JADA begins move to digital-only publication

Student members to have full access to articles online

In an effort to be more environmentally friendly and keep up with a publishing field that is becoming increasingly digital, The Journal of the American Dental Association will transition to a digital-only publication over the next few years.

Beginning in March, student members of the ADA will no longer receive print copies of the journal, but they will continue to have full access to every article and issue posted online at Many articles publish online weeks before they appear in a print issue, giving members a chance to read future issues before they are developed and printed.

JADA will gradually reduce its print run each year. However, those who favor receiving a physical copy of the journal will be able to purchase a discounted print subscription from the ADA Store. For student members, the annual cost is $36.
