Notes for Authors

Submission of the Manuscripts

All Turkish Journal of Iranian Studies (TJIS) processes are carried out entirely online. Firstly, the manuscripts sent to the TJIS must comply with publication ethics. Authors apply by uploading their manuscripts to the relevant sections after registering into the system.

The article should not contain any information about the author, including their name and surname, in the application process. When the evaluation process of the submitted articles begins, no author's name can be added or removed. Therefore, the names of the authors must be entered entirely in the registration form. All communication in the application process occurs online via e-mail and the website. Articles should be written according to the journal writing rules and should be in accordance with the article template. Papers that do not comply with the writing rules will not be evaluated.

The references should be arranged following the procedures and principles in the 7th edition of the APA citation system. It is recommended that the articles should not exceed (10,000 words) excluding the references.

Scientific Responsibility

All the scientific and legal responsibilities of the articles belong to the authors. The authors listed in the submitted paper must primarily participate in the study and contribute a certain amount. The names of all authors should be listed under the article's title. Anyone who does not meet the criteria for authorship but contributes to the study can be listed in the "Acknowledgements" section.

Plagiarism Policy

Within the framework of the plagiarism policy, TJIS seeks quotations to be compatible with the scientific rules and that any part of the article is not plagiarized from previous studies. Authors should receive the "plagiarism" report of the article and upload it to the system during the application. The study should be checked with one of the similarity programs such as Turnitin or iThenticate, the similarity rate for the whole article should be less than 20%.

Editorial Process

The publication decision for the articles sent to TJIS is made due to the referee evaluation process. First of all, the articles approved by the editor go through the referee evaluation process. In this context, the editor selects two or three academic experts in their fields as referees to evaluate the article. After the article is accepted, it is published online in the journal as soon as possible. However, the publication of the submitted article varies due to the different busyness of the review process in other fields. The editor may reject an article sent to the journal for various reasons (not complying with the spelling rules, being published in another place entirely or partially before, not complying with the publication policy, etc.). In addition, at the beginning or end of the refereeing process, the editor can make suggestions regarding the article's content.


Authors will be asked to approve the Article Submission Agreement and sign the Ethical Statement Form. The copyright of the published article belongs to the journal. Authors are paid royalties after the articles are peer-reviewed and queued for publication.
