Open Access Publication: All manuscripts submitted to Dove Medical Press are assumed to be submitted under the Open Access publishing model. In this publishing model, papers are peer-reviewed in the normal way under editorial control. When a paper is accepted for publication the author is issued with an invoice for payment of an article publishing charge (see payment details below). Article publishing charges invoiced to the UK are subject to 20% VAT. There is no submission charge as such, only the article publishing charge after the paper is accepted for publication. Payment of this charge allows Dove Medical Press to recover its editorial and production costs and create a pool of funds that can be used to provide fee waivers for authors from lesser developed countries (see below).

Published papers appear electronically and are freely available from our website. Authors may also use their published .pdf's for any non-commercial use on their personal or non-commercial institution's website.

Upon acceptance for publication a publishing charge will be payable. Owing to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates fees may occasionally be subject to change without notice.

Commercial use: No articles from the Dove Medical Press website may be reproduced, in any media or format, or linked to for any commercial purpose (eg. product support, etc) without the prior written consent of Dove Medical Press and payment to Dove Medical Press of an appropriate fee. For further information on commercial use of published papers please click here.

Color illustrations: Open Access papers appear electronically. As no printed issues of any Dove journals are produced there are NO additional charges for color illustrations.  

Authors living in developing countries: We encourage our authors to publish their papers with us and don’t wish the cost of article publishing charges to be an insurmountable barrier especially to authors from the low and lower middle income countries. A range of discounts or waivers are offered to authors who are unable to pay our article publishing charges. These are dependent on current availability of funds for fee waivers. 

Who can request an APC discount or waiver to reduce publishing charges (APCs) for open access articles?

  • Contact authors with primary affiliation in countries defined by the World Bank as low-income economies and which also have a gross domestic product (GDP) of less than 100 billion US dollars, are entitled to 100% APC waiver when they publish in a full open access journal.
  • A 50% discount on a normal APC is also available to contact authors from countries defined by the World Bank as lower-middle income economy, who have a 2022 gross domestic product (GDP) of less than 200 billion US dollars. See the full list of eligible countries.

Please note that changes made to the World Bank list of Low-Income Economies each July can take a short period of time to be reflected in our submission systems. You may find discrepancies until the beginning of August while the update work takes place.

Discretionary waivers:
We will consider requests for discretionary APC waivers by researchers who aren’t eligible for the above. You can request a discretionary waiver prior to submitting your manuscript here.

Please include supporting evidence for why a waiver would be necessary in your circumstances.  Your request should include details of:

  • The affiliation and country of residence of all authors.
  • Details of where the research was conducted.
  • Confirmation of all research grant funding received. 

If you have already accepted a discounted price offered to you at the time of submission please be aware that this is the maximum discount and we are unable to help you further.

Authors who receive the support of, or are employed by, a commercial organization (e.g. pharmaceutical company) will not be liable to receive this discounted price. They will be asked to pay the full advertised price in effect at the time of submission.

Discounts may not be combined and where multiple discounts are available the one most favorable to the author will apply.

Refunds:
In the event of a refund Dove Medical Press will retain EUR278, GBP230 or US$300 to cover transaction and processing costs.

Before publication: If Dove Medical Press reasonably considers that the article should not be published, (on the advice of our legal counsel), we may decline to publish the article and would refund the APC. A fee of EUR278, GBP230 or US$300 will be retained to cover transaction and processing costs.

After publication: If Dove Medical Press consider that the article should be retracted or removed from our website, for example because of a breach in author warranties, and does so, we would be under no obligation to refund the APC.
