A strict ethical process based on peer-review is adopted to publish the best research articles for academic and practical use. Violations of professional scientific ethical laws such as plagiarism, production and data tampering are taken very seriously without tolerance by editors. Therefore, authors should follow universally accepted scientific reporting principles.
Ethical Violation
In publication process, authors, readers, researchers, publishers, referees, and editors should follow general and speicific rules published by “Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)” Also, the stakeholders are expected to avoid plagiarism, falsification, detortion, duplicated publication, salami slicing and all other ethical violation types mentioned under the title of CoHE Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement.
In case of any ethical violation claim for any research paper submitted, editor and deputy editors will deal with the issue to the official publication rules and principles. In necessary cases, proofreading and editing can be requested from authors for their papers. For the cases that ethical violation is located, the concerned article is removed from journal web site.
The paper submitted should be original and should not be officially published in any other house organ. Besides, the paper should not be in peer reviewing process of any journal or conference and should not have been published before. Also, the paper should not violate any existing copyright or other third parties’ copyrights.
Authors are responsible for cooperating with the editor in order to edit any problem or impropriety in their paper they have detected. Responsible author should certainly declare that all other authors of the paper have viewed and verified the last version of the article and aggreed with submitting the article for publication. Besides, responsible author should declare that the required information about all the authors have been correctly provided.
The articles submitted to the journal should accurately share all the data obtained and provide all the details and references in a way that could let the study be replicated. The fanciful and distorted claims are against research ethics and unacceptable.
To the publication policy of the journal, in order to avert any plagiarism, the papers are offered to experts for consideration and “IThenticate” programme is used. The similarity percentage should be less than 15%.
In citation, academic language and rhetoric should be used. Proprietary and private information, obtained from a speech, a correspondence, or third parties, can not be used or delivered without any official written permisson by the source.
Our editorial board has started to ask for ethics commitee approval for all the studies in educational sciences from the begining of 2020. Authors should declare and document their ethics commitee approval in their article.
The relevant information about ethics commitee approval (commitee, date, and serial number) for the studies required for the commitee report should be given in methodology part and also on the first and last pages of the article. In case studies, authors also should declare that the protocols proving the voluntary participation of participants have been signed.
Besides, from the beginning of 2020, in polyonoumous articles, the contribution rate of each author should be stated; if the study was funded by any agenicies, institutes and organizastions, they should be declared in Acknowledgements. Also, if there is any Conflicts of Interest, authors should declare.
Peer Review Process
All articles are sent to experts in the field invited to review the papers. In this regard, in our journal, double blind review method is followed. All the articles are independently evaluated by two reviewers. Each reviewer makes decisions about papers in terms of either accept, or revision, or reject of the article. If one of the reviewer rejects and the other reviewer accepts the paper, then the article is sent to third reviewer and on the basis of his/her decision, the article is either accepted or rejected.
If reviewers request for revision, authors will revise their artciles to the points reviewers will have outlined. Rarely, the re-submitted articles may be sent to fourth reviewer for further evaluation. As soon as revisions are completed and editor accepts, the correspondent author will be informed about the accept of the article for publication. For rejected papers, the correpondent author is not contacted. Peer reviewing process is approximately 6 months. This process may extend or shorten to the feedback by the reviewers.
