Guidelines for the KDA Journal

Manuscript submission: All materials submitted to be considered for publication should be submitted exclusively to the JKDA, with signed consent from all authors. For hospital based scientific articles and clinical case reports, written permission must be obtained from the Director or Superintendent of the hospital where the research was conducted or the case(s) were managed.

Articles should report data from original research that is relevant for the provision of oral health care in developing countries. Reviews must be comprehensive analyses of the subject matter, giving a current and balanced view of the issues discussed. Case reports must be authentic, appropriately illustrated and of critical significance to the practice of dentistry. Letters to the editor should not be more than 800 words and should contain only one illustration with less than 5 references. Priority shall be given to letters responding to articles published in the journal within four months.

Editorials are usually commissioned but unsolicited communications of up to 1 000 words are welcome. These will also be subjected to a peer review process. Obituaries which are of interest to the JKDA readership may also be submitted. The formal obituary should contain the following information: full names, date and place of birth, education history, degrees and qualification, year and place of qualification, recent appointments and achievements, family members and date and cause of death.
