The Editorial Board of the Journal of Endodontics is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 JOE Awards, recognizing the best articles published in JOE during the 2015 calendar year. Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations, and to all of the authors who published their work in the JOE this year. Your contributions keep the endodontic specialty strong!

The winning papers represent significant advances in endodontics, and were selected for their scientific merit and broad impact on dental research; originality of research objectives and ideas presented; creativity of study design and uniqueness of approaches and concepts; validity of statistical and/or epidemiological methods; and clarity of presentation.
