Notes For The Contributers
NOTES FOR THE CONTRIBUTORS Journal of Administrative Sciences Journal of Administrative Sciences (JAS) / Yönetim Bilimleri Dergisi (YBD) is a refereed journal and published twice a year. JAS publishes scholarly articles in English and Turkish languages. The journal is an independent publication in terms of scientific research and the editors decide its publication policy. *** JAS focuses on scholarly articles on economics, politics, history, international relations, business, accounting and public administration in general from all over the world. The journal encourages interdisciplinary studies. Manuscripts submitted to JAS should be original and challenging, and should not be under consideration by another publication at the time of submission. Previously published articles in other languages may be considered by the journal for the first publication English (Turkish) translation. In that case the author should so state at the time of submission, provide relevant written copyright approval by the publication to the JAS. We also welcome book reviews on recent relevant publications. Articles submitted for consideration of publication are subject to peer review. The editorial board and editors takes consideration whether submitted manuscript follows the rules of scientific writing. The appropriate articles are then sent to three international referees known for their academic reputation in their respective areas. For the articles to be published, at least two 'accepted' reports from the referees are required. The Editors and referees use three-step guidelines in assessing submissions: i) Literary quality: Writing style, usage of the language, organisation (paragraphing, syntax, flow etc.) ii) Use of references. Referencing, sources, relationships of the footnotes to the text. iii) Scholarship quality: Depth of research, quality; contribution, originality of the contribution (new and creative thought) and plausibility of the author's argument. Upon the referees' decision, the articles will be published in the journal, or rejected for publication. The review process lasts from five to 15 weeks. Questions regarding the status of submissions should be directed to the co-editors by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The referee reports are kept confidential and stored in the archives for five years. The author could be asked for technical corrections by editors after the final draft of the article. The corrections shoul be made in 30 days by the author. All manuscripts and editorial correspondence and inquiries should be addressed to the JAS Editorial Office.
We prefer electronic submission to email@example.com as a Microsoft word attachment file. Please be sure that you received a confirmation from the Office. Manuscripts should be one-and-half spaced throughout (including all quotations and footnotes) on single sides of A4 paper. Generous margins on both sides of the page should be allowed.

JAS uses Oxford Referencing System which consists of the following elements: i) Citations in the body of the paper, using a superscript (raised) number, generally at the end of a sentence. ii) A list of footnotes at the bottom (foot) of each page, for all citations on that page. These are known as endnotes if they appear at the end of a chapter, section or other division (for longer texts, for multi-author texts and for texts intended to be read as separate parts) iii) The bibliography should be provided at the end of the paper giving the details of each source referred to and possibly other materials consulted in preparing the paper.
