Aim and Scope
Journal of Korean Academy of Advanced General Dentistry (JKAAGD) is the official publication of the Korean Academy of Advanced General Dentistry. It was first launched in August 2012 (ISSN 2287-559x). As an open access, peer reviewed journal, JKAAGD aims to publish clinical and sci- entific research papers based on evidence-based investiga- tions within all areas of contemporary dental practice. The journal publishes original research articles, review articles, case reports, technical reports, and short communications from the readers in subjects related with comprehensive dentistry
Submitted manuscripts must be written in Korean or English. Manuscripts are subject to peer review process followed by editorial revision. For consideration of publication in JKAAGD, authors should follow the submission guidelines below. By submitting a paper authors agree that the work has not been published before and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.

Manuscripts should be word-processed and submitted by online submission system. The body of the text, not including the abstract, references, tables, or illustrations, should not exceed 15 pages in length for research articles, and 7 pages for clinical articles. Figures and tables should be supplied as separate files. Remove all evidence of authorship from an electronic submission file, in order to expedite the review process. Terms in manuscripts in Korean should be listed in Dental Terminology edited by Korean Academy of Dental Sciences and Korean Dental Association. Manuscripts will normally be reviewed by the editor-inchief and at least two reviewers with expertise within the scope of the article. The final publication decision lies with the Editorial Board. Accepted manuscripts will be copy edited according to the Journal style and returned to the author for approval before publication. Authors are responsible for all statements made in their work, including changes made by the copy editor.
