1) Ethical Approvals
In all reports of original studies with humans, authors should specifically state the nature of the ethical review and clearance of the study protocol. Informed consent must be obtained from human subjects participating in research studies. Some reports, such as those dealing with institutionalized children or mentally retarded persons, may need additional details of ethical clearance.
Experimental Subjects: Experimentation involving human subjects will only be published if such research has been conducted in full accordance with ethical principles, including the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki (version 2008) and the additional requirements, if any, of the country where the research has been carried out.
Manuscripts must be accompanied by a statement that the experiments were undertaken with the understanding and written consent of each subject and according to the above mentioned principles.
 
2) Clinical Trials
Clinical trials should be reported using the CONSORT guidelines available at http://www.consort-statement.org. A CONSORT checklist should also be included in the submission material.
Dental Journal encourages authors submitting manuscripts reporting from a clinical trial to register the trials in any of the following free, public clinical trials registries: www.clinicaltrials.gov, http://clinicaltrials.ifpma.org/clinicaltrials, http://isrctn.org/. The clinical trial registration number and name of the trial register will then be published with the manuscript.
 
3) Observational and Other Studies
Observational studies such as cohort, case-control and cross-sectional studies should be reported consistent with guidelines like STROBE.Meta analysis for systematic reviews should be reported consistent with guidelines like QUOROM and MOOSE. These guidelines can be accessed at www.equator-network.org
 
4) Copyright Assignment

Upon acceptance of a manuscript, authors are required to assign the copyright to publish their article. A completed Copyright Transfer Agreement must be sent before any manuscript can be published. Authors must send the completed Copyright Transfer Agreement upon receiving notice of manuscript acceptance, i.e., do not send the Copyright Transfer Agreement at submission.

5) Manuscript Format and Structure
Format

Language: All submissions must be in English; both British and American spelling conventions are acceptable. Authors for whom English is a second language must have their manuscript professionally edited by an English speaking person before submission to make sure the English is of high quality. It is preferred that manuscript is professionally edited.


Font: All submissions must be double spaced using standard 12 point font size.

Abbreviations, Symbols and Nomenclature: Authors can consult the following source: CBE Style Manual Committee. Scientific style and format: the CBE manual for authors, editors, and publishers. 6th ed. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1994

Structure

All manuscripts submitted to Dental Journal should follow the guidelines regarding structure as below.

Title Page: should include a title of no more than 50 words, a running head of no more than 50 characters and the names and institutional affiliations of all authors of the manuscript should be included.

Abstract: All manuscripts submitted to Dental Journal should use a structured abstract under the headings: Objectives - Methods - Results - Conclusions.

Main Text of Original Articles should include Introduction, Materials and Methods and Discussion.

Introduction: should be focused, outlining the historical or logical origins of the study and not summarize the results; exhaustive literature reviews are not appropriate. It should close with the explicit statement of the specific aims of the investigation.

Materials and Methods must contain sufficient details such that, in combination with the references cited, all studies reported can be fully reproduced. As a condition of publication, authors are required to make materials and methods used freely available to academic researchers for their own use.

Discussion: may usually start with a brief summary of the major findings, but repetition of parts of the abstract or of the results section should be avoided. The section should end with a brief conclusion and a comment on the potential clinical programme or policy relevance of the findings. Statements and interpretation of the data should be appropriately supported by original references.

References

The list of references begins on a fresh page in the manuscript, using the Vancouver format. References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Identified references in the text should be sequentially numbered by Arabic numerals in parentheses, e.g., (1,3,9). Superscript in-text references are not acceptable. For correct style, authors are referred to: International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. Uniform requirements for manuscripts submitted to biomedical journals: writing and editing for biomedical publication. http://www.icmje.org October 2004. For abbreviations of journal names, consult http://www.lib.umich.edu/dentlib/resources/serialsabbr.html

Avoid reference to 'unpublished observations', and manuscripts not yet accepted for publication. References to abstracts should be avoided if possible; such references are appropriate only if they are recent enough that time has not permitted full publication. References to written personal communications (not oral) may be inserted in parentheses in the text.

We recommend the use of a tool such as EndNote or Reference Manager for reference management and formatting. EndNote reference styles can be searched for here: www.endnote.com/support/enstyles.asp Reference Manager reference styles can be searched for here: www.refman.com/support/rmstyles.asp

Examples of the Vancouver reference style are given below:

Preparation of Electronic Figures for Publication: Although low quality images are adequate for review purposes, print publication requires high quality images to prevent the final product being blurred or fuzzy. Submit EPS (lineart) or TIFF (halftone/photographs) files only. MS PowerPoint and Word Graphics are unsuitable for printed pictures. Do not use pixel-oriented programmes. Scans (TIFF only) should have a resolution of 300 dpi (halftone) or 600 to 1200 dpi (line drawings) in relation to the reproduction size (see below). Please submit the data for figures in black and white or submit a colourwork agreement form. EPS files should be saved with fonts embedded (and with a TIFF preview if possible). For scanned images, the scanning resolution (at final image size) should be as follows to ensure good reproduction: line art: >600 dpi; half-tones (including gel photographs): >300 dpi; figures containing both halftone and line images: >600 dpi.

Permissions: If all or parts of previously published illustrations are used, permission must be obtained from the copyright holder concerned. It is the author's responsibility to obtain these in writing and provide copies to the Publishers.

6) After Aceptance
Proof Corrections

The corresponding author will receive an email alert containing a link to a web site. A working email address must therefore be provided for the corresponding author. The proof can be downloaded as a PDF (portable document format) file from this site.

Acrobat Reader will be required in order to read this file. This software can be downloaded (free of charge) from the following Web site: www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html . This will enable the file to be opened, read on screen, and printed out in order for any corrections to be added. Further instructions will be sent with the proof. Hard copy proofs will be posted if no e-mail address is available; in your absence, please arrange for a colleague to access your e-mail to retrieve the proofs. Proofs must be returned within three days of receipt.

As changes to proofs are costly, we ask that you only correct typesetting errors. Excessive changes made by the author in the proofs, excluding typesetting errors, will be charged separately. Other than in exceptional circumstances, all illustrations are retained by the publisher. Please note that the author is responsible for all statements made in his work, including changes made by the copy editor.
