Corrections of typographical errors or Dove Medical Press errors will not incur any cost. However, Dove Medical Press may charge the authors US$65 per individual item for any alterations that authors request at “author approval” stage, especially to figures.

NB: Dove Medical Press strongly encourages authors to check the proofs carefully, paying special attention to spellings of author names as NO corrections or changes can be done after the article is published.
