Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering aims to contribute to scientific and technological development by publishing studies in the fields of basic sciences and engineering sciences within the framework of the publication policy of the journal. Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering publishes research articles and reviews of basic sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) and engineering sciences (Agriculture, Forestry, Aquaculture, Construction, Machinery, Mechatronics, Electricity, Electronics, Energy, Computers, Biomedicals, Maps, Food, Mining etc.) in Turkish and English. The journal is published twice a year (June and December).

The Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering is a peer-reviewed open-access journal. The journal is a party to the Budapest Open Access Movement (BOAI). According to BOAI open access, “peer-review through the scientific literature, via the internet; financial, legal or technical barriers, freely accessible, readable, downloaded, may be copied, distributed, printable, searchable, can be linked to full text, indexable, software, data can be transferred and can be used for any legal purpose as that is.
[See http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/boai-10-recommendations ]

All articles that have been completed and accepted by the peer-review evaluation process are published without any article submission and/or evaluation fee. No fees are charged for journal subscription.

Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering does not accept sponsorship and advertising.

Within the scope of the journal publication policy, "Research Articles" and "Reviews", which are prepared in Turkish and English languages, are accepted.

The works submitted to the Turkish Journal of Science and engineering must be original works that have not been published in any way before or have not been sent to any place for publication. The authors agree to waive the copyright of their work and transfer the copyright of their work to the Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering simultaneously with the submission of articles for evaluation. Authors who will submit their work to the Turkish Journal of Science and engineering should fill out the "Copyright Transfer Agreement Form" document and be signed with a pen and upload a system with the article.

Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering uses the double-blind method in the evaluation process of all articles. The author and peer-review identities are hidden in the double-blind method. The articles are sent to at least two peer-reviews (the third peer-review if needed) related to the subject for evaluation. The acceptance of articles to publication is decided by the editors in accordance with the opinions of the peer-review. The processing time of articles is 3-6 months.

Turkish Journal of Science and Engineering has been an international journal trying to achieve the highest standards of publication ethics since its establishment. In order to achieve this, YÖK undertakes to fulfill its ethical duties and responsibilities on the basis of the guidelines “Directive on Scientific Research and Publication Ethics”, "COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors” and “COPE Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors” published by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and expects authors and peer-review to act within the framework of these guidelines. Depending on COPE's recommendations and general publication requirements, editors, writers, and peer-reviews must have the following responsibilities:
