The JDR Clinical & Translational Research is a peer-reviewed, quarterly journal that encompasses all areas of clinical and translational research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. The JDR Clinical & Translational Research is dedicated to publishing original research at the interface between discovery science and clinical application, with the translation of research into healthcare delivery systems at the individual patient, clinical practice, and community levels. Launched by the International Association for Dental, Oral and Craniofacial Research and the American Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research, JDR Clinical & Translational Research provides a resource for clinicians, scientists, academics, researchers and policy makers across the entire spectrum of the dental community.

Publications will report on clinical and translational research in all oral health-related topics using a variety of appropriate methodological approaches, including:

  • Health Technology Assessment
  • Quantitative
  • Qualitative
  • Multi-methods (e.g. mixed methods)

The JDR Clinical & Translational Research expands on its research content by including high-impact, global oral health policy statements and systematic reviews of issues that affect the oral health of the population. Unique to the JDR Clinical & Translational Research are reports that focus on research with an immediate potential to affect clinical and health services-related outcomes.
