Academy of Dental Education takes pride in announcing the publication of the first volume of the Journal of Academy of Dental Education (JADE).
JADE is unique in thought and process as it is the only Undergraduate Dental Student’s Journal in our country. This Journal provides an opportunity for Dental Students to step into an important arena of scientific writing which is of great importance for professional self development. JADE is a compilation of high quality peer reviewed research articles, reviews and case reports from all disciplines of dental sciences presented by young budding professionals. The outstanding papers are submitted by undergraduate students who have been involved in faculty-mentored research, scholarly, and creative activities.
JADE has an objective of enhancing and enriching the skill sets of the undergraduate dental students by providing a window to critical thinking, scientific publication and team-working skills. Publication of research by young scholars will have a direct and positive effect on both the students self esteem and scientific standing while concurrently placing India on the global map with footprints of dental undergraduate students scientific and research contributions.
