About the Journal


Jurnal Radiologi Dentomaksilofasial Indonesia (JRDI) is an official open access scientific publication published by Ikatan Radiologi Kedokteran Gigi Indonesia (IKARGI) / Indonesian Association of Dentomaxillofacial Radiologyunder the supervision of Persatuan Dokter Gigi Indonesia (PDGI) / Indonesian Dental Association. Published triannually, the submission process opens throughout the year.

JRDI was originally a paper-based publication of the IKARGI association dedicated to internal audiences and purposes. Its first volume was published in April 2017 which became the first proposed sharing media between the members as dentomaxillofacial radiology and its specialization was one of the newest and youngest dental specializations in Indonesia.

Around the first quarter of 2019, the Indonesian Dental Association (PDGI) then invited this journal to convert online, become a registered journal and join their scientific publication platform, under the centralized management of e-Journal Persatuan Dokter Gigi Indonesia which also hosts three other active professional dental journals. Since then JRDI has got its official ISSNs and website, being publicly online as an open-access scientific journal. JRDI now becomes the only journal from Indonesia and South-East Asia, that is focusing on the area of dentomaxillofacial radiology.


Jurnal Radiologi Dentomaksilofasial Indonesia (JRDI) is designated as a publication platform of scientific knowledge, mainly publishing original research, case reports and reviews (narrative reviews, scoping reviews, systematic reviews, meta-analysis), specialized in the area of Dentomaxillofacial Radiology, including but not limited to, radiograph interpretation and techniques, radiopathology, radioanatomy, digital radiography, technologies and modalities in radiology, teledentistry, radiation effect and protection.

Authors must submit their original works in English. Any submitted manuscripts with Bahasa Indonesia beforehand will still be processed.
