Overview

The International Journal of Maxillofacial Prosthetics (iJMP) is a peer-reviewed open access journal that aims to bridge the gaps in various aspects of maxillofacial prosthetics and its related fields. iJMP was founded by a group of maxillofacial prosthetic specialists in late 2016. Its online ISSN is 2432-3993 and was registered in Tokyo, Japan. The founders felt the need to start a journal that is both open to all and free of any form of publisher control. The ISSN registrant was Dr. Mahmoud Elbashti (iJMP’s editor-in-chief) and he is by default the publisher at the moment. The journal majors in publishing original research and studies in the area of maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation associated with the treatment of functional disorders and aesthetics deformities caused by congenital and acquired defects.

Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Maxillofacial Prosthetics aims to quench the thirst of readers in the various aspects of maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation and its related fields. It also aims to be the most prestigious journal of maxillofacial prosthetic research within all aspects of maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation. It hopes to cover all diagnostic, clinical and technical management aspects of head and neck region by using subjective and objective techniques that deliver harmonious maxillofacial function and aesthetics.

The journal publishes four different types of articles- 1) Original research articles of high scientific merit in the field of visualization, designing, fabrication, and evaluation of maxillofacial prosthetics including mechanical and biologic aspects of materials and implants; 2) Review articles by experts on controversies and new developments in maxillofacial prosthetics; 3) Case reports which provide or document new fundamental knowledge; 4) Techniques that introduce new clinical or technical operation method, research method and material usage. In addition to the above mentioned articles, letters to the editor and commenting on papers are welcomed.

The most-targeted topics:

  • Maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation
  • Digitized maxillofacial prosthetics
  • Maxillofacial Implantology
  • Maxillofacial prosthetic materials
  • Maxillofacial prosthetic-related biosciences
  • Maxillofacial physiology and biomechanics

Source of Revenue

The journal’s business model is based on collecting publication fees from authors (after the final acceptance). The collected fees are used to cover the costs of managing the peer-review process, article production and other payments required for the publication process (e.g. webhosting, DOI assignment, etc.).
