Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fungal stress biology is an important but still relatively understudied field of mycology. Regardless of their lifestyle, fungi often face harsh environmental conditions to which they must adapt in order to survive. Fungi are remarkably successful in adapting to a wide spectrum of environmental stress conditions, which allows them to occupy a wide range of ecological niches. This Special Issue aims to expand and summarize today's knowledge regarding the elements and regulation of fungal stress defense systems, covering both general and taxon-specific features. In addition, this Special Issue aims to focus on new results promoting innovative applied research in various fields, including the development of highly stress-resistant industrial strains, new types of antifungal agents, and new technologies that increase the safety of the feed and food chain. It is hoped that this Special Issue will provide all interested parties with an authentic and comprehensive picture of the current and future trends in fungal stress biology research.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microorganisms 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 2700 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.
