Author Guidelines


1.             The original paper size of the Journal of Art History is 16,5 x 24 cm. However, it is suggested to prepare the articles in A4 size as MS Word document; leave 3 cm blank upside and bottom and 2 cm blank from right and left. The text must be written in 12 point Times New Roman  font size with 1,2 pitch; the main headings must be arranged in bold and 13 point and the sub-headings of the text must be arranged in bold and 12,5 point. The paragraph style of the text must be set as “justified” and the first indent must be set as 1,25 cm. (There isn’t a certain limitation for page and visual material for the articles; however, it is requested that the document, which must be prepared in accordance with the beforementioned standards, does not exceed 30 pages in total.)


2.            The name of the writer/writers, title and corporation information, Orcid ID, postal address, e-mail adress and phone number must be available on the cover page attached to the article. [In accordance with the “blind reviewing” principle, the article is sent to the reviewers anonymously. In case the process results favorably, the name of the writer and the related information are added to the first page of the article prepared appropriately for the publication.]


3.       The title of the manuscript must be given in both Turkish & English on the top.

The titles should be followed by abstracts in both Turkish and English. The abstract should be in order that contains summaries of the main parts of the article (such as introduction, method, findings, evaluation, conclusion, discussion and suggestions...)  to allow the reader able to understand the content of the article and to determine its relation to his / her interests. The length of the abstract should be minimum 150 and maximum 250 words. In the abstract, footnotes, tables, photographs etc. should not be used and should not be any referance to any page of the article. The abstracts in Turkish and English should be coherent with each other.

Each abstract (Turkish & English) must have five keywords beneath.


4.       The footnotes must have an automatic and coherent numbering added with the “add footnote” feature of MS Word; they must be presented under the page; must not be arranged in the form of “endnote.” (footnotes must be typed in Times New Roman fonts & 10 pt)


5.      For the studies previously presented at a symposium or a congress but not published yet, the name, place and date of the symposium/congress must be indicated. If the article is the product of a research or a project supported by an institution, the project number must be stated. If the study is a compilation product of a doctorate or master thesis, it must be indicated.


6.        If the article contains texts written in an alphabet aside from the Latin alphabet, for example if a special text font supporting Cyrillic, Arabic or Greek letters is used, it is important to specify the related font to the editor and add the font file to the delivery.


7.        There must be a “bibliography” section at the end of the article. References to the sources must be given as footnotes; not within the text. (Note: Sources in the Bibliyography should be reaally used / referred within the text of the article.) Direct quotations e.g. expressions, sentences or paragraphs taken from a source must be enclosed in quotation marks. At the end of the quoted text, the source should be referred by a footnote.

        Writing principles of the Bibliography and footnote (reference/attribution) are exemplified at the end of this section.


8.      The visual materials (photograph, picture, figure, drawing etc.) can be placed either within or at the end of the text. All the visual materials must have their own names/explanatory information. However, during the publishing process, the last makeup of the article shall be made by the editor. All of the visual materials must be uploaded in one of the jpeg, png, tiff formats and in an appropriate quality to publish (300 dpi, preferably), and then sent separate from the Word file containing the text. It should be paid attention that these files must be named in a consistent way with the reference within the text.


9.     While writing the abbreviations used at the article, (for example, BC, AD, cm, Ph.D.) official abbreviation indexes of the language the article is written in (Turkish or English) must be adapted. (Besides this, when a reference is made to a component such as picture, photograph, figure, drawing within the text, the abbreviations pic., photo, fig., dwg. can be used.) Special/personal abbreviatons which do not exist at the guide and indexes must be defined at the end of the article.


10.     The article text must be submitted through uploading to the system of DergiPark. [In order to perform this, the writers should check in for membership to system of DergiPark, join the Journal of Art History ( on the system as the “user” and follow the uploading steps pressing the “submit a manuscript” button at the journal page.

Suggestion for solution can be asked for by keeping in contact with the editor over the address, during the extreme situations when the upload cannot be practiced over DergiPark.

         If the articles (especially table, italic/bold parts) contain such special fonts as Arabic, Ottoman Turkish, Greek, Chinese, creating a pdf copy of the document and adding to the post is proposed as a precaution against possible incompatibilities at the Word file.
