An alert for authors

Lucy Price on September 26, 2018 at 3:20 am

It has recently come to our attention that several of our authors have received an email claiming to be from the ‘Dove Innovation Awards 2018.’ The correspondence then goes on to ask for personal and financial details in order for the recipient to be awarded the ‘Dove Innovation Award.’

Dove Medical Press have no association or affiliation with the ‘Dove Innovation Awards' and have no knowledge as to the authenticity of this awarding body.

The ‘Dove Innovation Awards’ are not to be confused with the Dove Medical Press Awards by which we celebrate excellence and innovation in the scientific and medical research field. Dove Medical Press will never ask for a payment in order to receive an award.

We also have no affiliation or association with any company of a similar name such as ‘Doveproof', ‘Dove Proofreading', or ‘Dove Editing Services.’

If you are ever in doubt as to whether an email has come from Dove Medical Press, please connect with an editorial staff member directly by using our live chat service.

Please be vigilant with your personal and financial information, and contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.
