Dergi hakkında bilgi.

Megaron is an official publication of Yıldız Technical University, Faculty of Architecture. It is an anonymously peer-reviewed e-journal that considers for publication original articles, research briefs, book reviews and viewpoints on planning, architecture, design and construction. Priority of publications is given to original studies; therefore, selection criteria are more refined for reviews. Three issues are published annually. As from 2008 Megaron has been indexed in EBSCO Host Art & Architecture Complete. On 07.04.2008 it was recognised as national refereed journal in the Social Science Data Base of ULAKBIM by TUBITAK.

Manuscripts may be submitted in English or in Turkish. The preferred length for manuscripts submitted is 7000 words including Notes and References for articles, or 2500-3000 words (including Notes and References) for viewpoints and research briefs. All submissions are initially reviewed by the editors, and then are sent to reviewers. All manuscripts are subject to editing and, if necessary, will be returned to the authors for responses to outstanding questions or for addition of any missing information. For accuracy and clarity, a detailed manuscript editing is undertaken for all manuscripts accepted for publication. Final galley proofs are sent to the authors for approval.

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; and that its publication in Megaron is approved by all co-authors. The author(s) transfer(s) the copyright to Yıldız Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, effective if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication. The author(s) guarantee(s) that the manuscript will not be published elsewhere in any other language without the consent of the Faculty. If the manuscript has been presented at a meeting, this should be stated together with the name of the meeting, date, and the place.
