Review Process

It is ensured that the articles that pass the pre-evaluation stage go through a fair double-blind peer-review. At this stage, the articles are sent to two national/international referees for evaluation. If one of the referee reports is positive and the other is negative, the article is sent to a third referee. In line with the report of the third referee, it is decided whether the article will be published or not.

During the evaluation of the manuscripts, first of all, care is taken to ensure that the referees and authors are not from the same institution. Except for the fixed referee board of the journal, periodic referees can be appointed according to the subject of the texts applied in each issue. The referees of interdisciplinary articles are determined according to their fields of interest.
The referees are expected to make an objective evaluation according to the subjects included in the article evaluation form sent by the editorial board.
The referees should ensure that the submitted article contents remain confidential until the article is published, should not share them with third parties, and should inform the editorial board if they notice any copyright infringement and/or plagiarism by the author(s). If the referee is not sufficiently expert on the subject of the article or if it does not seem possible to provide a timely response, he should notify the editorial board of this situation and terminate the refereeing process of the relevant article.
Care should be taken to keep the identities of the referees confidential.
