International Journal of Orthodontics (IJO)
The International Journal of Orthodontics (IJO) is a quarterly peer-reviewed clinical journal published by the International Association for Orthodontics (IAO). It has been continuously published since 2002 and is the successor of the Journal of General Orthodontics.
The IJO features original scientific and clinical articles on orthodontics, plus an editorial, practice tips and office management hints. The purpose of the IJO is to serve as an educational tool, as well as to present innovative treatment mechanisms as they are developed.
Journal of General Orthodontics
The Journal of General Orthodontics was the Predecessor of the International Journal of Orthodontics (IJO). It ran from the Spring of 1990 until the Winter of 2001. Like the IJO, the Journal of General Orthodontics was a quarterly peer-reviewed clinical journal published by the International Association for Orthodontics (IAO).
It featured a wide range of orthodontic topics. The material includes in-depth articles on techniques, advancements, case studies, editorials, and practical tips. All forty-eight issues can be accessed. Just like the IJO, each one is indexed. Thus, they can be searched via topic, keyword, author, or title.
This is the perfect research tool for a paper or article regarding the origins of a new technique, technology, or other advancement to come out in the 90s.
The Functional Orthodontist
The Functional Orthodontist was a quarterly journal that ran from 1984 until 2007. It featured articles on case studies, techniques, and technologies. Similar to the Journal of General Orthodontics, it is the perfect tool to find the origins of said techniques and technologies to come about in the mid-80s through the mid-2000s. Every issue is archived on the IAO website.
