What is the advantage to you of publishing in the International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?

  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Dove website.
  • Although the International Journal of COPD receives a large number of papers, unlike many traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.
  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors. The International Journal of COPD has a quicker turnaround time than this. Generally peer review is complete within 3-4 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-14 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 6 weeks for first editorial decision.
  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.

To recover our editorial and production costs and continue to provide our content at no cost to readers we charge authors or their institution a publication processing fee.
