LATER is currently under evaluation to be indexed in ULAKBİM TR Index, and it has updated its coverage criteria for Journal Evaluation this year (starting from 2020) in relation to research ethics. Therefore, as of May 2020, authors who are considering to submit papers are required to obtain an ethical committee approval from their institutions IF the type of article and data collection tools (e.g. questionnaires, interviews, observations, experiments etc.) necessitate to do so. The ethics approval statement should be mentioned as a footnote on the first page of the submission as well as under the Methodology section with the information including the approving institution, approval no and date. The ethics approval document needs to be uploaded along with the submission file and similarity report during the first submission. Irrespective of being qualitative, quantitative or mixed, research articles must have this document, with the exception of review articles and papers from MA or PhD dissertations. Phenomenological studies, alongside the ethics approval, also need to include the statement under the Methodology that informed consent form has been signed by the participants. Evaluation process will NOT be initiated for papers without the ethics approval document.
