Avicenna Journal of Dental Research (AJDR) aims at publishing semiannual, peer reviewed original research and topical reviews on all aspects of investigative and clinical dentistry and craniofacial research, including molecular studies related to oral health and disease. Although, the editors especially encourage international papers. The journal also aims at providing clinicians, scientists and students of dentistry with a knowledge transfer platform for rapid publication of reports through an international journal, which will be available free online until 2008.
Its scope, therefore, is broad, inclusive and international, but with an  international outlook .
