Author Guidelines

1- Plagiarism Detection

In accordance with its publishing policies, all articles sent to JEBUPOR will be scanned via iThenticate or Turnitin to get a similarity report before the article goes for review. The upper bound is determined as 15 percent.

If similarity report shows more than 15%, then the article:

1. Could be sent back to author(s) to be edited,

2. Could be rejected by the editor, or

3. Could send to editorial board for evaluation.

The matches found in each study after plagiarism detection are analysed in detail and those matches with correct reference and cross-reference are sorted. In the next step, the mistakes in the remaining matches are determined and reported to the editorial board. The board, then, makes a final decision in the light of the plagiarism detection report. The author(s) may be asked to correct the mistakes listed in the report or the study may be returned to the author(s).

2- Writing Rules

For the articles to be sent to The JEBUPOR, the authors are required to adhere to the following principles and rules. The articles which are not prepared in accordance with the principles and rules stated above may not be taken in assessment process, or may be excluded from assessment at any stage of this process.
