ANNOUNCEMENT AND APOLOGIES
As the Editorial Board for the publication of the proceedings of the 2nd International IDEA Conference, we regret to announce with our apologies that, despite the enormous editorial work carried out so far while there is still much material to be edited, we have decided, owing to the following reasons, to discontinue the remaining editorial work and suspend the publication of the proceedings:
1. Because of the copyright material used in a large number of papers, there has emerged for the editorial board a danger of legal and financial liabilities. Since the would-be publication of the proceedings was to come out as a two-volume book under the imprint of Hacettepe University as well as IDEA (The English Language and Literature Research Association of Turkey, we, as the editorial board, would not venture to take a legal risk because of the possible copyright procedures.
2. Despite our initial requirements that all the papers were to be submitted in the currently-practised MLA Style format and the specified font and line space, most papers were submitted in irregular and/or unacceptable formats, and this has led to serious and, in some cases, extremely time-consuming editing problems. Consequently, the editorial work originally planned and envisaged to be completed by November 2007 was prolonged and could not be completed within a reasonable period of time.
3. A number of papers have been written in some computer programme that does not allow them to be edited or copied. When one opens the paper for editing, the computer warns of a problem and is automatically shut down. This has unfortunately hampered our work enormously.
So, as the editorial board, we apologize for having decided to discontinue and cancel the editing of the proceedings.
On behalf of the Editorial Board
Prof.Dr. Himmet UmunÁ
2nd International IDEA Conference Coordinator
