Peer Review Process

All articles submitted to the Advanced Dental Journal are evaluated by at least two independent reviewers who are qualified experts in the subject field.

The reviewing process in the Advanced Dental Journal is double-blind. This means that both the authors' and reviewers' identities are concealed from the other party throughout the reviewing process. That is why authors are required to submit the title page containing their identities in a separate file.

The peer reviewer is responsible for critically reading and evaluating a manuscript in their field of specialty, and then providing respectful, constructive, and honest feedback to authors about their submission. The reviewers are asked to give their objective opinion on the strengths and weaknesses of the article. They also suggest ways to improve the strength and quality of the work and evaluate the relevance and originality of the manuscript.

Reviewer comments indicate whether the paper should be published or not along with any needed adjustments. Rejected papers are sent back to the authors with the commentaries provided by the reviewers and indications as to whether they can be re-submitted.

The final editorial decision is based on reviewer's recommendations as well as the originality and quality of the submitted manuscript.
