This series is committed to giving an overview of the state of the art, as well as upcoming trends, and to promoting discussion about scientific, technological and educational aspects of anti-microbial strategies.
"Anti" is here taken in the broadest sense as "against cell cycle, adhesion, or communication", when harmful for the human health, industry or economy (infectious diseases, chemotherapy, food, biomedicine, agriculture, livestock, biotechnology, water systems...). It will also cover topics on antimicrobial resistance, (early) microbial and resistance detection, enhancement of innate defenses against pathogens, as well as methods and techniques.
The book will be composed of chapters written by active researchers using original research materials, but presented in a way accessible to a public beyond those ones who are specialists in the topic dealt.
It is the main goal of this approach to take full pedagogical advantage of many research materials that researchers manage around the world but which are outside the scope of more specialized scholarly publications.
This call for papers is aimed to all those researchers who are active in any of the following themes:
Please, take some time to read the proposed list of topics for this book.
Education-oriented original research papers and mini-reviews are especially welcome, although more "regular" research papers might also be suitable if the addressed topic is clearly exposed for non-specialists. Mini-reviews can be thematic in nature, or focused on the activity of a specific research group. In this latter case, the work should provide an integrated view of the research carried out by that group across the years.
If you are interested in submitting a chapter proposal, please read the Instructions for authors section.
Abstract submission deadline: 10 January 2017
Chapter submission deadline: 17 May 2017
