Journal of Dental Research, Dental Clinics, Dental Prospects conducts an initial technical/editorial screening of the submissions in the Editorial Office. Submissions that do not adhere to the Instructions for authors will be returned to authors for corrections. Also, to give authors rapid feedback, manuscripts that are not judged to be of broad interest and significance or not likely to be ultimately publishable in the journal will be returned to authors without further processing.

The Journal ensures double-blind peer-review of the manuscripts past initial evaluation. The manuscripts are reviewed by at least two external reviewers who are experts in the field and are selected by the Editor-in-Chief or members of the Editorial Board. Occasionally, a member of the Editorial Board may also be assigned as a reviewer.

The comments of the reviewers are evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief and the final decision is sent to the authors. The revised manuscripts are also reviewed, usually by the same reviewers. Minor revisions may be evaluated in the Editorial Office.

The initial evaluation of the submission takes usually 1 week. The peer-review process may take 8 to 12 weeks to complete. We ask our reviewers to send their comments in a timely manner so that we can handle submissions appropriately.
