Ethical values are one of the most important elements of all scientific study processes. For this reason, studies submitted to the journal are subjected to a completely confidential evaluation process. The information and ideas acquired during the evaluation are kept confidential; they cannot be used to gain an advantage in any way.
As a requirement of its publication ethics, the Journal of Media and Religion Studies (MEDIAD) necessitates that every study which has passed the blind refereeing process goes through plagiarism check in order to protect the integrity of every study. In this context, Turkish and English copies of each study go through plagiarism check by a member appointed by the editorial board.
Plagiarism check is carried out through appropriate software according to the nature of the article and a report is prepared accordingly. The author may be asked to correct the errors pointed in the report or his/her study may be returned. The ethical and legal responsibility of the studies belongs primarily to the authors.
The editorial board of Medya ve Din Araştırmaları Dergisi (MEDİAD) complies with the following rules for plagiarism policy:
The above mentioned rules are accepted by all authors who have uploaded articles to the journal.
