How should the editors of journals that are deemed unsuitable to be indexed after being evaluated by the Committee take action?
Following the notification of the committee evaluation results to the editor, the deficiencies mentioned in the said notification should be fixed by the journal editor. If it is seen that the deficiencies have been fixed in the Preliminary Evaluations to be made by the specialist in charge in the TR Dizin Group, the journal is re-evaluated by the Committee at the end of the following year. A journal that is rejected twice in a row will not be considered for 2 years.
