Journal History

G.U. Journal of Science is published by Gazi University, Institute of Science and Technology (Ankara-Turkey.) The first issue of the journal was published in 1988. While initially it was available only in Turkish, it became bilingual later on, and it has been only in English since 2006. Four issues per year are published for the appearance of these in a timely manner and all issues of the journal are also available on-line at for free.


The scope of the journal includes all the fields of basic science, engineering and architecture. Along with the decision of publishing the journal in English, the Editorial Board was renewed to include members from other countries to enlarge the targeted area. This journal is peer-reviewed and foreign referees along with Turkish ones participate in the evaluation process. As a result of these improvements the journal is now covered by indexes such as EBSCO, ENGINEERING INDEX, INSPEC, PROQUEST, SCOPUS and ISI Master Journal List. We expect it to be covered by SCI index soon.
