  • Aims and scope

    To publish peer-reviewed scientific research on all aspects of fluoride

    Fluoride, Quarterly Journal of the International Society for Fluoride Research Inc., is published four times a year, usually in March, June, September, and December, in both print (ISSN 0015-4725) and online (ISSN 2253-4083) and contains peer- reviewed scientific reports on agricultural, analytical, biochemical, biological, chemical, clinical, dental, ecological, environmental, industrial, medical, metabolic, pharmacological, synergistic, toxicological, and veterinary aspects of inorganic and organic fluorides. The journal does not contain advertising.

    Information for authors

    Fluoride is available free online to individual users, in full text without an embargo period.

    However, the copyright for the articles is held by the ISFR.

    Authors are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, link to the full text, and use them for any other lawful purpose without asking prior permission from the publisher, the ISFR, provided acknowledgement is given that the article was first published in Fluoride.

    No author, institutional, or article processing charges.

    The making of multiple copies of articles by institutions is allowed by Reproduction Rights Organizations (RROs) in many countries including New Zealand (Copyright Licensing New Zealand), Australia (Copyright Agency Limited), Canada (Access Canada), France (Centre Francais d'exploitation), Hong Kong (Hong Kong Reproduction Rights), Ireland (Irish Copyright Licensing Agency), Japan (Japan Academic Association for Copyright Clearance), South Africa (DALRO South Africa), United Kingdom (Copyright Licensing Agency), and the United States of America (Copyright Clearance Center). In return for this assignment of copyright to the ISFR and the accompanying income stream from the RROs, NO AUTHOR, INSTITUTIONAL, OR ARTICLE PROCESSING CHARGES ARE MADE. A printer's quality pdf of articles is available for download on the website and five free offprints of articles are supplied to authors.

    Articles should be written in Word and submitted by E-mail to the nearest Regional Editor. The Regional Editor will arrange for single blind peer review, usually with two reviewers, in which the peer reviewer knows the names of the authors but not vice versa.

    Saving copies in institutional repositories.

    Institutions can preserve a second copy of articles published by their researchers in an institutional repository.

    Scope and focus of Fluoride

    Fluoride publishes peer-reviewed scientific reports on agricultural, analytical, biochemical, biological, chemical, clinical, dental, ecological, environmental, industrial, medical, metabolic, pharmacological, synergistic, toxicological, and veterinary aspects of inorganic and organic fluorides.

    Peer review

    Papers are normally reviewed by two peer reviewers on a single blind basis in which the peer reviewer knows the identity of the authors but not vice versa.

    Submitting manuscripts to Fluoride, editorial policies, policies on conflict of interest, human and animal rights, informed consent, and guidelines for authors revised January-March 2015

    Manuscripts, including reports of original research, papers presented at ISFR conferences, research reviews, discussion papers, and letters to the editor, are accepted for publication after appropriate evaluation and recommendation by qualified reviewers. The initial version of the manuscript, double-spaced throughout with wide margins, should be submitted, as a Word attachment by E-mail, to the nearest Regional Editor. The E-mail addresses for these editors are given below and in the masthead of the Table of Contents on page i of each issue.

    Detailed instructions for preparing papers are available below and in Fluoride 2013;46(1):40-8. These instructions should be followed meticulously to avoid publication delays.

    The Editorial Officers of Fluoride strongly support the maintenance of the highest standards of animal care and the control of discomforts to animals in research. Authors must indicate whether their institutional and national guidelines for the care and use of laboratory animals were followed. When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1964, as revised in 2013, available from here. Fluoride follows the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), and their Recommendations for the conduct, reporting, editing, and publication of scholarly work in medical journals, updated December 2019, are available from here. The recommendations describe author responsibilities for conflicts of interest, human and animal rights, informed consent, and ethical policies.

    The Editorial Officers of Fluoride recommend that authors give attention to the areas of duplicate submission, research fraud including fabrication (making up research data) and falsification (manipulation of existing research data, tables, or images), plagiarism (passing off anothers work or idea as your own), authorship disputes (deliberately misrepresenting a scientists relationship to their work on a published paper), conflict of interest (nondisclosure to the publication that you have a direct or indirect conflict that prevents you from being unbiased in your paper), salami slicing (the slicing of research that would form one meaningful paper into several different papers), and the improper use of humans or animals in research including absent or inadequate informed consent of human subjects, or maltreatment of laboratory animals.

    For observational studies in epidemiology, authors might consider using the guidelines in the STROBE statement available from here

    When, after peer review, an editorial decision to reject a paper is made the paper should not be resubmitted to Fluoride, including to a different regional editor, unless the paper has been revised in accordance with any comments made in the rejection letter. The time spent by editors and peer reviewers in reviewing papers submitted for consideration for publication is highly valued and re-evaluating a rejected paper before it has been revised would result in a wasteful duplication of effort. 

    Data sharing policy

    All the data received on a paper are normally included in the published paper so that it is shared.

    Where to send papers for consideration of publication in Fluoride

    Authors should send papers to the nearest regional editor for their area. The regional editors are:

    Regional Editor for Africa:

    Regional Editor for Eastern Europe:

    Regional Editors for India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, and Sri Lanka:

    Regional Editor for Latin America, including Mexico, Central America, and Cuba:

    Regional Editor for the Middle East:

    Regional Editor for Pakistan and Afghanistan:

    Regional Editors for People's Republic of China
