Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
Bacteria and Host is a specialty section within Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, publishing rigorously peer-reviewed research that advances our knowledge on the interactions between bacterial pathogens and their host at the cellular and organism levels. The host can be animals, single cells, or organoid cultures, and should aim to highlight the relevance to human health and disease.
Bacteria and Host publishes research focusing on the interactions between bacterial pathogens and their host at the cellular and organism levels. The host can be animals, complex tissue, organoid cultures, or single cells, preferably with relevance to human health and disease. The host cell responses to bacterial infection involve cellular, vesicular, organellar, biochemical and biological modulations.
If the main focus of the paper is on vaccine development and infection prevention, rather than cell host and bacteria interactions it should be submitted to Vaccines and Molecular Therapeutics, Frontiers in Immunology Studies focused on molecular bacterial pathogenesis, in which host cell modulations in response to infection is not the focus of the studies, should be submitted to Molecular Bacterial Pathogenesis.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Bacteria and Host welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Bacteria and Host, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Bacteria and Host will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering 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 Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all 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 Cellular and Infection Microbiology.
