The aim of the The Current Status of Energy in Turkey: Problems and Prospects is to provide an intellectual platform for social-scientific studies of energy, a platform in which research in alternative paradigms for economic and social inquiry cou
The editorial board encourages research that draws upon conventional as well as non-conventional wisdom in studying social-scientific questions, and that offers new and innovative perspectives and interpretations on issues that are appropriate for the scope of the book. The research submitted for publication could be theoretical or empirical in nature. The editorial policy maintains, as a central principle of scientific pluralism, a respect for the incommensurable differences among alternative paradigms, and does not impose any interparadigmatic standard on the methods or contents of the articles, but requires that the submitted research meets the internal standards of its own paradigm. Submissions, which must be in both English and Turkish, are refereed anonymously.
1. Papers must be bilingual in English and Turkish.
2. Submissions should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Papers that are submitted for publication should not be
under review at other publication projects.
4. The first page of the manuscript should contain:
• the title
• the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the author(s)
• the address, telephone and fax numbers (as well as the e-mail address) of the corresponding author.
• an abstract of 50-200 words.
• Notes should be numbered consecutively.
• Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively and printed on separate sheets.
• References should be listed at the end of the main text in alphabetical order. They should be cross-referenced in the text by using the author's name and publication date in the style of Sen (1970). If page numbers are to be given, they should be cross-referenced in the style of Sen (1970:20).
• References should be typed in the following style:
