Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice

International Journal of Contemporary Tourism Research (IJCTR) is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices. All authors submitting their works to the IJCTR journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works. The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it. In the same manner, the IJCTR journal is committed to objective and fair blind peer-review of the submitted for publication works and to prevent any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the Editor, who is unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of problem.


Blind Peer-Review Policy

Articles for consideration should be submitted using the online submission form. Submissions through e-mail will not be considered. Submission is electronic only. Manuscripts are reviewed in an unbiased manner, receiving prompt attention by the editorial office and its reviewers. After a preliminary assessment of the suitability of the paper by the Editor, any paper will follow a blind peer review process. The review criteria considered are the novelty and originality of the paper, the quality of research methodology, the organization and clarity, the reference to prior work, and the quality of results. Reviewers are matched to the paper according to their expertise and our database is constantly being updated. Reviewers are also asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

- Is original
- Is methodologically sound
- Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
- Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
- Correctly references previous relevant work.

Language correction is not part of the blind peer-review process, but reviewers may, if so wish, to suggest corrections to the manuscript. On the other hand, the required time for the review process is dependent on the response of the reviewers. Should the reviewer’s reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. In rare cases for which it is extremely difficult to find a second reviewer to review the manuscript, or when the one reviewer’s report has thoroughly convinced the Editor, decisions at this stage to accept, reject or ask the author for a revision are made on the basis of only one reviewer’s report. The Editor’s decision will be sent to the author with recommendations made by the reviewers, which usually includes verbatim comments by the reviewers. Revised manuscripts might be returned to the initial Reviewers who may then request another revision of a manuscript. A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the reviewers and may include verbatim comments by the reviewers. Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept, revision or reject the article. The goal of the Editorial office is of providing the reviewers' reports, and the final decision by the Editor, within ten weeks since submission. The whole process will be handled by the Managing Editor, to whom all inquiries should be addressed.

The IJCTR is committed to keeping the content of all submissions confidential until the publication date. Although we make every possible effort to ensure reviewers honor their confidentiality commitments, we cannot be held responsible for the conduct of reviewers. Reviewers should be aware that it is our policy to keep their names confidential, and that we do our utmost to ensure this confidentiality.

IJCTR's general principles of specified purposes are listed below:

* IJCTR publishes biannually.
* IJCTR publishes in Turkish and English.
* Scientific articles are published and empirical (practical/experimental) researches are given priority in the journal.
* The responsibility of opinions expressed in articles entirely belong to the authors
* The studies submitted to IJCTR for publications must not be published in other journals before.
* The studies submitted to IJCTR should be prepared by entirely obeying the scientific ethics rules.
* Copyright fees or any other payments under another name are not paid to the authors for their articles.
* The authors who submit studies to the journal are considered as agreed not to demand this kind of claim.
