Duties and Responsibilities of Authors
Authorship and Contribution
Authorship should be limited to those who made significant contributions to the concept, design, execution, or interpretation of the work. All significant contributors should be listed as co-authors. If there are minor contributions to the work, such as language editing, they should be mentioned in the acknowledgments section. The corresponding author must ensure that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the manuscript and agreed to submit it for publication. Authors are expected to carefully review the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and to provide the exact author list at the time of original submission. The editor will only consider additions, deletions or rearrangements of authors after the manuscript has been submitted in exceptional cases. All authors must agree to any such additions, deletions or rearrangements. Authors take joint responsibility for the work.
Author Change Requests
Addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the author list can only be made before the article is accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor.
If such a change is requested, the Editor requests from the corresponding author (a) the reason for the change in the author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail) from all authors stating that they agree to the inclusion. Only in exceptional cases will the editor consider additions, deletions or rearrangements of authors after the manuscript has been accepted.
Article Writing
Those who write original research articles should address the topic in an original way and with an objective discussion. The paper should contain sufficient detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly false statements constitute unethical conduct and are unacceptable.
The author must provide assurance that the article is original, has not been published elsewhere before, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere in another language.
Original Source Use and Attribution
Authors should ensure that they write completely original works and that if they use the work or words of others, this is properly cited. Information obtained privately, such as in conversations, correspondence or discussions with third parties, should not be used without the express written permission of the source.
Data Access and Preservation
Authors may be asked to provide research data supporting their article for editorial review and/or to comply with the journal's open data requirements. Authors should be prepared to provide public access to such data, if possible, and to retain such data for a reasonable period of time after publication. Our journal recommends uploading research data to TUBITAK's Aperta Portal.
Multiple and Simultaneous Broadcast
An author should not publish an article containing the same research in more than one journal. Submitting the same article to more than one journal at the same time is unethical behavior. An author should not submit a previously published article for consideration in another journal, unless it has been published in abstract form.
Publication of Studies Based on Surveys and Interviews
For research conducted in all branches of science that require ethics committee permission (ethics committee approval must be obtained, this approval must be stated and documented in the article. For research that requires ethics committee permission, information about the permission (committee name, date and issue number) can be found in the method section, as well as in the first page of the article. In one of the last pages of the article, information about the signed informed consent/consent form should be included in case reports.
Conflict of Interest
Any financial or other interest that may cause conflict in one's work, significantly impair objectivity, or provide an unfair advantage in favor of any person or organization. All sources of financial support received during the conduct of the research and preparation of the article and the role of the sponsors in the study should be disclosed. If there is no funding source, this should also be stated. Examples of potential conflicts of interest that should be disclosed include consultancies, salaries, grants. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest possible stage.
Error Notification
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his published work, he must immediately notify the journal. It is also the author's obligation to cooperate in retracting or correcting the article if deemed necessary by the editor. If the editor or publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains an error, it is the author's obligation to cooperate with the editor, including notifying the editor.

Image Integrity
