The aim of this Journal in the Implant Dentistry field is to publish high quality contemporary, timely, innovative, interesting and clinically relevant information that will be used for improvement of the care of our patients. The rapid growth of research and more application of advanced clinical procedures has led us to start this new journey, that we hope will be a journey of success. The objective of all the people involved in this project will be to present the data in an accurate, fair and unbiased way. Each paper will be given the close attention that it merits and only manuscripts with well designed projects, conducted in a manner that follows sound scientific principles will be accepted. Also the rapidity of the reviewing process will be a key goal, this will be ensured by a web based submission and colse supervision on the reviewing process. A concerted effort will be made to shorten the time between submission, correction, acceptance of the manuscript, online publication, and print publication. We aim also for a high standard of technical editing, which serves to ensure the consistency of the content style and the fact that the language should be as unambiguous and clear as possible. Manuscripts dealing with basic research, biomaterials, tissue engineering techniques, clinical research and technical innovations will be accepted. The help of all involved people will be of outstanding relevance in achieving this mission.
