Genus Staphylococcus includes several species, both coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative. Among them, Staphylococcus aureus is the most common pathogen isolated from clinical specimens, even though other staphylococcal species may be involved in a wide spectrum of infections in humans and animals.
These bacteria have emerged as important pathogens for both nosocomial and community-acquired infections in people, as well as being a severe threat in veterinary medicine, causing diseases in farm animals and pets, including birds and reptiles. Moreover, staphylococci are able to produce enterotoxins responsible for food-poisoning diseases. In the last years, the incidence of antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus isolates has increased, becoming a severe problem for infection treatment.
The aim of this Special Issue is to give a platform for practitioners and researchers operating in human and veterinary medicine can exchange information and updates.
At this purpose, we cordially invite you to submit research articles, review articles and short communications related to the various aspects of Staphylococcus infections: bacteria–host interactions, epidemiology, diagnostic procedures, therapy and prevention.

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. Microorganisms 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 2700 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.
