MDPI (www.mdpi.com) is an academic open access publisher based in Basel, Switzerland, founded initially to collect and preserve rare chemical research samples in 1996. To promote the sample collection, MDPI started free electronic journal Molecules that same year.

We are committed to ensuring that high quality research is made available as quickly as possible. We also support sustainability projects, with sustainability as a key theme in many journals and through the MDPI Sustainability Foundation.
