  Manuscript Evaluation
All manuscripts that are submitted to the Yükseköğretim Dergisi/Journal of Higher Education (Turkey) must be original, unpublished, and not under the review of any other publication.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 evaluation of Editorial Board. The Editorial Board evaluates whether manuscripts are within the scope of the journal or not, and when they are not within the scope, the Editorial Board either rejects them directly or sends back to authors to make the papers comply with 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 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. The manuscripts are published online following the author’s approval of the proof.
