Writing Rules

  • Seatific Journal is a double-blind, peer-revieawed biannually academic journal publishing articles in both English and Turkish.
  • Author(s) should remove all author(s)’ names and any personal information that can be used to identify the author(s).
  • All articles submitted to Seatific Journal will be uploaded to iThenticate to check the similarity rate of the paper. The Seatific Journal Desk immediately rejects any articles with a similarity rate greater than 10%.
  • All submitted articles to Seatific Journal are uploaded to iThenticate to check the similarity ratio of the paper. If the similarity is more than 10%, the article is directly rejected by the Seatific Journal Desk.
  • In order to gain acceptance, all articles submitted to Seatific Journal for evaluation are required to have never previously been published.
  • Submissions are first reviewed by the editorial board. If an article satisfies the necessary conditions for style and content, reviewers will then proceed to evaluate its suitability for publication.
  • Articles under the categories listed below are acceptable for publication:
    • Research Articles reflecting original experimental and/or theoretical research. A coherent treatment emphasizing new insight is expected rather than a simple accumulation of data.
    • Review Articles including authoritative reviews of recent advances in the basic and applied sciences with emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the subject. Manuscripts are generally longer than those found in other categories, but contributions dealing in part with original research are not excluded. Contributors who are invited by the editors or who may submit outline proposals directly are offered a small royalty upon the publication of the article.
  • All articles undergo evaluation by two anonymous reviewers. If necessary, the article may be sent to a third reviewer for further assessment. The publication of an article depends upon the approval of these reviewers. Author(s) must provide the necessary corrections demanded by the reviewers.
  • In general, any submitted work should provide the following formatting conditions.
    • No page limit or required format is needed for initial submission. A template will be sent to the author(s) of accepted articles. This can also be downloaded from the link below.
    • Articles should be written in MS Word in Times New Roman script with 12-pt font size, spacing of 1.5 lines, 2.5 cm margins, and left-aligned.
    • Tables, figures, pictures, and graphs should fit within a journal page (A4). If needed, these may be written with smaller font sizes and single-spaced.
    • Tables and graphs should be numbered consecutively as they appear in the text. Place footnotes for tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical text layout. Be sparing in the use of tables, and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
  • Author(s) and article information should be filled out completely on the form in the system. The article should not contain any information about the author(s).
  • The study must include an abstract between 150-200 words in length and 5-8 keywords.
  • Author(s) should reference and explain every figure, table, and equation used in the article.
  • Corresponding author(s) should also fill out the author contributions form.
  • Articles should be submitted using the online submission system to initiate the editing process. An automatic confirmation e-mail will be sent after submission. If you do not receive this e-mail, please contact us via e-mail at seatific@yildiz.edu.tr
