Article Processing Charges
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 processing charge (see payment details below) before their paper can progress any further. 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 processing charge will be payable.
- Article processing charge invoiced to EU countries are subject to 20% VAT.
- Owing to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates fees may occasionally be subject to change without notice.
Commercial use: No CC-BY-NC 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 papers published under a CC-BY-NC license please see sections 4 and 5 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 processing charge 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 processing charges. These are dependent on current availability of funds for fee waivers. We use the World Bank Country Classification table to identify:
Low income countries. Corresponding authors resident in these countries may apply to be considered for up to a 100% waiver of the standard article processing charge;
Lower middle income. Corresponding authors resident in these countries may apply to be considered for a 50% waiver of the standard article processing charge.
If you are living in a low or middle income country and need to apply for a waiver please email Vivienne Gee (email@example.com) with the following information before submitting your paper:
- Your name and institution with full address details
- Title of journal you wish to submit a manuscript to
- Reason for applying for a waiver
- Title of your paper
- Country of residence of any co-authors.
We will consider all requests for discretionary APC waivers by researchers who aren’t eligible for the above. Please state your request for a discretionary waiver prior to submitting your manuscript by email to Vivienne Gee (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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.
