The quarterly scientific journal "Karafan" has been in publication since autumn, 2003 with the objective of turning ideas and opinions into action, developing technology and applied knowledge, and producing questions for carrying out fundamental research in the field of technical and vocational education at the Technical and Vocational University. On 21st July, 2013, Karafan succeeded in obtaining a scientific license with registration number 3/18/60837 from the Commission for Review of Scientific Journals, Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. This journal is published four times a year.
Karafan Quarterly Scientific Journal seeks to publish articles that use the results of fundamental research to reach the true perfection of behaviours, methods, tools, equipment, products, structures, and patterns used in human societies. This research, which emphasizes the link between ideas and practice in different disciplines of the Technical and Vocational University, is based on learnable skills and participatory models and also creates sectoral research. These studies do not take place in a vacuum. Rather, they emerge in the scientific space in search of fundamental research which both influence and are influenced by.
Below are some of the goals of the Karafan Quarterly Scientific Journal:
• Turning ideas and opinions into action
• Developing technology and applied knowledge
• Generating questions for basic research
• Providing solutions to practical problems
