Peer Review Process

When a work is submitted to the IBAD, the editor examines the works submitted with a view to check whether they meet the publication criteria of the IBAD. The editor may reject or request some adjustments to the works that do not meet those criteria. The author will be informed about this decision as soon as possible. 

Where the work submitted to the IBAD is in line with the publication criteria, the review process continues based on the kind of the work. Peer review process is based on external/independent peer review and reviewers are independent of the authors. In this regard, as a minimum, a reviewer and an author cannot be affiliated with the same institution.

Articles which meet the publication criteria of the IBAD will be sent to at least two referees. After receiving the Article, the referee will evaluate this Article within the framework of referee report form criteria in one month and sends his/her decision. If the referee does not send his/her report within the time-limit without any justification, the work will be sent to another referee. This Article can be found suitable for publication or unsuitable for publication or some adjustments to the Article can be requested, within the framework of the referee report. The author will be informed about this decision as soon as possible, with the referee report attached to it.
When one of the referees gives a positive and the other gives a negative report about an Article, save for the possibility of sending the Article to a third referee, the editor will decide finally upon whether the Article will be published or not. The author will be informed about this decision as soon as possible.
If an adjustment is requested, the author should, as a rule, correct the work within one month and resubmit it to the IBAD. If the author does not submit the work within the time limit without any justification, the IBAD reserves the right to terminate the editorial process. In addition, without prejudice to the referee requests, it is deemed useful that the author sends the explanations about the adjustments in her/his work to the IBAD as a separate document.

Book reviews or the like which meet the publication criteria of the IBAD can be found suitable for publication or unsuitable for publication or some adjustments to the work can be requested, with the decision of the editor. The author will be informed about this decision as soon as possible.
