As it is known, in our country, the criteria of Associate Professorship and ACADEMIC INCENTIVES are evaluated by UAK and YÖK within the framework of different legislation.

According to UAK legislation, our congress is international in nature. It meets all of the criteria taken as basis for appointments to teaching staff, teaching assistantships, associate professorship and professorship positions.

According to the provisions of the 2021 Incentive Regulation, in order for a congress held in Turkey or abroad to be within the scope of the incentive, more than half of the participants must be foreigners and these foreign participants must be from at least 5 different countries.

As the congress organizing committee, we cannot yet predict how many papers will come from which countries to our congress. This issue will become clear as of the application deadline.

If our congress cannot meet the requirement of more than 50% foreign participants, if your full texts are published in the congress book, it will not be valid for the incentive applications in 2023.

  • Presence of academicians from 9 different countries in the advisory and scientific committee
  • Congress book publication with ISBN
  • Reviewing the submitted abstracts and full texts by referee

Our congress is an INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS due to the fulfillment of the above criteria.

Since our congress has international accreditation, you can use your full texts published in the congress book with ISBN in all academic categories, including applications for associate professorship.

All papers after the congress will be published in the "Abstract Booklet" with ISBN number. Participants who wish can send their full texts and have their full texts published in the "Full Text Booklet" with ISBN.

Publication of both congress books is free of charge. You can access all the books on our website after the congress.

(If the requirement for more than 50% foreign participants is not met, full-text publication is not within the scope of the incentive. However, you can use your abstracts or full texts in all academic categories, including the application for associate professorship).

Participants can also have their articles published free of charge, provided that they pass the editor and referee processes in the Journal of TAM Academy (TAMDE).

Being a congress participant does not guarantee the publication of an article in the journal. After editing your article in accordance with TAMDE's writing rules and publication principles, it should be sent directly to the journal by you.
