NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS


I. General Rules
1. The Journal of the Faculty of Political Science, which has been published regularly since 1943 and has been a refereed journal since 1999, is published quarterly (in March, June, September, December).
2. Manuscripts submitted to the Journal of the Faculty of Political Science should not have been previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere. The total length of any manuscript submitted should not exceed 25 pages in terms of the journal’s publication format (or 10,000 words). After manuscripts are accepted for publication, all copyright belongs to the Journal of the Faculty of Political Science.
3. Authors must provide their affiliation, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address and ORCID number.
4. The manuscripts should be pared according to the general rules of the journal in order to be sent to the referees. Otherwise the manuscript could be rejected. After the initial review of the editorial board, all manuscripts submitted to the journal are sent to two referees. According to the reviews sent by the referees, manuscripts may be accepted for publication, corrections may be requested, manuscripts may be rejected, or may be sent to third referee.
5. If corrections are requested, after having been corrected, the corrected manuscripts must be returned to the editorial board within two months at the latest.
6. Although the written language of the journal is Turkish, since the journal was first published, articles written in other languages such as English, German and French have also been issued. Regardless of the language of the manuscripts, manuscripts should contain both Turkish and English abstracts that should be between 150 and 200 words in length at the end of manuscripts. Similarly, regardless of the language of the manuscripts, the title of manuscript and also 5 keywords in Turkish and in English should be added to the manuscript.
7. The journal may also give place to “book reviews” and notes under the name of “Chronicle” which examine contemporary events (facts).
8. It is assumed that a final spelling check of manuscripts submitted to the journal has been made and that the manuscript submitted via e-mail is in a state ready to be published. After manuscripts have been submitted, they will not be sent back to the author for editorial corrections. Hence, a greater than usual number of spelling mistakes may lead to the manuscript’s being rejected.
9. The authors are not paid royalties.
10. Manuscripts should be sent as .doc and .pdf files to “sbfdergi@politics.ankara.edu.tr”.
11. One copy of the issue in which the accepted manuscript appears will be sent free to the author(s).
12. For processing submitted manuscripts, authors are required to pay a nonrefundable handling fee of 50 TL to the bank account of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Faculty of Political Science (see details given below) and attach the receipt to the manuscript:
