MDPI is currently setting up an institutional membership scheme for libraries (as of Fall 2013). The following institutes have already chosen to join the MDPI membership scheme. Please note that the corresponding or leading authors must be associated with the listed institutes to benefit of the discount. More institutes will be added over the next few months. In case your institute is not listed in our membership scheme table, please inform us at email@example.com and kindly provide your library’s contact information. We will reach out to your library to discuss the possibility of a membership.
The MDPI institutional membership provides discounts to authors from the associated institute for a small membership fee (support-membership). The institute can decide if the APCs are to be paid centrally (central payment), or paid in full by the authors (non-central, author paid) or shared between author and institute (split payment).
