  1. Informed consent and human and animal rights 

Activities of Actual problems in dentistry are based on the WMA Declaration of Helsinki - Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects and the journal team strives for complying with ethical norms and rules of data collection for research involving human subjects.

Medical research involving human subjects must conform to generally accepted scientific principles, be based on a thorough knowledge of the scientific literature, other relevant sources of information, and adequately conducted laboratory reports along with studies in animals where applicable.  The welfare of animals used for research must be respected.

Before starting any research the researcher should familiarize him/herself with the informed consent provisions of the WMA Declaration of Helsinki and perform the research in the strict compliance with the principles presented below (Items 25-31 of the WMA Declaration of Helsinki):

  1. Participation by individuals capable of giving informed consent as subjects in medical research must be voluntary. Although it may be appropriate to consult family members or community leaders, no individual capable of giving informed consent may be enrolled in a research study unless he or she freely agrees.
  2. In medical research involving human subjects capable of giving informed consent, each potential subject must be adequately informed of the aims, methods, sources of funding, any possible conflicts of interest, institutional affiliations of the researcher, the anticipated benefits and potential risks of the study and the discomfort it may entail, post-study provisions and any other relevant aspects of the study. The potential subject must be informed of the right to refuse to participate in the study or to withdraw consent to participate at any time without reprisal.  Special attention should be given to the specific information needs of individual potential subjects as well as to the methods used to deliver the information.

After ensuring that the potential subject has understood the information, the physician or another appropriately qualified individual must then seek the potential subject’s freely-given informed consent, preferably in writing.  If the consent cannot be expressed in writing, the non-written consent must be formally documented and witnessed.

All medical research subjects should be given the option of being informed about the general outcome and results of the study.

  1. When seeking informed consent for participation in a research study the physician must be particularly cautious if the potential subject is in a dependent relationship with the physician or may consent under duress. In such situations, the informed consent must be sought by an appropriately qualified individual who is completely independent of this relationship.
  2. For a potential research subject who is incapable of giving informed consent, the physician must seek informed consent from the legally authorized representative.  These individuals must not be included in a research study that has no likelihood of benefit for them unless it is intended to promote the health of the group represented by the potential subject, the research cannot instead be performed with persons capable of providing informed consent, and the research entails only minimal risk and minimal burden.
  3. When a potential research subject who is deemed incapable of giving informed consent is able to give assent to decisions about participation in research, the physician must seek that assent in addition to the consent of the legally authorized representative.  The potential subject’s dissent should be respected.
  4. Research involving subjects who are physically or mentally incapable of giving consent, for example, unconscious patients, may be done only if the physical or mental condition that prevents giving informed consent is a necessary characteristic of the research group. In such circumstances, the physician must seek informed consent from the legally authorized representative.  If no such representative is available and if the research cannot be delayed, the study may proceed without informed consent provided that the specific reasons for involving subjects with a condition that renders them unable to give informed consent have been stated in the research protocol and the study has been approved by a research ethics committee. Consent to remain in the research must be obtained as soon as possible from the subject or a legally authorized representative.
  5. The physician must fully inform the patient which aspects of their care are related to the research.  The refusal of a patient to participate in a study or the patient’s decision to withdraw from the study must never adversely affect the patient-physician relationship.
  6. For medical research using identifiable human material or data, such as research on material or data contained in biobanks or similar repositories, physicians must seek informed consent for its collection, storage and/or reuse.  There may be exceptional situations where consent would be impossible or impracticable to obtain for such research.  In such situations, the research may be done only after consideration and approval of a research ethics committee.

When submitting results of experimental research involving human subjects, the authors should specify if the performed procedures compiled with the code of ethics provided in the WMA Declaration of Helsinki. If the principles of the WMA Declaration of Helsinki were not considered during the research, the authors should justify their approach to the research and guarantee that the ethics committee of the organization where the research was conducted approved of such an approach.

The journal "Problems of Dentistry" publishes in Russian (or English) language works on all sections of dentistry, as well as related sciences. The publication accepts the results of original research, theoretical and overview articles of interest to the scientific community.

The decision to publish is taken by the editorial board of the journal on the basis of expert reviews of reviewers, taking into account the correspondence of the materials of the thematic focus of the journal, their scientific significance and relevance. On changing the status of the application, the author receives a notification by e-mail.

Received manuscript is sent for review to specialists in this field of research. The choice of reviewers remains with the editorial board of the journal. The manuscript, which received negative reviews from two independent reviewers, is rejected by the editorial board's decision. The article, which needs further development, is sent to the authors with the comments of the reviewer and the scientific editor. Authors should take into account all comments made during the review and editing of the article, respond to each of the comments and indicate the place in the manuscript where the changes are made. In case of disagreement with the reviewer or the editor, the author should briefly and clearly substantiate his position.

Peer-Review

A double-blind peer review method is mandatory for processing of all scientific manuscripts submitted to the editorial stuff of Actual problems in dentistry. This implies that neither the reviewer is aware of the authorship of the manuscript, nor the author maintains any contact with the reviewer.

  1. The journal reviews all scientific manuscripts corresponding to the journal subject matter and submitted to the editorial stuff with the aim of giving an expert opinion. Members of the editorial board and editorial council as well as leading Russian and international experts in corresponding areas of life sciences, invited as independent readers, perform peer reviews. All reviewers are acknowledged experts in the subject of reviewed articles and had their work on subject in question published in the last three years. The editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief, science editor, and head of the publishing house choose readers for peer review. We aim to limit the review process to 2-4 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer’s request.
  2. Reviewer has an option to abnegate the assessment should any conflict of interests arise that may affect perception or interpretation of the manuscript. Upon the scrutiny, the reviewer is expected to present the editorial board with one of the following recommendations:
    - to accept the paper in its present state;
    - to invite the author to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before final decision is reached;
    - the final decision to be reached following further reviewing by another specialist;
    - to reject the manuscript outright.
  3. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author either to implement the corrections, or to dispute them reasonably. Authors are kindly required to limit their revision to 2 months after the date of notification and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.
  4. Should the author decide to refuse from publishing the manuscript, they are to notify the editor verbally or in writing. In case the author fails to do so within 3 months since receiving a copy of the initial review, the editorial board takes the manuscript off the register and notifies the author accordingly.
  5. If the author and reviewers meet insoluble contradictions regarding revision of the manuscript, the editorial board has a right to send the manuscript for further examination. In a conflict situation the editor-in-chief resolves it at the editorial board meeting.
  6. The editorial staff sends to the authors of the submitted manuscripts copies of reviews or reasonable refusal. The editorial staff takes on the obligation to give the copies of reviews to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation upon the request. The editorial board reaches the final decision to reject a manuscript on the hearing according to reviewers’ recommendations, and duly notifies the authors of their decision via e-mail. The board does not accept previously rejected manuscripts for re-evaluation.
  7. Upon the decision to accept the manuscript for publishing, the editorial staff notifies the authors of the scheduled date of publication.
  8. Kindly note that positive review does not guarantee the acceptance, as final decision in all cases lies with the editorial board. By his authority, the editor-in-chief rules final solution of every conflict.
  9. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 5 years.

  1. Informed consent and human and animal rights 

Activities of Actual problems in dentistry are based on the WMA Declaration of Helsinki - Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects and the journal team strives for complying with ethical norms and rules of data collection for research involving human subjects.

Medical research involving human subjects must conform to generally accepted scientific principles, be based on a thorough knowledge of the scientific literature, other relevant sources of information, and adequately conducted laboratory reports along with studies in animals where applicable.  The welfare of animals used for research must be respected.

Before starting any research the researcher should familiarize him/herself with the informed consent provisions of the WMA Declaration of Helsinki and perform the research in the strict compliance with the principles presented below (Items 25-31 of the WMA Declaration of Helsinki):

  1. Participation by individuals capable of giving informed consent as subjects in medical research must be voluntary. Although it may be appropriate to consult family members or community leaders, no individual capable of giving informed consent may be enrolled in a research study unless he or she freely agrees.
  2. In medical research involving human subjects capable of giving informed consent, each potential subject must be adequately informed of the aims, methods, sources of funding, any possible conflicts of interest, institutional affiliations of the researcher, the anticipated benefits and potential risks of the study and the discomfort it may entail, post-study provisions and any other relevant aspects of the study. The potential subject must be informed of the right to refuse to participate in the study or to withdraw consent to participate at any time without reprisal.  Special attention should be given to the specific information needs of individual potential subjects as well as to the methods used to deliver the information.

After ensuring that the potential subject has understood the information, the physician or another appropriately qualified individual must then seek the potential subject’s freely-given informed consent, preferably in writing.  If the consent cannot be expressed in writing, the non-written consent must be formally documented and witnessed.

All medical research subjects should be given the option of being informed about the general outcome and results of the study.

  1. When seeking informed consent for participation in a research study the physician must be particularly cautious if the potential subject is in a dependent relationship with the physician or may consent under duress. In such situations, the informed consent must be sought by an appropriately qualified individual who is completely independent of this relationship.
  2. For a potential research subject who is incapable of giving informed consent, the physician must seek informed consent from the legally authorized representative.  These individuals must not be included in a research study that has no likelihood of benefit for them unless it is intended to promote the health of the group represented by the potential subject, the research cannot instead be performed with persons capable of providing informed consent, and the research entails only minimal risk and minimal burden.
  3. When a potential research subject who is deemed incapable of giving informed consent is able to give assent to decisions about participation in research, the physician must seek that assent in addition to the consent of the legally authorized representative.  The potential subject’s dissent should be respected.
  4. Research involving subjects who are physically or mentally incapable of giving consent, for example, unconscious patients, may be done only if the physical or mental condition that prevents giving informed consent is a necessary characteristic of the research group. In such circumstances, the physician must seek informed consent from the legally authorized representative.  If no such representative is available and if the research cannot be delayed, the study may proceed without informed consent provided that the specific reasons for involving subjects with a condition that renders them unable to give informed consent have been stated in the research protocol and the study has been approved by a research ethics committee. Consent to remain in the research must be obtained as soon as possible from the subject or a legally authorized representative.
  5. The physician must fully inform the patient which aspects of their care are related to the research.  The refusal of a patient to participate in a study or the patient’s decision to withdraw from the study must never adversely affect the patient-physician relationship.
  6. For medical research using identifiable human material or data, such as research on material or data contained in biobanks or similar repositories, physicians must seek informed consent for its collection, storage and/or reuse.  There may be exceptional situations where consent would be impossible or impracticable to obtain for such research.  In such situations, the research may be done only after consideration and approval of a research ethics committee.

When submitting results of experimental research involving human subjects, the authors should specify if the performed procedures compiled with the code of ethics provided in the WMA Declaration of Helsinki. If the principles of the WMA Declaration of Helsinki were not considered during the research, the authors should justify their approach to the research and guarantee that the ethics committee of the organization where the research was conducted approved of such an approach.

The journal "Problems of Dentistry" publishes in Russian (or English) language works on all sections of dentistry, as well as related sciences. The publication accepts the results of original research, theoretical and overview articles of interest to the scientific community.

Applications for publication in the magazine are accepted through the site https://dental-press.ru/ru/nauka/. Before you apply, you need to undergo a small registration procedure.

Additional materials (cover letters, etc.) are uploaded in the section "downloading a file" when preparing an application for publication.

The decision to publish is taken by the editorial board of the journal on the basis of expert reviews of reviewers, taking into account the correspondence of the materials of the thematic focus of the journal, their scientific significance and relevance. On changing the status of the application, the author receives a notification by e-mail.

Received manuscript is sent for review to specialists in this field of research. The choice of reviewers remains with the editorial board of the journal. The manuscript, which received negative reviews from two independent reviewers, is rejected by the editorial board's decision. The article, which needs further development, is sent to the authors with the comments of the reviewer and the scientific editor. Authors should take into account all comments made during the review and editing of the article, respond to each of the comments and indicate the place in the manuscript where the changes are made. In case of disagreement with the reviewer or the editor, the author should briefly and clearly substantiate his position. The author's changes in the manuscript must be made in the electronic version of the text and returned to the editorial office. The editors do not provide the authors with a copy of the proof of the article on paper.

Cost of publication: 700 rub. for 1 page of the manuscript issued according to the requirements of the journal.

Peer-Review

A double-blind peer review method is mandatory for processing of all scientific manuscripts submitted to the editorial stuff of Actual problems in dentistry. This implies that neither the reviewer is aware of the authorship of the manuscript, nor the author maintains any contact with the reviewer.

  1. The journal reviews all scientific manuscripts corresponding to the journal subject matter and submitted to the editorial stuff with the aim of giving an expert opinion. Members of the editorial board and editorial council as well as leading Russian and international experts in corresponding areas of life sciences, invited as independent readers, perform peer reviews. All reviewers are acknowledged experts in the subject of reviewed articles and had their work on subject in question published in the last three years. The editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief, science editor, and head of the publishing house choose readers for peer review. We aim to limit the review process to 2-4 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer’s request.
  2. Reviewer has an option to abnegate the assessment should any conflict of interests arise that may affect perception or interpretation of the manuscript. Upon the scrutiny, the reviewer is expected to present the editorial board with one of the following recommendations:
    - to accept the paper in its present state;
    - to invite the author to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before final decision is reached;
    - the final decision to be reached following further reviewing by another specialist;
    - to reject the manuscript outright.
  3. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author either to implement the corrections, or to dispute them reasonably. Authors are kindly required to limit their revision to 2 months after the date of notification and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.
  4. Should the author decide to refuse from publishing the manuscript, they are to notify the editor verbally or in writing. In case the author fails to do so within 3 months since receiving a copy of the initial review, the editorial board takes the manuscript off the register and notifies the author accordingly.
  5. If the author and reviewers meet insoluble contradictions regarding revision of the manuscript, the editorial board has a right to send the manuscript for further examination. In a conflict situation the editor-in-chief resolves it at the editorial board meeting.
  6. The editorial staff sends to the authors of the submitted manuscripts copies of reviews or reasonable refusal. The editorial staff takes on the obligation to give the copies of reviews to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation upon the request. The editorial board reaches the final decision to reject a manuscript on the hearing according to reviewers’ recommendations, and duly notifies the authors of their decision via e-mail. The board does not accept previously rejected manuscripts for re-evaluation.
  7. Upon the decision to accept the manuscript for publishing, the editorial staff notifies the authors of the scheduled date of publication.
  8. Kindly note that positive review does not guarantee the acceptance, as final decision in all cases lies with the editorial board. By his authority, the editor-in-chief rules final solution of every conflict.
  9. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 5 years.
