Benefits of Book Publishing with MDPI

Open access

In line with MDPI’s values, we publish all content in open access format, thus 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 fast dissemination.

MDPI Books are mainly distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution License which means that authors will retain copyright of their work. Details of the copyright agreement will be defined for every individual submission.

Reduction of costs

MDPI offers an easy and modern print-on-demand service that seeks to meet the highest standards with minimal investment. This service allows you to print and purchase as many copies of your work as you require at any given time. Authors and Editors can order hard cover copies at discounted price.

Give your book different formats

In addition to the digital version, which is accessible worldwide without any restrictions and ensures highest visibility, we offer a printed hardcover edition with high quality paper in 244 x 170 mm (6.69 x 9.61 in) format and matte color laminated cover. We also provide the means to create an eBook in the standardized EPUB format. Together we can find the best solution for your needs.

Speedy service and high quality

Print on demand is not only cost-effective but also allows a rapid publication within a couple of weeks after submission. The rapid publication procedure guarantees state-of-the-art research and allows the inclusion of time-sensitive topics. An efficient and sustainable form of open access publishing will be offered, while maintaining a high quality. MDPI books are subject to a rigorous peer review and editorial process. Furthermore, a non-defined print-run allows a fast and easy correction procedure.

Dissemination and Discovery

Due to our global network (including the USA, Europe, Australia) and well-known channel partners (e.g., Amazon), we ensure optimum visibility and dissemination.

The title reports are sent to international indexing databases and archives, such as DOAB (Directory of Open Access Books), the VLB (Verzeichnis lieferbarer Bücher), and the Swiss National Library, to provide the highest visibility with high recognition. This also applies to Special Issue Reprints. All books are automatically included on the MDPI Books platform.
