Some tips for the double-blind peer review process. A few tips:

• If you need to refer to your own work, use wording such as ‘previous research has demonstrated’ not ‘our previous research has demonstrated’.
• If you need to refer to your own, currently unpublished work, don’t include this work in the reference list.
• Any acknowledgments or author biographies should be uploaded as separate files.
• Carry out a final check to ensure that no author names appear anywhere in the manuscript. This includes in figures or captions.

•All articles should be submitted through our Dergi Park system by the corresponding author.

ARTICLE PREPARATION

Please use this Journal template,

Please use this Copyright agreement: (Download and then upload this file),

This notation guide has prepared as a general notation and physical review to the authors. You may find the writing styles as described in the below paragraphs. We’re strongly suggest to follow the pre-styled document from here.

In order to build a scientific article to achieve its purpose, the author should express the problem, approach to the problem and solutions in a clear and understandable language. If the article is not expressed clearly, readers will not be able to draw sufficient conclusions from the article and scientific writing will not reach its purpose. The open problem mentioned should make a new contribution to the literature. However, he should have conveyed the words that would explain his command of the literature in a way to convey his domination of similar articles and problems previously published on the subject.

Scientific writing; should be expressed in effective, clear and meaningful words. Therefore, the scientist must be cultured to be successful in this endeavor. We must all admit that “English has almost become the universal language of science” (E. Garfield, The Scientist, 7 September 1987, p.9). All scientists should learn to use English with precision. English does not need to be written in a complex and requiring native-level knowledge to be understood. In a scientific article it is said: “The best English is English that gives meaning with the least number of short words” (an authoritative expression printed in the Directives for Authors section of the Journal of Bacteriology).

We strongly advise to follow IMRaD approach to the authors as seen in Fig. 1.The IMRaD logic can be defined in the questionnaire: Which problem has been studied? Answer: Introduction. How was the problem studied? Answer: Methods. What was found? Answer: Results. What does these mean? Answer: Discussion. The IMRaD format, which has been advancing slowly since the late 19th century, found an almost universal use in research journals. Today, this area of usage helps the author in editing and writing the text; It seems that it provides an easy roadmap for editors, reviewers and ultimately readers who read and watch the article.


The journal only accepts;

• Research articles 
• Review articles.

This article type should be selected when uploading. Research articles expected not to exceed 5000 to 7000 words limits. Full paper articles are original, high quality, scientific findings that reveal a unstudied and unpublished studies.

For review articles, not to exceed 7000 to 9000 words limit at most. The review article should reveal the point reached on the subject or bring together the studies done so far around the relevant subject to provide clarity. There is a strict policy to evaluate the review articles.


Full paper articles should include below sections.

• Title
• Authors
• Abstract

Mathematical Formulas and Equations
Mathematical formulas or equations to be included in the articles should be prepared as editable with MS Word add-ins. Authors will be asked to correct mathematical formulas or equations inserted as pictures. Mathematical formulas or equations should be left-aligned. There should be a blank line between the equations and other content. Also, mathematical formulas or equations should be numbered using Latin numerals. Equations should be written in Equation style. 

Using of Visual Materials
The articles contain photos, graphics, etc. will take place. Visual materials should be legible, at least 600 DPI resolution and clear. Preferred visual file formats; .jpeg, .jpg, .png. Visual materials should be placed in a single-column layout near the place of first application. There should not be any margins when placing the images. If the images contain text, it is desirable to use the Garamond font. Images should be numbered using Latin numerals without leaving line spacing such as “Figure 1: Figure legend” below the image. References should be made according to the journal reference method. Visual materials should be placed in Figure Centered style.

Tables
Tables in your article should be in editable format. The tables given as pictures or photographs will be asked to be corrected.
Tables should be placed near where they were first mentioned in a single column layout. Table layout should not bleed into the margins.
