Hello! As Kairos Magazine, we attach importance to our writing andevaluation process, so we share with you some important points in thisarticle that you can benefit from without getting confused. We kindlyask you to read the articles carefully and contact us if you have anyquestions. We are looking forward to your articles!
Our journal is a philosophy journal. While many subheading's can be opened under philosophy (ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of religion, feminist philosophy, environmental ethics, etc.), our journal does not have a single subheading and accepts articles from all areas of philosophy. These writings can be of many types such as academic, essay, story, poetry, translation. In addition, our journal accepts not only academic articles, but also a wide variety of works such as photographs, paintings, series/film/book/painting/song analysis or criticism, and science-based articles that are based on philosophy or suggestive thought.
We aim to publish our magazine next term, so the deadline for submitting articles will be 24 August 2023.
Anyone from all over Turkey can participate in the magazine and its website, regardless of department. While we give priority to students' writings for the magazine, we also evaluate the works of everyone in the academy, and when we come across a successful work, we keep the requirement to be in the academy flexible. We do not have school, department, age, or any other criteria for our website. We also contact graduates in different fields of art such as painting and music, but we will give priority to the writings and works of those who are currently continuing their studies.
Every month, we accept articles to be published in the following month for our website, without any subject restrictions. For example, an author who wants his article to be published in October can send us his article or articles in the last week of September (or earlier if the article is ready).
Articles sent to the journal will be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. When sending an e-mail, you must indicate in which you would like your article to be published by writing 'For the Journal' or 'For the Website' in the title. Although there is no name and surname or any information about you in the Word file you send, you must specify your name-surname, department, and phone number in the e-mail you write. The name of the Word file you send should be the title of your article. If there are photographs that you think will contribute to the article and should be published with your article, you should include them in a separate Word file.
Articles can be written in Turkish or English.
The articles and works sent to the journal must not have been published elsewhere before.
Articles must be at least 1500 words. This is the minimum limit, there may be a 10% variation. Academic articles can exceed this limit and reach 2500 words. Word limit does not include references. Word limits are not applied the same way in writings such as short stories, poems, and translations. Short poems and stories that are considered complete in themselves, even if they do not reach 1500 words, can be sent. Translators can start the process by sending an e-mail to the article they intend to translate and depending on the feedback they receive. This communication is important for the suitability of the translation for the journal. Additionally, the word limit will be used a little more broadly for the website. Academic articles for the website may exceed the 3000 word limit.
The articles are expected to be written in accordance with literary rules. Too many grammatical errors, lack of page organization, etc. will make you feel like you don't care about your writing. (Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1.5 line spacing, paragraph heads one finger forward, etc.)
Your article is expected to be original, that is, your own work. This does not mean that you cannot make references from other sources or write an article that will explain a topic better using these sources. However, the works of people who do not provide appropriate references for the sources they use, both in-text and at the end, will not be accepted.
Academic articles sent to the journal are evaluated by an academic committee consisting of philosophy academics working at different universities. The list of academics in the academic committee is available on our website. Non-academic works are evaluated by the journal committee. In the evaluation of translations, two pieces of feedback are provided, from both philosophy academics and modern languages academics. Our authors, who receive positive feedback on their articles from the academic committee, accept the responsibility of editing the areas that the academic committee considers to need improvement within the specified time period and in accordance with criticism.
Our writers and artists who send articles or works to the magazine transfer the right to share the articles and works they send to the magazine. The journal has the right to share these articles and works both in the printed magazine and on its website, and withdrawing the sent articles and works from the magazine is not accepted.
