Yunus Emre Institute has published the second issue of "Türk Dünyası Dergisi" (Turkic World Journal), which aims to create readership in the Turkic world, promote cultural values of Turkic peoples to each other, increase the recognition of common elements among languages and cultures, and raise awareness of new generations.

The journal deals with the subjects that are common to the entire Turkic world and is published in 10 contemporary written Turkic languages, namely Azerbaijani, Bashkir, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Crimean, Tatar, Turkish, Turkmen, and Uighur, and its second issue covers the life and poems of Sufi poet Yunus Emre, who gave his name to Yunus Emre Institute, in the literature section. The sightseeing and publicity section describes Eskişehir, which was the Cultural Capital of the Turkic World in 2013, and which hosts the tomb of Yunus Emre, whereas the cuisine section showcases stuffed grape leaves with olive oil, one of the leading dishes from the Ottoman palace. The "Who calls it what?" section of the journal gives the names of body parts and organs in 10 dialects which are the journal's official publication languages.

As was the case with the first issue, this issue's articles written in Turkish as spoken in Turkey have been translated to other Turkic written languages by experts and edited by other experts.

The journal's next issue will focus on Azerbaijan, one of the independent countries of the Turkic world.
