Referee evaluation and completion of the process

The articles that pass the preliminary evaluation are sent to two referees with the title of doctor in the field for evaluation. Referees press the accept button in the message sent to their e-mails and accept to evaluate.

Referee evaluation period is 15 days. 1st warning is sent for arbitrations that are not made within 15 days. 7 days additional time is given. If it is not done again, a 2nd warning and an additional 7 days will be given. If it is not done again, a new referee will be assigned to the article without a third warning.

After the referees accept to evaluate, they download the article from the system. The referee fills the evaluation form on the system. Writes evaluation messages to the author and editor. Marks the evaluation result. If he has made an evaluation on the text of the article, he sends that text to the journal at

The referees look at the article writing rules, article content, originality and scientificity. An evaluation must be written in the notes to the author and editor. The reason for rejection of rejected articles must be written.

The article that receives two acceptances and one revision and one acceptance is accepted directly. The article that receives two revisions is sent for revision. The article that receives a refusal and a correction is sent to the 3rd referee. The decision of the 3rd referee determines the outcome. The article that receives two rejections is directly rejected.

Accepted and corrected manuscripts are sent to the authors, and their final versions, arranged according to the referee's suggestions, are requested. The final versions of the correction areas are sent back to the referees for viewing, if requested by the referees. If the referees do not see any problem in the article, it is accepted. The final version of the article is requested from the authors within 7 days.

The finalized articles are processed for graphics and layout. PDF versions are sent to the authors for final checking. If there are corrections, they are asked to mark and add notes on the PDF. PDF texts are sent back to the journal. Thus, the process is completed. No corrections can be made after this stage.
