About Stresses

Aims and Scope

Stresses (ISSN 2673-7140) publishes top-quality research covering all aspects of how biological systems—including humans, animals, plants, algae, fungi, bacteria, and viruses—respond to abiotic and biotic stresses. Submissions from basic and applied research are welcome, as long as they are based on a clearly defined mechanistic hypothesis. Molecular, biochemical, physiological, morphological, (ultra)structural, cellular, histo-anatomical, morphogenetic, organismic, community and ecological aspects are of interest to the journal, provided that response(s) to stress factor(s) are clearly focused in the submitted work. Stress induced by climate change, exposure to xenochemicals and toxins, infection or injury, as well as phyto/bioremediation aspects, are positively considered for publication. Review manuscripts are encouraged but they must be a critical review of existing literature and not just a summary. Stresses is a Gold Open Access Journal, and all submitted manuscripts will be subjected to a thorough peer-reviewing process.
