would you say it’s a lot more difficult to get published in a ”top” dental journal? like the AJODO/Angle for ortho or Journal of Endodontics for endo (I’m not familiar with the top journals for OMFS)Get an attending/faculty member on board with you and I don't think it's terribly difficult, it's just a long process (they're usually swamped). Coming up with an initial idea is the toughest part tbh. Doing the stats side of it can also be difficult. Usually the attending/faculty member you are working with will get a statistician on the paper.

So all oral surgery programs require a research project and thesis defense during residency?I'm still enduring this long, painful process myself, but as long as your idea holds some academic value and the statistics are fine with no bias, then you should be ok.
I think it all depends on the content of your manuscript. If your content adds to the profession of dentistry and is well written, I feel acceptance of a manuscript is likely. Personally, I’ve just had a manuscript accepted by the JOE. It took about a month once submitted to be notified of acceptance. No one fancy on the article. It was only myself ( GP), my assistant (DA), and a local oral surgeon. Hope that helps.How difficult is it to get a research manuscript published in a peer reviewed journal? Will it be a big boost for specialty applications?
