Institutional Membership

MDPI is dedicated to providing free access to the latest research. To cover the costs of publishing open access, authors pay article processing charges (APCs) for accepted papers. Some institutions may find that associated authors regularly publish in MDPI journals, and that administering the increasing number of APCs can be time consuming. Our membership program aims to support institutions through the following means:

Simplification

  • To support with simplifying payment processes, we can adjust our invoicing procedure to meet the needs of each institution. We are able to customize invoices as required, bundle them, or issue them only on a specific day each month. We can continue to send invoices to the corresponding author (author-distributed payment) or issue invoices centrally to an address of choice (central payment).
  • There is no complex contract or hidden terms and conditions—just one simple membership form.
  • The institution can cancel the membership at any time.

Transparency

  • All institutional members receive free access to our online submission system “Susy”, providing a wide range of meta-data on articles under processing, as well as articles published from associated authors since 2010.
  • Data from Susy, including information on invoices, can be exported to Excel with a single click.
  • Institutions can choose to be notified about new submissions, and can receive alerts when a paper is accepted or published. Notifications can be enabled or disabled directly from Susy.

Cost Reduction

  • Associated authors receive discounts on the APCs for accepted articles.
  • The reduced admin efforts from our invoicing process can help to save institutes time and effort.

Access to Online Submission Site “Susy” for Institutional Members

  • Contains metadata on all articles under processing from associated authors and articles published since 2010.
  • Provides information on status of articles, submissions and publication dates, author names and contact details, APC of each paper, actual invoiced amounts etc.
  • All data can be exported to Excel.
  • E-mail notifications about new submissions, acceptances and publications can be enabled / disabled.
  • Access to Susy is free of charge

Selection of the Membership during Submission

  • Authors are prompted in the last step of submission to determine if they are eligible for discounts under the membership program
  • The membership is pre-selected if authors are submitting from within the network of the insitute (IP range detection)
  • Our staff cross-check all incoming submissions
