Dr. Martin Taubman, Associate Editor of the JDR, was recognized at the recent Annual Meeting of the Japanese Periodontology Society (JPS) as an honorary member of the society. Here Dr. Taubman was presented with a plaque from the Chairman of the JPS, Dr. Hiromasa Yoshie, who was Dr. Taubman’s first post-doc student. Many of Dr. Taubman’s former post-doc students were in attendance, speaking to how impactful his mentoring has been.
The Journal of Dental Research is very happy to announce the publication of our fourth supplement encompassing all areas of clinical research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. This peer-reviewed supplement will bring emerging contributions in discovery and translational science to clinical application for the healthcare community.
This special issue will focus on addressing the need in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences for a place unique to publish the highest quality research articles on clinical and translational research including, but not limited to behavioral sciences, epidemiology, cariology, oral & pharyngeal cancer, disease diagnostics, evidence based health care delivery, human genetics, health services research, periodontal diseases, and oral medicine, radiology and pathology. In particular, human clinical trials, and large epidemiological studies in the oral health sciences will be given highest priority for publication.
All manuscripts submitted for consideration will be subject to the peer review process in a manner identical to the manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Dental Research.Manuscript should adhere to the following guidelines: a limit of 2,700 words (including introduction, materials, methods, results, discussion; excluding abstract, acknowledgments, figure legends and references); 4 total figures or tables; 30 references; and must contain a 250 word abstract. Additional information regarding requirements and formatting of manuscripts can be found at http://www.iadr.org/files/public/JDRInstructionstoAuthors.pdf.
Papers should be submitted to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jdr, no later than January 12, 2014 to be given full consideration.

Please include in your cover letter that your paper is being submitted for publication consideration in the JDR special issue on Clinical Research.
The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) have just released the third clinical supplement to the Journal of Dental Research (JDR). Clinical implant dentistry is the focus of the latest clinical supplement, the second in 2013, which will serve as a companion to the December issue of the Journal.
This peer-reviewed supplement is dedicated to clinical research in implant dentistry and includes studies representing different designs including randomized controlled trials (RCTs), case-control studies, prospective case series and systematic reviews. The RCTs have addressed important questions on (i) patient-centered outcomes (Hamdan et al., 2013), (ii) effect of immediate load on biological markers (Prati et al., 2013) and (iii) influence of abutment-implant connections on crestal bone changes (Enkling et al., 2013). Cost-effectiveness of anterior implants vs. fixed dental prosthesis was evaluated in a case-control study (Zitzmann et al., 2013). Two prospective case series described early implant placement with contour augmentation and 3D-evaluations of ridge alterations after tooth extraction (Buser et al., 2013; Chappuis et al., 2013). Finally, systematic reviews assessed the outcome of dental implants installed in irradiated jaws (Chambrone et al., 2013) and another assessing outcomes of reconstructive procedures in treatment of peri-implantitis (Khoshkam et al., 2013). The supplement was co-edited by Professor Tord Berglundh from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
“I am thankful to the authors who submitted their research for publication in the JDR clinical implant dentistry supplement,” said JDR Editor William Giannobile. “I am also grateful to Tord Berglundh who served as guest editor of this clinical supplement. This issue contains a valuable collection of advances in the field that can benefit researchers, clinicians and ultimately our patients.”

The International and American Associations for Dental Research announced its Journal of Dental Research (JDR) increased its Two-Year Scientific Impact Factor (SIF) from 3.486 to 3.826, which also increased its ranking to #2 among 82 journals published in the “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine” category. At 0.02325 the JDR continues to hold the highest Eigenfactor Score of journals published in that category and ranks #1 in Article Influence. This news comes from the new 2012 Scientific Impact Factor rankings, published by the Journal Citation Reports (JCR).
“I am pleased that the JDR was able to increase its Two-Year Scientific Impact Factor to 3.826,” said JDR Editor William Giannobile. “This is a testament to the high-caliber research that scientists continue to submit for publication in the JDR and the hard work of the committed team of reviewers who work diligently to ensure that the Journal publishes quality research. We look forward to working together as the JDR strives to deliver the most cutting-edge science in the field.”
The Eigenfactor Score calculation is based on the number of times articles from the journal published in the past five years have been cited in the JCR year, but it also considers which journals have contributed these citations so that highly cited journals will influence the network more than lesser cited journals. References from one article in a journal to another article from the same journal are removed, so that Eigenfactor Scores are not influenced by journal self-citations.
The SIF is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The Impact Factor helps to evaluate a journal’s relative importance, especially when compared with others in the same field. The Impact Factor was developed in the mid-sixties by Eugene Garfield, from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI, Philadelphia, Pa.). It is based on the premise that the more often the articles in a particular journal are referenced by other articles, the greater the “impact” that journal has in its field. The Impact Factor is calculated by ISI on an annual basis, and is available only through ISI’s Journal Citation Reports.
Due to the incredibly enthusiastic response to the 2012 Journal of Dental Research (JDR) clinical supplement (http://jdr.sagepub.com/content/91/7_suppl.toc), the International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) have published the second clinical supplement to the JDR. Released online today, this supplement will serve as a companion to the July issue of the Journal.
This peer-reviewed supplement encompasses all areas of clinical research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. Additionally, it brings emerging contributions in discovery and translational science to clinical application for the healthcare community. Some of the papers that are included in this special issue are “Cluster-randomized Trial of Infant Nutrition Training for Caries Prevention,” by lead author Bruce Chaffee, University of California – Berkeley, USA; “Expanding the Foundation for Personalized Medicine: Implications and Challenges for Dentistry,” by lead author Martha Somerman, National Institutes of Health-National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, Bethesda, Maryland, USA; and “Longitudinal Analyses of Early Lesions by Fluorescence: An Observational Study,” by lead author Andrea Ferreira Zandona, Indiana University, USA.
“I am pleased with the research that was published in the second JDR supplement on clinical research,” said JDR Editor William Giannobile. “This supplement showcases the advances in oral health from clinical trials to health services research, and to large-scale oral epidemiological studies.”
