Submission to the journal
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere including electronically in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyright-holder.
After acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete a 'Journal Publishing Agreement'. An e-mail will be sent to the corresponding author confirming receipt of the manuscript together with a 'Journal Publishing Agreement' form.
Submission to this journal proceeds totally online. All papers are refereed through a double blind process. Please send one copy of your manuscript in the form of an MS Word file attached to an e-mail to Editor-in-Chief Turan Paksoy (email@example.com).
Please submit, with the manuscript, the names, addresses and e-mail addresses of 3 potential referees. Note that the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested reviewers are used.
Details of file formats
Language. Articles must be written in good English. Papers written in poor English will be rejected and not sent out for review.
Length. Articles should be as concise as possible. Regular articles should not exceed 25 standard manuscript pages, including tables and figures. A standard manuscript page is A4 or letter size, text with 1.5 line spacing, 12 pt font and ample margins.
Title. Please avoid abbreviations and formulas. Concise and informative.
Author names and affiliations. Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly using appropriate script (capital cases as first letter of authors' first and surnames followed by lower cases). Present the Authors' affiliation addresses below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the Author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and, if available, the e-mail address of each Author.
Corresponding Author. Clearly indicate who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.
Abstract. An abstract of between 50 and 250 words should state the purpose of the research and the main results. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. Abstracts should not contain formulae.
Keywords. The total number of keywords should not exceed five.
Word template should be used for the preparation of the manuscript for this journal.
All citations in the text should refer to:
- Single Author: the Author's name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication;
