Scope of the Journal
IDJSR invites manuscripts for publication in form of Original Articles, Systematic Reviews, Short Communications, Narratives, Letter to the Editor, Case Reports, Epidemiological Studies, Clinical Studies etc. from all disciplines of Dentistry. 
Peer review
IDJSR is a peer reviewed publication. We follow a double-blind peer review for all our submitted manuscripts which have gone through the initial review by the Editorial Board.
Governing Body 
The Journal is governed by the Editorial Board and the Reviewers Panel which can be accessed in this website
Article Processing Fees
The Journal charges minimal processing fees for the articles. There are no charges for peer review. They are to be borne only after the manuscript has been selected for publication. However, keeping in mind our diverse readership in countries of various socio-economic groups, we have variety of options to choose from. We also provide FREE publication options so that funds are not a barrier in publication of your research.
All the submitted work is protected by the Creative Common Attributions License (CCAL). However, the Journal requires copyright transfer upon acceptance for publication signed by all the authors
Research Misconduct
IDJSR follows stringent policies against research malpractices like plagiarism, citation manipulation, data manipulation/fabrication, duplicate submissions etc. If at any point, these malpractices have been found - the manuscript shall be withdrawn from the process and an explanation shall be sought from the authors. If found unsatisfactory, the authors may also be banned for life from submitting their research in the Journal. Guidelines in detail can be seen here as given by COPE.
Conflicts of Interest
Upon submission of the manuscript, a conflict of interests form must be submitted declaring the same. This must be signed by all the authors and the involvement of any institution, funding agencies or partners must be clearly stated. 
IDJSR remains and will always be an OPEN ACCESS publication. All the published literature can be accessed directly from the website - or from databases the Journal is indexed. 
Revenue Sources
Currently, IDJSR solely relies on articles processing charges for its running. It follows a no-profit model and all the revenue generated is used in maintenance of website, fees for indexing databases, publishing cost and other miscellaneous expenditures. 
Publishing Schedule
IDJSR is a quarterly publication releasing 4 issues in an year. 
The Journal has all published issues archived in the website, accessible at any point of time. In adverse circumstances of discontinuation of the publication (if ever), all the published literature will still be available on the website, indexing databases and publisher website for indefinite period.
