Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand: An international journal of the science and technology of New Zealand and the Pacific region

Welcoming submissions for an upcoming special issue

Dental Research in New Zealand: Challenges, Progress, and New Technologies

The Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand is calling for papers for a 2020 Special Issue entitled Dental Research in New Zealand: Challenges, Progress, and New Technologies.

The University of Otago is soon to celebrate 150 years as New Zealand’s first university. At the same time, Otago’s Faculty of Dentistry is moving to a new dental building. To help highlight these important milestones, the Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand invites scholars to submit manuscripts for a special issue, dedicated to the Faculty of Dentistry, Te Kaupeka Pūniho.

This special issue invites submissions with a focus on dentistry and advances in oral health and dental science in New Zealand. In order to capture the diverse knowledge and experiences in this field, we encourage submissions across a range of dental research disciplines. We encourage submissions from the wider New Zealand dental research fraternity, including current & past Faculty staff, students, and others with a special interest in New Zealand dental research. We seek a mix of quality manuscripts: these may include original dental research and review manuscripts on key topics of interest.

Papers may involve research in the following topics:

  • Biomechanics
  • Biomaterials
  • Clinical research
  • Craniofacial biology/physiology
  • Dental education
  • Dental epidemiology
  • Public health policy
  • Microbiology
  • Oral immunopathology
  • Oranga Niho

Submission instructions

The anticipated date of publication is March 2020 and the anticipated manuscript submission deadline is 31 July 2019. Please send a preliminary title, list of authors and a short descriptive paragraph outlining the scope of your proposed manuscript by 12 November 2018 to the guest editors Jonathan Broadbent and Carolina Loch at jrsnz.dental@otago.ac.nz.

The guest editors will make a decision on which manuscripts to invite for the Special Issue. Authors will be notified by 21 December 2018. Note that an invitation to submit does not guarantee acceptance for publication; this will depend on the outcome of peer review process and authors meeting critical time schedules. Please direct queries to the Guest Editors at jrsnz.dental@otago.ac.nz or to the Senior Editor Ewan Fordyce FRSNZ.
