Review/editing of manuscripts

Each manuscript will be reviewed by the editors-in-chief and at least two independent reviewers with expertise within the scope of the article, in a double blinded fashion, according to the peer-review protocol.

The publisher reserves the right to edit accepted manuscripts to fit the space available and to ensure conciseness, clarity, and stylistic consistency, subject to the author’s final approval.

The Romanian Journal of Dental Research (RJDR)’s policy on the confidentiality of the review process is available here.

Romanian Journal of Dental Research works with Publons  ( to provide reviewers with credit for their work.


Corrected proofs must be returned to the publisher within 2-3 days of receipt. The publisher will do everything possible to ensure prompt publication. It will therefore be appreciated if the manuscripts and figures conform from the outset to the style of the journal.

If, following the peer-review process, the article requires only minor changes (language changes etc.) then the manuscript is accepted for publication in its revised form without further input from the author. In case the changes are considered more important (scientific errors or an incorrect use of the language that can affect the quality of the scientific message) the author will be contacted by a member of the editorial committee and it will only be published after he approves the changes considered necessary by the peer-reviewers. In some cases, based on the written approval of the author(s), the peer-reviewers and the chief-editor or the publisher the article may be published alongside the comments of the reviewer(s).

After publication of the final version article (the article of record), the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.

Once the paper is typeset, the author will receive an email notification with the URL to download a PDF typeset page proof, as well as associated forms and full instructions on how to correct and return the file.
