Elsevier chosen to publish American Dental Association's flagship journal

June 24, 2014

Chicago, IL, and New York, NY, June 24, 2014 -- The American Dental Association (ADA) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Elsevier to publish The Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), the ADA's flagship publication and the nation's premier dental journal.

Published for more than a century and with a monthly circulation today of nearly 150,000, JADA offers a wide range of reliable, peer-reviewed information on dental science, dental practice and dental care. Elsevier will start to publish JADA as of January 1, 2015.

"Elsevier's expertise, resources and global presence will further accelerate JADA's progress and help the journal enhance its position among the world's leading dental journals," said Michael D. Springer, ADA Senior Vice President for Business and Publishing.

Michael Glick, DMD, has served as JADA Editor since 2005. "A publishing relationship with Elsevier will allow JADA to maintain its leading role in guiding and shaping the direction of our profession--furthering dentistry's efforts in the prevention and treatment of oral disease," said Dr. Glick.

JADA has continually advanced the quality and value of information it publishes through print, online and mobile platforms, offering original research, clinical features, case reports and updates on dental products and techniques. The ADA aims to continue to expand the journal's online presence and boost international submissions, enhancing its global reach.

"Elsevier, the ADA, and JADA have a shared goal of serving clinicians and researchers, ultimately striving to improve patient care," commented Anne Kitson, Executive Vice President, Health and Medical Sciences Journals at Elsevier. "This common purpose makes the collaboration particularly powerful. We are very excited and honored to be working with the ADA to further JADA's status as the premier resource in dentistry, and to explore new avenues for collaboration."
