It is necessary that papers submitted to the volume have not been previously published, nor are they under consideration and evaluation for publication in other journals.

For the sake of diversity, an author cannot publish her/his articles in consecutive issues (this principle is valid after the second issue of IDEAS). To preserve the quality of scholarly publishing, the Editorial Board of IDEAS has decided to accept submissions from authors who either have their PhD degrees or are at least enrolled in a PhD programme currently. 

Submitting their papers to be published in the journal, the authors agree to give the copyright of the papers to IDEAS. The copyright of the papers published belongs to the journal and cannot be transferred without showing a reference. Scholarly, contextual, lingual, and legal responsibilities of the paper published in the journal belong to the author(s) of the paper in question.

The papers should be single-spaced written with a 2,5 cm margin on all sides of an Executive page layout. 10-font size, Cambria font should be used, and 1,25 space should be left between the lines. Please use the IDEAS Template for your submissions. The whole paper, together with the abstract and bibliography, should be between 4000-6000 words for research articles and interviews and 1000-1500 words for reviews. The papers should be written in Word for Windows software program. They should be submitted anonymously through the DERGIPARK system.

The title, name, and surname of the author(s) should be written in the middle below the title. The institution, address, and e-mail address of the author(s) should be at the bottom of the first page.

The papers should be written in accordance with the above guidelines and titles and subtitles should be written as shown in the template. 

The writings in tables and figures should be single-spaced and within the word limit. The title of the table should be numbered and given just above the top of the table in such a way as to give the content of the table. If the title of the table requires a second line, it should be aligned with the table number. If the table has been transferred from another paper, the reference should be given below the table.



The journal uses MLA, 9th edition.
