Applied Sciences is going to reach a remarkable milestone by publishing its 10th volume, and in celebration of this special occasion, we have taken the initiative to launch a Special Issue called “10th Anniversary of Applied Sciences: Invited Papers in Applied Dentistry Section”.
In 2014, when we received our first impact factor for Applied Sciences, we published 35 manuscripts from 53 submissions, i.e., the acceptance rate was roughly 66%. However, we have now significantly improved our review quality; hence, in 2018, we published 2703 manuscripts from 9757 submissions, keeping the acceptance rate below 28%. This reasonably gave us an impact factor jump from 1.484 in 2014 to 2.217 in 2018. We have also reduced the manuscript turnaround time; presently, the median publication time is only 37 days, which will be further reduced in the coming months if not weeks, and we hope to increase the impact factor to above 3.0 for 2019.
This Special Issue aims to gather moderate-sized original research or review papers featuring important and recent developments or recent progress in Dentistry with a special emphasis on new techniques and their applications. The authors are well-known experts in their domain who are invited to submit their contribution at any moment from now to the end of January 2021. The papers can cover either experimental or clinical aspects or both.
The main topics, though not exclusively, include regenerative dentistry, dental materials, biomaterials, nanotechnologies, implantology, orthodontics, translational research in dentistry, operative dentistry, endodontics, interaction between oral and systemic diseases, oral medicine, and every subject related to Applied Dentistry.
