Peer Review Process and Publication Policy

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.

Plagiarism Policy

Anadolu Economics will not tolerate any form of plagiarism and duplicate (redundant) publication. Hence, the authors should check the manuscript content before submitting it to the Journal. Manuscripts are screened for plagiarism by the co-editors for all the submissions using iThenticate software before publishing online. If the manuscript is found to have an unacceptable level of similarity, it will be rejected and the author will be informed that the manuscript is not accepted to be published in the Journal.

Ethical Principals and Responsibilities

Anadolu Economics works hard to ensure the content of the journal is ethically sound. To achieve that goal, we closely follow the advice laid out in the guidelines and flowcharts on the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) website.

Ethical approval must have been obtained from the appropriate ethics committee to confirm the study meets ethical standards. Any research using qualitative or quantitative approaches that requires data collection from participants using iquestionnaires or interviews must be approved by an ethical committee. A statement to confirm this must be included in the first page of the manuscript in a separate section entitled “Compliance with Ethical Standards” when submitting a paper, which must provide details of the name of the ethics committee and reference/permit numbers where available. Otherwise, "ethical committee approval is not required" should be written for studies that do not require ethical committee approval.

Ethical responsibilities for the Authors:

1. All submitted works to Anadolu Economics must be entirely original and used sources and materials should be appropriately cited. Any attempt of plagiarism should be followed by the rejection of the submitted manuscript.

2. The manuscripts should not have appeared elsewhere, and should not be submitted for publication elsewhere while under consideration by the Journal.

3. Authors should not submit the same work or describe essentially the same research in more than one journal.

4. The authors acknowledge that any part of the article does not violate the copyrights of other real and legal entity.

Ethical responsibilities for the Reviewers:

1. The reviewers are bound to treat information regarding manuscripts submitted by authors as privileged information and keep them confidential.

2. In evaluating the submitted works, the reviewers should limit themselves only to the scientific content.

3. Reviewers should immediately notify the editors of Anadolu Economics of any misconduct on the part of any author(s) (e.g. plagiarism, any other unethical activities).

Ethical responsibilities for the Editors:

1. Editors are obliged to make decisions based solely on the scientific evaluation of the article, regardless of the authors' origin, including the authors' ethnicity, political views, and religion.

2. Editors will not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, and the publisher. Any manuscripts received for review are confidential documents and should be treated as such.

3. In case of suspicion of misconduct, plagiarism or other unethical activities related to the authors, Editors are obliged to manage the process within the framework of the relevant recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

4. In case of a suspicion of ghost, guest or gift authership, Editors are obliged to manage the process within the framework of the relevant recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

5. In case of a suspicion of conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships/connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers, Editors are obliged to manage the process within the framework of the relevant recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
