Rules are valid from January 1, 2021

Specifics of the procedure for sending contributions in the categories of “systematic reviews” and “meta-analyses”

Contributions in these categories must be written according to current PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) rules. If these rules are not complied with, the article will not be accepted by the Ortodoncie journal. We recommend that authors consult a simplified form of the rules adjusted for the discipline of orthodontics, such as:

A simplified procedure (PRISMA flow diagram) and the necessary parameters (PRISMA checklist) are also available here:

Specifics of the procedure for sending contributions in the category of “Randomised clinical trials”

Randomised clinical studies must adhere to CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) rules. If these rules are not complied with, the article will not be accepted for publication. We recommend that authors consult a simplified version of these rules, e.g.

Specifics of the procedure for sending contributions in the category of “Case histories”

The Ortodoncie journal publishes case histories that are of interest to the discipline. The cases should be novel and interesting, and provide lessons for clinical practice. Submissions in this category may take various forms; but the technical parameters described above – in particular, the quality and descriptions of photographs and picture documentation – must be adhered to. If the nature of the report allows, we recommend that the case histories take the following structure:

  • Introduction: succinctly describe the essence of the issue in the case studied and briefly note available literature on the topic.
  • Diagnosis and aetiology: summarise the diagnostic findings for the patient, focusing on abnormal parameters and factors. Provide a brief case history. Cephalometric analysis should be included with X-ray images. A brief aetiology of the problem may also be given.
  • Treatment plan: describe the established treatment plan including the expected outcomes of the treatment for the patient. Note alternative treatments if available, including a description of the advantages and disadvantages of the various treatment plans.
  • Treatment: describe the course of treatment. Include the main treatment procedures – not everything needs to be documented. The documentation of the treatment must include timing details, and the apparatus or mechanics used.
  • Treatment outcomes: these should correspond to the planned outcomes. A description of undesirable effects and risks that may arise during the treatment should be included.
  • Discussion: this is the most important part of a case-history article. It should describe why this case is unique and suitable for publication, and offer an overview of similar, already published, cases.
  • Summary and conclusion: provide a brief summary of the results and the merit of the procedure
  • References

The evaluation of the merits of case-history contributions and the reasons for their acceptance for publication can be divided into the categories listed below. It is up to the authors to consider whether their contributions qualify; the final decision is up to the editors. Case-history articles are peer-reviewed.

  • Uniqueness of the case
  • Completeness of the documentation (images, X-rays, etc.) including the timespan of the case
  • Quality of the documentation
  • Completeness of description of the treatment plan established and adherence to it
  • Compliance with rules for submitting manuscripts (as listed above)
