To be able to provide open access journals, MDPI finances publication though article processing charges (APC); these are usually covered by the authors' institutes or research funding bodies. Journals published include Molecules (launched in 1996; Impact Factor 2.428), The International Journal of Molecular Sciences (launched in 2000; Impact Factor 2.464), Sensors (launched in 2001; Impact Factor 1.953), Marine Drugs (launched in 2003; Impact Factor 3.978), Energies (launched in 2008; Impact Factor 1.844), The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (launched in 2004; Impact Factor 1.998), Viruses (launched in 2009; Impact Factor 2.509), Remote Sensing (launched in 2009; Impact Factor 2.101), Toxins (launched in 2009; Impact Factor 2.129) and Nutrients (launched in 2009; Impact Factor 2.072). Their publishing activities are supported by more than 5000 active scientists on the journals' international editorial boards, including several Nobel Laureates. More than 120,000 individual authors have already published with MDPI, and 350,000 scholars are in the pool of reviewers. MDPI aims to have all of its journals covered by the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and Scopus indexing systems. Several journals have already been covered by SCIE for several years and have received official impact factors. Some life-science related journals are also covered by PubMed/MEDLINE and archived through PubMed Central (PMC). All the journals are archived with the Swiss National Library.
TSWJ is foremost an online scientific journal serving the research community with a forum for original research and reviews. TSWJ was launched in 2001 as an innovative way to gather, publish and organize scientific and medical information. This single title comprises a set of overlapping domains and clusters, journals and virtual journals, e-books and special issues.
Journal information includes the description (aims and scope), journal abbreviation, journal homepage link, subject category and ISSN. Searching this information allows the rapid identification of potential journals to publish your research in, as well as allow you to find new journals of interest to your field.
The Institute also has an Agreement of Cooperation with Engineers Ireland which means members of either organisation can attend meetings, conferences and use library facilities at members' rates.
ICE also has a Mutual Exemption Agreement with Engineers Ireland which helps professionally qualified members apply for the equivalent grade with the other organisation.
