Journals Covered by Leading Indexing Databases
At MDPI, we aim to expand coverage by the main academic databases Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and Scopus to all journals. Forty-eight journals were included in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) in Web of Science towards the end of 2018. Ten out of these titles are receiving first Journal Impact Factors (JIF) in 2019. Furthermore, the large majority of biomed-related journals are archived in PubMed Central, with article abstracts to be found in PubMed/MEDLINE. All MDPI journals are archived long-term with the Swiss National Library and CLOCKSS.
All Content is Open Access and Free for Readers
Journals published by MDPI are fully open access: research articles, reviews or any other content on this platform is available to everyone free of charge. To be able to provide open access journals, we finance publication through article processing charges (APC); these are usually covered by the authors' institutes or research funding bodies.
