Author Guidelines

Publication Ethics

For all parties involved in the act of publishing (the author, the journal editor(s), the peer reviewer and the publisher), it is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior. Any kind of unethical behavior is unacceptable, and TJMCS will not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Authors submitting articles to TJMCS affirm that manuscript contents are original. Authors must ensure that they have entirely written original work. By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that the copyright for their article is transferred to the publisher when the article is accepted for publication. Furthermore, they warrant that their article has neither been published elsewhere nor it is under review for publication anywhere.

Review of Manuscripts

The editor must ensure that each manuscript is initially evaluated by the editor for originality. After passing this check, the manuscript is forwarded to two reviewers for single-blind peer review, each of whom will make a recommendation to accept, reject, or modify the manuscript. If both reviewers accept/(reject) the manuscript, it is “accept/(reject)”. In case, the editor received different recommendations from the reviewers, the manuscript is sent to a third reviewer.

Instructions for Authors

The style of the article should be concise. The first page of the manuscript should contain the title of the article, author’s name, current postal and e-mail addresses, and an informative abstract which should not exceed 100 characters. The main body of the manuscript should include the abstract which should be a summary of the entire paper. The abstract should be followed by a list of not more than six keywords, two to six classification codes from the Mathematics Subject Classification Scheme. Furthermore, the text should be divided into numbered sections with appropriate subheadings. Figures and tables should be incorporated into the text. References should be listed in alphabetical order according to the (first) author’s surname, be numbered and referred in the text by the same number in square brackets.

  • contain original work - not published elsewhere in any medium (in the whole or in part) by the authors or anyone else and not under consideration for publication in any other medium;  
  • focus on the aims and scope of the journal;
  • be clearly and correctly written - should contain all essential features of a scientific publication that is easy to understand for the target audience;  
  • written in English - attention to detail of the language will avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper;

The manuscript will be written in LaTeX typesetting system. The TJMCS (Turk. J. Math. Comput. Sci.) style file can be downloaded from the following link.
