List of References

  • The list of references appears at the end of your work and gives the full details of everything that you have cited in the text in alphabetical order by the author’s surname.
  • All sources must be referred in a consistent manner. Choose from the list of sources below, the examples given, provide a guide to the format and punctuation you should use.

TARGID organizes articles according to APA 7 (2020) rules and requests that studies be prepared according to the latest APA format. Accordingly, examples of in-text and end-of-text bibliography that we use in our journal are given below.

Both the author and the date, separated by a comma, appear in parentheses for a parenthetical citation. When citing multiple works parenthetically, place the citations in alphabetical order, separating them with semicolons. Arrange two or more works by the same authors by year of publication. Place citations with no date first, followed by works with dates in chronological order; in-press citations appear last. Give the authors’ surnames once; for each subsequent work, give only the date.

In-Text Examples

One author (Yalçın, 2021), (Türk, 2020)

Two authors (Coşkun & Başbuğ, 2019), (Uslu & Narlıçay, 2022)

Abbreviations and Units

Generally, units must be abbreviated according to the International System of Units (SI units). Below you find examples of abbreviations of the most commonly used SI units:Meter: m, Kilogram: kg, Second: s, Minute: min, Ampere: A, square meter: m2, cubic meter: m3, Hertz: Hz

Tables, figures & illustrations

  • In presenting data, authors should anticipate the limitations set by the size and layout of the journal. Large and complex tables, figures and maps should be avoided in the main paper, but can be included in a data appendix for use by reviewers.
  • Figures should be saved in a neutral data format such as JPEG, TIFF or EPS. PowerPoint and Word graphics are unsuitable for reproduction. Please do not use any pixel-oriented programmes. Scanned figures (in JPEG and TIFF formats) should have a resolution of 300 dpi (halftone) or 600 to 1200 dpi (line drawings) in relation to the reproduction size.
  • Any tables and figures that are included in the main text of the paper should be numbered separately, in the sequence that they are mentioned in the text.
  • Each table and figure should be presented on a separate page of the manuscript, with a brief and self-explanatory title. All text should be clearly legible, and all graphics and legends should be easily distinguished when printed in black and white.
  • Tables should be arranged so that each data is in one cell.
  • Notes under each table and figure should be used to explain and specify the source of all data shown.

 File Sizes

Manuscripts will be distributed to reviewers via the Web. However, reviewers who use telephone modems may experience unacceptable download delays if the files are too large. A number of simple tricks can be used to avoid unnecessarily large files. Do not scan pages of text. Do not scan printed Figures unless no original digital document exists. If a scanned figure is unavoidable, please use Adobe PhotoShop or a similar program to edit the file and reduce the file size (not necessarily the image size) as much as possible before submission. For example, crop the picture to exclude surrounding "white space." Do not carelessly use colour. Black and white line drawings or gray-scale figures should not be saved as color documents; this will increase file sizes without increasing the information content of the file. Do not use colour unless absolutely needed to convey information.

Manuscript file format

We request to submit article in Microsoft Word format (.DOCX). If you are using another word processor please save final version of the manuscript (using 'Save As' option of the file menu) as a Word document. In this case please double check that the saved file can be opened in Microsoft Word. We cannot accept Acrobat .PDF or any other text files.

Graphs and Tables

  • In Turkish articles, all texts, including the title of Graphs and Tables, must be written in English.
  • Formatting in tables should be zero, each value should be in a cell
  • Graphics must be editable in accordance with the magazine format (they will not be in the form of pictures)
