Aims & Scope

Microbes and Infection publishes 12 peer-reviewed issues per year in all fields of infection and immunity, covering the different levels of host-microbe interactions, and in particular:

  • the molecular biology and cell biology of the crosstalk between hosts (human and experimental animals) and microbes (viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi), including molecular virulence and evasion mechanisms.
  • the immune response to infection, including pathogenesis and host susceptibility.
  • emerging human infectious diseases.
  • molecular epidemiology/genetics of host pathogen interactions.
  • vaccine development, including novel strategies and adjuvants.
Clinical studies, accounts of clinical trials and biomarker studies in infectious diseases are within the scope of the journal.

Microbes and Infection publishes articles on human pathogens or pathogens of model systems. However, articles on other microbes can be published if they contribute to our understanding of basic mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions. Purely descriptive and preliminary studies are discouraged.

Reviews on recent progress in the field are commissioned by editors.

Special issues focus on the present knowledge of a virulent microbe and the disease it causes, the immune response in infectious disease, or on critical issues relevant to the scope of the journal.

The journal is just entering its 16th year of publication, and Essential Science IndicatorsSM (ESI) states that "Microbes and Infection has had a significant impact in the field of Immunology."
