Author Guidelines

The studies that are sent to be published in the International Journal of Social and Educational Sciences [IJOSES], are first examined by the editor or section editors in the terms of their appropriateness to the journal's publication policies. If the study is appropriate to the journal's publication policies, it is then sent to at least two peers for them to assess. In the case of one of the peer's negative assessments, it is then sent to a third peer. If the third peer's assessment is negative, it is then returned to its owner.

The Assessment Process

If you are considering submitting an article to our journal, we are suggesting you examine our journal, the journal's publication policy, and the author guide. Authors should be signed up first to submit work. After the sign-up, via the entry link, you can start the submitting process which includes 3 steps. In the texts that are going to be uploaded to the system, the name and other information should not be included in any way. These informations are later included by the editors before the publication.

The author (s) is responsible for the views and opinions expressed in the texts. All publication rights of the articles that are sent to be published and approved by the publishing council belong to the IJOSES / USEBD Journal. The edicts that are presented in the national or international symposiums can be submitted to the publication in the condition of being stated. The edicts that are presented in the symposiums should not be published.

Every article that is submitted to the International Journal of Social and Educational Sciences is checked by the editors in terms of their resemblance and plagiarism, with the usage of similarity programs such as iThenticate, Turnitin, and İntihal. Articles with more than %25 plagiarism are returned to the author without it being taken to the assessment process. If the resemblance is not apparent in the articles or other works to the degree of %25 and above, the studies are sent to the two referees who are experts in the field. In the case of the positive report that is received by referees, the article is published. In the case of one of the referees' negative reports, depending on the content of the report, if it is seen as necessary by the editor, the article is sent to a third referee. If the third referee's report is positive, the article is published, in any other case, it is not published. If the article is not assessed within the time that is given to the referee, the article is sent to another referee.

The articles are only submitted by the open journal system.

* Cases such as name similarities, surname changes, names that consist of Turkish letters, different spellings, and institution changes may create problems in publication/citation searches that are made by the name of the author. This is why it is important for researchers to obtain their depictor identity/number (ID). For this reason, it is required for all of our writers to register for ORCID. It is recommended that our authors should request their ORCID information and include this information in journals/articles since Orcid is going to be used to ensure standardization and in the joint studies that are going to be carried out with YOK. ORCID is the abbreviation of Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID is a 16- digit, numbered URI that is compatible with the ISO Standard (27729), which is known as International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). You can create a free registration for an individual ORCID at http://orcid.org .

*Authors should upload their articles to the system after they write or edit their writings according to the journal article template.

*APA 6 style should be used in the in-text citations and references. In order to obtain information about the APA 6 style, please use the next link. http://www.apastyle.org/learn/index.aspx

The studies that are sent to the journal, if it is possible, should not exceed the 10.000-word limit, and books and other introductions should not exceed the 1.500-word limit. For the articles, it should be noted that they should not be under the 5.000-word limit. Furthermore, Turkish and English abstracts between 150-200 words, should be added to the articles.

*The articles that are uploaded to the system by the authors are reviewed by the editorial board and then decided if it is going to be taken into the assessment or not.
