The JDR Clinical & Translational Research is a peer-reviewed, quarterly journal that encompasses all areas of clinical and translational research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. The JDR Clinical & Translational Research is dedicated to publishing original research at the interface between discovery science and clinical application, with the translation of research into healthcare delivery systems at the individual patient, clinical practice, and community levels. Launched by the International and American Associations for Dental Research, JDR Clinical & Translational Research provides a resource for clinicians, scientists, academics, researchers and policy makers across the entire spectrum of the dental community.

Publications will report on clinical and translational research in all oral health-related topics using a variety of appropriate methodological approaches, including:

  • Health Technology Assessment
  • Quantitative
  • Qualitative
  • Multi-methods (e.g. mixed methods)

The JDR Clinical & Translational Research expands on its research content by including high-impact, global oral health policy statements and systematic reviews of issues that affect the oral health of the population. Unique to the JDR Clinical & Translational Research are reports that focus on research with an immediate potential to affect clinical and health services-related outcomes.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

  • The JDR Clinical & Translational Research Clinical & Translational Research (JDR CTR) adheres to the CSE (8th Edition) editorial style. All submitted manuscripts should be formatted in this style.

    The JDR Clinical & Translational Research (JDR CTR) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to the dissemination of new knowledge and information on all science relevant to dentistry and to the oral cavity and associated structures in health and disease. The JDR Clinical & Translational Research’s primary readership consists of researchers, clinician scientists, clinicians, educators, policy-makers and the public. The JDR Clinical & Translational Research is published quarterly and offers OnlineFirst, by which forthcoming articles are published online before they are scheduled to appear in print.

    JDR Clinical & Translational Research operates a conventional single-blind reviewing policy in which the reviewer’s name is always concealed from the submitting Author. All manuscripts are reviewed initially by the Editor and only those papers that meet the scientific aim and scope and editorial standards of the Journal will be sent for outside review. Each original manuscript is reviewed by at least two reviewers. Manuscript reviewers are given 3 weeks to complete their reviews and an editorial decision is generally reached within 4-6 weeks of submission.

    Authors of all articles should be aware of the following guidelines when submitting to JDR CTR. Manuscripts missing any required components of submission will be returned to the authors for correction prior to peer-review.
