Aims and Scope
Turkish Journal of Inequalities is an international journal which provides publication possibility of original research papers in the fields of inequality theory.
Turkish Journal of Inequalities (TJI) is a journal that aims to unite and stimulate mathematical research community. It is published electronically 2 times a year and accepts English-language original research papers in all areas of mathematics, but mostly related to inequalities. From time to time TJI will consider survey/review articles for publication in exceptional circumstances. All articles are fully refereed and are judged by their contribution to advancing the state of the science of mathematics.
Manuscripts are invited from academicians, research students and scientists for publication consideration. Papers are accepted for editorial consideration through online submission with the understanding that they have not been published, submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.
Turkish Journal of Inequalities (TJI) is an international research journal devoted to the publication of significant articles in all areas and sub-areas of inequalities and applications. Subject matters should be strongly related to inequalities, such as, but not restricted to, the following: inequalities in analysis, inequalities in approximation theory, inequalities in combinatorics, inequalities in economics, inequalities in geometry, inequalities in mechanics, inequalities in optimization, inequalities in stochastic analysis and applications. Submitted papers must be correct, original, nontrivial and well written. Badly written papers will be automatically dismissed at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief. All manuscripts are refereed under the same standards as those used by the finest-quality printed mathematical journals.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in PDF format to the TJI Editorial Office through the provided web interface.
The author who submitted the article for publication will be denoted as a corresponding author. He/She manages all communication and correspondence with the TJI regarding the article.
In order to facilitate refereeing, copies of those papers (whether by the author or someone else) which are essential and referred to in the manuscript but are not conveniently accessible, should be enclosed.
In order to submit a manuscript, you first need to login to the www.tjinequality.com website. If you do not have an account, you can create one from register.
Preparation of Manuscript
The title page should include:
- The name(s) of the author(s) (no degrees)
- A concise and informative title
- The affiliation(s) and e-mail address(es) of the author(s)
- The e-mail address of the corresponding author
- Running head less than 60 characters.
Please provide an abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references. It should make minimal use of mathematical symbols and displayed formulas
Please provide 4 to 6 keywords which can be used for indexing purposes.
Mathematics Subject Classification (2010) with primary (and secondary) subject classification codes and a list of 3-4 key words must be given. See www.ams.org/msc
Manuscripts should be submitted in LaTeX. Please use Turkish Journal of Inequalities LaTeX macro package.
The submission should include the original source (including all style files and figures) and a PDF version of the compiled output.
Example File : TJI-template.rar
Word files are not accepted.
Please use the decimal system of headings with no more than three levels.
Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.
Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section on the title page. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.
The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work.

- All tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals.
- Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order.
- For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table.
- Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption.
- Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.
English Language editing
For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript you need to ensure the English language is of sufficient quality to be understood. If you need help with writing in English you should consider:
- Asking a colleague who is a native English speaker to review your manuscript for clarity.
- Visiting the English language tutorial which covers the common mistakes when writing in English.
- Using a professional language editing service where editors will improve the English to ensure that your meaning is clear and identify problems that require your review.
The manuscript submission and peer review process is broken down into the following steps:
- The Author submits a manuscript.
- The Editor-in-Chief assigns an Editor to act as Review Editor for the paper.
- The Editor assigns Referees.
- The Referees review the manuscript and send reports.
- The Editor makes a decision and the author is contacted.
The purpose of the proof is to check for typesetting or conversion errors and the completeness and accuracy of the text, tables and figures. Substantial changes in content, e.g., new results, corrected values, title and authorship, are not allowed without the approval of the Editor. The author will receive proofs only once. Late return of the proofs will delay the article to a later issue.
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to:
- Share their article for personal use, internal institutional use and scholarly sharing purposes, with TJI logo.
- Retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data).
- Proper attribution and credit for the published work.
There is no publication charge.
Your benefit of publishing with us

- Convenient citation tracking via e-mail alert
- Secure archiving by TJI web-site
Instruction For Referees
Turkish Journal of Inequalities ask that our referees judge papers as exposition rather than research. Our goal is that all articles and notes should be inviting to most readers. That does not mean the level of material is elementary, even advanced articles can be inviting. Making articles inviting usually means aiming them at the right audience, which ought to be mathematicians who are novices in the subject. For example, authors writing about analysis should think about what they would say to the algebraist down the hall or to a graduate student in the program. This is someone who knows mathematics, but needs to be reminded about this subject.
It is our goal to publish articles and notes that are error free and we ask referees to proofread the articles and notes to help ensure that the math is accurate. However, it is the author, not the referees who is ultimately responsible for the content of his/her article. Referees are encouraged to offer constructive suggestions but not to serve as boards of certification or as ghostwriters for careless authors.
Your primary role as a referee is to help the editor determine how to proceed with the manuscript. We ask referees to comment on general problems that might be apparent in an article. However, it is the author’s responsibility to adhere to MAA style and proper usage and grammar. It is the editor's responsibility to reject papers that are seriously flawed.
Time for Reviewing
Turkish Journal of Inequalities ask that you send us your referee report within three months. If you need more time, please let the related editor know.
If you have received a request but have not responded, we will send you a reminder after 10 days and a second reminder after 10 days. After that, you may be un-invited.
If you have received a request and have agreed to review, we will send you a first reminder after your due date and a second reminder 30 days after your due date. At that time we may contact you personally or you may be un-invited.
