Microbiologia Medica (MM) is the official publication of the Italian Association of Clinical Microbiologists (AMCLI). It publishes peer-reviewed papers that present basic and applied research relevant to therapy and diagnostics in the fields of: bacteriology, mycology, virology, parasitology, mycobacteriology, infectious diseases, chemotherapy, antimicrobial agents, immunology, autoimmunity and epidemiology. The journal publishes Editorials, Reviews, Original Articles, Clinical Cases, Short Communications and Letters to the Editor. MM is devoted to the diffusion of any progress related to all aspects of clinical microbiology. Reports about new techniques, methods and processes dealing with quality control procedures are also considered. Papers on isolation, identification and epidemiology of microorganisms as index of nosocomial infections, or reports on microorganisms collected from animals and environment as vehicles of antibiotic resistant strains are also welcome.
The journal is completely free (there are no charges for submission and/or publication), since it is supported by institutional funds and provides immediate Open Access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
