The Journal of Iranian Studies is an international academic journal published twice a year by the Middle East Institute of Sakarya University in June and December. The journal plans to contribute to the analyses of Iran scientifically and objectively by publishing articles with scientific qualities at national and international level. The journal accepts articles about Iran from different social disciplines like history, politics, social politics, economic politics, social studies, religious and sectarian studies, arts and literature disciplines. The magazine is published in Turkish and English and it is planned to accept Persian articles in the coming period.
Since the journal adopts the Budapest Open Access Initiative principles, it provides immediate open access to its content and no fees are charged during the application phase or subsequent processes from the articles submitted to our journal. The articles submitted to our journals are passed from the originality scan (iThenticate) in order to avoid plagiarism. Submitted manuscripts will be published after examination in the editorial board, with two specialized jurisdictions (two-sided blind arbitration), a third judging if necessary, and the final approval of the editorial board. The editorial board may review the manuscripts (symposium, congress news, book introductions etc.) outside the research articles and give a direct acceptance and rejection decision without sending a referee.
