This Special Issue is dedicated on “Antibiotic Resistance Mechanisms”, which covers all fields related to the identification, epidemiology, and detection of resistance genotypes or phenotypes, both in Gram negatives and Gram positives. In particular, manuscripts dealing with characterization of emerging resistance traits and their genetic backbones will be very welcome, such as those reporting or evaluating detection techniques aimed to facilitate or improve the current diagnostic tools. Additionally, all studies characterizing the mechanisms leading to multidrug resistance (accumulation of different resistance traits) will nicely fit with the scope of that special issue. Finally, studies dealing with therapeutical strategies to fight against infections caused by multidrug resistant bacteria will also be extremely appreciated.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. 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.
