Rights of Authors, Readers and the Publisher

      

CC-BY-NC License

Authors who submit papers to Dove Medical Press (DMP) under a CC-BY-NC license do so under the Open Access facility and pay to have their paper freely available online. Authors will be asked to sign an Open Access license agreement, details of which are:

Articles published under this arrangement are made freely available online upon publication without subscription barriers to access. Users of such published articles are entitled to use, reproduce, disseminate, or display these articles provided that:

  • The original authorship is properly and fully attributed;

  • The journal and publisher are attributed as the original place of publication with correct citation details given;

  • If an original work is subsequently reproduced or disseminated not in its entirety but only in part or as a derivative work this is clearly indicated;

  • No articles are reproduced for commercial use (see sections 4 and 5 here) without the prior consent of DMP and payment to DMP of any appropriate fee.

Authors are also entitled to deposit the final electronic version of the article into an institutional or centrally organized subject repository upon publication. This is provided that they include a link to the published version of the article on the journal's web site, and that the journal and DMP are attributed as the original place of publication, with correct citations given.

This broad license has been developed to facilitate open access to, and free use of, original works of all types for personal, research and educational use but not commercial use (see sections 4 and 5 here for the definition of commercial use).

In the future DMP may choose to produce printed copies of articles in bound form. This means that articles will reach a wider audience than users of the web-based journals we produce, and that articles will be available in durable form. Without prejudice to the terms of the license (see Author Information section of this website) we reserve the right to reproduce author's articles in this way. We further reserve the right to sell any copies made to DMP’s benefit and credit.  This right is exclusive to DMP and the author must disclose any third party who may have a conflict of interest in this regard.
