The Journal of National Education, a refereed scientific journal, is published quarterly by The Ministry of National Education. The Journal is published quarterly in February, May, August and November as winter, spring, summer and fall issues.
The aim is to provide the information, practices, problems and suggestions regarding education and training are presented, discussed and delivered to the related parties, theoretically or practically, on a scientific level.
2. SUBJECT AND CONTENT
The journal of National Education includes articles in the field of education. In the articles, the criteria of being research-based, contributing to the field, making suggestions for implementation, examining new and different developments, and being up-to-date are taken into consideration.
Manuscripts must not have been previously published or accepted for publication in other media.
3. PUBLISHING AND REVIEW PROCESS
Articles are reviewed by the Editorial Board and the Pre-Review Board of the journal. The submitted articles are first evaluated by the Pre-Review Board. At this stage, the articles are handled from five angles;
3.1. Compliance with Application Requirements
It is checked whether the information and documents specified in Article 6 have been uploaded completely.
3.2. Compliance with the Writing Rules of the Journal
Correct use of language and fluency, spelling rules, article word count, number of words in Turkish and English abstracts, number of keywords and compatibility of foreign language equivalents, rules of bibliography etc. are controlled.
3.3. Compliance with the Article Template
While the articles are being prepared, the article template on our DergiPark page should be used. In the evaluation process, it is checked whether the article is suitable for the template features.
3.4. Compliance with the Scope of the Journal and Scientific Requirements
Whether it has basic scientific article features such as its purpose, method and result, quality and quantity of the sample of the research, whether the research subject is up-to-date, and suggestions contribute to education, etc. matters are examined.
3.5. Legal and Ethical Compliance
The article may contain ideas, criticisms and suggestions. However, these ideas and criticisms should not constitute a legal crime, violate ethical rules, and damage the dignity of individuals and institutions.
Articles that are found not to meet any of these conditions or whose application documents are missing are directly rejected with the decision of the Pre-Review Board. In addition, articles that are out of the field, namely the articles which are incompatible with the journal’s name, subject area, memory and readership, are returned even if they are complete and very successful. Reasons for refusal are not created with long explanations one by one for such articles that are too numerous. International scientific journals have no feedback obligation.
For the manuscripts that have detected minor deficiencies that do not require a return, a resubmission is requested through the DergiPark system. Follow-up of the process is the author's responsibility. Correspondence with the authors and referees related to the Journal of National Education is carried out through the DergiPark system and there is no opportunity or obligation to communicate with each author through different channels within the current workload.
The reviewed articles are submitted to the Editorial Board for scientific evaluation when necessary. These articles appropriate for publication principles are also checked for plagiarism. For this purpose, the article owners have to send the similarity report created using one of the internationally accepted similarity screening programs (eg iThenticate) in the attachment of the article. All responsibility for similarity belongs to the author. The similarity rate accepted by the National Education Journal is kept confidential in order to carry out the process in a healthy way. This rate has been determined by the Editorial Board by the evaluation and confirmation of the rate proposed by ULAKBİM and the relevant authorities.
An Ethics Committee Permit must be submitted for all articles. In cases where an Ethics Committee Permission Document is not required, authors must upload a document explaining the reason for this to the system. The institution, date and number of decisions from which the Ethics Committee was obtained should be specified in the method section of the article. If there is no need for Ethics Committee Permission, the justification should be explained in the method section. Institutional or individual application permissions obtained for the research do not replace Ethics Committee Permission.
Articles approved by the Pre-Review or Editorial Board are sent to two qualified referees who are well known in the field with their works. In the event of an acceptance and a rejection in the decisions, the third referee opinion is taken. The refereeing process is carried out until two positive or two negative reports received about the article. Invitations are sent to a maximum of twelve referees for an article. If there is no result from the referees in this process, the article is returned. Referee reports are confidential and kept for five years. The pre-review process takes an average of one month, and the referee process takes an average of six months. In some cases, this period may be longer. Detailed information about the referee process is explained in detail in the “Blind Referee System” section of the DergiPark Page.
Authors should take into consideration the criticism, corrections and suggestions by the referees and the Editorial Board. If there is a disagreement by the author, he/she has a right to explain it with justifications. The corrections made must be uploaded to the system during the revision process using the Referee Correction Chart on our DergiPark page. The Editorial Board or editorial unit has the right to make minor corrections, which do not change the whole meaning. The responsibility of the findings and opinions in the published articles belongs to their authors.
