The British Dental Journal (BDJ) is an international, peer reviewed journal for the dental community, published by Springer Nature on behalf of the British Dental Association. We aim to inform our readers of ideas, opinions, developments and key issues in dentistry - clinical, practical and scientific - to spark interest, debate and discussion amongst dentists of all disciplines.
Types of Articles
These are scientific papers with a focus on clinical research to enable researchers and scientists to communicate their findings to the rest of the community. Some papers will also be featured in our 'Research Insights' section. This includes summaries of papers, Q&As with authors, infographics and expert views.
Our practice papers are articles and reports on the latest developments and information relevant for those in dental practice. This section now also includes our 'How to' papers which are designed to provide the reader with practical advice to follow or at the least to inform them and 'Refresher guide to' papers which outline a particular topic/area studied at dental school or in postgraduate courses.
Please note, case reports are not normally considered for publication in the BDJ. Case reports may only be submitted if they report on a case that will have a significant impact on day-to-day clinical practice or a particularly unusual and interesting case that will attract the interest of the journal's general readership. Case reports will not be considered for publication when of little relevance or usefulness to readers beyond the setting of the case reported.
These papers are any type of paper, article or report that is relevant to the vital subject of dental education, whether it is undergraduate, postgraduate, specialist or lifelong learning.
Our opinion papers express the views and opinions of people that are open to debate and discussion. This section will keep you aware of what people are thinking in dentistry today, and introduce differing views for debate.
General articles cover all the topics that don't quite fit into the other categories. These include clinical guidelines and historical papers.
Letters should be sent directly to our Editor-in-Chief at firstname.lastname@example.org. Priority is given to letters under 500 words long, and content may be edited for space. Our letters section provides the space for individual news, views and opinion.
Case Report Letters: We also have a section for case reports within our Letters pages. Please write the case report in letter format and submit as detailed above, specifying that the letter is for the 'Case Reports' section. If you wish, we can accommodate up to two small images; please send images with 300 dpi resolution as separate TIFF, JPEG or EPD files.
Authorship: the BDJ's normal procedure is to credit the author(s) of a letter by their name and location (no qualifications). Specific institutional or organisational affiliations or qualifications are included solely at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief, when deemed necessary to add context to the letter.
Our book reviews provide you with a thorough insight into the latest books in dentistry. Most reviews for the BDJ are commissioned, although the BDJ does occasionally accept reviews submitted without prior agreement. Submitted reviews should be approximately 400 words in length.
To honour members of the dental community, we publish obituaries. All submitted obituaries should be 400 words in length. Content is down to the individual author; however, approval of the family should be given prior to publication.
