This information will be added by the editor to the manuscript after the manuscript has been submitted by the editor, as it is already visible by the editor. Therefore, when the manuscripts are entered into the system, it should be checked that any information belonging to the author is not included in the article. This aspect is important to allow the journal referees to review the article more easily.
  • Researcher identification numbers are used in order to prevent some problems arising from the similarities between the names / institutions in the scientific studies of scientists and academicians. Within the scope of the studies carried out with the cooperation between TÜBİTAK-ULAKBİM and YÖK, it was decided to use ORCID information. Authors who submit articles to our journal are required to submit their ORCID ID numbers to the editor together with the article texts. The work of the authors who do not submit the ORCID number will not be published.
