  • Articles should be written in English or Turkish. English title, abstract and keywords sections are mandatory for manuscripts written in Turkish.

  • Each author's ORCID number (https://orcid.org/) must be submitted.
  • The submission file must be in Microsoft Word document file format.
  • URLs and DOI numbers of references should be given where available.
  • Text; All figures, pictures and tables should be submitted in the text, with single-spaced, 10-point font, italicized instead of underlined (except URL addresses). For printing, quality copies of the pictures (in JPG or TIFF format) should be sent as an attachment file.
  • The title of the article should be appropriate and understandable to the content of the article. All headings should be written in bold font.
  • Acknowledgments regarding the individual or institutional financial support provided for the research should be included in a separate section at the end of the article.
  • All article sections except the abstract, acknowledgments and reference sections should be numbered. The manuscript should be arranged in the form of Abstract, Main Text, Acknowledgments (if necessary) and References.
  • Mathematical expressions should be written using the "Equation Editor". Mathematical expressions should be numbered in parentheses.
