Aims & Scope

The Turkish Journal of Forecasting (TJF), as an international and multidisciplinary journal, focuses on forecasting methods. The aim of the TJF is to procure a platform to integrate the research subjects and fields, and to bridge over the between theory and practice dealing with any aspect of forecasting. For this purpose, the TJF publishes high quality refereed papers for the benefit of decision and policy makers. The journal slots in research papers including theoretical, practical, computational and methodological researches and procedures of enhancement the practice of forecasting. The journal is accessible to various perspectives and to constitute the discussion platform to achieve new solutions for facing the real-world forecasting problems. The journal also welcomes the papers dealing with the new concepts of modelling and the contemporary computing intensive forecasting systems on top of the conventional forecasting models in decision-making processes.
