. The template is available at the end of the page, and the work must be written on the template (the template is shared in the link).

2-Submitted papers must not contain any information that identifies the author(s); otherwise, the paper will not be considered and will be returned. Once the process is completed, the information will be added by the editors.

3-Articles submitted to the journal, including notes, tables, and figures, should be between 2,500 and 10,000 words.

4-The articles submitted by the author(s) for publication should not violate the copyright of any individual, entity, or third party.

5-The authors are responsible for adhering to ethical rules and all liabilities of the articles.

6- In such cases, the authors are also responsible for compensating any necessary financial damages, litigation, and defense costs.

7-The title and abstract sections must be in both Turkish and English. Abstracts should be between 150-300 words. Additionally, 3-5 keywords in both Turkish and English should be included. Keywords should be selected to define the content of the work and to be found in searches. To ensure standardization in abstracts, the content should mention the topic, purpose, significance, contribution, method, findings, and sources.

8-Articles submitted to the journal must not have been published elsewhere before or be under consideration for publication elsewhere simultaneously. Symposium papers that have not been published in full-text proceedings can be published, provided that this situation and derivation from a thesis are stated.

9-Articles should be submitted via the Article Tracking System, through a personal page accessed with an email address and password. After submission, authors can track the peer review process from the same page. At this stage, authors should wait for reports from the reviewers to make corrections. If the reviewers request corrections, the author should upload the revised or corrected version of the work to the page containing the reviewer's report, and this process can only be done once.

10-Articles should be submitted in accordance with the writing rules available in the system. Otherwise, the peer review process cannot be initiated for articles that do not conform to the template.

11-With the submission of the article to the journal, a "Similarity Report" and "Ethics Committee Declaration" should also be uploaded to the system. In studies where ethics committee approval is not required, the author should state and sign that ethics committee approval is not necessary and upload it to the system. The similarity rate of the article is limited to 20%, including footnotes (excluding the bibliography).
