Since 1943 Ankara Üniversitesi SBF Dergisi has been a leading, open access and double blind peer-reviewed quarterly journal of original research and thinking mainly in the fields of political science and economics. The journal is one of few that has pioneered the grounding of social sciences in Turkey focusing on problem-driven and critical research since its launch. As a pioneering publication, it has for long been broad and inclusive, embracing a wide diversity of social, political and economic research and thinking from Turkey and beyond. Currently, it is interdisciplinary in nature and seeks to reflect the vibrancy of debates on politics and international relations throughout the globe with a special focus on Turkey and its surrounding regions. It also supports a broad research agenda and accepts the submission of articles aimed at invigorating cross-disciplinary debate with economics and its derivative fields such as international political economy, finance and development. We make sure that the contributions are freely and openly available to all users. Read our Ethical Guidelines here.
