The Statement on Publication Ethics and Misconduct in Publication is based on the Code of Conduct and Best-Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (Committee on Publication Ethics, 2011).


Editorial Independence

The Journal of Turkic World Studies is committed to ensuring the independence of editorial decisions without the influence of any person or commercial partners.

Intellectual Property and Copyright

The Journal of Turkic World Studies protects the ownership and copyrights of the articles published in the journal and provides a record of the published version of each article. The Journal of Turkic World Studies ensures the integrity and transparency of each published article.

Scientific Misconduct

The Journal of Turkish World Studies always takes appropriate measures against fraudulent publication or publisher plagiarism.



Fair Conduct and Editorial Independence

The editors evaluate the submitted manuscripts on the basis of their academic merit (importance, originality, validity, clarity) as well as their suitability for the scope of the journal. In making this assessment, the editors do not take into account the author’s race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, nationality, religious beliefs, political views, or institutional affiliation.

The editors have full responsibility and authority to accept or reject an article. The Editor has full authority over all editorial content of the journal and the timing of its publication.

Editors should reject incomplete and inaccurate research that does not comply with the journal policy, publication rules and level without any influence.


The editors ensure that articles are evaluated by at least two reviewers via double blind review system and keep the reviewers confidential.

Publication Decisions

The editors ensure that all submitted articles, except news, translations and book reviews, are considered for publication and peer-reviewed by at least two referees who are experts in the field. The editor is responsible for deciding which of the manuscripts submitted to the journal will be published, based on the approval of the work in question, its importance to researchers and readers, the comments of the referees and such legal requirements.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

The editor of the Journal of Turkish World Studies does not allow any conflicts of interest between parties such as authors, referees and editors. Unpublished material in an article submitted to the journal should not be used by anyone without the express written consent of the author.


Articles submitted to the journal are always evaluated out of any bias.



Reviewers evaluate manuscripts irregardless of the origin, gender, sexual orientation or political philosophy of the authors. Reviewers also ensure a fair blind review process for the evaluation of manuscripts submitted to the journal.

Support to the Editor

Reviewers help editors in decision-making and can also assist authors in improving manuscripts.


A reviewer who is not qualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or who knows that it will be impossible to review it in a short period of time should immediately inform the editor and ask to be excused from the review process so that a new reviewer can be assigned.


All information regarding the manuscripts submitted to the journal is kept confidential. Reviewers should not discuss with others except ones who are authorized by the editor.


An objective assessment of the decision is always made by the arbitrators. The arbitrators express their views clearly, with appropriate supporting arguments.

Recognition of Resources

Reviewers should be familiar with published work that is not cited by the authors. Any statement that is an observation, derivation or discussion reported in earlier publications should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also inform the editors of any significant similarities or overlaps between the manuscript in question and any other manuscript (published or unpublished) for which they have personal knowledge. For this purpose, he/she may also make use of similarity reporting software to deepen his/her review.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

Invited reviewers should immediately decline the invitation to review and notify the editors if a conflict of interest (competitive, collaborative, or other relationships with any of the authors, companies, or institutions) arises in relation to the manuscripts they review.

Unpublished material contained in a submitted manuscript should not be used by a reviewer in his or her own research without the express written consent of the authors. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review should be kept confidential and not used for the personal advantage of the reviewer. This also applies to reviewers who decline an invitation to review.



Reporting Standards

A manuscript submitted to the journal must be original and authors must ensure that the manuscript has not been previously published in any journal. The data of the research should be fully described in the article. A manuscript submitted to the journal should include sufficient detail and references to allow others to derive the work.

Data Access and Detention

Authors may be asked to provide the raw data of their study in manuscript form for editorial review and should be prepared to make the data publicly available, if applicable. In any case, authors should ensure that these data are available to other authorized professionals at least 10 years after publication (preferably through an institutional or subject-based repository or other data center), provided that the confidentiality of participants can be maintained. Legal rights to proprietary data do not prevent publication.

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors should ensure that they write and submit only entirely original work and that, if they have used the work and/or statements of others, this is indicated by appropriate attribution. Publications that are influential in determining the quality of the work reported in the article should also be mentioned. Plagiarism takes many forms, from writing someone else’s publication as the author’s, to copying significant parts of others’ work (without attribution) or, in other words, taking the results of research conducted by others. Plagiarism in any form constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Actions against scientific research and publication ethics are as follows:

a) Plagiarism: Presenting the ideas, methods, data, applications, writings, forms or works of others as one’s own work in whole or in part without citing the authors in accordance with scientific rules,

b) Forgery: Producing data that is not based on research, editing or modifying a submitted or published work based on untrue data, reporting or publishing them, presenting a research that has not been conducted as if it has been conducted,

c) Distortion: Falsifying research records and data obtained, falsifying methods, devices and materials that were not used in the research, excluding data that are not in accordance with the research hypothesis, manipulating data and/or results to fit relevant theories or assumptions, falsifying or shaping research results in line with the interests of the persons and organizations receiving support,

d) Re-publication: Presenting more than one work containing the same results of a research as separate works for associate professorship exam evaluations and academic promotions or for other purposes,

e) Slicing: Inappropriately dividing the results of a research into parts in a way that disrupts the integrity of the research and presenting them as separate works in associate professorship exam evaluations and academic promotions or for other purposes by making a large number of publications without citing each other,

f) Unfair authorship: Including persons without active contribution among the authors, not including persons with active contribution among the authors, changing the order of authors in an unjustified and inappropriate manner, omitting the names of active contributors from the work during publication or in subsequent editions, using his/her influence to have his/her name included among the authors even though he/she has not made an active contribution,

g) Other types of ethical violations: Failure to clearly indicate the persons, institutions or organizations that provided support and their contributions to the research in the publications of the research conducted with support, failure to comply with ethical rules in research on humans and animals, failure to respect patient rights in publications, sharing the information contained in a work assigned to review as a referee with others before publication, misuse of resources, spaces, facilities and devices provided or allocated for scientific research, making completely groundless, unwarranted and deliberate accusations of ethical violations (YÖK Scientific Research and Publication Ethics Directive, Article 8).

Plagiarism Policy

Every review submitted to our journal is scanned by the “iThenticate” plagiarism program. Editors, referees and authors are obliged to comply with international publication ethics rules and the articles must comply with the spelling rules.

Multiple, Duplicate, Redundant or Concurrent Submissions / Publications

The same study should not be published in more than one journal or primary publication. Therefore, authors should not submit an article for review that has already been published in another journal. Submitting an article to more than one journal at the same time is unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

It is sometimes necessary for some articles (such as clinical guidelines, translations) to be published in more than one journal, provided that certain conditions are met. The authors and editors of the journals involved must accept the secondary publication, which should reflect the same data and interpretation of the main document. The primary reference must be cited in the secondary publication.

Multiple Authors

If the manuscript has more than one author, individuals who did not contribute intellectually to the content of the manuscript should not be listed as author(s). Authors of the candidate paper should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the submitted work. The authors of the manuscript are finalized before the submission of the manuscript. It is unacceptable to include the names of those who have not contributed to the work in the candidate article (gift authorship) or to omit the names of those who have contributed (ghost authorship). Changing the author responsibilities (such as adding authors, changing the order of authors, removing authors, etc.) cannot be proposed for a study whose evaluation process has started.

Legal / Special Permission Required for Articles

The following cases require legal / special permission from the articles sent to TDID, thus a permission document is requested from the author. In the articles to be published, it is stated in the title footnote of the article whether ethics committee permission, legal / special permission is required. If it is necessary to obtain these permissions, it is requested from the author(s) to clearly state that the permission was obtained from which institution, on which date and with which decision number and it is published as an “Appendix” at the end of the article. The author(s) must have a document showing that they have the rights to use the data obtained, the necessary permissions for the research/analyses, or that the consent of the experimental subjects.

Early View or Assessment Phase

In the event that the author(s) becomes aware of an inaccuracy or error in a published, early view, or under review manuscript, the author(s) has an obligation to notify the journal editor or publisher and to cooperate with the editor in correcting or withdrawing the manuscript.

However, if an author identifies a significant inaccuracy in an article published in TDID, he/she must immediately notify the editor of the journal and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the article.



The editors and editorial board are not responsible for the views expressed by the authors and the content of the articles published in the journal. Originality, proofreading and errors are the responsibility of individual authors. All manuscripts submitted for review and publication in the Journal of Turkish World Studies are subjected to double-blind review for originality, ethical issues and useful contributions. The decisions of the referees are the only means of publication in the journal and are final.
