New Participants in the Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP)
We are pleased to welcome new participants to MDPI's Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP), designed to help institutions manage the transition to the Open Access publishing model. Researchers affiliated with participating universites benefit from a 10% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APC) for any paper published in an MDPI journal, while the participating library or university incurs no basic fee for participating in the program.
The IOAP set of free services, provided by MDPI to institutions that sign up, include:
No fee for participants and no obligation to prolong after the initial 12 months. The participants may withdraw from the programme at any time, and we will also keep it free for the library for as long as they continue in the programme.
Authors affiliated with the university will receive a 10% discount on the APC.
The institution is granted free access to the MDPI submission system and can receive free alerts of new submissions to our journals.
By default, authors from the institution will continue to be invoiced directly unless the institution opts for central billing.
Auto-archiving of papers into the institutions´ repository as long as it supports SWORD 1.3.
