Author Guidelines

General Information:

It is essential that authors prepare their papers according to established specifications. Failure to follow them may result in the submitted paper being delayed. Therefore, contributors are strongly encouraged to read these instructions carefully before preparing a manuscript for submission, and to check the manuscript for compliance with these notes before submitting it for publication. To make the writing process easier a manuscript template is prepared. Contributors are encouraged to use the format provided in the manuscript template.

All manuscripts should be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (for more details, please see: http://www.apastyle.org). Documents that are not written in APA style will be returned back to the sender for reformatting.

As this journal has adopted a double blind reviewing policy, please remove all identifying features from the paper itself by ensuring that no author's name appears in the main text, in-text citations or in the reference list.

IEJEE-Green is against any type of plagiarism. Authors have to follow ethical codes of scientific research. For this reason IEJEE-Green, supports the use of plagiarism detection programs such as TURNITIN or IDENTICATE. Authors should submit the plagiarism report of their manuscript as supporting materials during the submission. Any manuscript without plagiarism report will not be moved to the peer-review process. 

All manuscripts should pass from proofreading. We cannot provide that service at IEJEE-Green. Authors are suggested to get professional proofreading service before submitting their manuscripts. 

Electronic Format Requirements for Accepted Articles:

IEJEE-Green accepts most word-processing formats, but ‘MS-Word', ‘WordPerfect' or ‘OpenOffice Writer' is preferred. Always keep a backup copy of the electronic file for reference and safety.

Preparation of Text:

The text should be in single-column format and should be single-spaced throughout with right and left margins of at least 3 cm each. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the "spell-check" and "grammar-check" functions of your word-processor.

Title page:

Provide the following data on the title page (in the given order).

Title. Insert a concise and informative title. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author names and affiliations. Indicate the names of the authors clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses below the names.

Corresponding author. Clearly indicate with a footnote that who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Provide the full postal address of corresponding author, including the country name, the phone number (with country and area code) (with country and area code) and the e-mail address.

Abstract. A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length 150 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided. Manuscripts submitted as book reviews do not require abstracts. Abstract should be prepared both in English and in Turkish. Authors are responsible to prepare Turkish abstract of their manuscript. If you need help, please contact with the editor in chief through e-mail. (iejeegreen@gmail.com) 

Arrangement of the article

Divide your article into clearly defined sections. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

Introduction: State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Method: Research design and method should be clearly defined.

Results: Results should be clear and concise.

Discussion: This section should explore the significance of the results of the work. A combined "Results and Discussion" section is often appropriate.

Conclusions: The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a "Conclusions" section, which may stand alone or be a subsection of a Discussion.

Acknowledgements: Place acknowledgements, including information on grants received, before the references, in a separate section.

References: Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Listed references here should follow the referencing style used by the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2001, 5th edition; for more details, please see: http://www.apastyle.org).

Author(s) bio statement(s): Provide short bio statement(s) of author(s).

Appendices: If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc.

Specific remarks

Tables and figures: Tables and figures must be embedded in the text, not appended to the end of the document. High-resolution graphics and image files must always be provided separate from the main text file.

Figures need to be clear and efficiently constructed in order to keep file sizes from exceeding what the system can handle. Number the tables and figures consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns.

Footnotes: Footnotes should be used sparingly. Number them consecutively throughout the article, using superscript Arabic numbers. Many word-processors build footnotes into the text and this feature may be used.

References
Citations in the text: Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association.

Reference list: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication.
