Special Issue "Antibiotics and Antimicrobials Resistance: Mechanisms and New Strategies to Fight Resistant Bacteria"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
In the context of global emergence of multidrug-resistant bacteria, antibiotic resistance is recognized as a major public health threat affecting humans worldwide, and has become a priority for microbiological research. Therefore, understanding the biochemical and genetic basis of resistance is essential to design strategies to curtail the emergence and spread of resistance, and innovative therapeutic approaches against multidrug-resistant microorganisms have to be designed. This Special Issue aims to highlight our increased understanding of the mechanisms by which bacteria resist to antibiotics and antimicrobial molecules, as well as the identification of innovative molecules to fight bacterial pathogens which have developed a multidrug-resistance profile to clinically used antibiotics. We expect to collect original research article, short communications or review articles describing recent advances in the field of the characterization of antimicrobial activities.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- Molecular mechanisms involved in bacterial resistance
- Response to antimicrobials or antibiotics
- Biochemical and genetics studies on microorganisms to improve antimicrobials effects
- Advances in research on new and current antibiotics and relative antimicrobial agents
- Submissions on new alternatives molecules to reduce infection by anti-virulence, anti-biofilm or antimicrobial potentiators mechanisms are especially encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antibiotics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
