2.All rights of the articles decided to be published in JOHMAL are transferred to the journal during the publishing process. The copyright transfer of the articles is taken by filling in and signing the form presented on the journal website. Publications of the authors who do not send this form cannot be published.
3.At JOHMAL, the studies are taken into consideration together with the Plagiarism Report (IThenticate, Turnitin). If the plagiarism report is not added, the editor has the right to reject the article directly.
4. All legal, economic and ethical obligations of the articles sent to JOHMAL belong to the authors. The articles sent to JOHMAL to be published should not have been published in any media before and it should not be in the process of publication evaluation when added to the system. In addition, the symposium papers can be published provided that the place of presentation, meeting and the date are recorded and the full text version is not published elsewhere. However, the responsibility of any problem likely to arise from this publication activity belongs to the author. Besides, Ethical Committee approval must be obtained for studies on clinical and experimental human and animals requiring an Ethics Committee decision, this approval must be stated in the article and must be submitted as an appendix at the end of the article. Publications that do not meet this requirement are not acceptable.
5. Articles that do not comply with the Style Guidelines in the Author Guidelines tab of JOHMAL may not be considered.
6. Reviewer Process: The compliance of all studies with the purpose, principles and standards of the journal is initially evaluated by the editorial board. In the editorial evaluation, the studies deemed appropriate are sent to the external referees determined according to the branches of science and evaluated by at least two referees within 15 days. In this process, a new referee can be appointed for the works not evaluated by the referee. JOHMAL conducts a double-blind referee process. All the processes related to refereeing and publishing are followed through the electronic referee system via the DergiPark. A study with two positive referee reports qualifies for publication. The study, which has only one positive referee evaluation, is sent to a third referee and the decision to publish the study is made according to the third referee's report. The authors can object to the referee reports by stating their scientific reasons. In such a case, the editorial board reviews the article and reports.
