The Journal of Higher Education and Science has started its 10th year of publication with the issue of April 2020.
The current issue came up with 20 articles, one review and 19 research articles. Presenting this issue, I would
like to briefly share some of the developments in nine years from April 2011 to date we have experienced in
our journal of which I have been the editor since the first issue.
During my editorial period, 381 articles including 112 reviews, 267 research articles and two letters to
editors have been published in the regular issues of Higher Education and Science Journal, which have been
meticulously adhered to projected printing dates and published every four months, three times a year. In 2012,
a supplementary issue devoted to Restructuring of Higher Education in Turkey including 11 review articles
I would like to emphasize that we pay attention and give priority to publish qualified articles in English and
addressed from different countries, as we believe that this will increase the recognition and comprehensibility
of our journal, among other goals.

OAJI, DOAJ, Index Copernicus, EBSCO (Education Source), DRJI, Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte, WorldCat,
