We salute those scholars whose passion is to explore the unknown and help humanity to understand its roots, its present and its future. We empathize with those scholars who put this passion for discovery ahead of the normal social existence thereby sacrificing their normal life for this persistent desire for achieving greatness in their respective fields thereby enhancing the understanding of the world we live in.
As seen in the history of science, sometimes light comes from darkest of places. Major breakthroughs have most of the times come from little known scholars who later on become icons of the scientific community. So we do not to judge the scholars by who they are but by what their research is. Sometimes we may fail to understand the importance of a research paper as has happened many times in the history of science. So we take every research paper very seriously no matter what our intelligence says about it based on our present knowledge.
As you might have noticed, we place a lot of emphasis on the history of science. There is a reason for that. As with any science, medical and dental sciences are evolving as we speak. This evolution of sciences has a pattern which we want to understand. Also we stand to get a great deal of inspiration from the lives of great scientists in whose footsteps we are walking. We would like to tell our colleagues that their efforts will not go in vain. We pledge to bring their work to the attention of the world through our journal.

Peer Review Process-
The manuscripts submitted to 'Journal of Evolution of Medical and Dental Sciences' will be reviewed for possible publication on the understanding that they have been submitted only to 'Journal of Evolution of Medical and Dental Sciences' and have not been published, simultaneously submitted, or accepted for publication elsewhere.
Once a manuscript is submitted to 'Journal of Evolution of Medical and Dental Sciences', it is checked for duplication to prevent plagiarism and is sent to three to five external reviewers who will give the necessary recommendations according to which the article is published unaltered or is sent back to the author for corrections as advised by the reviewer, or rejected. The author is informed regarding the same. Once the article is fit for publication it is published both in print and online journal.
The peer-review process is double blinded, i.e., the reviewers do not know who the authors of the manuscript are and the authors do not have access to the information of who the peer-reviewers are.
