Special Bacterial pathogens Journal (SBPJ) will accept for consideration previously unpublished and original articles about diagnosis, prevention, management and control of diseases associated with the following microorganisms hereafter called special pathogens which includes but not limited to: Staphylococcus and related organisms; Streptococcus; Enterococcus and other Gram positive cocci; Bacillus; Corynebacterium; Listeria, Erysipelothrix and other Gram positive Bacicili; Neisseria; Enterobacteriaceae; Vibrio, Aeromonas and Plesiomonas; Campylobacter and Helicobacter; Pseodomonas and related organisms; Bordotella, Francissella, and Brucella; Pateurellaceae; Other Gram negative baccili; Anaerobic Gram positive cocci and non spore forming bacilli; Clostridium; Anaerobic Gram negative bacilli; Nocardia, Rhodococcus, and related Actinomycetes; Mycobacterium; Treponema, Borrelia and Leptospira; Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma; Rickettsia, Ehrlichia, Coxiella; Chlamydia and all bacteria involved in human, animal and plant diseases not easily detected or commonly misdiagnosed during routine investigation. Other manuscripts which may be considered for publication include about: Antibacterial agents, mechanism of bacterial pathogenesis, laboratory diagnosis of bacteria infections, role bacteria in the induction and progression of diseases, innovations in host bacterial interactions. They are special because they are avoidable, easily missed in routine diagnosis, neglected, emerging, re-emerging, non-responsive or refractile to conventional treatment, prevention and control; endemic to particular population, location. If authors can prove that a normal floral has played a special role in causing a disease process, then such paper may be considered for publication in Special Bacterial Pathogens Journal (SBPJ).
Papers accepted for consideration may include but not limited to papers which:
- Provides answers to unanswered public health, socio-demographic, socio-economic, Biomedical, Pathological and Clinical questions regarding the transmission dynamics and population structure of special pathogens involved in tropical diseases.
- Describes innovative ways for early detection (Diagnostic tools), prevention (Vaccine) and control (management) of disease associated with special bacteria pathogens
- Outlines the role of vectors in the transmission of special bacteria pathogens and associated diseases
- Elucidates the science behind host-microbial interactions that will ultimately improve current knowledge on diagnosis prevention and control of diseases associated with special bacteria pathogens
- Illuminates the phenotypic markers/predictors of host colonization/infections with special bacteria pathogens and how this knowledge will lead to effective forecast prevention and control of diseases associated with special bacteria pathogens.
- Depicts the molecular markers/predictors of host colonization/infections with special bacteria pathogens and how this knowledge will lead to effective forecast prevention and control of diseases associated with special bacteria pathogens.
- Explains diagnostic approaches leading to better prevention and control of special pathogens including but not limited to: new media discovery or improvement of existing ones, genomics of diseases, population genetics and development of rapid diagnostic sticks.
- Highlights modern approaches in the use of immune-, chemo-, radio, bio, herbal-therapies for prevention and control diseases associated with special bacteria pathogens
Prior to publication, all manuscripts, with the exception of Editorials and Letters to the Editors, undergo peer review. The Editorial Board may decline a paper on the basis of internal review and rapidly return the manuscript, usually within three weeks
