Guidelines for Abstracts

The abstracts you will send to be presented at the International Communication and Art Symposium must have the following guidelines for the pre-evaluation that will take place before the evaluation of the referee committee and must be placed in the template setup. The guidelines for the abstracts are as the following.

  1. Abstracts should be written in the language in which they will be presented. There is no need for translation into another language for studies to be presented in English.
  2. Authors wishing to submit Turkish abstracts do not have to include English abstracts in their submissions. Authors who prefer to have the full texts of their papers published in the Symposium Proceedings Book (with ISBN) must add an English abstract to their texts.
  3. The abstract should be between 150-350 words and contain concise information about the scope, purpose, method, findings, and results of the study in question.
  4. If the study to be presented is derived/adapted from any postgraduate study or project, it must be reported as a footnote in the abstract submission.
  5. Abstracts should be written in Times New Romans font with 11 font sizes and justified margins.
  6. At the bottom of the abstracts, at least 3, at most 7 keywords that cover the index area and content of the study should be added.
  7. Direct quotations should be avoided as abstracts will be scanned in the plagiarism software.
  8. Attention should be paid to scientific standards in abstracts, individualizations without a scientific basis should be avoided.
  9. The end of the abstract can be used for stating the disciplines and sub-disciplines to which the study is related, classifying the symposium papers, and converging the common disciplines. Nonetheless, it is not mandatory to specify a discipline or sub-discipline.
