About the Journal

Academic Dermatology (ISSN 2769-3953) was created to fulfill a need for a free-to-publish, open-access platform for skin physiology and skin disease research of interest to the academic community. Academic Dermatology publishes high-quality, peer-reviewed manuscripts that present original research, reviews, observations, and pedagogy.


This journal is a free-to-publish, open-access, not-for-profit publishing platform for all aspects of dermatology.  We are actively seeking sponsors to offset overhead costs of publishing and maintaining a free open-access publisher in dermatology. At this time, overhead costs are shared among member institutions. If you and your institution would like to become involved, or if your company is interested in sponsoring us, please email Benjamin.Kaffenberger@osumc.edu.
