[Discussion] Publishing on special issue of Sensors (MDPI)
I was planning of publishing a paper on a special issue of Sensors (MDPI) that seems to be strongly related to my work. After having a better look I’ve found hundreds of other special issues, all with similar deadlines and on very similar topics. Also, this journal seems to have a very rapid publication process, with “first decision provided to authors approximately 19.8 days after submission“. I’ve read some pretty bad things in the past about MDPI, but I always thought that Sensors was a serious journal, and I often find interesting research on it. So now I’m really confused. What do you think about MDPI Sensors? Is it worth publishing there, or would it be a waste?
