The T. M. Graber Outstanding Article Award was established to recognize JWFO authors who make significant contributions to the field of orthodontics by publishing the results of their work in the JWFO. It is named in honor of Dr. T. M. Graber, who was the first editor of the WFO’s first official journal, the World Journal of Orthodontics (WJO), in recognition of his life-long contributions to the profession of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics through his endeavors in academics, research, his extensive scientific and clinical publications and his responsibilities as editor.
Dr. Vinod Krishnan, the Editor-in-Chief of the JWFO, stated that the recipient article for this prestigious award instituted by WFO is selected through a rigorous three-step process and considers all the research articles as well as case series published in the preceding year. This aims at mainly recognizing the researchers who demonstrate exceptional skills in communicating their scientific findings to the public, going above and beyond the publication of their academic advances and to encourage and promote high-quality research in the field of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and allied sciences.
