The Journal of Dry Eye and Ocular Surface Disease (JDEOSD) publishes research and scholarly contributions that inform the development, implementation, and evaluation of practice, research, education and leadership in dry eye disease research. JDEOSD provides a platform for researchers, academics and practitioners to share knowledge in the form of high-quality research papers, review papers and case studies.

The Journal of Dry Eye and Ocular Surface Disease (JDEOSD), like other Open Access journals, charges Article Processing Charges (APC) to individual authors and institutions to offset expenses usually covered by the subscriptions and advertisements of subscription-based journals. Starting January 1, 2019, the APC will be US $399.  The APC is only applicable to articles that successfully pass peer review.  For more information on article processing charges please visit the journal's website here

APCs are per article and billed upon acceptance of an article, after it has successfully passed the peer review process. There are no additional charges based on color, length, figures, or other elements.  Letters to the Editor and small commentaries (up to 250 words), and select invited articles are not charged an APC.

An author’s ability to pay APCs is not a consideration in the decision of whether to publish.  Authors living in one of the United Nations' list of Least Developed Countries may request a fee waiver. Authors living in countries not considered "least developed"  who do not have the ability to pay the APC's may be eligible for a reduced rate. Please contact the publisher directly at
