The main goal of Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi/Journal of Linguistics Research is to support the development of research in general linguistics in Turkey by encouraging contributions of high scientific quality. The journal also invites contributions on issues pertaining to various aspects of language that would be of interest to a broad range of readers and aims to be a platform of discussion on such topics.
Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi is mainly but not exclusively devoted to problems of contemporary linguistics in Turkish and other Turkic languages. It also aims to be a platform for language specificity as well as diversity and welcomes work on endangered languages in EuroAsia or elsewhere in the world. It publishes papers written in Turkish or English both in theoretical and applied linguistics and is open to manuscripts based on emprical, data-driven research as well as those that cross disciplinary boundaries. The only criteria for the selection of papers for publication is originality and scholarly standing. The journal does not require a particular theoretical orientation and it does not commit itself to a specific area of linguistics.
addition to original research articles, Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi
publishes book reviews that critically assess the contents of a recently
published book, particularly but not exclusively on Turkish, Turkic
languages or endangered languages in EuroAsia.
Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi occasionally publishes a special issue. The
editors may invite scholars to edit a special issue. Alternatively,
prospective editors who wish to compile a special issue on the topics
that are in the journal's scope may contact one of the editors. The
manuscripts planned to be included in a special issue are subject to
similar peer review process.

All headings on this level should be capitalized. All words and title numbers should be written in bold. At the end of the title number, there shouldn’t be any "." (dot).
- In the second and third level headings, the first word of the second level heading must start at 0,75 cm indent; in the third level, there must be 1 cm indent from the left determined by the tab (according to the left border of the text). The headings in these two levels should be written in italics. In the titles on the second level, the first letter of all words must be capital. Only the first letter of the first word should be capital in the third level headings.
- On all three levels, the first letter after the colon ":" mark, if present in the title, must be capitalized. Other words following the colon mark must conform to the style required by the heading levels.
- If the text contains headings at levels lower than level 3, such as 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.1, they should all be formatted as the third level headings (leave a space of 0.5 cm between the last number of the title number and the first word of the title). Authors should avoid using headings extensively at levels lower than the third level unless absolutely necessary.
- The paragraph settings of the titles:
1st level: 10 pt, boldface, justified; before: 18 pt, after: 6 pt; 0,5 cm indent from the beginning of the line; indent: Hanging, 0,5 cm; line spacing: Exactly, 12 pt
2nd and 3rd levels: 10 pt, italic fonts, justified; line spacing: Exactly, before: 12 pt, after: 6 pt.; 0,75 cm indent from the beginning of the line;
2nd level: 0,75 cm; indent: 0,75 cm
