Submission of manuscripts
Submission of manuscripts to
the Journal of International Dental and Medical Research
is via e-mail, also hard copy with electronic record submissions will be
accepted. Submitting authors must provide all information requested during the
submission process, including: corresponding authors contact information;
names, titles (such as associate professor, chairman,), academic degrees
(such asDMD, MS, PhD,) , and affiliations of all authors; short (running)

keywords appear in the U.S. National Library of Medicine Medical Subject
Headings, or MeSH (found at
Both an UNBLINDED and BLINDED
version of the manuscript must be sent to the journal. Tables and graphs should
appear at the end of the main document, while photos and photomicrographs should
be submitted as separate files (.jpg or .tiff format). Prior to submission, the
corresponding author must guarantee that the article has not been published, and
is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Submission of multi-authored
manuscripts implies participation of each of the authors in the preparation of
the paper. Only individuals who have made a significant contribution to the
study or manuscript should be listed as authors. The efforts of others should be
noted in the Acknowledgments section at the end of the manuscript. The
corresponding author should submit the following statement: All authors have
made substantive contribution to this study and/or manuscript, and all have
reviewed the final paper prior to its submission. Authors (including authors of
letters to the editor) are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal
relationships that might bias their work. If such conflicts exist, the authors
must provide additional detail in the letter to the editor. Funding sources for
the work being submitted must be disclosed in the Acknowledgments section
of the manuscript.
Scientific articles should be
organized under the following headings: Abstract, Introduction, Methods,
Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments, and References.
Titles of all papers should not
exceed 15 words.
The Introduction section
should include only pertinent references. When included for a study, the
Methods section should be sufficiently detailed to replicate the study. The
Results section should include only results and not discussion of the
data. The Discussion section should discuss the results, but not repeat
them. The Conclusions section should consist of succinct, numbered
statements that are supported by the results of the study. They should not
repeat the Results section.
submissions must include an abstract. Abstracts should be brief providing the
reader with a concise but complete summary of the paper. Generalizations such as
methods were described should not be used. Scientific articles should have
approximately 200 words .
Key Words: Submitting
authors must provide 2 to 5 keywords from
Editorial style: Papers
will be published in English, using American spelling. Manuscripts must be
submitted with proper English grammar, syntax, and spelling. Authors should
express their own findings in the past tense and use the present tense where
reference is made to existing knowledge, or where the author is stating what is
known or concluded. Footnotes should be avoided and their content incorporated
into the text. Numbers should be represented as digits; only numbers beginning a
sentence should be spelled out. The editors reserve the right to revise the
wording of papers in the interest of the journals standards of clarity and
Units of measure:
Authors should express all quantitative values in the International System of
Units (SI units)
unless reporting English units
from a cited reference. Figures and tables should use SI units, with any
necessary conversion factors given in legends or footnotes. All numbers should
be expressed as digits, and percent values should be expressed as whole numbers.
Laboratory data values should be rounded to the number of digits that refl ects
the precision of the results and the sensitivity of the Measurement procedure.
Statistical tests: The
results of all statistical comparisons should be reported to include the
statistical test value and the associated P value and confi dence
interval, if appropri- ate. If P> P .01, the actual value for P
should be expressed to 2 digits, whether or not P is signifi cant,
unless rounding a signifi cant P value expressed to 3 digits would make
it nonsignifi cant (eg, P=.049, not P P=.05). If P P<.01,
it should P be expressed to 3 digits (eg, P=.003, not P P<.05).
Actual P P values should be expressed unless P<.001, in which case
they P should be so designated. Nonsignifi cant values should not be
expressed as NS. For confi dence intervals, the number of digits should equal
the number of digits in the point estimate. For example, for an odds ratio of
3.56, the 95% confi dence interval should be reported as 1.23, 5.67, not as
Tooth names: The
complete names of individual teeth should be given in full in the text of
articles using the following convention: [primary/permanent]
[maxillary/mandibular] [right/left] [central/lateral or first/second/third]
[tooth type]. Examples: primary maxillary right first molar, permanent
mandibular first molars, but mandibular right second premolar. In tables
these names may be abbreviated by the Universal system (A-T for primary teeth,
1-32 for permanent teeth).
Materials: Any mention of commercially produced materials, instruments,
devices, software, etc, must be followed by the name of the manufacturer and the
manufacturers location in parentheses. Example: ... in an Excel spreadsheet
(Microsoft, Inc,Redmond, Wash).
Abbreviations should be used to make manuscripts more concise. The first time an
abbreviation appears, it should be placed in parentheses following the full
spelling of the term (eg,
permanent first molars (PFMs)
). In manuscripts
using more than three abbreviations, authors should use bold typeface for the
first appearance of each abbreviation.
materials taken from other sources, a written statement from the authors and
publisher giving permission to Journal of International
Dental and Medical Research for
reproduction must be provided. Waivers atric and statements of informed
consent must accompany the manuscript when it is submitted for review. Waivers
should accompany any photograph showing a human subject unless the subjects
features are blocked enough to prevent identifi cation.
Human and Animal Subjects:
Manuscripts of research involving human or animal subjects must state in the
Methods section that the study was approved by an Institutional Review Board
(IRB) or other institutional research ethics committee using language similar to
this institutionally approved study
. IRB approval for human subjects must
also be obtained if the study involved the use of tissues from humans (eg,
extracted teeth), or work produced by humans (eg, systematic analyses and
meta-analyses).When human subjects have been used, the text should indicate that
informed consent was obtained from all participating adult subjects, and parents
or legal guardians of minors or incapacitated adults. If required by the
authors institution, informed assent must be obtained from participating
children at or above the age specified by the institution. The cover letter for

procedures, possible discomforts or risks, as well as possible benefits were
explained fully to the human subjects involved, and their informed consent was
obtained prior to the investigation.
should be provided at a minimum resolution of 600 dpi as a .tif or .jpg fi le.
Photomicrographs must include a scale labeled with a convenient unit of length
(eg, 50 µm). Figures should be inserted at the end of the main Word document.
Figures should be numbered in Arabic numerals in the order of the first citation
in the text. Legends for each figure must be printed on a separate page. Include
a key for symbols or letters used in the figures.
Figure legends should be
understandable without reference to the text. A key for any symbols or letters
used in the figure should be included. Abbreviations should be explained in a
footnote to the figure. If illustrations, tables, or other excerpts are included
from copyrighted works the author is responsible for obtaining written
