New St Andrews membership with the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI)

The University Library is delighted to announce that we now have a membership with MDPI - Open Access Publishing that publishes in disciplines ranging from Biology and Life Sciences to Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. We hope that the choice of journals, an easy user interface for authors and system integration with central funding needs will make this an attractive Open Access publication venue choice for researchers.

Please note the eligibility criteria for the University of St Andrews central open access funds.

Central funds are available for:
  • Papers acknowledging funding from Arthritis Research UK, Breast Cancer Campaign, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and the Wellcome Trust, where the corresponding author is at the University of St Andrews
  • Papers acknowledging RCUK funding (AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, MRC, NERC or STFC), where the corresponding author is at the University of St Andrews
  • Corresponding authors who are full St Andrews staff or research students and who have no other source of open access funding 

St Andrews authors who are not eligible under the above criteria will still receive the membership discount but will be requested to pay for Article Processing Charges from their own budgets, should the paper be accepted for publication.

In all cases authors must confirm eligibility with the University Library before agreeing to pay an APC.
