Summary/Abstract: Greetings and welcome back to Cumhuriyet Theology Journal, which celebrated its 21st year in the academic publication journey. Our journal has achieved great progress in both national and international academic publication. We would like to share with you the achievements that have been made since the second issue of 20th volume, published on 15th December, 2016.Our Journal has complied with all the technical requirements imposed by JournalPark, an electronic open-access system hosting journals that TUBITAK- Turkish National Database recently offers. Within this framework, our new website has come on stream. The new website: order to disseminate the articles, which are academic productions of highly significant endeavours, to international academia and to increase the chance of getting cited in international academic studies, we demand both 150-word Turkish and English abstracts and 750-word summaries of the accepted submission.Our journal now has been indexed by various international indexes: ATLA Religion Database, EBSCO Humanities International Index, EBSCO Humanities Source Ultimate Database, MLA International Bibliography, Central and Eastern European Online Library, The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences and Turkish National Database Social Science and Humanities Database.Moreover, we have also announced the preliminary review form and the review form for the blind review process. We examine Turkish and English titles, summaries, and keywords to make sure that they correspond to the field’s terminology. Furthermore, we require proper nouns and concepts/terms to be written in the reference style of TDV Encyclopaedia of Islam. We also particularly require for the articles to use Chicago Manual Style referencing, which is clearly highlighted in our author guidelines.To improve the academic quality of the journal, we have also checked the article up for plagiarism. The articles that are marked with a result above %15 are returned to the authors with a plagiarism report. Submissions went through a double-blind review process for the issue 20/1, and we have not announced the identities of reviewers since 2016.It might be right to note here that we have been getting more attention from scholarly world day by day with our mission and standards. The journal has received 78 articles between January-April 2017 from the Turkish academics. All articles went through the pre-review process to check the referencing and transliteration style before testing them using a plagiarism checker. We then have forwarded the articles that successfully passed the plagiarism check to our reviewers. Following this process, we have been able to offer to you 21 articles.We are delighted to offer you the various ranges of themes and topics with this new issue. We sincerely thank the contributors for their submission, the editorial and review board, and particularly to the assistant editors, Asst. Prof. Adem Ciftci, Asst. Prof. Sema Yilmaz, R.A. Maruf Cakir and the assistant editors of the language review-process Asst. Prof. Emrah Kaya and Zeynep Yucedogru.We hope to see you all on 15 December 2017 with our next issue.
