For the papers presented in a congress or symposium, the name, place and the dates of the congress or symposium should be stated and for the papers sponsored by an institution, the name of the institution and the project number should be written.

After editorial pre-evaluation, manuscripts will be sent to three referees and they will be sent back to the authors for any corrections when necessary and in this case, it is authors’ own responsibility to return the emended manuscript to the journal, so that the referees re-evaluate the manuscript. If two of the referees state negative opinions on the manuscript, the paper will be rejected and not admitted for publication. However, about the papers on which the referees agree positively, the editor will reach the final decision to publish or not based on his/her own evaluation and the opinions of the referees.

Authors are responsible for the opinions expressed in the paper and manuscripts submitted to the JTES will not be returned whether they are published or not. It is obligatory for the researchers to keep the data for 5 years. Due to our publishing policies, from time to time some of the data and analysis programs may be requested from the authors.
