The Journal of the World Federation of Orthodontists (JWFO) was recently accepted for indexing in MEDLINE/PUBMED, beginning volume 9/issue 1 (March 2020).
This recognition elevates the journal one step higher globally, while helping its authors increase the visibility of their publications. The MEDLINE review committee viewed the journal very favourably and commented "Article quality is generally high, as are production standards. The journal is an important global outlet for the international orthodontic community".
The JWFO now expects more high-quality submissions as authors all over the world look at MEDLINE indexing as a benchmark for journal quality.
The JWFO was recently included in the list of journals of Council of Scientific editors and is also progressing in its citescore. Last year the citescore was 0.4 and it has now reached 0.7. The aim is to reach 1.0 by the end of 2020 and to acquire an impact factor.
JWFO is bringing out a special issue commemorating the 9th IOC. This will be numbered as 9/3(S) and with contributions (11) from experts in the field, this will be an issue comprised of narrative reviews covering all the latest and advancements in the field of orthodontics. The planned release date for this issue online is October 1, 2020.
