Our project was accomplished as a result of participation by eminent Turkologists and Turkish historians from around the world. It started with the formation of a Editorial Board and an Advisory Board comprised of the foremost academic experts on Turkish history and civilization. On the basis of a draft of subjects that was set out by the Editorial Board, which acted as an international jury, orders were made for articles. Our team contacted some 3,059 academics and experts in almost all countries of the world. In Turkey, another 3,120 academics, from professors to research assistants, who are working in a variety of fields, ranging from history to literature, linguistics, philosophy, history of arts, history of science, history of law, economic history and social history were contacted. At the end of these contacts, our project began to emerge with 2,320 academics and experts from 48 countries (589 from outside of Turkey and the remaining 1,721 from Turkey) agreeing to contribute their valuable works. Of the participants, 721 are professors; 377 are associate professors; 538 are assistant professors; 385 are doctors and 289 are experts and researchers. The number of articles that are published in our work is 1,623, of which 1,248 are from Turkey and 375 from other countries. Most of the articles that were omitted were scientific works; but some editorial criteria, such as avoiding repetition, inconformity with format rules and failure of authors to send them in time were factors behind the Publication Committee's decision to discard them.

Originality was one of the most important criteria in accepting an article, as our Publication Committee gave utmost care to publish only those articles that had never been published in any language in the past. In the meantime, the work also contained a few articles (4 percent of the entire work) by now deceased authors as a show of respect and fidelity to them. Archeological findings and archives of world countries that related to Turks were scanned while doing this research.

Our work is a collection of three parts that are made up of 37 volumes and 35.000 pages. The main part, Türkler, consists of 21 volumes, one of which was the index, and 20.500 pages; The Turks, which was prepared as a summary of the work in English, is the most comprehensive work in a foreign language and comprises six volumes and 6.500 pages. The last part is the ten-volume Genel Türk Tarihi, which is a general evaluation of the main articles on a chronological basis and consisting of a total of 8.000 pages. Some 30.000 pieces of visual materials (pictures, photographs, maps, paintings and miniatures, etc.) were used throughout the work.
