—Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement—
Editorial decisions will not be affected by the origins of the manuscript, including the nationality, ethnicity, political beliefs, race, or religion of the authors. Decisions to edit and publish will not be determined by the policies of governments or other agencies outside of the journal itself.
The Review obeys laws on confidentiality in Turkey. It is for the Review to protect the confidentiality of individual information obtained in the course of research or professional interactions. It is therefore almost always necessary to obtain written informed consent for publication from people who might recognise themselves or be identified by others.
Originality and Plagiarism
Manuscripts submitted to the Review should be the author(s)’s own work.
The unreferenced use of another’s published or unpublished work or ideas (i.e. plagiarism) is prohibited. If plagiarism is discovered the manuscript will be rejected; the author(s)’ institution or employers may also be informed.
Dealing with Possible Misconduct

Editors will not simply reject papers that raise concerns about possible misconduct; however, they will pursue alleged cases, following the COPE flowcharts on “what to do if you suspect plagiarism”.
