Paper Invitation to Special Issue “Development of New Methods of Synthesis of Heterocycles” [Molecules IF 3.098]
Molecules is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Currently, the median time from submission to first decision in Molecules is 13 days. The median time from submission to final publication is 30 days, which is attributed to the rapid production processing of the papers upon acceptance of the manuscript.

Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. Article Processing Charges of CHF 1800 (APC) apply to accepted papers. From the editorial office we managed to have a 10% discount over the CHF 1800 for articles accepted for publication. You may also be entitled to a discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional .
Possibly we will have a article free of charges, for one author that belong to COST-CHAOS.
