In vitro fermentation is a critical technology for studying and evaluating feed nutritional value, nutrient metabolism mechanism and fermentation state. In vitro fermentation includes simulated rumen in vitro fermentation, in vitro gas production, in vitro microbial fermentation, in vitro enzyme fermentation, combined two-step fermentation, etc. Over the years, in vitro fermentation has evaluated the feeding value of a large number of feeds to ruminants and monogastric animals such as swine. It not only enriches the feed database, but also makes an important contribution to the development and utilization of microbial resources and the improvement of feed utilization rate.
Substrate, microorganism, enzyme and fermentation state are important elements of in vitro fermentation, and equipment and fermentation regulation of in vitro fermentation are also important guarantees for fermentation. Therefore, the goal of this Special Issue is to publish both recent innovative research results and review papers on in vitro fermentation with nutrients or new feed resources. Review and research papers on the development of novel enzymes, microbial strains, and fermentation equipment are also of interest. If you would like to contribute a review paper, please contact one of the editors to discuss the relevance of the topic before submitting the manuscript.

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. Fermentation is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
