AUTHOR: All authors must make significant contributions to the research. Subjects such as plagiarism, forgery, distortion, unfair authorship are the responsibility of the authors. If detected, the article will be rejected. An article in progress cannot be sent to another journal or published.
REFEREE: The articles submitted for publication are evaluated by blind referees. The peer review process involves seeking advice on individual manuscripts from reviewers' experts in the field.

The referee evaluation results are reviewed by the editor and the author is informed about the decision about the article. The names of the referees who evaluated the articles are not notified to the authors. Reviewers also cannot see the names of the authors. It is a general principle that the articles that are not considered sufficient should be developed in line with the recommendations of the referees.
EDITOR: Journal Editors have adopted the principle of complying with all the COPE Code of Conduct standards. Editors should not have a conflict of interest regarding the articles they accept or reject. Only articles that will contribute to the field should be accepted.
