3. Papers presented at academic meetings, symposiums or congresses, or studies produced from these papers are not accepted to the Journal of İnsan ve İnsan.

4. It is assumed that the papers sent to the journal were prepared according to the Journal's "Ethical Principles and Publication Policy" and subjected to a final control and are ready to be published. Therefore, those papers which violate "Ethical Principles and Publication Policy" or suffer from grammatical errors are not evaluated.

5. Papers must be in Word (Microsoft Office 98 and above versions) format.

If it is deemed necessary to use such elements, the total number of all visual elements such as Table, Graphic, Picture, Figure or Scheme should not exceed 3 in an article. If pictures, graphs, figures or tables are used in the paper, they must also be sent separately as picture or excel files.

8. The papers sent to the journal can be in Turkish or English.

9. The name(s) of the author or authors should be written sequentially under the title of the article. No academic title is specified when writing the author's name(s). The title of the author or authors is indicated with an (*) sign under the names. After the title of author, the name of the institution (University, faculty, department or other) where the author works is indicated. Then the Institution's post address and author's corporate e-mail address are written. ORCID number is given on a separate line. No title other than the academic title is used.

13. The papers reviewed by the editors are sent to the Editorial Board for evaluation. The Editorial Board decides to return the paper or send it to at least two anonymous referees, according to the principle of double-blinded peer-review. Studies that are decided to be included in the referee process are sent to at least two anonymous referees in accordance with the double-blind refereeing policy. In line with the reports of the referees, the Editorial Board decides whether to publish the article, to request a correction within the framework of the report from the referees or not to publish it. The author is informed of the decision as soon as possible via the Dergipark e-mail system. The completed or corrected manuscript can be sent back to the referee by the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board ultimately decides whether the manuscripts whose evaluation process is completed will be published in the Journal.

14. Studies must be uploaded through the Dergipark system. Along with the manuscript, "Ethical Responsibility Statement and Copyright Form" should be filled and uploaded to the system.
