Call Of Papers

The Genç Ekonomistler® Club aims to organize the “International Genç Ekonomistler® Congress”, which will be held for the 6th 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 this year between May 19 – 21, 2023, free of charge and online, with the theme of “Veni Vidi Vixi”.

Within the scope of the congress theme, the call for international papers was published as follows;

“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 an innovative research spirit must reconstruct their policy proposals for the transforming tomorrow to generate bright ideas.”

In this context, the 6th International Genç Ekonomistler® Congress is open to all theoretical and empirical studies of undergraduate and graduate students examining the developments in the world and in Turkey.

For a more detailed list, please review the congress promotion booklet.

By following the relevant basic workflow, academic units will be informed primarily through social media and promotional e-mails to members of the scientific committee, invited speakers and congress supporters throughout the process.

 1. Theme

Unlike many organizations, the congress prepares theme announcements that encourage participants to think more deeply and be creative. The main reason for this is that social sciences are not just theories, they contain social and human elements. The pandemic period is also a part of this process; the limits of social life, the fact that the biggest constraint of life is time, and humanity’s struggle against its own helplessness has inspired all multidisciplinary studies, especially social sciences.

In all this intellectual intensity, the congress said, “… the greatest flaw of humanity; striving for perfection…”, he opens the economic process to rethinking and discussion with free ideas.

In this context, while determining the theme, it was inspired by Victor Hugo’s poem “Veni, Vidi, Vixi” to drive the participants to creativity. The common meaning of the related work is the expression “I came, I saw, I was defeated” and the general analysis of the poem is interpreted as “the feelings of a defeated person”. Within the framework of these meanings, the fact that all researchers include discussions on stagflation, climate change and the end of biodiversity after the pandemic wave (caricature published by Graeme MacKay on November 11, 2021) gives a deeper meaning to the theme.

Congress; through this theme, it invites all researchers to freely examine the topics under the sub-titles (indicated below) and to a scientific feast that adds value to all its stakeholders by supporting their findings with policy proposals.

2. Subtitles

should be clearly stated.

Abstract text should not exceed 200 words. Click to submit a summary.

5. Full Paper

There are 2 different options for writing full text papers. Efforts are being made to encourage researchers specifically to write with LaTeX. At this point, coefficient superiority is ensured in the evaluation process of writing full-text papers with LaTeX. In addition, the participants will be able to write using MS Word. However, writing preference in MS Word creates a lower coefficient effect.

Basically, full-text papers should be prepared in accordance with the template published on http://www.kongregeko.org . In full text submissions;

i. Title of the paper

ii. The owner(s) of the paper;

  • name and surname,
  • university,
  • section,
  • class,
  • transcript document,
  • photo,
  • e-mail
  • phone number

iii. Gel code (maximum 3),

iv. Keyword (maximum 3)

 Full text papers; It should be a maximum of 30 pages, including the abstract and bibliography. Attachments are not included in this page limit. Click here to access the full text template.

The template used for full-text writing is valid in both LaTeX and MS Word. However, there is an additional script-based template for LaTeX. In order to show this template and teach the program, all participants will be shown “on demand” within the framework of congress courses. After this process, participants will be able to complete their work in the relevant format and send it.

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 of each paper is maximum 15 minutes, including questions and answers.

The abstract text of the papers will be published digitally and made available to the public. As a result of the evaluation among the papers in the congress, the best papers will be awarded and only the awarded papers will be published as a booklet. Paper presentations will be made live on YouTube in online sessions.

6. Assessment

3 papers will be awarded in the congress. The evaluation will be divided according to undergraduate and graduate levels, and also Dr. In memory of Yaşar Erdinç, the best 1 paper in the “Finance” branch will be awarded. If there are 2 people who have the paper and one is from the undergraduate level and the other is from the graduate level, the evaluation will be made according to the graduate level. Award-winning works will also be published as congress books. However, the copyrights belong to the authors. 

There are two weights in the scoring of these studies. These will be calculated by the scientific evaluation of the full text of the study and the sum of the scores of the presentation of the papers. While the double-blind referee is involved in the scientific evaluation process; In the evaluation of the presentation, the scores of the session chair will be included.

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 an example as follows.

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 member of the scientific committee 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 the sample general scoring shown in Table 3. 2., the scientific committee evaluation score is the average of two referee evaluations. In this demonstration, it is important to explain the scientific evaluation process in more detail. In the relevant process, the member of the scientific committee evaluates in 3 stages. These;

  • Scientific Evaluation Criteria
  • Plagiarism Scan
  • Writing Format

consists of stages.

The Scientific Evaluation Criteria area is calculated over 100 points, and each question is evaluated between 1 and 5 over 20 basic questions; contains 70% of the total. The detailed view of the relevant scoring is as follows.
