New collection "Antimicrobial Use and Antimicrobial Resistance in humans, foods, animals, and environment"

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is increasing and causing tremendous economic losses and global public health concerns. Over the past decade, AMR has been recognized as a critical issue by the World Health Organization (WHO) as one of the greatest threats to public health worldwide. The European Commission (EC) adopted the "EU One Health Action Plan against AMR" in June 2017 to bring solutions to tackle Antimicrobial Resistance by reducing its emergency and its consequences on public health. Several studies have attempted to investigate the impact and cost of AMR in human health; however, more investigations of AMR in veterinary medicine and environmental health sectors are still required. 

It is our pleasure to announce that the German Journal of Microbiology (ISSN: 2749-0149), Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Dr. Thierry NAAS, and the German Journal of Veterinary Research (ISSN 2703-1322), Editor-In-Chief: Prof. Dr. Heinrich Neubauer and Prof. Dr. Hafez M. Hafez generated a collection on AMR which is focusing on antimicrobial use and the emergence of AMR in humans, animals, food, and the environment. 
Research articles, review articles, short communications, and editorials are invited. The deadline for manuscript submissions is 30 May 2023. The APC is €1800; however, the payment capability will not be a barrier. If the authors or their institution can't afford the costs, they may apply for a complete or partial waiver at the time of submission. Please download the APC waiver request from the author resources to explain the reasons for your request and send it to [email protected]
Manuscripts should be submitted online by the deadline. All submissions will pass a single-blind peer-review process, and all accepted papers will be published online in the journal (as soon as accepted).
