Introducing “Feature Highlights” Section in MDPI Blog

We are introducing this new section “Feature Highlights” to the MDPI blog. We will periodically announce new features that we add to our websites, or new services that we offer to the scholarly community through this new channel.

To start off, we are pleased to introduce the newly launched „Comments“ feature on Sciforum. This new feature enables reading and leaving comments on any scientific paper published (currently with the only restriction being that the publication has a DOI number assigned).

To read or start a discussion thread on any publication, simply go to, search for the paper by either using the DOI number, title, keywords or authors names, and simply start to write your comment. You do not need a user account with Sciforum to use this feature, and we allow anonymous commenting (but please remain polite).

In the next few days we will also be launching a small JavaScript applet which Publishers can easily introduce into their websites to allow their readers to display or leave comments on papers published on the Publishers‘ platforms.
