Aims and scope
The idea to create Current Bioscience came about when I realized the difficulty of publishing scientific articles in open-access peer-reviewed journals. This is due to the fact that the most serious journals published only a low percentage of the articles they received and the high publication rates (APC) that in many journals exceed € 2,000. It is clear that there are now ways to make articles available on the internet, such as in repositories and preprint platforms. However, in the end, an article must go through a peer review process to gain recognition for its quality. This means that there are many scientific articles of good enough quality not published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Therefore, Current Bioscience aims to promote and contribute to the publication of research studies. The journal is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in February 2021 and publishes research articles, letters, and reviews. Current Bioscience highlights the most significant advances in different fields of biosciences, but with a special focus on the field of microbiology and immunology including basic and clinical studies.
Example of some topic of interest for Current Bioscience:
- Molecular Pathogenesis
- Cellular Microbiology: Pathogen-Host Cell Molecular Interactions
- Bacterial Infections
- Host-Associated Microbial Communities in Health and Disease
- Host Response and Inflammation
- Fungal and Parasitic Infections
- Microbial Immunity and Vaccines
- Molecular Genomics
- Interaction of Microbial Communities with Their Host
