The four academics were among a group of more than 1,000 scholars who signed a declaration in January criticising the government’s brutal military operations on majority-Kurdish areas of the country since last July.
They were arrested last month after holding a news conference during which they stood by the declaration.
Hundreds of civilians have been killed in the military sieges of south-eastern cities in response to renewed Kurdistan Workers’ Party attacks.
Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in front of the courthouse in Istanbul to show their support for the Cumhuriyet newspaper’s chief editor Can Dundar and Ankara representative Erdem Gul, as well as the four academics.
The in-camera trial of Mr Dundar and Mr Gul resumed in a separate chamber of the Istanbul court, but was adjourned again until May 6.
