Aims & Scope
Eurasian Research Journal aims to present the cultural riches as well as the historical and contemporary realities of the Turkic world within a scientific framework. It also aims to inform the public of scientific studies of international quality focusing on the Turkic World.
Eurasian Research Journal publishes articles that approach the current and historical problems of the Turkic world from a scientific perspective and propose solutions to these issues.
Submissions to Eurasian Research Journal should be original articles producing new and worthwhile ideas and perspectives or evaluating previous studies in the field. Eurasian Research Journal also publishes essays introducing authors and works and announcing new and recent activities related to the Turkic world.
An article to be published in 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 considered 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.
