The Role of Journal Editor Board

The crucial role of the journal Editor-in-Chief is to monitor and ensure the fairness, timeliness, thoroughness, and civility of the peer-review editorial process. The main responsibilities of our editors are:

• Selecting manuscripts suitable for publication while rejecting unsuitable manuscripts,

• Ensuring a supply of high-quality manuscripts to the journal by identifying important “hot topics”,

• Increasing the journal’s impact factor and maintaining the publishing schedule,

• Providing strategic input for the journal’s development,

• Organizing the flow of manuscripts by communicating with the authors, referees, and publishers,

• Describing, implementing, and regularly reviewing policies for handling ethical issues and allegations or findings of misconduct by authors and anyone involved in the peer-review process,

• Treating all authors with fairness, courtesy, objectivity, honesty, and transparency,

• Protecting the confidentiality of every author’s work,

• Setting up a reliable panel of expert reviewers.

Editors are also responsible for offering feedback to reviewers when required and ensuring that any feedback to authors is constructive.

Peer Reviewing Process

A manuscript submitted to the Turkish Journal of Water Science and Management must be the original work of the author(s) and must not published elsewhere or under consideration for another publication in its submitted or a substantially similar form in any language. Every contribution excluding the invited papers submitted to the TJWSM will be sent to, at least, two reviewers selected by the editors in compliance with double blind peer review. The primary purpose of the review is to provide the editors with the information necessary to make a decision on publication. The review should also instruct the authors on how to strengthen their paper up to the point where it is acceptable. A negative review should explain to the authors the weaknesses of their manuscript, so that rejected authors are able to understand the basis for the decision and how to improve their manuscript in order to be published anywhere. The editors reserve the right to reject manuscripts and to stipulate revisions. Articles that fail to comply with the publication rules will be retroceded to the authors without being sent to referees. The manuscripts accepted for publication should be corrected by the author taking into account the editors and/or reviewers’ remarks, otherwise author's justification on refusing to correct his manuscript should be presented.

Cancellations/Returns

Manuscripts may be returned to authors in order to increase the authenticity and reliability and to prevent ethical breaches, and even if articles have been accepted or published, they can be withdrawn from publication if necessary. The Editor in-Chief of the journal have the right to return or withdraw articles in the following situations:

• When there is proof of ruling out the findings obtained by the research,

• When the article is undergoing an assessment or publication process by another journal, congress, conference, etc.,

• When the article is not within the scope of the journal,

• When the scientific quality and content of the article does not meet the standards of the journal and a referee review is not necessary,

• When the article was not prepared in compliance with scientific publication ethics,

• When any plagiarism is detected in the article,

• When the authors do not perform the requested corrections within the requested time,

• When the authors make changes that are not approved by the editor after the article was submitted,
