DUJE has general rules about the formatting of articles upon initial submission. When writing your paper, you will probably need to format your journal article ready for submission. To make this easier, Word templates are available for the journal, ready for you to download and apply to your research paper format.
Template file for Turkish version (*.docx)
Template file for English version (*.docx) (recommended)
Only when your paper is at the revision stage, will you be requested to put your paper in to a 'correct format' for acceptance and provide the items required for the publication of your article.
It is extremely important that you do not include any identifying information about the authors in your document, as the article you submit will be sent to reviewers. Please review the body of the text for potential identifying information and ensure that all self-citations are indicated as Author (Year) for both in-text citations and references.
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Material and methods
Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.
Results should be clear and concise.
This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
In this section, you can acknowledge any support given which is not covered by the author's contribution or funding sections. This may include administrative and technical support, or donations in kind (e.g., materials used for experiments).
It is recommended to prepare the references with IEEE citation style. The details of the format are given in the template file.
Obligation for ORCID
Authors submitted articles to our journal should add their ORCID numbers. ORCID is short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID is a 16-digit numbered URI that complies with the ISO Standard (ISO 27729), also known as the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). You can create a free registration for individual ORCID at http://orcid.org.
Authors of accepted manuscripts should agree to transfer the copyright for the article to the DUJE and submit their final versions in electronic form adhering to the style of the DUJE.
Journal Plagiarism Policy
Dicle University Journal of Engineering has the policy to evaluate articles/reviews in terms of plagiarism. Before submitting manuscripts to our journal, it is suggested to check the similarity status/ratio in your manuscript with appropriate plagiarism software programs (iThenticate, Turnitin, etc.). In this respect, the articles/reviews submitted to our journal are subject to preliminary evaluation; manuscripts with a similarity ratio below 30%, which is determined with the Turnitin software, will be considered acceptable by our Editorial Board. Articles/reviews with more than the specified ratio (30%) are returned to the author(s).
