Moment Journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access, electronic journal which has been published biannually in December and June by the Faculty of Communication, Hacettepe University. The Journal, which has been published since 2014, aims at making contribution to the broad field of cultural studies with genuine academic works that promise new questions and strong theoretical perspectives on national and international level by featuring articles both in Turkish and English. As an interdisciplinary journal, Moment includes critical studies and discussions in all areas of humanities and social sciences. Moment Journal regards, not only readers with academic interests in social sciences and humanities but also all the readers who have this interest and curiosity, as its audience. Inspired by Gramsci’s concept of “moment”, Moment Journal’s aim is to quest for praxis possibilities for a critical reading of social phenomenons.
Every issue of the journal is based on a certain theme. In each thematic issue, the editorial staff and guest editors work together. Continuation of our journal over the themes is adopted both in terms of increasing the accessibility of information about certain topics and in steering new debates by providing an intellectual basis for the topics which are on the agenda of the academy. No fee is demanded for the submission, evaluation and publication processes of the articles.
The manuscripts submitted to the journal are evaluated in terms of compliance with the editorial principles of the journal, and then presented to the double-blind peer review process at least by two reviewers. It is confirmed through anti-plagiarism softwares that the articles have not been published before and do not contain plagiarism.
Our journal continues publication in accordance with COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) guidelines and policies of Budapest Open Access Initiative.
All the articles should be written accordingly with APA style's sixth edition.
