Biaya Publikasi Artikel di Jurnal MDPI Seharga Motor Baru

Nazroel.id – Jurnal open access Applied Sciences dari penerbit Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institut (MDPI) memiliki Article Processing Fee sebesar 1500 franc swiss atau sekitar 21 juta rupiah lebih, cukup untuk membeli motor matic baru.

Pengalaman pertama mempublikasikan hasil penelitian di MDPI. Ini berawal dari email undangan untuk menulis di edisi khusus “Recent Advances in Bioadhesives for Tissue Repair”. Kebetulan memang topik yang sesuai dan perlu output publikasi untuk hibah dari Kemenristekdikti.

Undangan untuk Publikasi

Setelah melihat track record jurnal Applied Sciences yang merupakan Q1 Scopus, tanpa ragu lagi segera mengirimkan manuscript dengan tidak menyadari biaya APC 1500 franc.

Comments and Suggestions for Authors
Wathoni et al reported an a-mangostin/chitosan/alginate hydrogel film for RAS treatment. Given the unmet clinical needs to develop mucoadhesive materials for treating various ulcerative diseases in the oral cavity or esophagus, the topic of this manuscript is of interest. The use of the chitosan alginate to fabricate hydrogel films to achieve the mucoadhesion and local release of mangostin is relatively new and of translation relevance. The work is recommended to publish with the following revisions.

In the introduction section, previous work on the mucoadhesive hydrogels should be critically reviewed, especially the chitosan-based hydrogel systems. The abstract should be more concise.

Figure 2, A scale bar should be provided on all the images.

Did the authors do FTIR to confirm the existence of the drug in films? The use of XRD is not convincible.

Why do the peaks at 200-240 ºC of Alg in Figure 3b disappear in the final ChAlg HF?

Why was the in vitro release study designed for just 2 hours? Can the authors comment on this?

For the mucoadhesive study, which side of the film was moistened? The one with the drug or another side? How many films were attached to one glass object?
The sentence started at Line 179 is confusing as it was already mentioned in the previous sentence that the mucosa was glued on the glass. What does the author mean that the film was hung?

Comments and Suggestions for Authors
the ms requires only few modifications, in particular I suggest to modify conclusions section in order to put more emphasis on the obtained resulsts, as well as I belive the abstract section should be less detailed.

Bisa dikatakan Minor Revision, diberi waktu 7 hari untuk menjawabnya.

Tidak lama dari resubmit artikel revisi, muncul email bahwa artikel diterima, dan langsung memberikan penagihan untuk membayar 1500 franc. Uniknya bisa dirubah tagihannya ke USD.

APC MDPI

Sedikit nakal dengan mencoba meminta diskon, tapi sayangnya dijawab tanpa ampun, bahwa tidak ada diskon dengan penjelasan terkait kebijakan open akses, dimana biaya publikasi dibebankan kepada author.

Dibayarlah dengan menggunakan kartu kredit VISA, bila menggunakan pay pal dikenakan biaya tambahan 5%.

Sehari setelah membayar, langsung dikirim proof reader untuk artikel dan diberi waktu 3 hari untuk perbaikan.

Sehari setelah resubmit perbaikan page proof, langsung muncul email bahwa artikel telah terbit di https://www.mdpi.com/2076-3417/9/23/5235/htm

Ini memang pengalaman pertama membayar jurnal yang cukup mahal di MDPI. Sebelumnya publikasi di Heliyon – Elsevier dengan biaya 1500 USD.

Paling mahal adalah di International Journal of Biological and Macromolecules – Elsevier senilai 3000 usd, 2 kali lipat dari MDPI. Tapi itu dibayar oleh promotor dari Kumamoto University.
