Articles on original, clinical, diagnostic and experimental studies (in vivo and in vitro) offering good scientific exposure, incorporating recent advances and latest techniques would be considered.

A relevant practical and comprehensive compilation of literature pertaining to the present times and concept is a part of requirement of the article. Good comprehensive reviews on relevant topics with highlights on recent advances would be given precedence.

Manifestations of different diseases in orofacial regions with elucidation of pathogenesis and histopathological features, a clear coverage of imaging details, supporting laboratory values and studies related to the case are sought for. Reports featuring unique and rare cases with strong basis for diagnosis and a good description and discussion with at least the minimum prescribed diagnostic aids, recent trends in management would be preferred.
