Here you can download a list of Turkish journals in educational research in an rtf format. The list provides information on the journal`s title, URL, language, the focus of the journal and the publishing institution. All journals are Open Access.

Please note that the list does not claim to be exhaustive.

Several Turkish platforms that list professional journals unfortunately don`t provide a search or filter to extract journals for educational research only.

This is the case with the following portals:

Here you can only filter for "Journals in Social Sciences and Humanities" Inside this category, you have to browse manually for journals in educational sciences.

This portal offers a list of journals in educational sciences, but the list cannot be linked to directly. Please click the follwoing on this website to get to the list: "Sosyal ve Beşeri Bilimler Veri Tabanı (SBVT)" >> "Veri Tabanına Giren Dergi Listesi" >> "Eğitim Bilimleri"

This index provides information and links to journals in the educational sector worldwide. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to filter journals from Turkey only. You have to go through the list manually.
We also link to two articles that analyse journal articles from the educational sciences and hence include a list of journals. A further link leads you to a list of journals provided on the website of the [Turkish] National Educational Congress UEBK 2016:
