  1. INTRODUCTION:

    International Journal of Interdisciplinary Dentistry-IJoID (http://www.ijoid.cl/) is the continuation of the Clinical Journal of Periodontology, Implantology and Oral Rehabilitation, which has been published continuously since 2008. It is a peer-reviewed journal of Dentistry. It is currently the organ of scientific expression of the Scientific Societies of Periodontology, Oral Implantology, Prosthodontics, and Oral Rehabilitation, Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics of Chile, in addition to the Ibero-Pan American Federation of Periodontology and the Latin American Association of Oral Rehabilitation ((AILARO). It is published with three regular issues per year.   
      
    International Journal of Interdisciplinary Dentistry-IJoID publishes scientific and practical articles on Periodontics, Osseointegration, Implantology, Prosthodontics, Oral Rehabilitation, Pediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics, and directly related specialties. The Journal is included in SciELO, Redalyc, Latindex, and Sociedad Iberoamericana de Información Científica.   
      
    Authors could submit articles in Spanish and English. When the report is presented in Spanish, it must include title, abstract, and keywords in English; when it is in English, the author must attach a letter or certificate indicating the responsibility for reviewing the article in that language. If the manuscript is in English, it should NOT include an abstract, title, or Spanish keywords.  
      
    IJOID adheres to international publication standards that regulate the ethical aspects of publications and/or are nowadays guidelines for publication in most biomedical journals. Primarily, it adheres to the "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals" promoted and periodically updated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) known as the "Vancouver Standards." We recommend that manuscripts submitted should be guided by the standards recommended by the international initiative known as The EQUATOR Network (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research). We recommend that you select and read what these standards stipulate before submitting your manuscript to us.  
      
    All manuscripts are subject to peer review by reviewers outside the Editorial Board of the Journal, which conducts a single-blind review of the articles.   

  2. ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITIES: IJoID adheres to the ethical guidelines for research and publication described below:   

    2.1. Authorship and Acknowledgments: all authors of a manuscript must agree to submit the document to the Journal.
    IJoID adheres to the definition of authorship created by the International Committee of Medical Editors (ICMJE). According to ICMJE, the criteria for authorship must be based on 1) substantial contributions to the conception and design or acquisition of data or analysis and interpretation of data, 2) drafting of the article or critical review of its important intellectual content, and 3) approval of the version to be published. Authors must comply with all conditions.
    All authors and co-authors should be credited in submitting the manuscript (including their email address); those who do not qualify as authors should be mentioned in the acknowledgments. Acknowledgments should specify the contributors to the article other than the credited authors.

    2.2. Ethical approvals: Research involving human participants, human material, or human. data must have been conducted by the Declaration of Helsinki and approved by an appropriate ethics committee. A statement detailing this, including the name of the ethics committee and reference number, if applicable, should appear in all manuscripts reporting such research. If a study has been exempted from requiring ethics approval, this should also be detailed in the document (including the ethics committee's name granted the exemption). Further information and supporting documentation should be made available to the Editor upon request. Manuscripts may be rejected if the Editor considers that the research has not been conducted within an appropriate ethical framework. In exceptional cases, the Editor may contact the Ethics Committee for further information. 

    2.3. 2.3. Consent to Participate: When research involving humans, informed consent to participate in the study must be obtained (or from their parents or legal guardians in the case of those under 16 years of age), and a statement to that effect must be included in the manuscript. In the case of manuscripts reporting studies involving vulnerable groups (e.g., unconscious patients), where there is the possibility that the study may be conducted in an unconscious patient, a statement to that effect should be included in the manuscript.

    2.4. 2.4. Sex and Gender in Research (SAGER): We expect our authors to follow the "Guidelines on Sex andGender Equity in Research (SAGER)" and to include sex and gender considerations when relevant. Authors should use the terms sex (biological attribute) and gender (shaped by social and cultural circumstances) to avoid confusing the two terms. Article titles and abstracts should indicate to which sex or sexes the study applies. Authors should also describe in the background whether sex and/or gender differences are to be expected; report how sex and/or gender have been taken into account in the study design; provide data disaggregated by sex and/or gender, where appropriate; and discuss the individual results. If an analysis by sex and/or gender has not been performed, the rationale should be stated in the Discussion. We suggest that authors consult the complete guidelines before submission.  

    2.5. Animal research: Experimental research involving animals must comply with institutional, national, or international standards and, if applicable, must have been approved by an appropriate ethics committee. The Basel Declaration outlines the fundamental principles to be followed when conducting animal research, and the International Council for Laboratory Animal Science (ICLAS) has also published ethical guidelines. The minutes of approval by the appropriate committee should be included in the manuscript. If a study has been granted an exemption from requiring ethics approval, this should also be detailed in the document (including the name of the ethics committee that granted the exemption and the reasons for the exemption). The Editor will consider animal welfare issues and reserves the right to reject a manuscript, mainly if the research includes protocols that do not conform to commonly accepted standards of animal research.

    2.6. Normas de publicación: IJoID encourages complete and transparent reporting of dental research. Please refer to the checklist of minimum reporting standards when reporting your research. We request recommend that authors consult the minimum reporting guidelines for dental research found on the EQUATOR Network when preparing their manuscript and FAIRsharing.org for reporting checklists for biological and biomedical research, where applicable. Authors should follow these guidelines when writing their documents, and reviewers will be asked to refer to these checklists when evaluating such studies.
    Lists exist for several study designs, including:  

    • Randomized controlled trials (CONSORT) and clinical trial protocols (SPIRIT).  
    • Evidence Synthesis (including: Systematic Reviews (PRISMA),Comprehensive Syntheses (Overviews or  
      Umbrella, Mapping and Scoping Reviews among others) and their corresponding protocols (PRISMA-P)    
    • Observational studies (STROBE
    • Clinical Cases (CARE)   
    • Qualitative research (COREQ)   
    • Diagnostic/prognostic studies (STARD and TRIPOD
    • Economic evaluations (CHEERS
    • Clinical Practice Guidelines (AGREE and RIGHT)   
    • Preclinical animal studies (ARRIVE
    • Publication guidelines for other study designs can be found in the EQUATOR NETWORK

    2.7. Statistical methods: Authors should include complete information on the statistical methods and measures used in their research, including the justification for the statistical test's appropriateness (see SAMPL guidelines). Reviewers will be asked to check the statistical methods, and the manuscript may be sent for expert statistical review if deemed necessary. 

    2.8. Synthesis of evidence: This section publishes: systematic reviews that should be written following the PRISMA guideline, and the checklist should be included in Supplemental File for Review as submission material. Besides, the Systematic Review must have a registration number in one of the sites that register systematic review protocols (PROSPERO, OSFHOME). Other synthesis formats including, mapping reviews, umbrella reviews, scoping reviews whose protocols must be enrolled in PROSPERO, OSFHOME. Mapping reviews adhere to the Global Evidence Mapping Initiative (GEM) methods incorporating the quality of supporting evidence. Umbrella reviews (overviews) must follow PRIOR standards and scoping reviews must follow JBI standards whose protocol must be registered with PROSPERO.

    2.9. Structured Summaries of Evidence: In this section structured summaries of evidence are published, such as CAT (Critically Appraised Topics), POEM (patient-oriented Evidence that Matters) and FRISBEE (FRIendly Summary of the Body of Evidence using Epistemonikos), among others.

    2.10. Clinical Trials: Clinical trials should be reported using the CONSORT guidelines. The CONSORT checklist should also be included in the submission material in Supplemental File for Review. The clinical trial must also have a registration number in one of the clinical trial protocol registration sites associated with the WHO International Registration Platform (http://www.who.int/ictrp/es)  

    2.11. Observational studies: observational studies (cohort, case-control, cross-sectional) should be written according to the STROBE guideline. The STROBE checklist should be included in the presentation as a document.

    2.12. Clinical cases: The clinical case presentation should follow the CARE guideline and be included in the Supplemental File for Review.

    2.13. DNA sequences and crystallographic structure determinations: papers without a Genbank or Brookhaven number, respectively, will not be accepted in documents that include information on DNA sequences and crystallographic structure determination. Standardized gene nomenclature should be used throughout. Human genes' symbols and names can be found in the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) database.

    2.14. Conflict of interest and source of funding: authors must declare the origin of any financial support received. A conflict of interest exists when the author (and/or co-authors) had or have economic or personal relationships that could have biased or inappropriately influenced their actions. In this case, it should be indicated when the relationship (direct or indirect) is related to the work that the authors describe in their manuscript. Potential sources of conflicts of interest may be: ownership of a patent or stock, being a member of the board of directors of a company related to the research, being a member of an advisory board or consulting committee of a company, and the receipt of fees from a company involved in the study. The existence of a conflict of interest does not prevent the publication of the article in the Journal. The corresponding author's responsibility is that all authors of the manuscript complete the conflict-of-interest form and include it at the time of submission of the document. The conflict-of-interest statement should be included in the "Acknowledgements" section.

    2.15. The appeal of decision: in exceptional circumstances, authors may appeal the editorial decision by emailing the Editor (contacto@ijidd.cl) with a detailed explanation of why they are demanding the Editor's decision.
    It is important to note that all revisions and resubmission of articles must include a letter of response, and the manuscript should highlight the changes made to assist the reviewers.

    2.16. Permissions: Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to partially reproduce material (text, tables, or figures) from other publications. These permissions should be requested both from the author and from the publishing house that published the material and the institution that has financed the research and should be attached to the manuscript submission. Also, authors should include a statement that the article's content is original and has not been previously published or submitted or submitted for consideration to any other publication, either in whole or in part. Failure to disclose this information constitutes a serious breach of scientific ethics.

  3. MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION: Manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the online submission site http://www.IJoID.cl/. The use of an online submission and peer review site allows for immediate distribution of manuscripts and expedites the review process. It also allows authors to track the status of their manuscripts. Complete submission instructions are available on the site.
    It is important to note that all revisions and resubmissions must include a response letter, and the manuscript should highlight the changes made as an aid to the reviewers.   
  4. 3.1. Manuscript files: Manuscripts must be uploaded as a non-writing protected Word (.doc) file. The text file should contain the entire manuscript, including title page, abstract (English and Spanish), keywords (English and Spanish), clinical reference, main text, references, acknowledgments, statement of funding source and any possible conflict of interest, tables, and figure legends, but no embedded figures. In the text, any figure should be referred to as "figure 2", "Figure 2," and individual files should be uploaded with the same name. Figure files should be uploaded separately from the main text. While GIF, JPG, PICT, or bitmap files are acceptable for submission, only high-resolution TIF or EPS files are suitable for printing. Manuscripts should be formatted as described in the following guidelines. Ensure that all elements (figures and tables) are cited in the main text.

    Investigators are requested to follow the SPIRIT (Standard Protocol Items for Randomized Trials) recommendations when writing their protocols and to include a completed SPIRIT checklist with the trial protocol submission.  
    PRISMA-P (Preferred reporting items for systematic review and meta-analysis protocols) is a new reporting guideline. An article outlining the checklist for the guideline has already been published. This checklist contains 17 essential and minimum components of a systematic review or meta-analysis protocol. Authors and evaluators of systematic reviews are encouraged to use PRISMA-P when writing and evaluating review protocols. Authors should include a completed PRISMA-P checklist with their protocol submission.  
    IJOID will consider publishing protocols for any study design, including observational studies and systematic reviews. Authors are encouraged to register research. Prospective registration is mandatory for any clinical trial.
    In addition to complying with formatting standards, editorial guidelines, licensing forms, and patient consent (when applicable to the study designs), protocols should include, at a minimum, the following elements:

    • Manuscripts of protocols on planned or ongoing studies. Manuscripts reporting work already completed will not be considered protocols. The dates of the study should be included in the manuscript and in the cover letter. 
    • Protocols for studies requiring ethical approval, such as trials, will probably not be considered without authorization. 
    • Title: should include the specific type of study, e.g., randomized controlled trial. 
    • Abstract: should be structured with the following sections. Introduction; Methods and analysis; Ethics and dissemination. Registration data should be included as a final section, if applicable. 
    • Include a "Strengths and limitations" section after the abstract. This section should have no more than five bullet points related to the methods, not the results of the study. It will be published as an abstract box after the abstract in the final published article. 
    • Introduction: explain the rationale for the study and what evidence gap it can fill. Relevant previous literature, including relevant systematic reviews, should be cited. 
    • Methods and analysis: provide a full description of the study design, including the following. How the sample will be selected; the interventions to be measured; the sample size calculation (based on previous literature) with an estimate of how many participants will be needed for the primary outcome to be statistically, clinically and/or politically significant; what outcomes will be measured, when and how; a plan for data analysis. 
    • Ethics and dissemination: ethical and safety considerations should be included here, as well as any plans for dissemination (publications, data repository and preservation). 
    • Complete references. 
    • Authors' contributions: indicate how each author wrote the protocol. 
    • Funding statement: preferably worded as follows: "This work has been funded by [name of funder] under grant number [xxx]" or "This research has not received any specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or non-profit sectors."

    5.9. Tablas, figuras y leyendas de la figura:

    1. Tables: Units of measurement should be included in the column heading. They should be indicated correlatively in the text with Arabic numerals (for example, table 1). They should be double-spaced, without vertical resolutions, on separate pages and include: (a) table numbering with Arabic numerals; (b) corresponding statement-title; (c) at the bottom of each table, the abbreviations used shall be described in alphabetical order. An explanatory footnote should always accompany the abbreviations and abbreviations. If a table occupies more than one page, the headings should be repeated on the following page. The Journal will admit tables that occupy up to a maximum of one printed page of the Journal. They must complement, not duplicate, the text.  
    2. Figures: they may be photographs or graphics and should be planned for 1 column width (8.0 cm), 1.5 column widths (13.0 cm), or 2 column widths (17.0 cm) and should be adequate for photocopy reproduction of the printed version of the manuscript. They should be uploaded separately from the text. They should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals (e.g., fig. 1). In case a figure is composed of more than one image (maximum 6 images), these will be identified in the text with the number and a lowercase letter (e.g., fig. 1a, fig. 1b). The letters in the figures should be in lowercase type, with the first letter capitalized. Units should have a single space between the number and the unit and follow SI nomenclature or the nomenclature common to a particular field. Thousands should be separated by a space (1 000). Unusual units or abbreviations should be spelled out in full or defined in the legend.   
      Figures should be in bmp, jpg, or tiff format, minimum 300 dots per inch (dpi), and minimum size of 8 cm. Word and MS PowerPoint graphics are not recommended for printed images. For scanned images, the scanning resolution to ensure good reproduction should be: lineart: >600 dpi; tones (including gel photographs): >300 dpi figures containing halftone and line images: >600 dpi. 
      Permissions: If all or parts of published illustrations are used, permission must be obtained from the copyright holder and the publisher who has published the material. It is the author's responsibility to obtain these in writing and provide copies to the publishers. 
      If photographs or patient data are reproduced, they should not be subject-identifying. In all cases, the authors must have obtained the patient's informed consent/assent authorizing its publication, reproduction, and dissemination on paper and the Internet in IJOID. Identification of the patients should be avoided. If this is not possible, written informed consent/assent must be obtained.  
    3. Figure legends: should be a separate section of the manuscript and should begin with a brief title for the entire figure and continue with a short description of each image and symbols used; they should not contain any indication of methods. The font type should be Helvetica or Sans Serif, size 10. Histological reproductions should specify the staining used and the magnification.  

    5.10. Supplementary material: Supplementary material is considered to be the set of data or more figures or tables that will not be published in the printed edition of the Journal but will be visible in the online edition and should be uploaded as "Supporting information for online review and publication only."        

  1. AFTER ACCEPTANCE: After accepting a paper for publication, the manuscript will be sent to the Journal for production.  
  2. 6.1. Prueba de correcciones: the author will receive an email alert containing a website link. The proof can be downloaded as a PDF file from this site (will require Acrobat Reader, can be downloaded free of charge from the site http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html). Proofs must be returned to the Editor within 3 days of receipt. Corrections are allowed only in typography; in the case of images, tables, and/or graphics, they may be modified only if the proofs are not clear.

    6.2. 6.2. Publish before printing: the articles, before their printed publication, in full text are published online, once the DOI (Digital Object Identifier), assigned by ScIELO Chile, has been obtained (for more information, see http://www.doi.org/faq.html)

  1. POLICY FOR HANDLING RETRACTIONS, WITHDRAWALS, AND EXPRESSIONS OF CONCERN.
  2. 8.1. Retractaciones
    The journal is committed to maintaining the integrity of publications. It is committed to playing its part in preserving the integrity of the scholarly record, so it may occasionally be necessary to retract articles. For example, reports may be retracted if: 
    There is a significant scientific error that invalidates the conclusions of the article. (Misconduct or an honest mistake).
    When the results have been previously published elsewhere without proper cross-referencing, permission, or justification.  
    When there are ethical problems such as plagiarism.  
    When unethical research has been reported. 

    8.2. Retraction Process
    To ensure that retractions are handled following industry best practices and COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics ) guidelines, the journal adopts the following retraction process: 
    An article requiring a potential retraction is brought to the journal editor's attention. 
    The journal editor must follow the step-by-step guidelines according to the COPE flowcharts (including evaluating a response from the article's author in question). 
    This step aims to ensure a consistent approach under industry best practices. 
    The final decision on retraction is communicated to the author and, if necessary, to any other relevant body, such as the author's institution, on occasion. 
    The retraction statement is posted online and published in the next available issue of the journal.

    8.3. Complaint Procedure
    To challenge a retraction or related matter, the procedure is as follows: 
    The complaint must be submitted through the Editor. 
    An independent investigation is then conducted. The analysis involves reviewing all correspondence relating to the case in question and, if necessary, obtaining further written responses to questions from the parties involved. The objective of the investigation is to establish that correct procedures have been followed, decisions have been made based on academic criteria, that personal bias or prejudice of any kind has not influenced the outcome, and that appropriate sanctions have been applied where applicable. 
    The investigative panel will submit its findings to the Editor before communicating them to the appropriate parties. 
    Complainants may submit their complaint to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

    8.4. Process for Issuing a Retraction Statement
    When the decision is made to retract and the article to be retracted is the version of the record (i.e., it has been published in Early View or within an issue of a journal), a retraction statement will be issued and published separately. Still, it should be linked to the article being retracted. A "retracted" watermark will also be added; however, the article as first published will be retained online to maintain the scientific record

    8.5. Circumstances in which an article may be removed
    When an accepted article (representing an early version of an article) must be withdrawn because, for example, it contains errors, has been accidentally submitted twice, or violates some professional code of ethics, it may be removed.  
    Bibliographic information about the removed article should be retained for the scientific record, and an explanation, however brief, should be given about the circumstances of its removal.
