Ethical Principles and Publication Policy

It is mandatory for studies/articles that require data collection from individuals using scales, surveys, interviews and other data collection tools. The author must have approval from the Ethics Committee of the University to which he/she is affiliated. Board approval should be stated on the first page of the article with the board name, date and issue number. Data collection starting and ending dates should be written in the method section of the article. The approval document must be added to DergiPark as an additional file. For TR Dizin's opinion on Ethics Committee approval, see.

Researches Requiring Ethics Committee Permission
1. All kinds of research conducted with qualitative or quantitative approaches that require collecting data from participants using survey, interview, focus group study, observation, experiment and interview techniques,
2. Use of humans and animals (including materials/data) for experimental or other scientific purposes,
3. Clinical studies conducted on humans,
4. Researches conducted on animals,
5. Retrospective studies in accordance with the personal data protection law.
In this context, the studies to be evaluated in our journal:
1. Indicating that "informed consent form" was obtained in case reports,
2. Obtaining and specifying permission from the owners for the use of scales, surveys and photographs belonging to others,
3. It must be stated that copyright regulations are complied with for the ideas and artistic works used.

In studies requiring ethics committee permission, information about the permission (committee name, date and issue number) should be included in the method section and also on the first/last page of the article. In case reports, information about signing the informed consent/consent form must be included in the article.

Code of Ethics
The publication processes applied at BUIIFD form the basis for the development and distribution of information in an impartial and respectful manner. The processes implemented in this direction directly reflect on the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support the authors. Peer-reviewed studies are studies that embody and support the scientific method. At this point, it is important that all stakeholders of the process (authors, readers and researchers, publisher, referees and editors) comply with the standards regarding ethical principles. Within the scope of BUIIFD publicatio ethics, all stakeholders are expected to bear the following ethical responsibilities. The ethical duties and responsibilities listed below have been prepared taking into account the guidelines and policies published by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) as open access (See COPE Directive in Turkish). See also Theology Field Journals Editors' Workshop Decisions (20/01/2018). Publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is a necessary building block in the development of a cohesive and respected knowledge network. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and their supporting institutions. Peer-reviewed articles support and shape scientific methods. It is therefore important for all parties involved in publishing, authors, journal editors, reviewers and publishing organizations, to agree on the standards of expected ethical behavior:

1. Authorship

· Plagiarism and fake data should not be included
· The same research should not be attempted to be published in more than one journal, and scientific research and publication ethics should be followed.

Actions against science research and publication ethics are as follows:

a) Plagiarism: Presenting the ideas, methods, data, applications, writings, figures or works of others as one's own work, in whole or in part, without citing their owners in accordance with scientific rules,

b) Forgery: Producing data that is not based on research, editing or changing the presented or published work based on unreal data, reporting or publishing these, presenting a research that has not been done as if it were done,

c) Distortion: Falsifying research records and data obtained, presenting methods, devices and materials that were not used in the research as if they were used, not taking into consideration data that does not comply with the research hypothesis, tampering with data and/or results to fit the relevant theory or assumptions, using the persons and organizations receiving support. falsifying or shaping research results in line with one's interests,

d) Re-publication: Presenting more than one work containing the same results of a research as separate works in associate professor exam evaluations and academic promotions,

d) Slicing: Presenting the results of a research as separate works in associate professorship exam evaluations and academic promotions by dividing it into parts inappropriately, in a way that disrupts the integrity of the research, and by publishing multiple publications without citing each other.

e) Unfair authorship: Including people who do not have an active contribution among the authors, not including people who have an active contribution among the authors, changing the author order in an unjustified and inappropriate way, removing the names of those who have an active contribution from the work during publication or in subsequent editions, increasing their influence even though they do not have an active contribution. to include his name among the writers by using

Revealing Plagiarism:
Articles submitted for publication in BUIIFD are subject to double-blind peer review by at least two referees. In addition, through a special program used to detect plagiarism, it is confirmed that the articles have not been published before and do not contain plagiarism.

Preliminary Review and Plagiarism Screening:
The study is reviewed by the editor for compliance with the journal publishing principles, academic writing rules and the ISNAD Citation System. It is scanned for plagiarism using the Ithenticate or Turnitin program. The plagiarism similarity rate is required to be less than 20%. The preliminary review is completed within 15 days at most.

Referee Process (Academic Evaluation):
The study which is reviewed by the field editor is presented to the evaluation of at least two referees who have a doctoral thesis, book or article on the subject. The referee process is carried out confidentially within the framework of double-blind arbitration. The referee is requested to express his/her views and opinions about the study he/she reviewed either in the text or to justify it with an explanation of at least 100 words on the online referee form. The right to object and defend his/her opinions is given to the author if he/she disagrees with the referee's opinions. The field editor ensures mutual communication between the author and the referee while maintaining confidentiality. If both referee reports are positive, the study is submitted to the editorial board with a proposal to consider its publication. If one of the two referees has a negative opinion, the study is sent to a third referee. Studies can be published with the positive decision of at least two referees. Translated articles are sent to language and relevant field experts to be evaluated in terms of conformity to the original, appropriate use of field concepts and language. Translations that experts have a negative opinion about are not published. Book and symposium evaluations are decided as a result of the evaluation of the relevant field editors. A maximum of one article by an author can be published in an issue.

Editing Stage:
If the referees request corrections in the text they review, the relevant reports are sent to the author and he/she is asked to correct his work. It is requested that the correction be completed within 10 days at most. The author presents the corrections he/she made to the field editor, highlighting them in red.
Field Editor Control: The field editor checks whether the author has made the requested corrections in the text. The checking process is completed within 5 days at most.
Referee Control: The referee who requests correction checks whether the author has made the requested corrections in the text. The checking process is completed within 7 days at most.
Typesetting and Layout Stage: The typeset and layout of the works decided to be published by the editorial board are made ready for publication.
