Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
Clinical Microbiology, a specialty section within Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, publishes high quality research pertaining to the diagnosis of human and animal microbial disease, encompassing the medical consequences of pathogenic interactions with a host. This includes, but is not limited to, emerging and prevalent clinically important viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens, such as Mycobacteria and Rickettsia.
Approaches may include addressing molecular diagnostics, antimicrobial resistance and molecular epidemiology that directly pertains to human and animal clinical disease. We welcome manuscripts on new approaches to diagnostic serology, an expanding field with massive importance with regards to clinical investigation.
This specialty section showcases the fundamental research underpinning advances in the field, facilitating novel approaches in precision medicine in infectious disease.
Articles which focus on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of infection without direct clinical relevance should be submitted to our corresponding specialty sections within Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology. Articles that focus on treatment and prevention, or solely focus on surveillance should be submitted to Frontiers in Public Health.
Indexed in: PubMed, MEDLINE, PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, Science Citation Index Expanded
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Clinical Microbiology welcomes submissions of the following article types: 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 Clinical Microbiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Clinical Microbiology 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.
