The International Dental Journal (IDJ) is the main scientific publication of FDI World Dental Federation. It features peer-reviewed, scientific articles relevant to international oral health. The IDJ publishes articles with a focus in three areas: practice-related research, international public health and interprofessional education and practice.

The Journal also publishes concise reviews, which are review papers that synthesize that state of the science on topics of importance to oral health care providers. These reviews are written by experts in their fields, and are invited by the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editors. Topics for concise reviews can also be suggested by potential authors who are acknowledged experts in their field. Interested authors should contact the Editor-in-Chief at

The impact factor for the IDJ has been increasing during the past few years (see table below).
