This study aims to determine the usability level of Makale Takip (Scientific Article Trace) software which runs all the businesses of Gazi University Journal of Turkish Educational Sciences on the Internet environment respect with "effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction". In the study which has one shot case design, while observation method is used to collect data about effectiveness and efficiency and interview method is used to collect data about satisfaction. During the procedures, the participants are required to complete 9 tasks which have been defined by the researchers before. The research results, completed by the participation of 9 Gazi University Gazi Faculty of Education academicians, show that the tasks' average completion time is 98.33 seconds and average success score is 94.51. In addition, participants give 1.8 difficulty level for the use of the software (1 very easy - 5 very difficult). All the participants show a positive attitude and belief that this software helps the academicians about scientific article processes on journals. Moreover, general satisfaction score given by the participants is 1.2 (1 most satisfaction - 5 not satisfaction). As a result, the Makale Takip software is used by all participants with a higher success and satisfaction.
