Publication Policy & Ethical Principles

Publication Policies

No fees charged for the submitted manuscripts during the whole publication procedure. 

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research free available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Manuscripts submitted for consideration in the journal should explore and discuss developments and problems in the above disciplines within the scope of the journal, should objectively present scientific literature, should develop analytical and applicable suggestions for developments and problems based on scientific methods, and should have a direct and original contribution to their respective fields. Authors of manuscripts submitted to the journal must have an academic title, or must be a PhD/ MA student. Articles which are outside of the aims and scope of the journal will not be published.

All of the manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Modernism and Postmodernism Studies are evaluated by a double blind review process, during which the identity of writers and reviewers are not revealed.

The manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Modernism and Postmodernism Studies are initially evaluated by the Editor and the Advisory Board. Manuscripts that do not comply with the aims and scope of the journal, that are not written in accordance with the Turkish and English grammatical structures, that are not original, or that are outside of the publishing policies are declined. In the case of a declined manuscript during the pre-evaluation process, the author is informed by the Editor within a fortnight at the latest following the submission date. For the manuscripts that are found acceptable the review process begins.

The reviewers are given 21 days to send their reports. Authors must respond to the reviewer’s suggestions and revise their works within 10 days at the latest. Reviewers may suggest not more than two rounds of revision for the same manuscript. Reviewers are required to evaluate the revised work (submitted after at most two rounds of revision) and arrive at a decision on the manuscript (i.e. accept or reject). The reviewer reports are evaluated by the member of the Editorial Board in charge within a fortnight at the latest. Based on the reviewers’ reports, the member of the Editorial Board forwards the decision on the manuscript to the Editor. In the event of a manuscript being accepted for publication by the reviewers and the Editorial Board, the Editor makes the final decision on the manuscript

In accordance with the publishing policies of the Journal of Modernism and Postmodernism Studies, authors who would like to withdraw their submission during the process of evaluation need to inform the Editor of their withdrawal request by email. The Editor will examine the withdrawal request, and reply to the author within a week at the latest following the receipt of the request. Authors transfer the copyright of their works to the Journal of Modernism and Postmodernism Studies during the submission process, therefore authors are not permitted to send their works elsewhere for a possible publication before their withdrawal request is accepted.
