About the Journal

Aims and scope

Dermatology and Therapy is an international, open access, peer-reviewed, rapid publication journal (peer review in 2 weeks, published 3–4 weeks from acceptance)dedicated to the publication of high-quality preclinical, clinical (all phases), observational, real-world, and health outcomes research around the discovery, development, and use of dermatological therapies. Studies relating to diagnosis, devices, pharmacoeconomics, public health and epidemiology, quality of life, and patient care, management, and education are also encouraged.

Areas of focus include, but are not limited to: all clinical aspects of dermatology, such as skin pharmacology; skin development and aging; prevention, diagnosis, and management of skin disorders and melanomas; research into dermal structures and pathology; and all areas of aesthetic dermatology, including skin maintenance, dermatological surgery, and lasers.

The journal is of interest to a broad audience of pharmaceutical and healthcare professionals and publishes original research, reviews, case reports, and short communications. The journal appeals to a global audience and receives submissions from all over the world.

Moving forward from traditional publishing, Dermatology and Therapy offers a range of additional enhanced features designed to increase visibility, readership, and the educational value of the content. Each paper is accompanied by a bulleted Summary slide, giving a time-efficient overview of the content to a wide readership. Articles also have the option to include slide sets, videos, audioslides and animations. All enhanced features are open access and are peer reviewed to the same high standard as the article itself.

Dermatology and Therapy publishes supplements and special issues (in English or a local language). Material appropriate for supplements/special issues include: sponsored meeting proceedings, roundtable discussions, workshop reports, case series, and collections of articles on the same topic. All articles are subject to peer review, and must adhere to the ICMJE and GPP policies on acknowledgments/disclosures. Proposals for supplements are welcomed, and should be addressed to matthew.evans@springer.com.

Dermatology and Therapy's rapid publication, personalized service, and open access iare funded by article processing charges. Current fees are: £250/ €340/ $380 per printed page.
