Similarity (Plaglarism)

During the first submission, the author (s) of the article should scan for similarity and upload the report showing the similarity rate together with the article. Plagiarism scanning with Turnitin or Ithenticate program is done once by the editor/field editor before the appropriateness of an article submitted to our journal is examined in terms of purpose and scope. If the similarity rate of the search results is above 20%, the article will not be evaluated. In this case, the authors are asked to correct (decrease the similarity rate) and upload again. Bibliographic materials (bibliography, quotations, etc.) are not included in the search.
