Types of Articles Requested
KPY Yearbook consists of a Dossier, a Key Note Paper, Other Articles, Reviews and KPY News Compilation. The KPY Yearbook 2014 is seeking papers for only Other Articles and Reviews sections.
Other Articles: Having no restriction of specific subject, these are articles which help to define the cultural policies and management areas, critically evaluate theories, and advocate new developments in the subject field in global or local scope. These are welcome from academic, management, artistic or relevant disciplines.
Reviews: Global in its scope, Reviews section features short review pieces on important events (such as shows, exhibitions, projects, training programs, awards, public events, conferences, legislations on cultural management and policy) and publications in the field of cultural policy and management from over the previous year. Reviews are welcome from academic, management, artistic or relevant disciplines.
Criteria for Publication
The articles must report original research in the subject field (the main results and conclusions must not have been published elsewhere).
Language, Length and Style
KPY Yearbook 2014 calls for the submission of full texts in English and Turkish. Abstracts and keywords are not needed.
Other Articles should be between 5000-5500 words (including main text, titles, section headings, footnotes, bibliography and short biography).
Reviews should be between 2000-2500 words (including main text, titles, section headings, footnotes, bibliography and short biography).
Authors should try to restrict themselves to no more than six display items (tables and figures).
The editorial coordinator will acknowledge receipt of the work to the author(s).
The editorial coordinator will do the appropriate topical track.
The editorial board of the Yearbook will identify reviewers for paper evaluation. A double blind review process is used for review. The authors’ identities will not be known to the reviewers, and the reviewers will withhold their identity from the paper authors.
Reviewers are asked to provide a rigorous review of paper content and format, and provide written feedback on the paper content to the contact person to be forwarded to the author via the contact persons.
Once the required revisions (if any) are completed, the paper will be prepared for publication.
II. ‘Reviews’ Section:
The editor of the section will prepare a plan and share it with the editorial board. This plan will have a list of material to be reviewed (such as books, projects, training programs, awards, public events, conferences on cultural management and policy) and reviewers. There is also space for those who submit reviews independently without invitation. To allow for independent reviews an announcement must be made. The reviewers will be notified that the final product will still be selected by the editorial board.
Once the reviews come in the editor of the section will make the first selection and present the selected reviews to the editorial board for the final decision.
Publication date and process
The issue will be published in December, 2014.
As KPY Yearbook editorial board, we put strong emphasis on the highest production standards possible. We attach high importance to our quality service levels in editing, translating, typesetting, copy-editing and printing. We also seek to uphold excellent author relations throughout the publication process.
