Author Guidelines


  1. Articles submitted should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time.
  2. Articles and Book Reviews for the journal should be submitted via email to the following address: oztufekci [@] cesran.org.
  3. Author’s name, title and full address with a brief biographical note should be typed on a separate sheet. The manuscript should begin with an indented and italicised summary up to 150 words, which should describe the main arguments and conclusions, and 5-7 keywords, indicating to main themes of the manuscript.
  4. Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts by electronic means as Word format attachments in Times New Roman and 1,5 space. 12 font should be used within text while 10 font should be preferred for footnotes.
  5. In order to meet the criterion of anonymity we would strongly advise authors not to refer to themselves by name in the text of their submission with the proofs.
  6. Articles should not exceed 15000 words (including footnotes and References), 4000 for Review Articles and 1500 for Book reviews. The minimum length for Articles is 4000 words (including footnotes and References). A word count must be provided in all cases. The Editors regret that articles and reviews over the stipulated word lengths cannot be considered.
  7. Quotations should be placed within double quotation marks (“……”). Quotations larger than four lines should be indented at left margin and single-spaced. Use footnotes (not endnotes). Dates should be in the form 3 November 1996; 1995-1998; and 1990s.
  8. Foreign language text should always be italicized, even when lengthy. American spelling is accepted but spelling practice should be consistent throughout the article.
  9. The ‘Footnote Referencing’ system should be used for bibliographical references in the text and notes. Authors are responsible for making sure that their article conforms to the journal style.
  10. A bibliography should be included at the end of the article starting on a new page and titled References.
  11. Articles should have at most binary subtitles. First subtitle must be written in bold, second subtitle in bold and italics. Subtitles should not include any letters or numbers.
  12. Any acknowledgements should appear at the foot of the first page of the article.
  13. Tables and figures should not be embedded in the text, but should be included as separate sheets or files. A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend and any footnotes suitably identified below. All units must be included. Figures should be completely labeled, taking into account necessary size reduction. Captions should be typed, double-spaced, on a separate sheet.
  14. If a submitted article is selected for publication, its copyright will be transferred to Centre for Strategic Research and Analysis (CESRAN). Published papers can be cited by giving the necessary bibliographical information. For re-publication of any article in full-text permission must be sought from the editors.
  15. Authors will be required to sign a Copyright Assignment Form (please click here to download) and to send it to Editor-in-Chief ( oztufekci [@] cesran.org) for all papers accepted for publication.
  16. All submissions are subject to a double blind peer review.
  17. Authors bear responsibility for their contributions. Statements of fact or opinion appearing in The Journal of Global Analysis are solely those of the authors and do not imply endorsement by the Journal or the CESRAN Int.
  18. Submissions whether they are published or not are not returned.
  19. Although Global Analysis is an on-line journal, editors have intention to publish some special issues in paperback book format.
