Pakistan Orthodontic Journal (POJ) is an official publication of the Pakistan Association of Orthodontists (PAO). It is the only premier peer reviewed journal of Orthodontics in Pakistan published biannually (June/December). The journal was founded by Dr. Amjad Mahmood and his team (PAO office bearers, 2009) based on the constitutional ideology of the Association and its first publication was in June 2009.

The journal produces publications in Orthodontics and allied topics, featuring original articles, reviews, case reports and short communications. It focuses on bringing together research articles by noted and emerging scholars. The Association is trying its level best to make POJ papers important, lively contributions to scholarship and essential library resource especially for faculty and residents. It is hoped that it is used extensively by orthodontists and scholars in related fields, both nationally and internationally.

In 2012 the editorial board found it important to bring the journal online, as articles freely available online are more highly cited. Online scholarly publication is important to both individual career outcomes and the wider relevant impact of scholarly knowledge. It's an absolute pleasure to be able to bring you articles and we hope you will all enjoy the read.
