Scope of Journal
The Indian Journal of Dental Research (IJDR) is a journal of dentistry that invites manuscripts by authors from not only just all the specialties in dentistry, but also from allied fields like pharmacology, microbiology, genetics, etc that are connected in some way to conditions relating to the oral cavity. The IJDR invites scientific submissions from authors in the following categories: Original Research (Evaluative study, Prospective study, Comparative study, Retrospective study, and In Vitro studies), Systematic reviews, Epidemiological reports, Case reports, Short Communications, Letter to the Editor, etc.
The journal is at the cutting edge of publishing international dental research and aims to develop further as a robust platform where original research is encouraged and published. It is a highly reputed journal having been in existence for more than twenty years now. It constantly sets the bar higher for itself in order to set the benchmark for scientific publishing related to dentistry. The IJDR follows a rigorous double-blind peer review process, which is completely impartial and unbiased. The journal fully believes in safeguarding the privacy of subjects involved in the studies. In order to comply with this, the journal ensures that all authors upload the patient consent form when submitting a manuscript involving a study/case report with photographs or human specimens e.g. teeth specimens/soft tissue biopsy samples/in vitro analysis.
