The Importance of Peer Review

As a peer-reviewed journal, Decisions in Dentistry follows stringent protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of our peer-reviewed content — and we believe it’s important for readers to understand how this process works. All peer-reviewed content is vetted using a double-blind format — meaning, the papers are blinded so the reviewers don’t know who wrote the article, and the authors don’t know who reviewed the submission. This ensures impartiality. At a minimum, each paper is reviewed by at least two experts in that subject area. Reviewers use our author guidelines as the framework for their evaluations, as well as a specific rubric that helps them determine if an article is acceptable for publication. In addition, reviewers are encouraged to make suggestions or corrections on the manuscript and provide comments in a dedicated area of the peer-review form. Our authors use these critiques to make revisions when preparing the final submission.

But the process doesn’t end there. Once an article is edited and in layout form, it is sent to our Editor in Chief Thomas G. Wilson Jr., DDS, and Publisher Lorene Kent, RDH, BA, for review and comment. By the time you read a Decisions article, it has been read and reviewed by at least five or more oral healthcare professionals.

So, the next time you pick up a dental publication aimed at a clinical audience, we encourage you to examine the process it uses to ensure the content is evidence-based, accurate, unbiased and trustworthy.
