JDR Clinical & Translational Research Accepted for Inclusion in MEDLINE

Alexandria, VA, USA – The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) are pleased to announce that IADR/AADR’s newest Journal, JDR Clinical & Translational Research (JDR CTR), has been accepted for inclusion in MEDLINE.

MEDLINE, created by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), is the authoritative bibliographic database containing citations and abstracts in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, health care systems and preclinical sciences from around the world and is used internationally by clinicians, researchers and policy makers to access the world's biomedical research literature. A distinctive feature of MEDLINE is that the records are indexed with the NLM Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®). MEDLINE is the primary component of PubMed® — a database with over 29 million citations for life sciences and biomedical literature.

“For JDR CTR, launched in 2016, to already meet the strict criteria of the NLM Literature Selection Technical Review Committee based on its scientific content, quality, importance, editorial policies and subject matter is a testament to the leadership and vision of the Editor-in-Chief, Jocelyne Feine, Associate Editor, Effie Ioannidou and the JDR CTR scientific advisory board,” said IADR/AADR CEO Christopher H. Fox.

“The JDR CTR is extraordinarily grateful to all the investigators who shared our vision for a new journal focused on clinical and translational research and submitted such high quality manuscripts,” said Editor-in-Chief Jocelyne Feine, McGill University, Quebec, Canada. “The JDR CTR would not have been accepted for inclusion in MEDLINE without our demonstrated track record; being indexed in MEDLINE will greatly increase the discoverability of JDR CTR articles.”
