Welcome to Dental Press Journal of Orthodontics
The Dental Press Journal of Orthodontics was launched in 1996 with the purpose of publishing original scientific papers, significant reviews, case reports, brief communications and other materials related to Orthodontics and Facial Orthopedics.
Since 2005, it has been indexed by SciELO - Scientific Electronic Library Online, which consists of a set of scientific journals on the Internet aiming to ensure visibility and universal access to its scientific literature. The SciELO standard integrates procedures to measure the use and impact of these journals. In Brazil, the graduate education system uses this benchmark to assess the best scientific journals in Dentistry and other areas. The government assesses the productivity level of its faculty considering the number of publications made by professors, masters and PhDs to establish public policies and to foster and finance research activities in Brazil.
In this context, the Dental Press Journal, after 13 years of continuous publication, is now edited and published in English.
