The editor of ARTS is responsible for the smooth publishing of every published text, or for rejecting and returning it to the author, and can decide whether to send a text to the referee or to refuse it without a referee. The editor can consult with the editorial board and members of the advisory board in decisions about the publishing process.
Editors and referees take into account the texts sent to the journal for publication according to academic values and criteria and accept or reject them. In this process, each text is handled impartially, and the texts are evaluated by academic criteria regardless of their authors' race, religion, language, ethnicity, gender, political or another opinion, property, seniority, title, institutional relations or any other distinction. The author, referee, editor is responsible to each other in situations that may involve a conflict of interest. In the articles sent to the journal, one of the components (writer, referee or editor) involved in the publishing process, the publishing process (article submission, evaluation, editorial).the decision; This conflict of interest must be specified if the communication between the author, the referee and the editors is in a competition of interest that could adversely affect.
The journal does not give any guarantee and accepts no responsibility for the features and descriptions of commercial products in the article published in the journal for the purpose of advertising. If there is a direct or indirect commercial link or financial support institution for the study, the authors must declare this link and report that there is no trade relationship between them.
The editorial board and advisory board members do not know about the author's identity, except for the editor and assistant editors. These people do not inform third parties about the articles. However, when deemed necessary, information may be provided to the editorial board members by the editor.
The journal is protected in terms of intellectual property rights. The readers of the journal can share the journal material provided that it gives reference; can copy, redistribute in any medium and format. However, the materials of ARTS cannot be used for commercial purposes or be subject to legal or technological measures limiting the right of other rights holders to the right to save under the license permitted by the license.
If the article has been previously published in quotations, articles, tables, pictures, etc. If it is available, the author of the article must obtain written permission from the publisher and the authors of the publication. The author(s) is responsible for the necessary permissions.
There is the authors' responsibility to comply with the scientific and ethical rules of the articles.
ARTS has adopted the policy of providing open access with its publication. Accordingly, it does not pursue any pricing policy for article submission, evaluation, publishing and access processes, and provides all these services free of charge.
REFEREE EVALUATION PROCESS
ARTS uses the “two-sided blind review” method in which the writer and referee identities are hidden (the author and the referee do not see and know each other's name) during the evaluation process of all the articles that are taken into the review.
The editor clearly states that the articles sent to the reviewers for review are the property of the authors and that this is a privileged communication. Referees and editorial board members cannot discuss articles publicly. Referees may not make copies of the articles for personal use and cannot give them to someone else without the permission of the editor. The reviews of the referees cannot be printed and explained without the permission of the author and editor. Care must be taken to keep the identity of the referees confidential. In some cases, with the decision of the editor, the comments of the relevant referees can be sent to other referees who have commented on the same article and the referees can be enlightened in this process.
Each article submitted is firstly evaluated by the editor(s). At this stage, the works that do not fall within the scope and scope of the journal, which is not considered sufficient in terms of language and expression rules in Turkish, English, German and French, contain scientifically critical information errors, have no original value and do not meet the publication policies of the journal are rejected by the editor. Rejected articles (with minor changes or just by changing the name) can not be sent to ARTS again. The editor may make suggestions to the author and ask for correction before sending an article to the referee. The studies deemed appropriate are sent to two referees who are experts in their fields for evaluation. Referees make their evaluations on the form sent to them via DergiPark. Articles that receive a negative evaluation from one of the two referees are sent to a third referee. The article that receives positive approval from 2 of the 3 referees is published. In the case of negative, the article is deemed rejected and removed from the publishing process. The referees must evaluate the articles sent to them within 15 days. Referees can decide the suitability of a study by examining its corrections or may request corrections more than once if necessary. While the articles are sent to the referees, their expertise and interests are taken into consideration, therefore the title of the author of the article and the hierarchy created by this title is not important in terms of journal publication policy.
ARTS is aware of its responsibility in accordance with international ethical rules for ensuring that all articles submitted to the journal are completed independently and impartially. If there are any conflicts of interest between the author or the referees regarding the application or evaluation of an article, this should be reported to the editor.
Plagiarism control is done through the software for the articles that are sent to the journal. The matching and citation correct matches are extracted by examining the in-depth matches of each study. The remaining matches are examined and errors are determined and reported for the editorial board. The editorial board makes the final decision about the study in light of the plagiarism audit report of each study. The errors in the report may be requested to be corrected by the authors or the work can be returned to the authors.
