Article Referee Process

The first version of the manuscripts submitted to our journal is subjected to editorial review within 1 week. If the study that completes the editorial process is deemed appropriate for the publication principles of the journal, the referee process is initiated. The abstract/abstract of the study is shared with the referees who are experts in the subject of the submitted study. They are asked for information about whether they can contribute to our journal during the refereeing process. The full text of the study is sent to the referees who approve the refereeing and they are notified of the 15-day referee evaluation period. If the referees to whom the abstract/abstract is sent indicate that they are not available, positive notification is expected from different referees. The reports from the referees who have completed the evaluation process are forwarded to the authors. If 2 referees report that the manuscript is unpublishable or 1 referee reports that the manuscript is unpublishable and 1 referee gives a major correction, the manuscript is rejected. The manuscript in which 1 referee reports unpublishable and 1 referee gives minor correction is sent to the 3rd referee. According to the report of 3 referees, the manuscript is rejected or sent to the author with a request for correction. All these processes take 30-50 days on average.
