Manuscript Submission

Some points to consider during the manuscript submission process are listed below. For detailed information, please see the Journal website’s Author Guidelines, Ethical Principles and Publication Policy, and Peer Review Process sections.

  • The publication languages of the Journal are English and Turkish. At least half of the articles published in each number are aimed to be in the English language (Beginning from 06/2022).
  • Review manuscripts are not accepted. Only research manuscripts are included in the preliminary evaluation or peer-review process (Beginning from 06/2022).
  • While manuscripts derived from doctoral theses are accepted, manuscripts from master’s theses are not taken into the process. (Beginning from 05/2023).
  • Manuscripts submitted to the Journal should be appropriate for the scope and writing rules of the Journal. Manuscripts that do not comply with the scope and/or writing rules of the Journal are rejected without preliminary evaluation.
  • Within the protection of human and animal rights, the Business and Economics Research Journal complies with national and international ethical principles. Ethics committee approval should be obtained and documented in studies requiring ethics approval. In this context, clinical, experimental, and other scientific research on humans should be approved by the ethics board of the relevant institutions.
  • The authors of the manuscript should scan their papers for plagiarism using plagiarism software (iThenticate or Turnitin), and the similarity index must be under 20%. This similarity report should be sent with the anonymous manuscript and title page files.
  • Firstly, all manuscripts are evaluated by the Editor/Editorial Board. In the preliminary evaluation stage, manuscripts are evaluated in terms of originality, contribution to the literature, language usage, international principles of research and publication ethics, plagiarism, etc. At the end of the preliminary evaluation, the manuscript may be rejected, correction may be requested, or the manuscript may be taken directly to the review process. Manuscripts only that pass the preliminary evaluation stage are taken into the referee evaluation process.
  • For submitted manuscripts, there is an article processing charge (APC). The APC is 1,800 TRY for manuscripts from Turkey and $40 (US Dollars) for manuscripts from other countries. The article processing charge is not refundable if the manuscript is rejected after the peer-reviewing process or withdrawn in the process. For authors who are referees in BERJ, a particular discount (25%) is applied to the APC. The APC is requested for manuscripts that pass the preliminary evaluation stage, and the bank account/payment information (wire transfer/EFT) is shared with the author(s) after the preliminary evaluation stage.
