Advice to Authors

Advice to Authors

The purpose of the Journal of the Irish Dental Association is to provide good quality information to support continuing education, professional development and best practice. We aim to benefit our members, our patients, and the wider dental profession by publishing original research studies, clinical case reports, position papers, literature reviews, brief communications, clinical features, and other material that is of interest to the Irish dental profession.

The Advice to Authors document explains the format in which original material should be submitted to the Journal of the Irish Dental Association and should be consulted before submitting material.

A completed checklist and patient consent form must accompany all submissions.

Failure to follow these guidelines may result in rejection of manuscripts or delays in the review and publication process. 

An electronic copy of the article in Microsoft Word or similar must be submitted by email to Liz Dodd at:
