MDPI publishes several peer-reviewed, open access journals listed at
http://www.mdpi.org. There are 6 Nobel Prize winners on the editorial boards of
these scientific journals (http://www.mdpi.org/nobelists.htm). MOLECULES
(ISSN 1420-3049) journal has been published online since 1996
(http://www.mdpi.org/molecules/). It maintains a rigorous and fast peer-review
system. Well written papers have been peer reviewed and published in less than 1
month from manuscript submission, see the example:
Because it is an online journal, papers published in MOLECULES receive very
high publicity. This journal is indexed and abstracted very rapidly by the leading
indexing and abstracting services including Beilstein, Chemical Abstracts,
PubMed and Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science).
This special issue will be fully Open Access with publishing fees paid by authors.
Open Access (unlimited access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more
frequent citations as indicated by several studies. More information is available at
Please send your paper by e-mail to email@example.com and send copies to Prof.
Dr. Guigen Li (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Derek McPhee (email@example.com).
The subject title of the message should be "Manuscript for Special Issue on
Baylis-Hillman Reaction and Related Processes".
In addition, if you have any suggestions of possible alternative special issue topics
related to Organic Synthesis, or can recommend a top expert to guest edit a
special issue, please do not hesitate to let us know.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
