European Oral Research (formerly The Journal of Istanbul University Faculty of Dentistry) is the official peer-reviewed scientific publication of the Istanbul University Faculty of Dentistry. It is a continuously updated, international open access title that publishes scholarly articles written in English. Since 1967, our journal is dedicated to the unlimited circulation of high quality academic contributions relevant to the dental profession.

Authors are encouraged to submit their original work related to all disciplines of dentistry, with prime focus being on the clinical or experimental research studies. Case reports, either in form of single case or case series, are also welcome provided that they describe unusual presentation of a rare entity or a different treatment approach. Review articles will be considered if they deal with controversial topics and provide a clear synthesis of previously published data.

European Oral Research does not charge authors or authors’ institutions for submitting, processing or publication of articles. There is no fee for extra pages or color images.

European Oral Research has been accepted to PUBMED Central. Full texts of all articles published from 2015 onwards (Year:2015 Volume:49, Issue 1) are freely available to read or download in both HTML and pdf formats.

European Oral Research has been accepted to the Clarivate Analytics's Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). All articles, starting from the second issue of 2017 (Year:2017 Volume:51, Issue:2) onwards will be indexed and abstracted by ESCI.
