In this context;


• To show new trends and options for the use of Information and Communication Technologies;

• Linking or integrating different technology areas in the broad field of computer applications;

• It is aimed to include interdisciplinary studies in different fields of architecture, agriculture, basic sciences, and social sciences, especially engineering.

EJOSAT is an open-access journal that publishes pure and applied researches in the field of engineering and technology. The journal promotes the latest scientific findings, empirical and theoretical researches in the following areas. The manuscripts can be original research studies or reviews of a sufficient number of references. The publication language of the journal is English and Turkish.

Publication Ethics

The European Journal of Science and Technology is based on the principle of producing, developing, evaluating, and sharing the processes of interdisciplinary studies, especially in the field of engineering and basic sciences, in an impartial way with the scientific method.
It is aimed that all stakeholders, namely authors, editors, referees, publishers, and readers, who produce a scientific study, contribute to the progress of science by following a correct process. Within the scope of this goal, it is very important that the studies comply with scientific ethical principles.
