Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fungal infections are increasing across the world. Despite the constant improvement in knowledge, training and the therapeutic management of these infections, prevalence and mortality remain high for some of them, including invasive candidiasis, aspergillosis, pneumocystosis and mucormycosis, linked in particular to an increasing proportion of subjects at risk and to delayed diagnosis. This is why it is important to develop new early detection or screening tools for human and animal fungal infections.

The aim of this Special Issue is to identify all the new techniques useful for the diagnosis of fungal infections, whether microscopic, spectrometric, molecular, bioinformatic, serological or other.

This Special Issue welcomes scientific contributions through original research articles and reviews on this topic, in order to discuss the most recent and exciting advances in this field and possibly propose diagnostic algorithms to improve the precision and the earliness of fungal diagnosis.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
