Peer Review

This journal operates a double-blind peer review process. All manuscripts submitted to Turkish Journal of Tourism Research are evaluated using the following steps.

Double-Blind Review

Turkish Journal of Tourism Research uses double-blind review, which means the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa.

Initial Evaluation Process

Each paper is initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper.

Peer Review Process

Reviewer selection is critical to the publication process. Therefore, reviewers are matched to the paper according to their expertise. Reviewers should bear in mind that all manuscripts contain confidential information, which should be treated as such.

Reviewer Reports

All submissions are evaluated based on several factors, including originality, adequacy of methodology, analysis and interpretation, ethical issues, contribution to the literature, and quality of communication.

Peer Review Timeline

Typically, the manuscript will be reviewed within 30 days. If necessary, revised manuscripts as well as the response to reviewers’ files should be returned to the initial reviewers, usually within 1 month. Reviewers may request more than one revision of a manuscript, and alternative reviewers may also be invited to review the manuscript at any time.

Copy Editing Process

If it is accepted for publication, the manuscript is converted into the journal’s specific layout and the corresponding author is asked to check the proofs of the article. The corresponding author is primarily responsible for having ensured that the paper conforms to the journal guidelines.

Assigning DOI

Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a unique and a persistent identifier used in scholarly publishing to identify and link to a piece of work. A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is assigned to each paper published in Turkish Journal of Tourism Research.

Plagiarism Policy

There are basically two types of plagiarism in research:

  1. Taking someone else’s work or ideas and presenting them as one’s own original work.
  2. Incorporating one’s previously published own passages or paragraphs without full acknowledgement (i.e., self-plagiarism) or resubmitting one’s previously published own work (i.e., duplicate publication).

Before submitting manuscripts to Turkish Journal of Tourism Research, all authors are required to check their manuscripts for plagiarism (using “iThenticate” or “Turnitin”) and send their similarity reports to the Journal.
