The NPT is a refereed, scholarly journal published biannually by Homer. The aim of the journal is to provide a medium and an intellectual platform for debates and new scholarly ideas relating to the history, politics, society, economy and culture of Turkey and the Ottoman Empire. In addition to
research directly concerned with Turkey and the Ottoman Empire, comparative perspectives and theoretical contributions relevant to such research are also actively solicited. The variety of material in the past issues ranging from Ottoman history to contemporary politics, from general theoretical concerns to interventions in specific debates - reflects the diversity of the journal's area of interests.
We hope that you will become a regular reader of the journal and also contribute to its success with your work. We welcome articles, reviews,
reports on research and conferences, occasional notes and communications.
