P&G Sponsors Dental Poster Project

August 27, 2013

Open access site for scientific research.

Procter & Gamble (P&G), the makers of Crest and Oral-B is now the sponsor of the open-access, scientific site, World Dental Posters ( The project is being assisted by an educational grant from P&G.

World Dental Posters is an open access site launched in March 2013 that provides scientific researchers the opportunity to upload their peer-reviewed posters at no cost for as long as they wish. Typically, peer-reviewed posters are presented at industry congresses, conferences and meetings or through subscription-based journals – this site gives the authors another channel to present their findings. The site also provides citable references that informed the research, without losing copyright protection for the individual authors.

Philip Giorgi, managing director and co-owner of Stephen Hancocks Limited, conceived the idea for World Dental Posters after seeing a pile of posters discarded at numerous international dental conferences and congresses. He realized there was an opportunity to identify a way to keep this research available for others to see around the world.

Posters uploaded on to the World Dental Posters site are indexed by title, author name(s) and key words and can remain on the site for free for as long as the author(s) wish. Future developments will include forum and discussion areas for connecting researchers with similar interests and ideas from different geographic locations who might otherwise be unaware of each other’s work.
