It was recently announced that the Australian Dental Journal, the Australian Dental Association’s flagship academic publication, has substantially increased its ranking among the 90 journals in the Dentistry Oral Surgery and Medicine category, in which it is included.
Previously ranked at 47 in 2015, it now sits at 36, a rise of 11 places in just two years, a reflection of the growing international influence and academic credibility that the journal—and by extension Australian dentistry and the ADA—enjoys.
The ranking is drawn from what is known as an ‘impact score’ which is an international measure of the frequency that the average article in a journal has been cited in a year. The Australian Dental Journal’s impact score rose from 1.272 in 2015 to 1.643 in 2016. The higher the score, the greater the level of influence within a particular journal’s specific category and field.
Released on a quarterly basis in March, June, September and December each year and distributed to members as well as domestic and international subscribers, the Australian Dental Journal publishes papers on research, clinical developments, clinical opinions and treatments and other key issues relevant to the practice of dentistry in Australia.
