Journal of Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies (JSCMT) is an international journal, peer-reviewed, and open-access journal. Two referees specialized on the subject and selected by the Board of Editors to review the manuscripts submitted. 

JSCMT carries original, full-length articles and shorter articles relating to the pursuit and implementation of sustainability pillars through engineering planning, design, and application. It provides an academic platform for professionals and researchers to contribute innovative work in the field. Special issues devoted to international conferences and reviews of books and major reports will be published too.

  1. Articles under the categories listed below are accepted to be published:

    Research Articles reflect the original experimental and/or theoretical research works. A coherent treatment emphasizing new insight is expected rather than a simple accumulation of data.

    Review Articles include authoritative reviews of recent advances in the basic and applied sciences with emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the subject. Manuscripts are generally of greater length than those found in other categories but contributions dealing in part with original research are not excluded. Contributors who may be invited by the editors, or who may submit outline proposals directly are offered a small royalty upon the publication of the article.

Journal of Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies has a blind review process which is believed that more relevant than ever as the system for evaluating the quality, validity and relevance of scholarly research. The manuscripts submitted to journal are sent to two expert reviewers, whom of many have academic degree, for the possible publishing. The reviewers in the similar research area scrutinize the manuscripts for validly, significance, originality and scientific to help the editors assess whether the manuscripts should be published in the Journal. The manuscripts submitted to journal are passed on initial check by the editors. Inadequate or unprepared manuscripts according to journal requirements are rejected. Also, the manuscripts are checked for plagiarism using iThenticate which is subscribed by Yildiz Technical University. The manuscripts passing on the initial check are sent to two expert researchers to review. Generally a month time is offered the experts to review. The reviewing process is blind, so the authors never see the reviewers' name. We aim to reach a final decision for the manuscripts submitted to the journal within 1-2 months. Accepted manuscripts are presented online in the main website of the Journal. After proof of the accepted manuscripts, the papers are published in printed version of the Journal.

Ethical Responsibilities of the Reviewers

Peer review of research embodies the scientific method, subjecting the work to the exacting scrutiny of knowledgeable colleagues. The rigor of the review process directly affects the quality of the literature; it provides confidence in an objective and independent evaluation of the published work. Journal of Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies uses a blind review process. All comments and the evaluation are transmitted through the journal management system. Reviewers should:

  • Only agree to evaluate studies related to their specialty;
  • Return reviews promptly and within the designated timeframe;
  • Evaluate with impartiality. Nationality, gender, religious beliefs, political beliefs, commercial concerns, or other considerations must not influence the evaluation;

    Examples of some activities considered to be contrary to scientific research and publication ethics:

  • Plagiarism: The representation of the ideas, methods, data, or other work of another, in whole or in part, as one’s own. The original source must be appropriately acknowledged. Authors are encouraged to offer unique work that does not rely on substantial use of other sources, regardless of citation.
  • Fraud: The use of fabricated or falsified data or other deceptive misrepresentation of fact. 
    Distortion: Manipulation of the research records, data, images, or results, or presenting unused devices or materials as if they were used in the research, particularly in the interests of study sponsors.
  • Republication: Duplicate submissions presented as unique publications.
  • Slicing: The use of a portion of data or findings derived from a single research idea in multiple smaller units as separate publications.
  • Inaccurate authorship: The inclusion of individuals as named authors who were not active contributors, the failure to include contributors, or the inappropriate ranking of authors.
  • Lack of acknowledgement of individuals, institutions, or organizations that provided financial or other substantial support to the work.
  • Use of a thesis or unpublished study without the permission of the owner.
  • Failure to comply with ethical rules for human and animal research, including respect for patient rights and animal welfare, or obtaining the required approval.
  • The misuse of resources, facilities, or devices provided for scientific research.
  • The use of false or misleading statements.


On rare occasions it may be necessary for a journal to impose sanctions on researchers who have engaged in questionable research practices or publishing ethics malpractice: for example, a ban against publishing any further articles in the journal when doing so puts the journal’s reputation demonstrably at risk, or not permitting a researcher to serve as a reviewer or editor. Bans of this nature may be implemented for a period of time and revoked or extended if necessary, upon review at the conclusion of the allotted time period. Sanctions may be appealed by writing to the journal editor.

Plagiarism Policy
Plagiarism is the theft of another’s work and a violation of ethics, regardless of whether it is intentional or not. It is unacceptable conduct to submit or publish manuscripts using other sources without appropriately citing the reference. It is the policy of the Journal of Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies, to use plagiarism detection software for all submissions and to perform an editorial review when necessary. The editor or the editorial board may request revision or reject a manuscript that does not meet publication standards, including plagiarism, citation or other manipulation, or any fraudulent misrepresentation.

Conflict of Interest

The editor is required to ensure that any conflicts of interest between authors, reviewers, or other parties are disclosed and managed appropriately to provide an independent and impartial process.
Any potential perception of a financial or personal interest that may affect decision-making creates a conflict of interest. The presence of a conflict of interest is independent of the occurrence of inappropriateness. The reliability of the scientific process and published articles is directly related to the objective consideration of conflicts of interest during the planning, implementation, writing, evaluation, editing, and publication of scientific studies.
Financial relationships are the most easily identified conflicts of interest, and if undisclosed, they undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and the science. However, conflicts can also occur through individual relationships, academic competition, intellectual approach, and more. Authors should refrain as much as possible from any relationship that could restrict their ability to objectively access data or analyze, interpret, prepare, and publish their article. Authors must disclose any relationships related to study submissions.
Editors and peer reviewers should also be aware of potential conflicts of interest and refrain from engaging in any activity that could be questionable and report associations that could be perceived as presenting a conflict.
The publication team works diligently to ensure that the evaluation process is conducted in an impartial manner in order to protect the interests of all parties.
