Aims and scope

Head & Face Medicine is an open access journal that publishes basic and clinical research in all fields related to cranial, facial and oral health, including but not limited to: oral and maxillofacial medicine, oto-rhino-laryngology, dentistry, facial reconstructive surgery, neurology, neurosurgery and ophthalmology.

The journal welcomes research on the development, etiology, epidemiology and therapy of head and face diseases, and on the basic science aspects of these diseases. Disease management encompasses all aspects of surgical and non-surgical treatments, including psychopharmacological therapies. New clinical research that has an immediate impact on clinical practice is of particular interest.

Studies that address health conditions from a multidisciplinary perspective, combine methods and options from several disciplines or have implications for disciplines beyond their core approach are particularly welcome.

Contributions are peer-reviewed and selected by a global editorial board representing the disciplines covered by the journal.
