Author Guidelines

Submission Process

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically via the Internet to the Adıyaman University Journal of Science through the online system at:

You will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of the various files. There are no page charges.

Papers are accepted for publication on the understanding that they have not been published and are not going to be considered for publication elsewhere. Authors should certify that neither the manuscript nor its main contents have already been published or submitted for publication in another journal.

Manuscripts may be rejected without peer review by the editors if they do not comply with the instructions to authors or if they are beyond the scope of the journal. After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, i.e. after referee-recommended revisions are complete, the author will not be permitted to make any changes that constitute departures from the manuscript that was accepted by the editor. Before publication, the galley proofs are always sent to the authors for corrections. Mistakes or omissions that occur due to some negligence on our part during final printing will be rectified in an errata section in a later issue. This does not include those errors left uncorrected by the author in the galley proof.

The use of someone else's ideas or words in their original form or slightly changed without a proper citation is considered plagiarism and will not be tolerated. Even if a citation is given, if quotation marks are not placed around words taken directly from another author's work, the author is still guilty of plagiarism. Reuse of the author's own previously published words, with or without a citation, is regarded as self-plagiarism.

Only one article can be published by an author in the same issue.

Preparation of Manuscript

Style and Format:

Manuscripts should be written in English. Manuscripts should be one and half-spaced with 3cm margins on all sides of the page, in Times New Roman font with size 12. Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript as online submission after registration to the Adıyaman University Journal of Science. Microsoft Word (*.doc, *.docx), LaTeX or SW/SWP (*.tex) files can be submitted. There is no page limit. Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be accepted. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. All abbreviations and acronyms should be defined at first mention.

Symbols, Units and Abbreviations:

In general, the journal follows the conventions of Scientific Style and Format, The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers, Council of Science Editors, Reston, VA, USA (7th ed.).

Manuscript Content:

Research articles should be divided into the following sections. Principal sections should be numbered consecutively (1. Introduction, 2. Materials and Methods, etc.) and subsections should be numbered 1.1., 1.2., etc.

Title and Contact Information:

The first page should contain the full title in sentence case the full names (last names fully capitalised) and affiliations of all authors (Department, Faculty, University, City, Country), and the contact e-mail address for the clearly identified corresponding author and all other authors.


The manuscript should contain an abstract with not exceed 300 words. The abstract should be clear and citation-free.


Please provide at least three keywords or phrases to enable retrieval and indexing.

Acknowledgements (If any):

Names of funding organisations should be written.

Tables and Figures:

Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading. Tables should be simple with simple borders and text written as left side.

Each figure can be integrated in the paper body or separately uploaded and should be cited in a consecutive order. Figure widths can be 4-6 inch as 300 dpi.

The labels of the tables and the figures should be clear and informative. The labels are position to below of the figures and to above of the tables.


References must be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the article and numbered in square brackets. Do not use individual sets of brackets for citation numbers that appear together, e.g., [1,5], not [1], [5]. Do not include personal communications, unpublished data, websites, or other unpublished materials as references. Do not write unused references and please avoid unnecessary references. References should be formatted as follows:
