Journal of Dental Research
Access to the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) is available to members online. For those interested in a print subscription, IADR membership provides a deep discount. The JDR contains the results of original investigations in all sciences relevant to dentistry and the oral cavity and associated structures and is one of the most cited dental journal. The JDR holds its highest 2-Year Impact Factor in the “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine” category at 5.380. This is the first time the Journal’s Impact Factor has reached above 5 and marks a 13% increase from its 2016 Impact Factor. This news comes from the 2017 Journal Citation Reports® (Clarivate Analytics, 2018). The Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year and helps to evaluate a journal’s relative importance, especially when compared with others in the same field.
JDR Clinical & Translational Research (JDR CTR)
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.
Advances in Dental Research
Advances in Dental Research, an E-supplement to the Journal of Dental Research, is a forum for detailed exploration and timely discussion of significant research developments in the sciences relevant to dentistry and to the chemistry, biology, and function of the oral cavity in health and disease. The proceedings of major conferences, workshops, and symposia are published in this Journal.
