Dear Authors and Referees
TR and other indexes have made some regulations concerning ethical rules since 2020. If the authors require "Ethics Committee Approval" in their research, they must include the relevant documents and upload them to the system along with the article. Otherwise, your article will be returned and not evaluated because it does not comply with the journal's rules.
"Ethics Committee Approval" is required for all types of research using qualitative or quantitative approaches that involve collecting data from participants using surveys, interviews, focus groups, observation, experiment, and interview techniques.
Articles should state whether ethical committee approval and/or statutory/special approval is required. If such approval is required, it should be clearly stated from which institution, on what date, and with what decision or number.
"Ethics Committee Approval" is required for studies involving human subjects and animals (including materials/data) for experimental or other scientific purposes.
If the study involves the use of human or animal subjects, the international declaration of the study, guidelines, etc. must be provided.
"Ethics Committee Approval" is required for human and animal clinical trials.
According to the Personal Data Protection Act, "Ethics Committee Approval" is necessary for retrospective studies.
