A Warm Welcome to the New IOAP Participants, September 19, 2017 12:24

We are delighted to have welcomed 24 new participants to our Institutional Open Access Programme (IOAP) since the beginning of September this year. These are University libraries and Research Institutions located around the world; from the USA and Canada to the UK, and from Norway and Spain to Greece. Well respected Universities, such as the University of Denver, the University of Colorado Boulder, and the University of Arizona in the US, have signed up, while their researchers can now benefit from a 10% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APC) for any papers they publish in MDPI journals, at no cost for the library or the University.

We are more than happy to see the Open Access movement growing stronger and wider every day and we appreciate the vital role which librarians, repository managers, and other scholarly communications professionals play in the field. Our communication with and service to this community is, therefore, one of our principal priorities. The IOAP is our way to support academic and scientific Institutions as well as their scholars in managing, administrating, and publishing research in an Open Access world.

The IOAP set of free services, provided by MDPI to institutions that sign up, include:

Barcelona 2017–2018 | Upcoming Conferences Organized by MDPI, September 4, 2017 11:39

We are glad to announce that, on Friday 8 September 2017, the 1st Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium will be taking place in Barcelona at the School of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the University of Barcelona, Spain.

Our open-access journal Molecules is the sponsor of this one-day monographic symposium that will address the topic of Emerging Drug Discovery Approaches against Infectious Diseases. In this sense, our intention is to provide a forum for discussion from novel biological targets and resistance mechanisms to the design and synthesis of new structural classes or the implementation of innovative therapeutic approaches against bacterial, protozoan, viral, and fungal infections. The event will gather together over 70 experts in the field of medicinal chemistry from more than 15 countries and 3 continents, mostly from academia but also from pharmaceutical industry and product development partnerships, therefore offering a very interesting platform for international networking in this field.

Following this event, Barcelona will also be hosting two more MDPI Conferences this year:
