Ethics Committee Permission

It was elaborated in 2020 on the Code of Ethics, assuming that the permissions were obtained for studies requiring ethical committee permission in the field of research, the issue of “providing information about permission in the article” was added to the criteria of the journals in the TR Dizin.

Detailed information on the subject is given below:
QUESTION 1: Is ethics committee permission required for all articles?
No. It is also stated in the criteria as articles requiring “Ethics Committee Permission”.
The researches requiring the permission of the Ethics Committee are as follows.
  • Any research carried out with qualitative or quantitative approaches that require data collection from participants using survey, interview, focus group work, observation, experiment, interview techniques,
  • Use of humans and animals (including material / data) for experimental or other scientific purposes,
  • Clinical researches on humans,
  • Researches on animals,
  • Retrospective studies in accordance with the law of protection of personal data,
  • In the case reports, it is stated that the “informed consent form” was taken,
  • Obtaining and specifying the permission of the owners for the use of scales, surveys and photographs of others,
  • Stating that the copyright regulations are complied with for the ideas and works of art used
QUESTION 2: Should retrospective ethical Board Permission be obtained for publications produced from the study and thesis completed in previous years?
Before 2020, research data has been used, produced from postgraduate / doctoral studies (should be specified in the article), and the articles that have been submitted to the journal for the previous year, have not received retrospective ethics permission.
QUESTION 3: Are these restrictions imposed on publications outside the universities with these rules of TR Dizin?
No. Researchers who are not members of the university can also apply to the Ethics Committees in their region.
