Publishing Policies

September 1th, 2013 by Author

1. Texts sent to JCER as copyright, translation, evaluation and introduction of a book are admitted to the evaluation process.

2. It is important that articles or texts sent to the journal should not be published or sent for evaluation anywhere else.

3. If the texts have been presented in a congress, symposium or conference before, they can be published only if the data and place are mentioned and if approved by the editorial board. Any responsibility regarding this belongs to the author(s).

4. Texts sent by the authors are first examined by the editorial board within the context of the Journal’s Principles of Publication. If there are parts to be corrected by the author, the text is sent back to the author for correction.

5. Texts inappropriate to the Journal’s Principles of Publication are not sent to the refree(s) or published.

6. Texts approved by the editorial board are sent to two refrees via the same system. If considered necessary, the text is sent two more than two refrees for evaluation. The final decision regarding the study to be published is made considering the majority views of the refrees. The suggestions of the refrees are followed meticulously by the editor. The journal has the right to make corrections in the texts and to publish or not to publish the texts. In the studies sent for evaluation, the names of the author(s) and of the refrees are reciprocally kept confidential.

7. Author(s) can object to the negative views of the refrees if they provide related evidence. This objection is examined, and if considered necessary, different refrees are asked for their views.  

8. Refrees may want to see the corrected version of the article before publication. In this case, the text saved in the system automatically appears on the page of the refree for examination.

9. The editorial board checks whether the refrees send the reports in the pre-determined time. If the reports are not returned in the pre-determined time, a new refree is appointed by the editorial board for the examination of the text.

10. If the text is approved for publication, the author is informed via a message about in which issue of the journal the text will be published.

11. All the processes occur in the electronic environment. 


Guidelines for Publication and Showing Reference

1.The text should start with “Introduction”, which includes the purpose, scope, the related approaches in literature and the method applied in the study. At the end of the text, there should be such parts as “Discussion and Conclusion” - and if any, “Suggestions”- in which the findings obtained are presented.

2. All the paragraphs in the main text should start with an indentation of 1,25 cm; the font-size should be 11 and the font-character be Palatino with a line-space of 1,5, including the notes and references. The text should be placed on the page with a space of 3cm on the left, 2 cm on the right, 4 cm from the top and 3 cm from the bottom without giving any page number.

3. The Turkish title of the article should be written in bold-type using the font-size of 14; the font-character of Palatino; 15 words at most and all with capital letters; aligned in the middle; and followed by an English title written in bold-type using the font-size of 12; the font-character of Palatino; aligned in the middle; and all the words only with the initial letters being capital. Just below the English title, the names of the authors should be written in bold-type using the font-size of 12 and the font-character of Palatino and aligned in the middle. The Turkish and English abstracts should be placed under the names of the authors. The abstracts should be written using the font-size of 10 and the font-character of Palatino, aligned on both sides. One-line space should be left under the abstract, and at least 3 and at most 5 key words should be written.

4. YThe text should not exceed 25 pages including the notes, tables, figures, graphics and references. Figures, pictures, graphics and charts should be numbered in order, and where necessary in the text, the order should be mentioned; titles should be written over; and if cited, the reference should be given as footnotes.

5. The names of the tables and figures should be written in bold-type using the font-size of 10 and the font-character of Palatino, aligned on the left. The writings in the tables and figures should be in font-type of 10 with the font-character of Palatino. For the table demonstration, horizontal lines should be used.

6.The text to be sent should be typed using the word processor of Ms Word.

7. While giving references in the text, the APA 6.0 style, one of the common methods of citing references, should be used. It is the authors’ responsibility whether the references are correct or not. The notes and references should be separated. If any, the notes should be numbered in the text and placed at the bottom of the page in order.

8. In studies sent to the journal, special attention should be paid to language use in terms of spelling, punctuation, grammatical accuracy, clarity, comprehensibility and so on. Therefore, the author is responsible for any problems and criticism likely to occur.

The texts sent to JCER should be written using the American Psychological Association (APA) style while giving the references and the footnotes
