1. The result of the committee evaluation (such as acceptance and rejection) shall be notified to the publisher/editor in an official letter. “TR Index Participation Agreement” is signed in 2 (two) copies between the accepted journal editor and the Directorate of ULAKBIM.
  2. Following the signing of the agreements, the journal is included in the TR Index data entry process.
  3. New issues of “accepted“ journals should be uploaded in PDF format. It is the responsibility of the editor and/or publisher to ensure that the issues are sent on time and regularly. Failure to upload the issues and related peer-review reports to ODIS in time will cause the journal to be removed from the index.
  4. The new issues of the accepted journal should also comply with the conditions and criteria. In case of non-compliance with the criteria, the status of the journal in the index is re-evaluated by the relevant Committee.
  5. After the committee evaluation, journals that are not accepted to the TR Index will continue to be monitored for a period of one year.
  6. In the case of monitoring after rejection, the journal is re-evaluated at the end of the period provided that it completes its new issues and uploads peer-review reports and completes the missing points in question.
  7. As a result of the second evaluation of the Committee, if the deficiencies mentioned previously continue, the re-evaluated year and the next year of the journal will remain as rejected. The journal, which has been rejected twice in a row, will not be considered for 2 years.
  8. According to the committee evaluation results, “accepted” or “rejected” journals should upload their new issue and documents requested for evaluation by the committee (sample peer-review reports, etc.) to ODIS on time.
