The Center for Social Research (TAM) was established at the beginning of 2022 by scientists with academic sensitivities shaped around universal principles. Our Center, which set out to contribute to the goal of making Turkish the language of science, is a peer-reviewed social sciences journal called TAM Academy, which will be published twice a year from the first day. It declared that it will be the representative of a mission that guides and directs our country, our people, the Turkish world, contributes to the decision mechanisms with strategic evaluations, and opens horizons, in line with its targets with the TAM Congresses to be held every year. In this direction, it presented its first studies to the scientific world before completing one year.
TAM Academy met its readers with its first two issues, dated May and November 2022. This book, the preface of which you are reading, consists of the full texts of the papers accepted after the referee process among the papers presented at the TAM 1st International Social Sciences Congress, which we held in Antalya’s Kaş district on 20-22 May 2022. In our congress, 43 papers were presented with the participation of 60 scientists from Hong Kong, which is an important part of the People’s Republic of China, Cameroon, Serbia, and universities all over Turkey.
You will be able to read seven of these papers in full text in this book and watch their videos on our YouTube channel youtube.com/@tamakademi via the QR codes on the papers. While bringing this book, which is the second work of TAM Publishing, to the world of science, I would like to express my endless thanks to the members of our Center for Social Research think tank and Fikirbas Advertising Agency, who have contributed greatly to the realization of our congress and the goals we have set, and I wish you a good read with the hope of contributing to academic knowledge.
