Today sees the launch of Gut Pathogens, bringing the number of journals published by BioMed Central to a total of 200, covering a broad range of subjects in biology and medicine. Gut Pathogens is a new open access journal publishing articles on all aspects of the biology and pathogenesis of bacterial, parasitic and viral infections of the gut, including their diagnosis and clinical management.
Gut Pathogens is the official journal of The International Society for Genomic and Evolutionary Microbiology (ISOGEM) and is supported by an internationally renowned Editorial Board. Editors-in-Chief Niyaz Ahmed, Francis Megraud and Leonardo Sechi detail in their launch Editorial how they hope that an open access journal in this field will provide a high-quality forum for research on enteric infections of humans and animals, facilitating the practice of preventative and social medicine for the benefit of the patients.
