The copyright is retained by the author subject to the grant of the exclusive license to DMP. DMP publish the author's published material under a Creative Commons attribution-noncommerical license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/.

Published research is the foundation for progress in medicine and science. Open Access publishing therefore leads to wider dissemination of information and increased efficiency in science, by providing:

  • Open Access to the widest audience
    As a researcher, publishing in an open access journal allows anyone with an interest in your work to read it - and that translates into increased usage and impact.

  • Open Access to ideas
    Whether you are a patient seeking health information, an educator wishing to enliven a lesson plan, or a researcher looking to formulate a hypothesis, making papers freely available online provides you with the most current peer-reviewed scientific information and discoveries.
