Journal of Paediatric Dental Research and Practice accepts manuscripts for publication with the understanding that such manuscripts have neither been submitted to another publishing body or journal for consideration for publication nor undergoing publication elsewhere. Submitted manuscripts undergo editorial reviews to determine their suitability for further processing and consideration for publication. The editor reserves the right to edit submitted manuscripts to ensure brevity and clarity of expression. It is also assumed that the authors have considered ALL ethical aspects of research and have taken cognisance of the guidelines of the Helsinki Declaration as revised in 1975 and the ethical guidelines of the institution(s) in which the work was done. Submitted manuscripts undergo technical editing to ensure they meet the journal criteria. Thereafter, the manuscripts are subjected to a plagiarism check with an acceptable similarity index of less than or equal to 20%. Manuscripts that are found suitable for possible publication are sent for peer review by two expert reviewers. A double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identity is adopted. At the end of the peer review process, the comments and suggestions received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author for correction. This process is repeated till the reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscripts. Manuscripts accepted for publication are sent to the journal language editor (English) for grammar and punctuation editing and thereafter copy-edited for print style and format. The grammar proof version will be sent to the corresponding author, who is expected to return the corrected proofs within one week of the receipt of the Gproof. Following the submission of the Gproof, an ‘acceptance letter’ could be issued subsequently if the editor is satisfied with the corrections. When the manuscript is accepted for publication, the copyright of the work and contents shall be transferred to the publisher and no part or thereof shall be used, published or reproduced without the permission of the publishers.
This journal publishes one volume per year.
