Journal of Dental Education

The Journal of Dental Education® (JDE) is a peer-reviewed monthly journal that publishes a wide variety of educational and scientific research in dental, allied dental and advanced dental education. Published continuously by the American Dental Education Association since 1936 and internationally recognized as the premier journal for academic dentistry, the JDE publishes articles on such topics as curriculum reform, education research methods, innovative educational and assessment methodologies, faculty development, community-based dental education, student recruitment and admissions, professional and educational ethics, dental education around the world and systematic reviews of educational interest. The JDE is one of the top scholarly journals publishing the most important work in dental education today.

The JDE is online through HighWire Press. HighWire hosts more than 1,000 other journals, including many related to dentistry, such as the Journal of Dental Research, Journal of Dental Hygiene, Advances in Dental Research, and the Journal of Clinical Periodontology

A significant bonus to being an ADEA member and JDE reader is what’s known as “Inter-Journal Toll-Free Citation Linking.” You may find an article in the JDE and want to pursue the references. If the cited articles are from journals hosted on HighWire, you can read the full text, even if you are not a subscriber, provided you follow citation links from the JDE.

Online access to the Journal of Dental Education is complementary for ADEA members, and is included with print subscriptions. ADEA members can easily add a JDE print subscription to their memberships. (You will be prompted to sign in before you are directed to the order form.)
