ETKI Journal of Literature, Theatre and Culture Studies, a Turkey-based academic journal, is pleased to announce the launching of the first issue. Our mission is to issue an academic periodical of the highest standards, one that provides a forum for innovative discussions in the field of literary studies, theatre studies, cultural studies and literary criticism. The journal accepts submissions of original essays, book reviews, interviews and short commentaries. We especially welcome contributions that take an interdisciplinary and comparative approach. ETKI Journal of Literature, Theatre and Culture Studies  will be a semi-annual journal, accepting submissions in Turkish and English. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by referees assigned by the editorial board. For more detailed information about submission requirements, please write to us at

In our first issue, we would like to include especially postgraduate, early career researchers and those at the beginning of their profession.

Submission length is 5000-8000 words for original articles, and 1500-2000 words for book reviews. Please omit references to the author in manuscripts to ensure anonymous reviews. The journal does not accept manuscripts previously published by or simultaneously submitted to other publication venues. Please contact with any questions.

The web page of the journal is under preparation. Our web page will be put into service after the acceptance and approval of the research papers.


While the journal currently has a distinguished editorial team, ETKİ is looking for book review editors with the passion to drive the journal forward in an exciting period of development. It is a significant role that will require active engagement with the journal and author community, particularly in assisting with book reviews. The role of the editorial board is to act as an ambassador for the journal, working closely with the Editor in Chief and Associate Editors to promote the journal content and engage with the journal’s reader and author community. Successful candidates will be expected to champion the journal and help us to maintain and improve the Journal’s standards and quality by:

Regularly agreeing to review book review papers and handle these promptly to ensure fast turnaround times

Suggest referees for papers that you are unable to review yourself

Support the Journal through the submission of your own manuscripts where appropriate

Support in promoting the Journal

Attend virtual Editorial Board meetings when possible

Be an ambassador for the journal; build, nurture, and grow a community around it;

Increase awareness of the articles published in the journal in all relevant communities and amongst colleagues

Becoming part of the editorial team of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will build your own networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the academic community.
