Ethical Principles and Publication Policy

The Eurasia Proceedings of Educational & Social Sciences (EPESS) has adopted a free and open access publication policy. EPESS uses the dergipark database. Dergipark is a non-commercial database. 

The Eurasia Proceedings of Educational & Social Sciences (EPESS) takes reasonable steps to identify and prevent publication of articles where research misconduct occurs. If ISRES Publishing, the publisher of EPESS, or its editors are notified of any allegations of research misconduct, the publisher or editor will carefully review the allegations.If unethical practices are detected, the editors and publishers of the EPESS journal have the right to delete the relevant article. The responsibility of the legal processes to be initiated against such violations belongs to the authors.

All articles sent to EPESS journal will be evaluated after the Turnitin Plagiarism Detection Program. The similarity rate for Turnitin is 20%. However, in quantitative studies with high statistical density, up to 30% similarity rates can be accepted. Standard templates used in statistics can hold high rates in similarity reports. Whether there is plagiarism in a paper is determined by the editor according to the plagiarism report. The EPESS’s Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement is based, in large part, on the guidelines and standards developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
