Author Guidelines

Publication Principles
Academic impartiality and scientific quality are the most important criteria when evaluating articles submitted to the journal. The authors are assumed to acknowledge that the manuscripts they write for the journal are authentic and have never been published previously even in another language or have not been submitted for publication elsewhere. ADAM ACADEMY is a refereed journal. The editorial board expresses an opinion about the preliminary acceptance of the manuscripts and hand it over to the referees. The manuscripts are referred to at least two referees. If one of the referee reports is positive and the other is negative, the article may be sent a third referee, or the editor may make a final decision by examining the referee reports. The suggestions, criticism and corrections made by the referees are redirected to the authors provided that the referees’ names remain anonymous; the authors are obliged to make referees’ consult. In case the authors are insistent upon their own manuscripts, the editorial board re-evaluates them. In accordance with the referees’ opinions, the manuscripts cleared for publication by the editorial board are reviewed for their format, spelling rules, references and visual materials; the final assessment is conducted by the editorial coordinator provided there is no crucial defect. The copyright of the manuscripts accepted to be published in the journal is deemed to have been transferred to ADAM ACADEMY Journal of Social Sciences. The responsibility of the opinions expressed in the published articles belongs to their authors.

The application, review, field editor evaluation, referee review, correction and publication process ranges between 8 and 18 months on average for the submitted manuscripts to ADAM ACADEMY. These processes are followed through the online article submission system. The authors are not informed through other channels.


Writing Rules
ADAM ACADEMY uses APA version reference format. Manuscripts sent to ADAM ACADEMY should be prepared in reference system, format of footnotes and bibliography with American Psychological Association (APA) style.

Attention should be paid to presenting the articles sent to ADAM ACADEMY as follows. If a condition that does not comply with the following rules is detected during the pre-check phase, the article is returned to the author without being sent to the referees, and is requested to be framed by the following rules:

General view: Manuscripts must be submitted in Microsoft Word format. Times New Roman writing style is used in the main text including tables, graphics, figures, maps. The line spacing of text is 1.15. Paragraphs are separated by a space not with a paragraph indentation. Line spacing can be set as 1 in the tables. The submitted studies are expected to be at least 5,000 words, excluding the English extended summary. The main text is written in 10 font size.

Title: It should be a title that is compatible with the content, which expresses it best and only the initials of the words should be written in bold capital letters, in 11 font size. Conjunctions (and, for, etc.) should be written completely lowercase.

Name(s) and address(es) of the author(s): The title, name and institution of the author is 10 font size and centered. The title of the author is not used, and the institution name is written in italics. For other information, a footnote is given next to the name of the author as *. The title, university/institution, faculty/institute/college, department, e-mail address, and ORCID ID are written in the footnote respectively.

Abstract: There should be an abstract written in Turkish and English, with a font size of 9 and not exceeding 200 words at the beginning of the article. The used sources, figures and table numbers should not be mentioned in the abstract. Keywords consisting of at least 3 and at most 8 words should be given in Turkish and English by leaving a blank line under the abstract.

Extended Abstract: It must be presented an English extended abstract of 1000-1500 words in order to increase the international visibility of the manuscript. This abstract can be presented with the article in submission, or it can be presented after the manuscript is accepted for publication. But in the second case, the extended English abstract will be re-transmitted to the English editors.

Tables, Graphics and Figures: The names of tables, graphics, figures, etc. should be written on the table, graphic and figure in 9 font size. The names of tables, graphics, figures, etc. should be numbered and written perpendicular to the left and bold, with a dot (.) at the end. The name of the table, the graphic and the figure should be written in small, with only the first letter of the first word capitalized (Example: Table 1. Citation table). The figures and graphics to be used in the study should be prepared in high resolution suitable for printing in black and white. The source should be written in italics, 8 font size, and centered below the table, graphic or figure. The size of the text to be used in the tables should be chosen as maximum 9 font size.

Citiations: Authors should avoid using footnotes as much as possible. Footnotes should be used only for explanations and numbered automatically. ADAM ACADEMY does not use endnotes. On the other hand, endnotes should only be used for explanation, and at the end of the text. In order to indicate sources in footnotes, authors should use the principles of in-text citation. Direct quotations should be given in quotes; Quotations less than five lines should be written between the lines, and quotations longer than five lines should be written in 1 point small (9 font size), 1.5 cm from the left and right of the line, in blocks and with 1 line spacing.

If there is a general reference in the text and reference is made to the whole text (surname, year) it is sufficient to write. Example: (Bulut, 2009).

If a page is quoted or related ideas are taken from a certain section, the source is written with the page number. Example: (Faroqhi, 1997: 67) or (Korkut, 2020: 12-14).
