Fourth subsections should be underlined. The format of the article is illustrated as follows:


It states the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background. In this section research subject should be explained avoiding giving a detailed literature survey or research results. References should not be given as group or sparse (eg [1-5] or [1, 2, 3, 5, 8]). The contribution of each source should be examined and stated in the text. Also, references should not be hyperlinked.


In case of research driven by experimental study, test procedure / method should be explained in a clear way. If a theoretical study has been carried out, the theoretical method should be given in detail. If the method has been previously mentioned in published studies, the difference of the current study should be stated by referring to the previous studies.

2.1 Materials and Preparation Techniques

2.1.1. Characterization of materials


Results should be clear and concise. Discussion parts should explore the significance of the results of the work by compared them with the literature.


The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short and clear ways.


It can be given before the resources section at the end of the article. A example for “Acknowledgement Section”; This study was supported with Yalova University BAPKO Graduate Thesis Project (2018/YL/0016).



Reference citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets. Some examples:

1. Negotiation research spans many disciplines [3].

2. This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman [5].

3. This effect has been widely studied [1-3, 7].
