The International Journal of Orofacial Myology and Myofunctional Therapy (IJOM) is now accepting article submissions.

For the best chance of being included in the 2021 issue, you should complete your submission by September 1st.

There are many great reasons to submit papers to the IJOM. Besides the IJOM’s long-term status as the only peer-reviewed journal entirely dedicated to orofacial myology and myofunctional therapy, a major change this year is that the journal is entirely digital. All papers past and present are open access, meaning that they are free to all readers around the world and are easily discoverable with popular online search engines. In addition, the journal has an impressive Editorial Review Board consisting of professionally and regionally diverse doctoral-level specialists who are eager to review your work. Finally, as has always been the case, there are no fees for submitting or publishing articles in the IJOM. 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. To support this effort, please click on the DONATE button at the bottom of the left sidebar. Notably, no-fee publishing is a highly unusual benefit for open-access journals that we are able to offer at this time. Take advantage of this opportunity while it lasts!


The International Journal of Orofacial Myology and Myofunctional Therapy (IJOM) is dedicated to the study and management of orofacial myofunctional disorders. In 2020, the International Association of Orofacial Myology's official journal introduced this new digital open-access format, hosted by Digital Commons, an Elsevier platform.

All papers previously published in the IJOM are openly available through this website. Feel free to contact us if you notice any errors or have any questions.
