JDR Article “Factors Affecting Wound Healing” Wins SAGE Publishing 10-Year Impact Award

Alexandria, Va., USA — The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) are pleased to announce that the Journal of Dental Research article “Factors Affecting Wound Healing,” by Shujuan Guo, West China Hospital of Stomatology, Chengdu, China, and Luisa A. DiPietro, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA, received a 10-Year Impact Award. This article had the second most citations in all SAGE journals from 2010-20.

Launched in 2020 by SAGE Publishing, the 10-Year Impact Awards recognize research that is influential for the longer-term. Each year SAGE presents awards to three articles published in SAGE journals that are most highly cited over a 10-year period.

First published on February 5, 2010, “Factors Affecting Wound Healing” reviews the literature on the wound healing process and the most significant factors that affect it. The factors discussed include oxygenation, infection, age and sex hormones, psychological stress, diabetes, obesity, medications, alcoholism, smoking and nutrition. A better understanding of the influence of these factors on repair may lead to therapeutics that improve wound healing and resolve impaired wounds.

“With over 1,800 citations since publication, this article remains a key resource for information on the topic,” said JDR Editor-in-Chief Nicholas Jakubovics, Newcastle University, England. “The JDR has innovated our field since 1919 and it is wonderful to see this article being recognized for the impact it has had and will continue to have.”
