Ethical Principles and Publication Policy

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

For all parties involved in the act of publishing (the author, the journal editor(s), the peer reviewer and the publisher), it is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior. Any kind of unethical behavior is unacceptable, and TJMCS will not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Authors submitting articles to TJMCS affirm that manuscript contents are original. Authors must ensure that they have entirely written original work. By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that the copyright for their article is transferred to the publisher when the article is accepted for publication. Furthermore, they warrant that their article has neither been published elsewhere nor it is under review for publication anywhere.

Authors' Ethical Responsibilities can be summarized as below:

1. The work submitted for publication must have not been published in another magazine or submitted at the same time.

2. Author (s) are required to make use of and/or quote in a complete and accurate way in order to benefit from other studies or to use other studies. The author (s) must have evidence that they have the necessary permissions for the use rights of the data used, research/measurement tools/analyzes.

3. The author (s) has an obligation to communicate with the editor in informing, correcting or withdrawing the journal editor or publisher if he/she finds a mistake or error related to his / her early published or evaluation work.

Review of Manuscripts

The editor must ensure that each manuscript is initially evaluated by the editor for originality. After passing this check, the manuscript is forwarded to two reviewers for single-blind peer review, each of whom will make a recommendation to accept, reject, or modify the manuscript. If both reviewers accept/(reject) the manuscript, it is “accept/(reject)”. In case, the editor received different recommendations from the reviewers, the manuscript is sent to a third reviewer.

Referees' Ethical Responsibilities are given below:

1. Admit only to evaluate the work related to the field of expertise.

2. Assessment should be done objectively only with respect to the content of the work.

3. The evaluation should be carried out on time and on the above ethical responsibility.
