So, you want to submit a photo for consideration?
Dentists are an Artistic bunch! If your artistry extends to photography, we welcome submissions from you to be considered as a cover photo in an upcoming issue. We welcome landscapes, cityscapes, and particularly delicious looking fruit in bowls, etc. We would even be willing to entertain some arresting micrographs.
As these photos will constitute advertisement for the Journal, we must be very careful of copyright and other property restrictions. Any photos with recognizable people in them, or with corporate logos, or trademarks in them may be submitted, but will have to be accompanied by some significant legal forms (that we have available for you). Photos taken on and/or of private property will also have some legal wrangling to do. As such, we ask our submitters to limit the number of photos submitted that may run afoul of these restrictions. No one likes reviewing legal paperwork – especially our hard working editorial assistant – Kevin!
Submitted photos become the property of Operative Dentistry, Inc.. If your photo is chosen for use, you will receive two free copies of the journal for your portfolio, and you will be notified before publication so you can order additional copies for all your friends! The copyright for photos that are not used will revert to the author after 24 months. Please see the Non-Manuscript copyright agreement for full details – found at the link below (Cover Photo Copyright info and forms).
Photos must be submitted in digital format. Images should be high-resolution – 300 dpi, at least 5×5 inches (1500 x 1500 pixels minimum), and be in high quality JPG or PNG formats. The images will not be returned. Digital enhancements are permitted, but must be acknowledged in the photo description (i.e. the software used for enhancement).
If you have questions or problems with the submission system, please email the editorial assistant, Kevin Matis, at [email protected].
