Our subscribers have come to depend on DERMASCOPE as their source of clear, educational information. All articles submitted for consideration must meet the following criteria.



Articles should be written from an aesthetic educator’s point-of-view and geared towards the professional, not consumer. Articles must be educational, comprehensive, and positive in nature. They should read as post-graduate education and with the assumption that readers possess an understanding of skin anatomy and physiology.


Whenever practical, alternative options and techniques should be mentioned. Articles must not be slanted against a particular segment of the trade. Hypotheses should be supported based on documented facts about the subject; theory must be able to stand on its own merits, without referring negatively to other industry services, procedures, or products. References should be included to support any claims.


Overall, the content must remain generic in nature. Articles cannot promote specific products, procedures, or people. Any submission will be rejected if it is purely branded content. Instead, press releases, industry profiles, and news items can be submitted for consideration via our online press submission platform.



Generally, articles are assigned word counts, due dates, and placement in advance. Articles may be submitted without request but will only be considered for placement as space is available. Articles range in word count from 200 to 2,500 words, depending on the placement.


All articles should be submitted electronically via e-mail as a Microsoft Word document. Images, graphs, or charts may be submitted to accompany the article. Images should be high resolution (300 dpi), CMYK, and JPG, TIF, PSD, or EPS format. Photo credits, model releases, and identification of subjects or techniques shown in photographs are required. Images should be generic and should not include any logos or brand-specific items.



The following items should accompany every article submission:

  • 100-word author’s biography (may include contact information for readers). Submissions exceeding 100 words will be edited with the editor’s discretion. The author’s biography will be kept on file and will only be used with articles exceeding 500 words in length. For shorter articles, only a byline is included.
  • a professional, high resolution, color headshot of the author in digital format
  • a signed copyright agreement (articles will not be published without receipt of this)



All article submissions must be the original works of the author. Simultaneous submissions will not be considered. Reprints are NOT accepted. DERMASCOPE acquires all rights and the signed copyright agreement form is required.


We publish manuscripts on an average of two to four months after acceptance. We reserve the right to final edit all materials and to cancel an article or reschedule its publication date according to our discretion. Scheduled content is subject to change at the discretion of the editorial department. We reserve the right to use material for print or online, according to our discretion, on the condition that the content meets our editorial guidelines.


We appreciate your interest in contributing to DERMASCOPE and look forward to your editorial contribution.
