English corrections

This journal is published in English, so it is essential that for proper refereeing and quick publication all manuscripts be submitted in grammatically correct English. For this purpose we ask that non-native English speakers ensure their manuscripts are checked before submitting them for consideration. We suggest that for this purpose your manuscript be revised by an English speaking colleague before submission. If judged as required by the reviewers or the editors, MDPI will manage the English language editing and corrections at a surcharge of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs).
