All manuscripts are initially screened for relevance, originality, and contribution by the Editors. Only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the scope of the Anadolu Economics will be sent out to two referees for double-blind reviewing. The reviewers are selected according to their expertise by the Editors. The reviewers should not have collaborated with any of the authors before and all reviewers should be from different institutions to the authors. Reviewers are expected to provide a detailed point-by-point review. On the basis of reviewer comments, the Editors may recommend acceptance, revision, or rejection of a manuscript. The Editor in Chief considers all the returned reviews before making an overall decision. If the reviews differ widely, the Editors may invite an additional reviewer so as to get an extra opinion before making a decision. After review of the manuscript by at least two independent reviewers, in addition to the views of the Editor, the decision is relayed to the authors. If accepted, the paper is sent to production. If the article is rejected or sent back for either major or minor revision, the Editor in Chief should include constructive comments from the reviewers to help the author improve the article.
While the views of external reviewers are of primary influence on editorial decisions, the Editorial Board remains responsible for final decisions to or not to publish submitted manuscripts.
