July 2018: Three Society Collaborations Established

In July 2018, three societies chose to establish a cooperation with MDPI journals.



ECATS International Association


Epigenetics Society



International Chair for Advanced Studies on Hydration (CIEAH)


As part of this collaboration, the members of these affiliated societies will enjoy a discount on the article processing charges (APC) when submitting articles to the corresponding journals. The collaboration goes beyond the discount benefit offered to members and includes other services as well as cross-promotions.

Further information about these societies:

The ECATS International Association was founded in 2005 as a Network of Excellence on Aviation and Environment of more than 100 researchers within the European Framework Research Programme. After 5 years of joint research and exploring closer collaboration, this ECATS Network of Excellence was transformed into the ECATS International Association, officially registered on 2 November 2010 by a [Royal Decree] of Belgium. Their website reflects the change from a network into an Association’s homepage.

The Epigenetics Society is an international scientific society open to all those interested in the epigenetics of any organism and all aspects of epigenetics, including:

  • DNA methylation;
  • DNA hydroxymethylation;
  • Chromatin modification;
  • Chromatin higher-order structure and remodeling and remodeling
  • Non-coding RNA related to chromatin structure or DNA modification.

Membership in the society is free and includes a monthly e-newsletter with “Abstracts in the Press,” conference news, job postings, and other announcements.

The International Chair for Advanced Studies on Hydration (CIEAH) was founded in October 2016 following on from the legacy of the European Hydration Institute.

The CIEAH comes under the auspices of the Research Institute of Biomedical and Health Sciences (IUIBIS), of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It aims to develop and promote research projects on human hydration and healthy lifestyles.
