As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Call for Papers: Something in the Water - Fluoridation and Caries
Edited by Morenike Folayan and Maha El Tantawi (also previously Santiago Gómez)
Given the level of interest in public water fluoridation, the range and complexity of the public debate, and its implication for policy making, this Collection aims to bring together empirical research papers, and theoretical and conceptual analyses about water fluoridation and caries. The Collection will consider manuscripts on the following three themes:
- Population level impact of the introduction or the cessation of water fluoridation on health
- Barriers to the implementation of fluoridation and reasons for its cessation, including the assessment and evaluation of the attitudes and knowledge of members of the public, dental professionals and policy makers on water fluoridation
- Ethical arguments for and against water fluoridation
Please read our Call for Papers blog for more information.
