The world's most-cited Microbiology journal
The mission of Fungi and their Interactions is to bring the different fields of mycology together, with the ultimate goal of publishing research that makes a difference to people’s lives. Mycology spans agricultural, medical and applied industrial fields, yet it is a poorly represented biological field in colleges and universities. This section aims to create a single platform for the different fields of mycology where researchers can learn from one another, so that human, animal and plant life can be improved.
We aim to publish significant research findings on all aspects of mycology to enhance our ability to decipher the nature of the complex interactions of fungi. This includes fungal pathogens and mycotoxins, host-fungal interactions in humans, animals and plants, fungal biotechnology, fungi in agriculture, fungal biodiversity and taxonomic and phylogenetic studies.
Authors submitting work aimed specifically towards fungal pathogens in a clinical sense, for example vaccine studies, novel drug and treatment approaches and strategies, mechanisms of drug resistance, diagnostics, and immunotherapy, may also consider the section Fungal Pathogenesis in the Cellular and Infection Microbiology journal.

Fungi and Their Interactions welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Fungi and Their Interactions, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Fungi and Their Interactions 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 Microbiology.
