About Fermentation


Fermentation (ISSN 2311-5637) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access, online journal publishing high quality original research papers, review articles, short communications and technical notes on all research areas of fermentation related to new and emerging products, processes and technologies including biopharmaceuticals and biotech drugs.

The journal aims at a broad multidisciplinary readership, which includes both academia and industries, and covers broad areas of research and technological advances on all aspects of fermentation. We aim to encourage researchers to publish their experimental, theoretical, and computational results in as much detail as necessary. We thus restrict neither paper length nor number of figures and tables.


Fully comprehensive in its scope, the journal coverage includes:

  • Fermentation process and product development
  • Strain improvement
  • Bioprocess and metabolic engineering
  • Fermentation food and beverages
  • Scale up of fermentation processes
  • Downstream processing of fermentation products
  • Microbial physiology and metabolism
  • Applied genetics and molecular biotechnology
  • Genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and systems biology
  • Bioinformatics
  • Bioreactor design, monitoring, biosensors and instrumentation
  • Biosafety and biosecurity
  • Biopharmaceuticals and biotech drugs


Fermentation technologists, biochemical engineers, microbiologists, industrial biotechnologists, combinatorial chemists, enzyme technologists, environmental scientists, food processors, molecular biologists, pharmaceutical scientists and Agro- and food biotechnologists.
