YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies invites contributions for its fourth and fifth volumes to be published in December 2022 and December 2023. YILLIK is a peer-reviewed, open access, international academic journal featuring cutting-edge research on Istanbul’s past and present, published by the Istanbul Research Institute in print and online (via DergiPark). YILLIK is indexed by SCOPUS and the MLA International Bibliography.
YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies is accepting submissions of original research articles, opinion pieces and visual essays (Meclis), book and exhibition reviews in Turkish or English, by researchers working on any period of the city through the lens of history, history of art and architecture, archaeology, sociology, anthropology, geography, urban planning, urban studies, and other related disciplines in humanities or social sciences.
Annual of Istanbul Studies, which has been published by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Istanbul Research Institute since 2012, featuring many valuable articles by distinguished writers over the course of 7 issues, is being relaunched with its new title, YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies.
Our publication which presents current research articles dealing with civilizations that existed in the city, written, oral and material cultures, the changing historical and human geographies of the city, traces of human and non-human actors, from the prehistoric era until today will be transformed into a double blind peer-reviewed journal to appear in national and international scientific publication indices. Thus, we are aiming to incorporate a larger variety of content in YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies and to increase its recognition. We believe that working with a larger advisory board from various disciplines will also have a positive impact on the development, increase, and institutionalization of Istanbul-related study fields. Starting from the eighth issue, which is due to appear at the end of 2019, the journal will publish double blind peer-reviewed individual articles as well as special section articles, essays (Meclis), book and exhibition reviews, and a regularly updated Istanbul bibliography.
