Frontiers in Microbiology
Frontiers in Microbiology publishes articles on the most outstanding discoveries across a wide research spectrum of Microbiology. The mission of the journal is to bring all relevant Microbiology areas together on a single platform.
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Microbiology welcome submission of the following tier 1 articles: Book Review, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Microbiology, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer reviewed by the associate and review editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will be subject to the Frontiers evaluation system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a prestigious Frontiers Focused Review - a tier 2 article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Microbiology.
