Eurasian Journal of Teachers Education (EJTE) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the ethical principles and rules below to publish qualified scientific articles in the "Teacher Education" field. One of EJTE's main goals is to increase the quality of published studies. In this context, the main criterion in publication ethics to be considered in a published article in our journal is (Committee on Publication Ethics [COPE]). Submitted papers for EJTE are evaluated by a double-blind peer-review process and are published electronically with free access. After printing each issue, the journal publishes a list of reviewers. This list includes reviewers of the articles published in that issue and those who evaluated the rejected articles after evaluation. Below are the ethical responsibilities, roles, and duties of the authors, journal editor, reviewers, and publisher. Also, EJTE information is provided on situations considered plagiarism and unethical behavior.

Ethical Responsibilities for Authors

Articles sent to EJTE must be original studies in the field of education and must not have been published elsewhere or submitted for publication. However, the Copyright Transfer Form must be filled and submitted. Authors should cite correctly and appropriately for all sources (authors, online pages, personal interviews, etc.) they use in their articles. Authors, while uploading the articles to the system, should be deleted all information about the authors. Those who have a common interest should notify the editors. If the author(s) requests information or raw data during the evaluation process, they should submit the expected information to the Editors. Authors are obliged to keep the data of a published article for five years. When authors detect an error in their work, they should inform the editor and the editorial board and cooperate in the correction or withdrawal process.

All articles sent to EJTE present a statement of compliance with "Research and Publication Ethics" that should include in the method section. Authors give information about ethical permission (name of the board, date, and number) should be included in the method section and on the article's first page. It is not expected that the "documents and information requested for studies requiring ethics committee approval " will be applied to studies that have been submitted in the past, are in the process of evaluation, or have been accepted. It will be mandatory for publications whose process begins in 2020. Studies that do not provide these items will be returned to their authors.

Ethical Responsibilities for Reviewers

EJTE has used a double-blind refereeing system. Double-blind refereeing means keeping the authors confidential from the referees and the referees from the authors to ensure an impartial, objective, and independent evaluation process. For this reason, referees should not include self-descriptive statements in the studies they evaluate. In our journal, the referees cannot see the authors and cannot directly communicate with them, authors. Reviews and comments are displayed through the journal management system (field editor). The reviewers must fill out a form that includes the contribution of the article they evaluated to the area of Education, their decisions about whether the paper is publishable, and the reasons for these decisions. The ethical responsibilities and roles of EJTE's reviewers are as follows:

  1. Reviewers are only required to referee articles related to their field of expertise.
  2. Reviewers are expected to agree to referee articles that do not have conflicts of interest.
  3. When reviewers realize any conflict of interest, they should notify the editor and refuse to referee the article.
  4. Reviewers should evaluate the articles impartially and objectively.
  5. Reviewers should make the Evaluation constructively and courteously. Do not make derogatory comments, including hostility, slander, and insults.
  6. They are required to fill in the Reviewer Evaluation Form for the articles they evaluate. They are expected to avoid mentioning their names in the correction suggestions file to prevent harming the double-blind refereeing process. The reviewers must indicate in the Reviewer Evaluation Form their decision on whether the article they evaluated is publishable and the reasons for their decision.
  7. The reviewers must complete their evaluations within the given time and are expected to comply with ethical responsibilities.
Ethical Responsibilities for Editors

EJTE uses a double-blind refereeing system. The ethical duties and responsibilities of the editor are as follows:

General Responsibilities
  1. The editor is responsible for increasing the journal's quality and contributing to its development. It is responsible for ensuring that the authors and referees do not know each other in the study.
  2. It should ensure that authors and reviewers are not selected from the same institution.
  3. It is responsible for ensuring that the reviewers to whom the same study is sent are from different universities.
Relations with Arbitrators
  1. The editor should ask the referees to evaluate the articles according to their knowledge and expertise. Thus, it should ensure that experts in the field appropriately assess the papers.
  2. The editor must convey all necessary information regarding the referee evaluation process and what is expected from the referees.
  3. The editor should ensure that the peer-review process is carried out with double-blind peer review and should not disclose the referees to the authors and the authors to the referees.
  4. The editor should evaluate the referees according to their timing and performance.
  5. The editor should remove the referees who make rude and unqualified comments or return late from the referee list.
  6. The editor should constantly renew and expand the list of referees according to the referees' fields of expertise. 
Relations with Authors
  1. The editor should constantly update the editorial and writing guidelines and the sample template as to what is expected of the authors.
  2. The editor should evaluate the articles submitted to the journal in terms of journal writing rules, the importance of the work, and originality. If he/she decides to reject the paper during the first submission process, he should clearly and impartially convey to the authors the reason for this.
  3. Manuscripts must include dates of submission and acceptance for publication. When the authors request information about the status of their articles, they should inform about the quality of their papers in a way that keeps the double-blind peer-review process intact..
Plagiarism and Unethical Behaviors

The journal will use the names and e-mail addresses on the EJTE site for the stated purposes of this journal. It will not use for other purposes or any other part. Eurasian Journal of Teachers Articles sent to Education are scanned in the Turnitin program. Studies with a similarity ratio below 20% are evaluated, and studies with a high similarity ratio are returned to their authors.

Eurasian Journal of Teachers In case of a behavior that does not comply with the ethical principles regarding the editors, referees, and authors in Education, or an unethical situation regarding an article in the evaluation process, early view or published, it should be reported to


The editor first reviews the submitted in EJTE. Then, suppose the study is approved by the editorial group (method editor, field editor, and the pre-control team that examines it in terms of formality) and the editorial board. In that case, it is sent to two referees who are experts in the relevant publication by the field editor. If both referees give a positive opinion and the editorial board provides a positive opinion, the article is published in the number determined by the editor and the editorial board. If a referee gives a negative thought, the study is sent to a third referee who is an expert in the subject area. If the third reviewer's opinion is positive, a decision is made about the study's publication, considering the reviewers' views. If the third reviewer's opinion is negative, the study is rejected. Studies in which both reviewers make adverse decisions are rejected.

EJTE, open access, has adopted the provisioning policy. Open access accelerates the dissemination of information and has beneficial consequences for humanity. In this context, the journal provides universal open access to scientific content related to the content it has inherited from the authors and published. To contribute to its support and development, on the condition that it is shown as a source in known standards and the content is protected. No fee is charged from the authors for the evaluation or publication of the studies submitted to the journal. The journal grants the authors the right to withdraw their article at the pre-control stage. For the pieces to be removed during the Evaluation and Editing phase, the author must notify the withdrawal request and reason through the correspondence page with the editor. Suppose situations such as manipulating, distorting, and using fabricated data are detected, which would like to withdraw the article because it was accepted by simultaneously sending the same article to another journal. In that case, this situation will report to the institution where the article author works, and the paper will be rejected.

No fee is charged from the authors for the evaluation or publication of the studies submitted to the journal. The articles published in our journal are published electronically with free access.
