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.

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.

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.
