MDPI Publishing Services
- Managed Journals: Administrative support from MDPI staff
- JAMS: Integrated services to run every aspect of your journal
- Scilit: A database to support your publications
MDPI offers services to support academic journal publishers of all sizes, including publishers with a single journal, university presses, or larger enterprises. By partnering with us, publishers can take advantage of simple, rapid, scalable procedures and intuitive software that will take attention away from procedural details and free up time to focus on journal development.
Are you running a journal at a university, society or other research institution? MDPI can manage your open access journal on your behalf. We will assign a dedicated Managing Editor as a single point of contact and, depending on the size of the journal, Assistant Editors as support. Our staff will handle all administrative aspects of the journal, including contact with authors and reviewers, marketing, and invoicing. By regular contact with the appointed Editor-in-Chief, you can set the direction of the journal and maintain oversight of all aspects.
JAMS: Editorial Support FunctionsJAMS (the Journal and Article Management System) is a set of services to allow you to run your journal in an efficient way. It includes two major aspects: a journal management website and supporting production services. We offer a high level of flexibility, so you can select the services you need and integrate your existing workflow.
A Fully Integrated Journal Management Website
JAMS is the submission system behind MDPI’s 250 journals. It is a comprehensive, web-based software that integrates:
- The editorial process
- Production and publication
- Invoicing of journal APCs or other costs
- Journal and user management
For further details, see the JAMS website.
Production Services: From Acceptance to Publication
JAMS also integrates a full production service, taking papers accepted for publication and returning a formatted PDF, along with other file types and details of the production procedures.
Papers can be prepared for publication in as little as one week and we offer a 7 day per week service, ensuring minimal delays between acceptance and final publication.
For further details and to request a quoation, see the JAMS website.
Scilit: A Database to Support Your Publications
Scilit is a comprehensive database of over 100 million scholarly articles. It can be searched directly from Scilit and also supports functions for publishers and authors:
Keep authors informed about papers in your journal that cite their work. The Scitations function sends an email to authors of cited papers informing them about the new publication.
Put in a few keywords and the Scilit search engine will retrieve a list of potential reviewers, along with their contact details and titles of papers they have published. These can be incorporated directly into your submission system to invite.
Reviewer Blast (Conflict of interest checker)
Editors want to avoid inviting reviewers that have a conflict of interest with authors. Scilit can do an automatic check based on author names and/or email addresses, and return a percentage match. By linking to the original publication, editors can verify the full details for themselves.
Authors can stay up-to-date with latest research from all publishers by using customized searches. They receive daily or weekly notifications of papers that match their criteria as soon as it is added to Scilit, often within hours of publication.
