The World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO) will launch the Journal of the World Federation of Orthodontists (JWFO) in March 2012. The peer-reviewed journal will be offered exclusively online on a quarterly basis, and WFO members will have complete access to its content as a membership benefit.

The JWFO will be dedicated to presenting the results of scientific research from orthodontics and related fields. In addition, it will provide a forum in which to discuss this scientific research.

In September 2011, the WFO Executive Committee selected Jorge Faber, DDS, MS, PhD, of Brasilia, Brazil, to serve as the editor-in-chief. Prior to accepting this position, Faber was the editor-in-chief of the Dental Press Journal of Orthodontics for 5 years. Faber is an adjunct professor of orthodontics at the University of Brasilia and has been in private orthodontic practice since 1994.

The JWFO Editorial Board is seeking article submissions for the first issue of the journal and beyond. Interested authors can review the author guidelines and submit articles here.
