Open Access Policy
Journal of Dermatology and Skin Science publishes all its articles under an open access model. This journal provides worldwide electronic distribution of immediately and permanently freely accessible peer-reviewed scientific literature. Through our journal, all scientists, scholars, professors, students, and other curious minds will be able to "copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship."
Statement of Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI):
By "open access" to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.
The journal supports the open exchange of advanced scientific information among scientists and the public. The journal ensures that its access policies and practices for information dissemination are consistent with the sustainability of a system requiring careful scientific review prior to publication.
