Aims & Scope
Eurasian Research Journal focuses on the history and current political, social and economic affairs of the countries of the Eurasian space. The journal also explores the economic, political and social transformation of the countries of Central Asia and the Turkic world.
Eurasian Research Journal publishes original research articles and book reviews.
An article to be published in the Eurasian Research Journal should not have been previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere. Papers presented at a conference or symposium may be accepted for publication if this is clearly indicated.
Eurasian Research Journal is published quarterly: Winter/January, Spring/April, Summer/July and Autumn/October. At the end of each year, an annual index is prepared and published in the Winter issue. Each issue is forwarded to subscribers, libraries and international indexing institutions within one month after its publication.
Review of Articles
Articles submitted to Eurasıan Research Journal are first reviewed by the Editorial Board in terms of the journal's editorial principles. Those found unsuitable are returned to their authors for revision. Academic objectivity and scientific quality are considered of paramount importance. Submissions found suitable are referred to two referees working in relevant fields. The names of the referees are kept confidential and referee reports are archived for five years. If one of the referee reports is positive and the other negative, the article may be forwarded to a third referee for further assessment or alternatively, the Editorial Board may make a final decision based on the nature of the two reports. The authors are responsible for revising their articles in line with the criticism and suggestions made by the referees and the Editorial Board. If they disagree with any issues, they may make an objection by providing clearly-stated reasons. Submissions which are not accepted for publication are not returned to their authors.
The royalty rights of the articles accepted for publication are transferred to Ahmet Yesevi University Board of Trustees. Authors have full responsibility for the views expressed in their articles and for their stylistic preferences. Quotations from other articles and duplication of photographs are permitted as long as they are fully referenced and cited.
