Dental Press Publishing developed these guidelines following the standards of the ICMJE (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors) and based on the best practices and ethical standards in the conduct and reporting of research and other materials published in its journals, thus, helping and directing authors, editors and other professionals involved in peer reviewing and publishing scientific editorial content, as well as creating and distributing accurate, clear and reproducible data, with a commitment to publishing unbiased articles.

Peer review policy

All submissions to Dental Press Publishing journals are assessed by an Editor, who will decide whether they are suitable for peer review. Where an Editor is on the author list or has any other competing interest regarding a specific manuscript, another member of the Editorial Board will be assigned to assume responsibility for overseeing peer review. Submissions felt to be suitable for consideration will be sent for double-blind peer review by appropriate independent experts identified by the Handling Editor. Editors will make a decision based on the reviewers’ reports and authors are sent these reports along with the editorial decision on their manuscript. Authors should note that even in light of one positive report, concerns raised by another reviewer may fundamentally undermine the study and result in the manuscript being rejected.

Advertising policy

Dental Press Publishing will consider acceptance of advertisements for products and services related to the practice of the journals and for products and services of general interest to readers. For more information, contact or sales department at to request a current Media Kit.
