'You can do the best research and be making the strongest intellectual argument, but if readers don't get past the third paragraph you've wasted your energy and valuable ink.'
Keeping in view the above quote, the proposed Society of Periodontal Medicine and Clinical Practice is proud to announce its first of a kind international peer-reviewed online research journal – Journal of Periodontal Medicine and Clinical Practice (JPMCP) which aims to cover worldwide research related to Periodontal Medicine and Oral Medicine as strategic priority along with focus on Clinical Periodontics and Oral Implantology. The journal's full text is available online at http://www.jpmcp.com. The journal allows free access (Open Access) to its contents and permits authors to self-archive final accepted version of the articles on any OAI-compliant institutional / subject-based repository. The Editorial board will strive for the quality of the journal and all information will be updated on the journal website from time to time. We welcome all your submissions. I hope you will consider JPMCP for your next submission.
It gives me great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the Journal of Periodontal Medicine and Clinical Practice (JPMCP). It is my expectation this journal will give our field an academic voice and a venue for discourse that will move us forward clinically and intellectually all around the globe. Ultimately, as any medical endeavor must begin and end with the interests of our patients in mind, I believe Journal of Periodontal Medicine and Clinical Practice (JPMCP) will play a role in improving the diagnosis and treatment planning of cases related to periodontal medicine, oral medicine, clinical periodontics and oral implantology. The Journal of Periodontal Medicine and Clinical Practice (JPMCP) is, therefore, the ideal venue for the discussion of quality, safety, systems, and metrics in our field. In this way, we hope to fill an important clinical and academic niche. As such we encourage submission of clinically oriented original research focused on the wide range of conditions encountered in the hospital and clinics associated with scope of our journal. Clinical trials and comparative effectiveness studies are especially welcome. Our journal will also provide up-to-date reviews and discussions of challenging cases. I hope you find these reviews and case discussions educational and entertaining. In the future, we hope to offer the chance to earn continuing dental education credits by reading these articles. It will be exciting to see how the journal responds to the many opportunities and challenges it will face over the next decade. There is no doubt the journey will be interesting. I hope you find Journal of Periodontal Medicine and Clinical Practice (JPMCP) a welcome companion along the way. I would like to express my gratitude and thankfulness to those who have supported this upcoming journal and to those who are going to be with me in our journey of bringing the journal to another height.
