Review and Plagiarism Policy

Review Policy

A manuscript submitted to the BAROFD must be the original work of the author(s) and must not published elsewhere or under consideration for another publication in its submitted or a substantially similar form in any language. Every contribution submitted to the BAROFD will be sent to, at least, two reviewers selected by the editors. Authors are welcome to suggest suitable independent reviewers and may also request the journal to exclude certain individuals or laboratories. The primary purpose of the review is to provide the editors with the information necessary to make a decision. The review should also instruct the authors on how to strengthen their paper up to the point where it should be acceptable. A negative review should explain to the authors the weaknesses of their manuscript, so that rejected authors are able to understand the basis for the decision and see, in broad terms, what needs to be done to improve the manuscript in order to be published anywhere. The editors reserve the right to reject manuscripts and to require revisions of contributions. Accepted for publication manuscripts should be corrected by the author taking into account experts remarks, otherwise motivated author's refusal to correct his manuscript should be presented. Double blind peer review typenames of reviewers and authors are not revealed to each other was applied to all manuscripts submitted to Bartin Orman Fakultesi Dergisi (BAROFD). For the summary of review and review process, use the link
