Yükseköğretim Dergisi/Journal of Higher Education (Turkey) Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

All manuscripts that are submitted to the Yükseköğretim Dergisi/Journal of Higher Education (Turkey) must be original, unpublished, and not under the review of any other publication. The journal does not publish manuscripts that are previously published as full text in conference proceedings (except in the form of an abstract). Manuscript evaluation process starts with the preliminary evaluation by the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board evaluates whether manuscripts are within the scope of the journal or not, and if they are not within the scope, the Editorial Board either rejects them directly or sends them back to authors to revise their papers to comply with the publication scope and rules. At the next stage of the evaluation, papers that are within the scope of journal undergo double-blind peer review. The Editorial Board is authorized to suggest required corrections and changes upon the comments and suggestions of reviewers or reject the manuscript at any stage of the evaluation. After the acceptance of the paper for publishing, it will be submitted to the publisher where it will be typeset. After page layout process, corresponding author will receive a proof of the manuscript to proofread. Following the author’s approval of the proof, the manuscripts are assigned a DOI number and published online.

Our journal reserves the right to examine the manuscripts, at any stage, for plagiarism by means of a plagiarism software. We check for plagiary and fraudulent data; falsification (fabrication or manipulation of research data, tables, or images) and improper use of humans or animals in research. Manuscripts that do not comply with these standards are not published in the journal. This also applies to any possible malpractice discovered after the publication. Any published manuscripts not in accordance with these standards will be removed from the publication. In accordance with the code of conduct we will report any cases of suspected plagiarism or duplicate publishing. We follow the COPE Ethics Flowcharts for dealing with cases of possible scientific misconduct and breach of publication ethics. For more details on COPE, please click here.

Author Responsibilities

Authors should ensure that submitted work is original. They must certify that the manuscript has not previously been published elsewhere or is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere, in any language. They must follow the applicable copyright laws and conventions. Copyright material (e.g. tables, figures or extensive quotations) must be reproduced only with appropriate permission and acknowledgement. Any work or words of other authors, contributors, or sources must be appropriately credited and referenced.

The author(s) of the original research articles must confirm that they were involved in at least 3 of the 5 stages of the study as "designing the study", "collecting the data", "analyzing the data", "writing the manuscript," and "confirming the accuracy of the data and the analyses". The authors of the submitted manuscript must disclose all issues concerning financial relationship, conflict of interest, and competing interest that may potentially influence the results of the research or scientific judgment. All financial contributions, supports or sponsorship of projects must be clearly explained. Conflict of interest does not prevent the publication of the manuscript in the journal.

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published paper, it is the author's obligation to promptly contact the Editor to make the necessary retractions or corrections.

Reviewer Responsibilities

Reviewers evaluate manuscripts based only on scientific content, without regard to ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religious belief, or political philosophy of the authors. They may not have any conflict of interest or competing interest with respect to the research, the authors, and/or the research funders. Their judgments must be objective.

Reviewers should identify the relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. They must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential, and must report any copyright infringement and plagiarism by the author to the Editor.

A reviewer who feels unqualified to review the topic of a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor and excuse him/herself from the review process.

Editorial Responsibilities

The Editorial Team of the Yükseköğretim Dergisi/Journal of Higher Education (Turkey) consists of the Editor-in-Chief, Editors, and Assistante Editors. All editors ensure the editorial independence. They should only evaluate manuscripts for their scientific content without regard to ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religious belief, political philosophy of the authors, or personal influences from association staff or volunteer leaders. They must provide a fair double-blind peer review of the submitted articles for publication. They should ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept confidential before publishing. Editors are responsible for the contents and overall quality of the publication. They should publish errata pages or make corrections when needed.

Editor-in-Chief should not allow any conflicts of interest or competing interests between the authors, editors and reviewers. The Editorial Team has the full authority to assign a reviewer and is responsible for the final decision for publication of the manuscripts in the Yükseköğretim Dergisi/Journal of Higher Education (Turkey).
