In January 2012 Nature Publishing Group (NPG)
and the West China School of Stomatology, Sichuan University (WCSS), will begin their partnership by co-publishing the International Journal of Oral Science (IJOS).
IJOS has rapidly gained respect from oral sciences researchers and practitioners and has been accepted into both PubMed and the Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge and Journal Citation Reports databases. The journal aims to publish the highest quality articles in oral sciences from around the world.
IJOS is an open access international journal devoted to research on oral science. The journal joins NPG’s stable of highly respected journals including Nature, Nature Medicine, British Dental Journal, Vital and many more. NPG’s excellence in publishing will ensure that all research published will receive high exposure through online hosting on nature.com, extensive press coverage and rapid publication.
The editorial team
is led by the internationally renowned Professor Zhou Xue-dong and Professor Wang Cun-yu as co-Editors-in-Chief. A highly respected editorial board
of oral science researchers from across the globe will be working with the editorial team of IJOS and with NPG to further define and shape the field of the oral sciences.
