The Genç Ekonomistler Kulübü aims to organize the “Genç Ekonomistler Student Congress”, which will be held for the 5th time this year, and to make this organization traditional, which arouses great interest in many universities across the country. The congress, which will be held on an international scale, will be held online this year between 19-22 May 2022 with the theme of “Tomorrow”.
“The development of today’s economy, which carries the footprints of the past, with an innovative mentality is gaining momentum day by day. Young generations, who are the hope of the future, will become prominent researchers of the changing world conditions by making efforts with determination. In the dilemma of uncertainties and dreams, young generations with innovative research spirit should reconstruct their policy proposals according to the transforming tomorrow in order to generate bright ideas. ”
In this context, the 5th International Genç Ekonomistler Student Congress is open to all theoretical and empirical studies of undergraduate and graduate students examining the developments in the world and in Turkey.
For those who want to present a paper at the congress, the program is as follows:

Participants in the congress can prepare papers in the following gel classifications. The sub-branches that are suggested and expected to be studied within the relevant classifications are as follows.
Some associations were created within the scope of the congress theme “Tomorrow”. These associations are shared in order to explain the “Tomorrow” theme and to help the participants create creative ideas. Related topics will be the special themes of the scientific committee and invited speaker seminars to be held during the congress. 4 of the 18 themes associated with; The concepts of “Hope, Expectation, Change and Luminous” are based on explaining the main theme of “Tomorrow”. The 4 related concepts are also the meaning of each day on 19 – 22 May 2022. Related connotations in this context;
In order to make sense of the “Tomorrow” theme, the participants should identify their own research questions by harmonizing the connotations in this list with the Jel codes given above, and prepare a paper by producing policies.
Conditions of participation and related statutes are as follows.
You can access the template for abstract writing here.
In abstract submissions;
should be clearly stated.
The abstract should not exceed 200 words. In the abstracts, maximum 3 Jel codes and keywords should describe the paper.
Full-text papers should be prepared in accordance with the template published at http://www.kongregeko.org.
In full text submissions;
should be clearly stated.
Full text papers; It should be a maximum of 25 pages, including the abstract and bibliography. Click here to access the full text template.
Each paper can be presented by a maximum of 2 people. Paper owners who do not receive the full text within the relevant dates or send only the summary text will not be able to attend the congress as participants. Paper presentations will be made in Turkish or English. The presentation time for each paper is a maximum of 15 minutes, including questions and answers. The abstract text of the papers will be published as an e-book and will be open to the public. As a result of the evaluation among the papers in the congress, the best papers will be awarded and will be published as a booklet. Paper presentations will be made in online sessions on YouTube live broadcast on the ZOOM platform.
7 papers will be awarded in the congress. Evaluation will be divided according to undergraduate and graduate levels, and 2 categories will be formed under the congress and special title, and a total of 7 separate groups will be formed in these categories. If there are 2 people who have the paper, one of them is from the undergraduate level and the other is from the graduate level, the evaluation will be made according to the graduate level. Provided that the award groups are given separately at the undergraduate and graduate levels; gold (1st), silver (2nd), and bronze (3rd). In addition, we lost in 2019 Dr. In memory of Yaşar Erdinç, the best 1 paper in the “Finance” branch will be awarded. The awarded works will be published as congress book.
There are two weights in the scoring of these studies. These will be calculated by adding the scores of the full text of the study and the presentation of the papers. In the evaluation of the presentation, the scores of the business people, who are the session chair and session guests, will be included as a result of the goals of the congress.
In order to ensure the transparency principle in the congress, the scores are announced openly. This weighting is done over 100 points and will be calculated as follows as an example.
In accordance with the principle of transparency; Scientific committee evaluation and presentation scores of all participants will be notified to their parties. Pursuant to the same principle; If the scientific committee member does not evaluate the relevant study on time, the organizing committee will evaluate the study.
The entire evaluation process regarding the more transparent execution of the relevant process is shared with the public in detail. In this context, the table above shows how the final process is calculated in general. In this demonstration, it is important to explain the scientific evaluation process in more detail.
The scientific evaluation process is evaluated according to the “double-blind referee” method and the average of both scores is taken. In this context, the “Scientific Evaluation” process is carried out in 3 sub-processes as “Scientific Review, Plagiarism and Written Language”.
First of all, in this field, which is calculated over 100 points, the scientific evaluation of the thesis, which covers an area of 50 points, is made by the referees. This is actually called “Scientific Analysis” within the total score of 100 points and includes 50% of the total over 10 basic questions.
Then, “Plagiarism” reports are received by an independent agent using the Turnitin program. This report has a weight of 30 points to be added to the “Scientific Review”. However, in the calculation process, it is weighted on a 100-point scale (100 x (1 – Plagiarism Rate)). Receiving 30% of this score is actually equivalent to maintaining 30 points of weight.
Finally, a scoring is made in the “Writing Language”, which has been put into practice as of 2022. In this context, it is aimed to increase the habit of coding, especially in social sciences, by supporting all participants not only as competitors, but also by supporting their learning processes. According to the relevant plans, as of March 12, 2022, a total of 12 courses will be taught in LaTeX language. Learning this language also has a weighted rating on current Microsoft Word usage. The writing process via LaTeX or MS Word will be calculated with a total weight of 20 points. If the participant used LaTeX writing, he will be scored with a 75% multiplier of 20 points, while his MS Word preference will be added by multiplying 25% of the same score.
In the awarding of the congress, some criteria are also applied at the point of converting the number of abstract papers accepted for more fair and qualified elections into full text. In the event that 75% or more of the number of abstracts announced turns into full texts, candidates with a total score of 70 and above will be nominated for 7 awards in 3 categories in total. Here, when the data of the past years are examined, candidates with 80 and above points generally win awards. Within the scope of the relevant regulation; If the conversion rate of the summary texts to the full text is below 75%, only the candidates with the highest scores in 3 categories in total will be awarded with a total score of 80 and above. The relevant regulation includes the desire to award higher degrees instead of multiple awards in order to decrease the interest in academic literature and to have the desired qualifications, especially after the pandemic.
