  • Publication fees for Effectiveness of Non-surgical foreskin restoration

    If you're a writer of any sort, you can understand how many reject letters you receive before you finally get that one letter you have been waiting for. My manuscript entitled “Effectiveness of non-surgical foreskin restoration (NSFR) to regain prepuce function and increase positive body image” was under consideration for publication in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Today, I received the reject letter, however this time the Editor-In-Chief has stated that, "the mission of PRS Global Open is to be the international voice of plastic surgery by freely providing current, relevant, and local evidence-based medicine to plastic surgeons and all affiliated medical specialists worldwide to improve patient care and outcomes. I feel that your manuscript would help fulfill this mission." He has recommended that I transfer my submission to the PRS Global Open, however with acceptance there is a $1,995 processing fee which covers "numerous expenses incurred by publication, including the peer review process, journal production and publication, and hosting and archiving fees."

    As of Friday, January 29, 2016 (01/29/2016), there was a combined total of 15,300 active members registered with and That about a mere 0.13¢ per person, or at 13% of the active users on foreskin restoring groups, $1.00 per person!

    TLDR; Help fund the publication of a research article and survey on Foreskin Restoration in the Plastic and Reconstructive Global Open.

    Well, I have to admit I haven't seen this pitch on forums before.

    1. What, if any, are your formal credentials?

    2. What personal experience do you have in tugging?

    3. What data base did you consider accurate enough to pull from to write this or any other article, if you have no personal experience? In other words, how do you know what is, and isn't, true and proven in skin expansion as we do it.

    4. Give us a general outline of your article, including your understanding of how the term "foreskin restoration" is actually an inaccuracy (contrasting that with what is a more accurate assessment of results), how skin expansion works on our level (the biochemical mechanics involved, the tissues involved, etc), the common time frame required for it to work, and what, in your view, are the physiological benefits of tugging.

    5. We tuggers have more than money. We have personal experience (many of us), and some understanding (some of us) of the issues involved in penile skin expansion. Please show us a bit of yours.

    If you want money with no return, you are asking for gift-givers, not investors; of course that's how GoFundMe works, even when it's legitimate. We are working, or have worked, hard for our benefits. We have experienced more than our share of derision in past articles. We want bona fide representation. A little quid pro quo information would be considerate.

    Thank you for your time.
