Manuscript Evaluation Process: 

The Peer Review Step:

·       The content and layout format of manuscript are examined and the originality of study is checked through iThenticate Software Programme.

·           The language and correlation of the English abstract with Turkish abstract are checked.

·         Manuscript which has a similarity index above 40% is rejected. The author is informed about the manuscript which has a similarity index between 20% and 40% (must not contain more than 4% from a single source), which is not appropriate for the writing rules of JNSE or needs correction in English and Turkish abstracts and the author is requested to revise the manuscript within “two weeks”. Otherwise, the article is considered as a retracted manuscript. 

NOTE: Our journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. For this reason, the uploaded manuscript does not contain the name, address and affiliation of author(s). The manuscript evaluation steps are as follows

  • Editor is assigned by the Editor-in-Chief. 
  • The relevant reviewers are assigned by the Editors.
  • The manuscript may be rejected, accepted or a correction for the manuscript may be requested as a result of the reviewer's evaluation. 
  • If the negative feedback is given by major number of the reviewers, then the process is terminated and the article is rejected.
  • If major/minor revisions are required for the manuscript, the author has to do the revision according to the reviewers’ comments in “three weeks”.
  • If the revision is accepted by the reviewers, the article is accepted. 

"The Workflow Diagram" for the evaluation process can be accessed from the "JNSE Publishing Process" section of the web page of the journal.

The articles submitted to JNSE to be published are free of article submission, processing and publication charges.

The accepted articles are published free-of-charge as online from the journal website and printed.
