There are more than 3000 scientific journals in Turkey. The number is increasing as the Turkish governmental organization (TUBITAK-ULAKBIM) provides free service (i.e. web hosting, manuscript submission system, etc.) for journals using the DergiPark systems.

EASE Turkish Chapter members have also been translating important documents into Turkish and have made them open access to everybody.
Printing and distribution were supported by Trakya University and the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) and its Turkish Academic Network & Information Center (ULAKBIM). It was supplied to 2000 editors in Turkey and can be downloaded either from the University or ULAKBIM webpages. Foreword by Pippa Smart and Prefaces in English can be read at this link.
The members of the EASE Turkish Chapter are editors or past editors of important scientific journals in Turkey or professionals at governmental bodies. EASE is now better known in Turkey as the result of the chapter’s activities all over the country and its publications. We hope to continue our close collaboration with EASE and to host future joint events.
