The Turkish Yearbook of International Relations is committed to ensure submissions in accordance with academic and ethical standards. The Turkish Yearbook of International Relations, in addition to Notes for Contributors, is guided by the following principles:
The authors should ensure that they have written original works. Authors should not submit the same work in more than one journal. The editorial board in order to prevent the submitting of the same manuscript to more than one journal, requests from authors to sign a commitment letter before the review process.
Editorial Board Responsibilities
The editorial board of the Turkish Yearbook of International Relations are collectively responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal would be published. The editorial board ensure the originality of written work before publication by submitting them to the iThenticate program, which has a database of over 60 billion web pages and 155 million content items, including 49 million works from 800 scholarly publisher participants.
The journal adheres to blind review process. The reviewers are bound to treat the manuscript received for peer reviewing as confidential, and must not use the information obtained through peer review for personal advantage. The reviews should be conducted objectively and personal criticism of the author/authors is inappropriate.
