Publication Principles:

Articles submitted for publication are evaluated by national and / or international referees; the acceptance-rejection decision is made by the editors taking into account the referee opinions. The names of the referees evaluating the articles are not reported to the authors (blind peer review). The referees' reviews of double-blind peer reviews are left to the author's preference. Authors who want to use this preference should delete name and address lines of their articles and upload them to the system. A major (re-send for evaluation) or minor (correction required) revision decision is made to develop articles that are not considered sufficient in line with the referee's suggestions. Articles that are not considered sufficient scientifically are rejected. The major revision referees given about the article must be made within 30 days for the decision of the changes requested and within 15 days for the minor revision decision. Otherwise, the article is rejected.
