Publication Policy

Publication Policy
-JIENS is a peer-reviewed journal published electronically twice a year (January, July). The journal accepts original research articles, postgraduate thesis papers, review articles, and editor letters written in Turkish or English language.

-Manuscripts submitted to JIENS for evaluation must not have been published elsewhere or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts submitted for evaluation should be prepared using the template provided in the journal article writing format. There is no page limit for the manuscripts. The abstract of the article should contain a minimum of 100 and a maximum of 250 words, and the number of keywords should be between 3 and 8.

-Manuscripts submitted for publication in JIENS are expected to comply with the journal writing rules, present new knowledge, propose a new method, or provide a new perspective to existing knowledge. The results of the research presented in the manuscripts should be clearly and honestly presented without fabrication, falsification, or inappropriate data manipulation. Authors should provide references for all the citations used in their manuscripts, and references should be listed at the end of the manuscript following the writing rules. For studies requiring ethics committee approval, the ethics committee report should be included during the manuscript submission.

-All authors share equal responsibility regarding ethical principles. The copyright transfer form, in which all authors approve their responsibilities related to the publication, must be uploaded to the system with wet signatures of all authors. A similarity check is performed for all publications during the preliminary control stage. Publications with a similarity rate of more than 20% are not evaluated.

-The author can withdraw their article until the referee is invited. In the interest of objective publishing, our journal applies a blind peer review system, and the manuscripts are published after being evaluated by at least two referees. It is expected that the referees evaluate the manuscripts within 15 days of receipt. In case this period is exceeded, the editors assign new referees and withdraw the request from the previous referee.

-After the referee evaluation, the decision of acceptance or rejection of the manuscript is made by the editors. Manuscripts that are deemed insufficient based on the referee recommendations receive either a major revision (resubmission for evaluation) or a minor revision (corrections required) decision. After the "resubmission for evaluation" or "corrections required" decision is given for the manuscript, the necessary changes are expected to be made by the author within 30 days for the "resubmission for evaluation" decision and 20 days for the "corrections required" decision. Otherwise, the manuscript will be rejected. Manuscripts that are reuploaded after corrections but still deemed insufficient from a scientific perspective will be rejected.

-After publication, discussions and corrections made by authors or readers regarding the articles are done by submitting 'letters to the editor' and 'correction' files through the article submission section. Following the editor's review, if there are issues requiring additional evaluation, referees are appointed, and the process is completed with support from different institutions and organizations. The files containing discussions and corrections made after the process are published under the title of 'correction article' in the next issue. When the Editorial Board receives a request from the author(s) to withdraw a manuscript during the evaluation process, they respond in writing to the author(s) within 10 days at the latest after a brief review. If there are suspicions of copyright infringement, ethical violations, or plagiarism in the early appearance or published electronic version of a manuscript during the evaluation process, the Journal's Editorial Board is obligated to initiate an urgent investigation. Upon investigation, if the Editorial Board determines that a manuscript in the evaluation stage violates ethical principles, contains plagiarism, or does not comply with copyright regulations, they withdraw the manuscript. The Editorial Board decision, including the reasons regarding the manuscript, is communicated to the author(s). If the Editorial Board determines that an early appearance or electronically published manuscript violates ethical principles, contains plagiarism, or does not comply with copyright regulations, they promptly notify the decision, along with the evidence, to the author(s), the authors' institutions, the relevant Institute if the article is part of a thesis, and other organizations if applicable, in writing.

-Our journal operates on an open-access system. Published articles in the journal are freely accessible. No fees are charged to authors for manuscript submission or publication.

-Each issue can include a maximum of "40" articles. Manuscripts will be published in the order of acceptance. Accepted articles will be assigned DOI numbers.
