Preparing for peer-reviewing and publication

The publication possibility is determined by the “Clinical dentistry” journal scientific editor and editorial board. Selected materials are sent for blind peer review and evaluated according to 13 criteria:

  1. The obtained data originality and novelty — for scientific articles, or the presented problem completeness and correctness for reviews.
  2. Topic relevance and studied question compliance with the current state.
  3. Work aims and objectives clarity, their compliance with the presented factual material.
  4. Materials and methods detailed description.
  5. Adequacy of the chosen research methods.
  6. Statistical analysis adequacy.
  7. Results with the set research goals compliance.
  8. Evaluation of the obtained data and the achieved results.
  9. Comparison of results with other authors publications.
  10. References on the research topic significant publications
  11. Findings validity.
  12. Scientific or practical significance of the work results.
  13. The quality and quantity of the abstract.

Articles are reviewed by leading dental specialists-professors, doctors of science, associate professors (on a voluntary basis). The expert’s selection is carried out by the scientific editor, chief editor and members of the editorial board. At least two anonymous blind reviews are made for each article.

The reviewer makes comments on the material content, if any present, and makes recommendations for improvement.

Corrections made by the author to the article should be highlighted in color.

The deadline for authors to make edits is no more than a month.

After receiving a positive review, the editorial board adds the article to the publication plan and sends it to the technical editor, who checks the material for compliance with technical requirements.

Positive reviews are accompanied by the following conclusions:

Revised manuscripts are sent back to the editorial office and reviewed by the scientific editor or reviewer. Negative reviews, as well as unsolvable contradictions are considered at the meeting of the editorial board. After the decision is made, the corresponding message is sent to the author.

The review period is no more than a month.

Ethics of scientific publications

Scientific publications ethics is a system of professional behavior in the relationships between authors, reviewers, editors, publishers, and readers in the process of creating, distributing, and using scientific publications norms. The journal “Clinical dentistry” presses for complying with the high publication ethics standards adopted by the international scientific community, developed in the domestic non-profit partnership “Committee on ethics of scientific publications” (http://publicet.org/), the Committee on publication Ethics (COPE).

The ethical behavior principles are mandatory for all parties involved in the reviewing and publishing a scientific article process: the author(s), reviewers, editor-in-chief, editorial team, editorial board of the journal, and publisher.

Scientific journal editors abide by the professional ethics principles:

  1. The presented data reliability and scientific work significance.
  2. The objectiveness — the manuscript is evaluated on its scientific content-regardless of manuscript authors race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, nationality, citizenship, origin, social status, or political views.
  3. The confidentiality.
  4. The disclosure policy and conflicts of interest. Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts cannot be used in personal research without the manuscript author written consent. Information or ideas obtained during the review process, related to possible benefits, should be kept confidential and not used for self-profit.
    Editors should reject from reviewing manuscripts if conflicts of interest due to competitive, collaborative, or other relationships with manuscript authors or companies, and possibly other organizations associated with the manuscript has place.
  5. Supervision over publications.
    The editor who has provided forcefully arguments about the publication statements or conclusions falsity should inform the publisher (and/or the relevant scientific society) in order to amending, taking out the publication, expressing concern and other relevant statements.
    The editor-in-chief and the publisher, should not leave unanswered claims concerning the reviewed manuscripts or published materials. If a conflict situation is detected, they must take all necessary measures to restore violated of the rights, and if errors are detected- to facilitate the corrections or refutations publication.
  6. Involvement and cooperation in terms of research.
    The editor (or science society) should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints concerning a submitted manuscript or published materials have been presented. Such measures generally include interaction with the manuscript authors and relevant complaint or claim argumentation but may also involve interaction with relevant organizations and research centers.

Reviewers make author's materials scientific expertise, so their actions must be impartial, regiment by the following principles:

  1. The manuscripts reviewing contributes to make decision about publication and helps the author improve the work quality. Reviewing is necessary in scientific communications and is the foundation of scientific approach.
  2. The reviewer, who does not count himself as specialist in the article field or knows will not be able to give an article review, should notify the editor and reject from the reviewing process.
  3. Not any of the author or co-author of the work, the academic degree applicants' research advisors and/or employees of the department where the author works could be the reviewer.
  4. Any manuscripts received from the editorial board for peer review is a confidential document. It cannot be discussed with other persons, except indicated by the editor-in-chief.
  5. The reviewer should be objective. Personal manuscript author criticism is unacceptable. The reviewer should express opinion clearly, plainly, and argumentatively.
  6. The reviewer, if possible, should find previously published articles relevant to a peer-reviewed article subject and have been not quoted by the author. Any statement in the review about some observation, conclusion, or argument, which were published previously, should be accompanied by an accurate bibliographic reference. The reviewer should also draw the editor-in-chief attention to the reviewed article significant or partial similitude with any other published previously.
  7. The reviewer should not use the information and ideas from the reviewed article for self-profit, maintaining the information and ideas confidentiality.
  8. The reviewer should not accept manuscripts for consideration if there is a conflict of interest caused by competition, collaboration or other relationships with any authors or organizations associated with the article.

The authors submit to the editorial board articles containing new scientific results obtained by the author(s), which have not been published before.

The authors are responsible for the provided information in the manuscript, that suggests the following principles:

  1. Original research report authors should present the performed work's accurate data and an objective its significance discussion. The data underlying the work must be presented accurately. The work should contain sufficient details and bibliographic references for possible result reproduction.
  2. To provide true-to-fact work or research results. Knowingly false or falsified statements are unacceptable and lead to unethical behavior.
  3. The editor-in-chief may request the scientific research original data from the authors due to review process, and the authors should be ready to provide open access to such data, if possible. In any case authors should retain the original materials for a rational period after publication.
  4. To guarantee the research results presented in the manuscript originality and individuality. In the borrowing other authors statements the article should contain appropriate bibliographic references with mandatory author and the original source indication. All articles submitted to the editorial office are checked in the “Antiplagiat” system. Inordinate borrowing and plagiarism in any form, including unformulated quotations, paraphrasing, or assigning the other people's research results rights are unethical and unacceptable actions. The article, which is a compilation of data published before by other authors, without creative revision and personal author's point of view on presented problem would be rejected for publication in the journal.
  5. To recognize the contribution of all persons, influenced the course of research or determined the submitted scientific work nature. In particular, the article should contain bibliographic references to Russian and foreign publications which results were important during the research. Information obtained privately through conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties should not be used without obtaining explicit written permission from its source. All sources must be disclosed. Even if written or illustrative materials from many people are used, permission must be obtained and submitted to the editor.
  6. To submit an original manuscript to the journal, that has not been sent or is not currently under review into another journal and has not previously been published in another journal. Non-observance these principles is considered a outrage of publication ethics and gives ammunition to removing the article from review. The text of the article must be original, so published in the presented form in a periodical for the first time. If the manuscript elements were previously published in another article, the authors must refer to an earlier work and indicate what is the significant difference between the new work and the previous one. Verbatim copying of own work and paraphrasing is unacceptable, previous work results could only be used as a basis for new conclusions.
  7. Publishing an article certain type (for example, translated articles) in more than one journal in some cases is ethical with some stipulations. Authors and editors of interested journals must agree to a secondary publication that necessarily presents the same data and its interpretations as in the first published work. The primary work bibliography should also be presented in the second publication. More information about acceptable forms of secondary (repeated) publications can be found on the page www.icmje.org.
  8. To guarantee the correct co-authors list composition. The manuscript co-authors list should include all persons who have made a significant intellectual contribution to manuscript concept, structure, or results interpretation. All other participants should be thanked in "Acknowledgements". All co-authors should get acquainted with the final article version, approve it, and agree with its submission for publication. All authors mentioned in the article should be publicly responsible for the content of the article. If the article is a multidisciplinary work, co-authors may be responsible for their personal contribution. It is unacceptable to specify persons who did not participate in the study among the co-authors.
  9. If the work involves using chemical products, procedures or equipment, which using may involve risk, the author should clearly indicate this in the manuscript.
  10. If animals or people as objects of research were involved in work, the authors should make sure that the manuscript indicates that all research stages comply with the legislation and regulations of research organizations and approved by the relevant ethical committees. The manuscript should clearly indicate that informed consent has been obtained from all people who have been the subjects of research. Author must always ensure that privacy rights are respected.
  11. In cause of founding in the article significant errors or inaccuracies at the stage of its review or after its publication, the editorial board of the journal should be immediately notified. Then the co-decision about acknowledgment of mistake and/or correct it as soon as possible should be made by editorial board and author(s). If the editorial board finds out from a third man that the published work contains significant mistakes, the author must immediately correct them, or provide the editorial board with proof of the provided information correctness.
  12. To indicate in manuscripts all sources of funding for the work, declare possible conflicts of interest that may affect the results of the research, their interpretation, as well as the opinions of reviewers. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed as early as possible.

The publisher is responsible for works publishing, which requires following the basic principles:

  1. To work towards of ethical obligations fulfillment by the editorial board, reviewers, and authors in accordance with these requirements.
  2. To support the editorial board in reviewing claims to the published materials ethical aspects and help to cooperate with other journals and/or publishers, if it is promotive of editorial duties acting.
  3. To ensure the confidentiality of any information received from the publication’s authors until its publication.
  4. To be aware of non-profit journal activity and of absence of making a profit purpose.
  5. To be aware the potential profit from advertising do not affect on the editorial board decision about accepting the article for publication.
  6. To be always ready to publish corrections, clarifications, disclaimers, and apologies when it is necessary.
  7. To provide the possibility to editorial board on excluding publications containing the borrowed content and inaccurate data.

Indexing and archiving

The journal “Clinical dentistry” has been included in the Higher Attestation Commission (belongs to the Russia Ministry of Science and Higher Education) base since 2012, indexed in the Russian science citation index (RSCI) since 2014, and is part of the core of the RSCI.

Preparations are underway for joining Scopus.

Abstracts in Russian and English are published on the journal's website, and in 2—4 weeks after publication-in the Russian Science Library (RSL) on the eLibrary platform. The full texts are published on the eLibrary website. Trans 12 months after the publication, full access to the texts on the magazine's website and in the RSL is opened.

There are three types of articles in RSL. Participation in this articles types is included in the scientific rating calculation and the total number of publications of the author: scientific article, (scientific) review and short letter. The “short letter” concept includes clinical cases and other practically valuable articles. Publications that do not undergo the scientific work criteria are assigned the “miscellaneous” type in the RSL, despite the formal characteristics. The decision to assign the article type is made by the editorial board.

Manuscript and layout

When submitting an article to the “Clinical dentistry” journal, the authors should provide a properly executed document in accordance with the following requirements. The document includes:

Title page

The title page all authors should be recapitulated, information about the authors and their affiliation to organizations (affiliation) also should be led. Than the translation of this data into English is followed, and a statement about the conflict of interest (there being or not) is required. Also, on the title page, the correspond author (or the person responsible for the correspondence) contact phone number and e-mail address should be stated.

Examples:


Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, Moscow, Russia

Sechenov University, Moscow, Russia

RUDN University, Moscow, Russia

AuthorID is the author ID in the eLibrary.

To ensure blind review, the title page with information about the authors is deleted when article is sent to reviewers.

The organization name in English should be taken from the official website. Recommendations for translation with examples (available from July 27, 2020) could be found on the page http://kstom.ru/translation.php.

Authors and affiliation

All persons designated as “authors” should be aligned with the criteria for this concept. The participation of each author in the work should be sufficient for taking responsibility for its content. The right to be called an author is based on:

Participation that consists only in providing funding or selecting material for an article does not justify inclusion in the author's group. The research team overall management is not considered sufficient for authorship. All team members who do not meet the authorship criteria must be listed in the “Acknowledgements” section with their consent.

The order in which the authors will be indicated is determined by their joint decision.

Authors, information about authors and their affiliation to organizations are given in the format:

Example:

Author IDs are not published in the printed version, but are indicated on the journal's website (in revision) and sent to the RSL (since No. 2/2020). Each author should be registered in the RSL and ORCID.

After the list of authors follows the numbered list of authors institutions-workplaces, where the article working on was carried out, should follow. The sequence of it is as authors mentioned. The organization's index is its numerical order in this list. If all authors work in the same institution, the index is omitted. If the author worked on the article in several organizations, their indexes are separated by comma, and their positions are separated by semicolons.

Examples (positions and IDs are omitted for brevity):


Belgorod State University, Belgorod, Russia

One or more authors from different organizations, several workplaces:


1 Pushkin City Dental Polyclinic, Pushkino, Russia

2 Central research institute of dental and maxillofacial surgery, Moscow, Russia

3 RUDN University, Moscow, Russia

Conflict of interest

The conflict of interest related to a particular manuscript occurs if one of the participants in the review or publication process — the author, reviewer, or editor — has obligations that could influence their opinion. The most common cause conflicts of interest is financial relationships. But there may be other reasons — personal relationships, scientific rivalry.

Participants in the review and publication process must report about the conflict of interest presence.

Title

The article headline should be short, exhaustive, and unique. There is no necessity for invention juristically and academically correct headline. The article headline should be corresponded to the article abstract (summary) and the context. Also authors should convict by searching in the RSL, that the headline and its translation have been unique for at least the past 10 years.

Abstract or annotation

For scientific articles, this is an extremely brief content summary with the most important numerical data. In the abstract the scientific work aims and objectives, material and methods, results, and conclusions about the possibility of practical application should be described.
