Studies submitted to the IMIENS should be scanned with programs such as "iThenticate" or "Turnitin", including the references section. Articles with a similarity rate of more than 20% are rejected. In such cases, the author/s are asked to revise and upload the article. Only articles with a similarity rate of 20% or below are taken to the double-blind review evaluation process. Similarity report to be taken from the relevant programs should be uploaded to the journal system in PDF format along with the article (as an additional file).

Ethics Committee Report & Declaration

For the carried out studies, the permit or ethical declaration form obtained from the relevant institutions and organizations regarding the data, information and documents within the frame of academic and ethical rules must be uploaded to the system (as an additional file).
