Overview of the IJOM

The International Journal of Orofacial Myology and Myofunctional Therapy (IJOM) is dedicated to the study and management of orofacial myofunctional disorders. In December 2020, the International Association of Orofacial Myology's official journal introduced this digital open-access format, hosted by Digital Commons, an Elsevier platform. All papers published in the IJOM are openly available through this website and can be searched in the left sidebar.

In January 2022, the IJOM introduced continuous publishing, making accepted content immediately available. This homepage displays recent content by type of article. To browse a particular issue, go to "Select an issue" in the left sidebar's search window.

Note: There are no fees for submitting, processing, or publishing articles in the IJOM at this time. The Editor-in-Chief, Managing Editor, and all reviewers are volunteers, and the costs associated with using the Digital Commons web platform and services are supported by the International Association of Orofacial Myology.
