About

Cell Membranes and Free Radical Research is a print and online journal that publishes original research articles, reviews and short reviews on the molecular basis of biophysical, physiological and pharmacological processes that regulate cellular function, and the control or alteration of these processes by the action of receptors, neurotransmitters, second messengers, cation, anions, drugs or disease. Areas of particular interest are four topics. They are A- Ion Channels (Na+ - K+ Channels, Cl – channels, Ca+2 channels, ADP-Ribose and metabolism of NAD+, Patch-clamp applications), B- Oxidative Stress (Antioxidant vitamins, Antioxidant enzymes, Metabolism of Nitric oxide, Oxidative stress, The biophysics of the radicals which springed up from oxygen ), C- Interaction Between Oxidative Stress and Ion Channels (Effects of The Oxidative Stress On The Activation of The Voltage Sensitive Cation Channels, Effect of ADP-Ribose and NAD On Activation of The Cation Channels Which Are Sensitive to Voltage, Effect of The Oxidative Stress On Activation of the TRP Transient Potential Channels ), D- Gene and oxidative stress (Gene abnormalities. Interaction between gene and free radicals. Gene anomalies and iron. Role of radiation and cancer on gene polymorphism) ReadershipAUTHOR GUIDILINES OF CELL MEMBRANES AND FREE RADICAL RESEARCH FOR AUTHORS ONLINE MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION CELL MEMBRANES AND FREE RADICAL RESEARCH has a completely digital submission, review, and production process.

Açık erişimin bilginin global değişimini arttırarak insanlık için yararlı sonuçlar doğuracaktır.Bu dergi sitesindeki isimler ve elektronik posta adresleri bu derginin belirtilen amaçları doğrultusunda kullanılacaktır ve diğer amaçlar veya başka bir bölüm için kullanılmaycaktır.Sayfa düzenleme evresi makalenin şekli, sözcükleri, gramer yapısı, açıklığı ve akıcılığını geliştirmek için amaçlanmıştır. Bir diğer evrede de yalnızca yazın ve şekil düzeltmeleri yapılacağından bu yazar için yazıda yapabileceği son değişiklikler için son şans olmaktadır. Sayfa düzenlemesi yapılacak dosya Word veya .rtf dosyası biçimindedir. Böylece belge kolayca biçimlendirilir. Buradaki açıklamalar iki yöntemi önerir. Birincisi MSWord programının Değişiklikleri İzle olanağını kullanmaktır. Ancak bu yol seçildiğinde yazar, editör ve dizgicilerin programa ulaşım olanağının olması gerekir. İkinci sistem ise, yazılım bağımsızdır ve Harward Educational Review yönteminden izin alınarak buraya alınmıştır. Dergi editörü bu açıklamaları düzenleyip, kendi koşullarına daha uygun biçime getirebilir.

Sayfa düzenlemesi Düzeltme sistemleri

1. Microsoft Değişiklikleri İzle özelliği ile Menü çubuğundaki araçlar sekmesinde "Değişiklikleri İzle" etkinleştirilerek, kopya dizgisini yapan kişi değişiklikler yapar. Eklediği metinler veya sildiği metinler farklı renk ile gösterilir. Değiştirilen belge editöre sunulmak üzere sisteme yüklenir. Editör değişiklikleri inceleyip, yazarin görüşüne sunabilir. Editör ve yazar uygun gördükleri değişiklikleri normal biçime getirirler ve ek düzeltmeleri var ise, Değişiklikleri İzle özelliği ile farklı renklerde olmak üzere, metine eklerler. Metinde köşeli parantez içinde sorular var ise yazar mutlaka bu soruların yanıtını ilgili köşeli parantez içine yazmalıdır. Sayfa düzenleme ekibinden gelen sorular makalenin doğru dizilmesi için önemlidir. Yazar ve editör ile değişikliklerde uyuşulunca, son Sayfa düzenleme işlemi gerçekleştirilir. Bu işlemden sonra yazı görüntü açısından tamamlanıp, basılacak hale gelmek üzere yönlendirilir. Bu basamakta da yazar ve editörlerin görüşü alınacaktır. 2. Harward Educational Review yöntemi Yazıda elektronik değişiklikler yapmak için talimatlar Yazının elektronik kopyasında değişiklik yapılır iken, aşağıdaki yöntemleri kullanınız. Önerilen değişikliklere yanıt verme   Önerilen değişiklikleri kabul ediyorsanız, ilgili metni kalın fontlardan, normal fonta değiştiriniz.   Önerilen değişiklikleri kabul etmiyorsanız, orjinal metni yeniden girip, kalın font yaparak işaretleyiniz. Ekleme ve çıkarımlar yapma   Eklemelerinizi metni kalın font yaparak işaretleyiniz   Silinecek metni yandaki gibi köşeli parantez ve kalın font ile işaretleyiniz: [silinecek metin]   Eğer bir cümle veya daha fazlasını siliyorsanız, lütfen ilgili alana bir not ekleyiniz. Örneğin : [iki cümleyi siliyorum. silinecek metin] Yazarin önerilerine yanıt verme   Yazarın yaptığı değişiklikleri değiştirmeyiniz. Kesinlikle silmeyiniz.   Yazarın önerilerinin sonuna verdiğiniz kararı Yorum işareti ile ekleyiniz. Örneğin:[Yazar notu..... Yorum: silmek istedikleriniz silinecek. ] Yorum yapma   Esaslı değişiklikler veya organizasyonel değişiklikleri açıklamak için yorumları kullanınız   e.g., [Yorum: Üsteki paragrafın 5 yerine 7. olması daha uygun olacak]   Not: Eğer sayfa numaraları söz konusu ise, size basılarak gelen kopyadaki sayfa numaralarını kullanınız. Elektronik işlemler sırasında sayfa numaraları değişebilir...

Elektronik düzeenleme için bir örnek

Orijinal "yazı" dosyası Orjinal makalenizde yapısal veya biçimsel dramatik değişiklikler yaparken, lütfen birlikte çalıştığınız kişilerin görüşlerini alınız. Değişilikleri tamamladığınızde dosya adını değiştiriniz (YazaradıQA.doc -> YazaradiQAR.doc). Yazınızın bir kopyasını basıp, tümüyle değişen elektronik yazı dosyası ile birlikte geri gönderiniz. Eleştiri ve önerilerle yazara geri gönderilen yazı Makalenizde yapısal veya biçimsel dramatik değişiklikler yapmdan önce yazınızı izleyen editörlerle temas kurunuz. Revizyonlarınızı bitirdikten sonra elektronik yazı dosyanızı farklı ad ile kaydediniz. (Örneğin YazaradıQA.doc -> YazaradiQAR.doc). Yazınızın bir kopyasını basıp, tümüyle değişen elektronik yazı dosyası ile birlikte geri gönderiniz. ONA yollanan revize edilmiş yazı Makalenizde yapısal veya biçimsel dramatik değişiklikler yapmdan önce yazınızı izleyen editörlerle temas kurunuz. Lütfen aşağıdaki kurallara uymadaki yetersizliğin yazınızın basılmasında ciddi gecikmelere neden olabileceğini unutmayınız. Revizyonlarınızı bitirdikten sonra elektronik yazı dosyanızı farklı ad ile kaydediniz. (Örneğin YazaradıQA.doc -> YazaradiQAR.doc). Yazınızın bir kopyasını basıp, tümüyle değişen elektronik yazı dosyası ile birlikte geri gönderiniz. Yeni dosyada [silinmiş sözcük] değiştirilmiş bölümler kalsın veya işaret edilsin Örneğin [Yorum: Önerinize cevaben bir cümle ekledim.] Notlar: • Koyu yazılan metinlerin normale çevrilmesi, o paragraftaki değişikliklerin kabulünü gösterir. • Yeni cümlleler eklendi ise, koyu renk karakterler ile işaret edilirler. • [silinen sözcükler] Köşeli parantez içine alınmış metin tümü ile silinecek metindir • Köşeli parantez içinde YORUM: biçiminde başlayan ifadeler editöre görüş bildirmeki için kullanılır
