Peer Review Process

KARYA: Journal of Educational Community Service is a blind peer-reviewed journal. This means that both the reviewer is hidden from the author's identity, during the reviewer's review process and the author's identity is hidden from the reviewer, and vice versa, during the review process Submitted papers are evaluated by anonymous referees for contribution, originality, and relevance. Reviewer selection is critical to the publication process, and we base our choice on many factors, including expertise, reputation, specific recommendations, and our own previous experience of a reviewer's characteristics. We check with potential reviewers before sending them manuscripts to review. Reviewers reserve the right to reject the script if the script review didn't match the fields/expertise. Reviewers should bear in mind that all correspondences in this journal contain confidential information, which should be treated as such.

Publication Ethics

Core Practices of Publications

We really try to organize and obey publication ethics and publication malpractice statement by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: authors, editors, reviewers, and publishers. For detailed information about COPE and Core Practices of Publications, please visit Core Practices of Publications.

Author(s) duties

Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of their research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Authors also must ensure that their work is entirely original, and therefore wherever and whenever the work and/or words of others are used, all instances must be appropriately acknowledged. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication. The author(s) should inquire with the original copyright holder (usually the original publisher or authors), whether or not this material can be re-used.

Plagiarism and fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

Editor(s) duties

Editors evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. The editor does not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. Whenever ethical complaints are filed concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, editors must take reasonable action to ensure that proper compliance with ethical standards is restored. Submitted information and ideas must be kept confidential and cannot be used for personal advantage or gain. Editors should pass the final acceptance only after discussion with the other managing and co-editors and reviewers based on the compliance, originality, and quality of the article. It is the duty of editors to correct the articles if demand comes from authors. If needed, other appropriate action should be taken at the time of processing of the article. The editor should address and take sufficient steps regarding ethical complaints about the published data and/or methodologies. Further communications should be made to the corresponding authors.

The editor should evaluate the manuscripts initially without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, citizenship, etc.

Reviewer(s) duties

All manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Any appointed reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript, or is otherwise aware that a prompt review will be impossible, should notify the editor and step down from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments so that authors can use them for improving the paper.
