About the Journal
SKIN is a bi-monthly, peer-reviewed, open access, online medical journal dedicated to providing an enhanced route to disseminate new dermatologic knowledge on all aspects of cutaneous disease. The journal carries in-depth reviews (2500 word max.), brief articles (inclusive of case reports, 1000 words max.), and short communications (500 words or less), and compelling comments (300 words max.) which focus on all aspects of dermatology and cutaneous disease.
The journal implements best practice in scientific publishing with a rigorous blind peer-review process, declarations of competing interests and funding, full requirements for patient consent and ethical review, and statements of guarantorship, contributorship, and provenance.
SKIN is committed to education and to the support of early career dermatologists with its robust resident/fellow, medical student and undergraduate editorial board. Members are expected to review articles, submit articles for publication consideration, mentor younger members and support the journal's missions and goals. SKIN is also committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in the selection of editors and editorial board members, journal content from both geographically diverse areas and under-represented communities.
