Author order should be given with superscript and this order should be observed in ORCID numbers at the footer and in the affiliation line. The affiliation information of the authors should be written in the order of the authors, with each author's affiliation on a line. The information in the address field should be numbered with superscript and written in 8 points italic font. All necessary information about the authors should be written in the relevant table and the borders of the table should be removed. Corresponding author should be marked with a * superscript, and the e-mail information of the author should be given in the footer at the bottom of the first page.

2.1.3 Headers (10 points-6pt space before and 3pt space after)
The main title of the article should be given in Turkish and English respectively for articles written in Turkish; and in English and Turkish for articles written in English. The main headings of the article should be written in 14 points and centered. 6 points space should be left after the Turkish and English article titles. Of the letters in the title, only the first letter must be capital, all others must be in lowercase. The font color of the English article title should be chosen at 50% dark according to the font color.
Times New Roman font should be used in headings. First level section titles should be bold, left aligned and 10 points. Among the letters in the titles, only the first letter should be capital, all other letters should be written in lower case. Second (2.1, 2.2, 3.1 etc.), third (2.1.1, 2.2.2, 3.1.2 etc.) and fourth (22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 etc.) level subtitles should be written italic 10 points font size and left aligned.

Equations should be cited in the text and the equation text and number (for example, Equation (1)) should be blue.
If the equation does not fit on a single line, it can be given in more than one line. If necessary, equations can be given in the main text. However, the equation written in the text should be written on a single line.
Care should be taken to keep the numbers and units given in the main text on the same line. Point should be used as the decimal separator in numbers (for example, 0.51, 5.71 etc.). Thousands digits can be without spaces or with spaces (1000000 or 1 000 000) (10 points).

If the figures are to be presented in both columns, they should be given at the top or at the bottom of the page.
Figures given as pictures should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi and should be clearly visible. The texts in the figure should be clear and legible. The size of the text in the figure should not exceed the text font size. “Times New Roman” font should be used with 8 point font in editable figures.

One blank line should be left before and after the table, except at the beginning and end of the page. 3 pt space should be left after the table title.
If the table covers both columns, it should be given at the top or at the bottom of the page. The spellings in the table should be 8 point "Times New Roman" font. If necessary, the size of the text in the table can be 7 points. Equation editors of MS-Word® 2007 and later versions and MathType should be preferred in writing the equations in the table. The table should be referred to in the main text and the text and number of the table in the text (for example Table 2) should be blue. For more detailed information about the tables, the Article Template file can be viewed.
