Antibacterial peptides are part of the arsenal of host defense peptides that are present in a variety of “simple” and “complex” life forms, from prokaryotes to eucaryotes. Because of their particular antibacterial potential, they are currently emerging as candidate therapeutic agents against both pathogenic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including those resistant to conventional antibiotics. This Special Issue deals with all aspects of antibacterial peptides (from natural or non natural sources), from their discovery to their structural/functional characterization, as well as their evaluation in clinical trials. Potential contributors are strongly encouraged to submit their work(s) in this important field of scientific research.
Dr. Jean-Marc Sabatier
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Antibiotics 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 2900 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.
