Evaluation process

 The works submitted to the journal will be given a preliminary examination by giving a code from the moment we arrive. This process is examined in terms of content and form. Eligible studies shall be submitted with two approved judgments in the field to be evaluated for their scientific competence.


MM-IJES implements an evaluation system called "blind arbitration" by TÜBİTAK / ULAKBİM. Accordingly, at any stage, the names of the author and the names of the referees are not disclosed to the arbitrators. Referees can see the journal as a reader if an article is published in which the author's name is refereed. It is by no means communicated to the referees in any way what the unpublished article belongs to. If one of the referee reports is positive and the other is negative, the article may be sent a third referee. Written corrections by the referees are sent back to the author for necessary changes. The desired corrections are expected within a certain period of time. Those who do not receive at least two positive reports, who have been sent back to the author for correction and whose corrections have not been made within the specified period of time, are informed to the authors and eliminated from the publication process. At the last stage, the article is assessed by the editorial board in the direction of at least two jurisdictions "publishable", in terms of informing and contributing to the field, compliance with the publishing policy and priorities of the journal and deciding whether or not to be taken at the time of publication.


MM-IJES has adopted a zero tolerance policy on plagiarism. Positive completion of the evaluation process should be screened by

the author (s) with plagiarism programs such as "iThenticate" and "Turnitin". The plagiarism screening report should be sent to the editor of our journal.  


In order for a journal article to be published at the time of publication, the "Copyright Articles of Association Agreement" must be signed by the author(s) and sent to the journal contact address. Scientific and legal responsibilities of the manuscripts belong to authors.
