  • Editorial Principles
     
- Guides and recommendations of international organizations such as International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), Council of Science Editors (CSE), European Association of Science Editors (EASE) ve Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) are taken into consideration in the publication processes of AVES journals.
 
- Manuscripts submitted to AVES journals are evaluated within the scope of independent, unbiased double-blind peer review principles.
 
- The aim of AVES journals is to publish clinical, experimental or basic science studies that are high in quality at the international level.
 
- In order to contribute to the progress and education of experts and assistants, editorial comments, review articles that cover the advancements in medical education and practices, case reports, original images, scientific letters, education articles, letters to editors, manuscripts on publication ethics and diagnostic puzzles are also published by AVES journals. 
 
 
  • Editorial and Peer-Review Processes
     
Step 1

Each manuscript submitted to an AVES journal goes through a pre-evaluation review which is performed by the journal’s publication coordinator. During this process, publication coordinator reviews the following items;
 
- Conformity of the submission to the scope and guidelines of the receiving journal
 
- Author contribution disclosure and author contribution form
 
- Conflict of interest disclosure and ICMJE Form for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest
 
- Ethics Committee approval
 
- Informed patient consent disclosure
 
- Possible financial support disclosure
 
- Plagiarism and duplication scan (iThenticate)
 
- Review of references cited in the manuscript and check of their accuracy using various databases
 
- Originality review of the tables and images included in the manuscript

 
Step 2

- Submissions that pass the first stage are forwarded to the Editor in Chief’s desk. Editor in Chief evaluates the scientific aspects of the submission and forms his/her initial decision. Although limited; manuscripts that are not within the scope of the receiving journal, submissions similar to articles recently published by the receiving journal and submissions that do not present novelty might be rejected by the Editor in Chief with the consent of the Editorial Board while at the Editor in Chief’s desk. In general, no more than 10% of the unsolicited submissions are rejected that way.
 
- Once the Editor in Chief and the Editorial Board decide to evaluate a manuscripts through a peer-review process, at least 3 reviewers are assigned per manuscript. Reviewers are selected among experts who are not actively working in the journal’s management or its editorial process, who have no connections or conflicting of interests with the owner organization of the journal or the submitting author. Before the peer review process is initiated, manuscript files and its content are blinded in order to ensure a blind peer review process.
 
- All original articles and some case reports are also reviewed by a biostatistician.
 
- Once all reviewers submit their reviews, Editor in Chief might request a revision for the manuscript, or accept or reject the manuscript.
 
- Prior to the final decision, each manuscript is scanned through a plagiarism detection software for the second time to eliminate or detect possible acts of plagiarism or duplication that might be performed during the evaluation process.
 
 
Step 3
 
- Accepted manuscripts are uploaded to the accepting journal’s webpage with their title and abstract and a DOI is deposited.
 
- Each accepted manuscript goes through a Turkish or English language editing process.
 
- Publication process of each accepted manuscript is coordinated and finalized by AVES with the authors and the Editorial Board of journal 
 
  • Advertisement Principles
 
- Financial expenses of AVES journals are covered by the owner institutions’ resources.

- Additionally, a limited number of drug and medical equipment advertisements might be published by journals.
 
Aside from exceptional cases, commercial advertisements are not published in journals’ web pages.
 
- Non-medical advertisements are not accepted to be published neither in journals nor in their websites.
 
  • Conflict of Interest

- All submitting authors are requested to declare any potential conflict of interests by filling in the ICMJE Form for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest and their declarations are published at the end of each manuscript. If any undeclared issues are detected, a second explanation is demanded from the authors by the Editorial Board.
 
  • Human and Animal Rights

- For experimental, clinical and drug studies, it is compulsory to acquire and present an ethics committee report that is prepared in accordance with international human and animal rights laws and Declaration of Helsinki.
 
  • Patient Consent
 
- It is compulsory to inform patients about the study, and receive and declare the patient’s consent. Patient consent information is presented at the end of each manuscript.
 
  • ICMJE
 
- AVES has adopted ICMJE Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals guide and declared this in journals’ instructions to authors pages.
(http://www.icmje.org/journals-following-the-icmje-recommendations/#)

- Publication processes of AVES journals are shaped around this guide, and it is ensured that editors, authors and reviewers are act in accordance with this guide.
