Welcome to the MDPI Open Access Books platform.
MDPI Books is a publishing platform for scholarly and scientific open access books. The book publishing program includes monographs, book series, edited books and reprint books of special issues and topical collections.
Publishing with MDPI
In line with MDPI’s values, we publish all content in open access, promoting the exchange of ideas and knowledge in a globalized world. MDPI Books encompasses all the benefits of open access—high availability and visibility, as well as wide and rapid dissemination. MDPI Books are distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution License — as an author, you retain the copyright for your work. In addition, with MDPI Books, you can complement the digital version of your work with a high-quality printed counterpart.
To ensure the highest quality, MDPI Books only publishes manuscripts that have undergone thorough reviewing. The quality of the content is matched by the quality of presentation, achieved through professional design that guarantees books that are attractive and a pleasure to read. At MDPI Books, we look to provide a fast publication procedure, to guarantee that books covering state-of-the-art research and time-sensitive topics are released with a minimum amount of delay. Furthermore, a non-defined print-run allows adaptations to be incorporated quickly and easily.
Due to our global network (including in the USA, Europe, and Australia) and well-known channel partners (including Amazon), we ensure maximum visibility and broad dissemination. In addition to appearing on the MDPI Books website, title information of books is sent to international indexing databases and archives, such as the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), the Verzeichnis lieferbarer Bücher (VLB), and the Swiss National Library.
Every book we publish is available to read online for free. In addition, printed versions are available through a print-on-demand service. This offers a sustainable and cost-effective way to publish, coupled with rapid printing and delivery. Our service meets the highest quality standards, allowing you to print and purchase as many copies of your work as you require, at any time. Books are printed on high quality paper in 244 × 170 mm (6.69 × 9.61 in) format with a laminated cover. Several options for availability of your book are possible and we will work with you to select the optimum choice.

About MDPI Books
As an established academic publisher and open access pioneer, MDPI believes that the contemporary wave in academia of wider and faster dissemination of knowledge with open access should not be restricted to academic journals but should also capture and elevate book publishing.
Accordingly, MDPI Books offers academic authors the possibility to publish their work in various book forms. To us, whereas academic journals publish the very latest research according to their subject area, academic books are more an invitation to pause for a moment and allow for research reflection.

This reflection may take the form of an extensive discussion in short-form or full-length monographs, including doctoral theses from all fields, or it can take place in an academic conversation with other experts in edited volumes. Particularly the latter provide an opportunity for inter- and transdisciplinary exchange between or beyond different academic disciplines, respectively—the kind of exchange called for in view of the complex challenges we face today and in the future.
The nexus of science, other modes of knowledge, and their orientation towards a sustainable future are especially near MDPI Books’ heart—as reflected, e.g., in our book series. As a series books are particularly well-suited for recording continuous scholarly endeavors regarding a particular question.
