Microbiologia Medica

Microbiologia Medica (MM) is the official publication of the Italian Association of Clinical Microbiologists (AMCLI). It publishes peer-reviewed papers that present basic and applied research relevant to therapy and diagnostics in the fields of: bacteriology, mycology, virology, parasitology, mycobacteriology, infectious diseases, chemotherapy, antimicrobial agents, immunology, autoimmunity and epidemiology.
The journal publishes Editorials, Reviews, Original Articles, Clinical Cases, Short Communications and Letters to the Editor.
MM is devoted to the diffusion of any progress related to all aspects of clinical microbiology. Reports about new techniques, methods and processes dealing with quality control procedures are also considered. Papers on isolation, identification and epidemiology of microorganisms as index of nosocomial infections, or reports on microorganisms collected from animals and environment as vehicles of antibiotic resistant strains are also welcome.

The journal is completely free – as there are no charges for submission or publication – and provides immediate Open Access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Submit your paper to our journal!

Open Access journals are an ideal platform for the publication of your research enabling you to reach the widest available audience of biomedical professionals in your field of expertise. Publication in our Journal means that your research articles will be available for free access online being immediately citable. Our Journal shortens the time needed before publication, offers a high quality peer-review system, highly-professional scientific copyediting, DOI assignment, and submission to many online directories.
