Supplementary materials

It is preferable that authors provide supplementary materials for readers to see the data they may need, e.g. extra data/figures/tables, original spectra (NMR, TEM, MS) or chromatogram, etc. Supplementary materials will be included in the Supporting Information link. These materials will be evaluated by the referees but will be printed as accepted. Please submit all the supplementary materials as a single file (word file). Supplementary materials should be referred to in the main text.

All submission and evaluation procedures are carried out through a manuscript processing and journal archiving service “www.dergipark.org.tr”.

Authorship, Originality, and Plagiarism
The authors accept that the work is completely original and that the works of others have been appropriately cited or quoted in the text with the necessary permissions. The authors should avoid plagiarism. It is recommended that they check the article using appropriate software such as Ithenticate and CrossCheck. The responsibility for this matter rests entirely with the authors. All authors will be notified when the manuscript is submitted. If a change of author is needed, the reason for the change should be indicated. Once the manuscript is accepted, no author changes can be made.

Proofs will be carefully prepared to avoid corrections or changes after acceptance. Corresponding authors should check the proofs within the specified time and send corrections or changes as a word file in a list format that provides page and line numbers. Also, corrections can be sent as an explained pdf file of proofs.

Review process
In the first step, the editor will evaluate if the content of the manuscript is suitable for the aims and scope of the journal and then the blind review process will continue. The manuscript will be sent to two or three referees and, if necessary, to more referees. Referees may request more data related to the manuscript from the authors. After receiving the comments and suggestions of the referees, the editor makes a general evaluation and makes a final decision of acceptance or rejection.
