In order to provide reliable and credible research and information to the dental community, the Journal IDA is a double-blind peer reviewed publication. Our double-blind review system reduces bias by maintaining complete anonymity of authors and reviewers. By submitting a manuscript for publication to JIDA, authors are agreeing to undergo the IDA peer review process. A copy of our peer review policy is below.
Unless prior arrangements have been made, scientific manuscripts and case studies must be between 1,500 and 5,000 words, not including the title, abstract, references and captions. All manuscripts, graphics, illustrations, and charts must be submitted as digital files. Microsoft Word is the preferred format for all text submissions; graphics should be high resolution and submitted as JPG, JPEG, TIFF or EPS files. Please avoid GIF files as the quality is generally not acceptable for print.
Any patient who is clearly identified in the manuscript text, graphics, or photographs must sign and submit an identification release consent form. The consent form must be submitted to IDA with the manuscript. A copy of the consent form is available from IDA upon request.
All authors are requested to provide information concerning funding sources: who provided financial support for the conduct of the research and/or preparation of the article and to briefly describe the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in study design; in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to submit the article for publication. If the funding source(s) had no such involvement, then this should be stated.
Bio and Headshot
A short bio and headshot is requested for each author of the manuscript. Bios should be no more than 150 words and include author’s affiliations, academic degrees and preferred contact information. In the case of manuscripts with multiple authors, please list authors in preferred order of appearance. If no preference is to be given, authors will be listed alphabetically by last name.
All references and resources should be cited using AP style in order of appearance in the manuscript.
