JMR stands equidistant from all methodological and theoretical perspectives in the field of Management and Organization. Originality and the production of new knowledge is the fundamental principle of JMR. The publication language of JMR is Turkish.
The publication decisions regarding the papers proposed to the JMR will be based on the evaluations of the referees in a process in which the identity of the author and the referee is kept confidential.
Authors, whose paper is accepted for publication will receive a free copy of current issue.
Research notes and book reviews are also included in JMR
The paper submitted to JMR must not be published or recommended for any publication in electronic or paper form. The submitted paper should be sent to the journal editor by e-mail in two files, a “Word” file written in Microsoft Word format and a pdf version of this file, except the cover page. The typeface should be be Times New Roman (12 pt) and double spaced. For page layout margins should be 3 cm for all corners. Text should be aligned (justify) from both left and right margins. Footnotes, references, appendixes, charts and drawings should be placed at the end of the main text in separate pages and they should be given in the mentioned sequential order. Manuscripts should be prepared in compliance with the above-mentioned guidelines and should not exceed 40 pages.
Cover Page and Abstract: The cover page, which is the first page of the manuscript, should contain the title of the paper, the author's name or names (in capital letters), the address or addresses (only the initials of the word) and a thank you note, if any. The name of the author should only be on the cover page. On the second page, the title of the study should be rewritten and two abstracts, both Turkish and English, not exceeding 100 words, should be given. The main text of the study should start from the third page and all pages (including references, appendix, tables and charts sections) should be placed in the lower right corner.
Titles: The main titles should be used for the main sections of the study. In most studies main titles should not exceed the number of three or four. Main titles should be given in the middle of line, capitalized and bold. The beginning section of the manuscript should not contain the “Introduction” heading. Second level titles should be placed at the end of the line and written in bold; only first letters of the title should be uppercase. The third level titles must have paragraph indents, only the first letter of the first word should be capitalized and the whole title should be bold. After the third level title, author should put the colon (:) and the text should continue from the same line. All headings should not contain symbols like numbers, underline or italicization.
Tables and Charts: Tables and charts should be used to support and enhance, not to repeat what is said in the text. Charts should be given after the appendix at the end of the text in batches, with one page allocated to each. If there is no appendix, tables and charts may be presented after references. Each chart should be specified in the middle of the line with the uppercase CHART and the following number (eg CHART 3). The title of the chart should be written below the chart number and the middle of the line, with the initials capitalized only. Title of the chart should not be italic, underlined or bold.

These rules about charts, also apply for drawings and tables
Citations: In our Chicago style followed journal, citations should be given in brackets in the form of author's name and year of publication. For instance;

In text citations should include proper punctuations and alphabetical order. Direct quotations should include the specific page number(s) after the year of publication and the sign (:) For Instance;
Abrahamson interprets the management fashion “as a product of formation of management fashion process” (1996: 256).
If the name of the author does not appear in the sentence, it should be indicated in parentheses with the year and page number. Direct quotations with more than three lines should be given from the right and left and separated from the main text. If citing source has more than two authors, writer should provide surname of the first author with “et al.” For Instance, (Lebeck et al, 1984).
All in text citations should be collected at the end of the article under the title of REFERENCES. Resources in the reference, should be in alphabetical order considering the surname of the author (or compiler) and numbers of the authors. If the source belongs to an institution (eg. Central Bank) or a periodical (eg. Business Week) the first letter of the institution or periodical should be considered. If more than one publication of an author or a group of authors is cited, these sources are given in order based on the date of publication (early publication comes first). If these sources are published in the same year, letters such as a, b, and c should be placed next to the publication year in a sequential order. Author names should be repeated for each source (no lines or spaces).
