Nagorniak IV, Al-Makhamid NS. Share of articles in the “dental implants” section among the total number of articles in the journal focused on all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery and 5-year impact factor 1.943: a 3-year longitudinal bibliometric analysis. J Diagn Treat Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2020;4(2):25–37.
Purpose: To analyze the share of articles (total number and percent) in the “Dental Implants” section and the total number of articles during a 3-year period of publishing in the journal which had the highest total
number of dental implant articles in the 1966-2016 period among other journals focused on all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Materials and Methods: Our study included the calculations in the consecutive 36 issues (from January 2017 to December 2019) of the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (JOMS): 1) the total number of
articles and 2) the number of articles in the “Dental Implant” section.
Results: Articles focused on pre-implant and implant surgery continue to stay in the focus of interest of the leading OMS journal reaching 5.43% (2.02 papers per 1 issue) of its total amount of publications. The
mean total number of articles per 1 issue during a 3-year period became 37.33 papers. Despite the fact that the total number of articles in 2018 increased to 452, the number in 2017 and 2019 was mirrored and
totaled 446 articles.
Conclusions: The articles focused on implantology continue to stay in the focus of interest of the leading OMS journal. The very high total number of articles (446) per year in 2017 and 2018 can indicate a very
strong journal`s reputation among authors and submission levels. Also, as the mean of total number of articles per 1 issue is 37.33; it gives a possibility to increase the publishing frequency in two times
(biweekly journal) what can lead to the multiple advantages for the authors, readers, and editorial office.
