FEMS Yeast Research
As one of the five FEMS Microbiology, free to publish, print and online journals, FEMS Yeast Research offers efficient and thorough review and publication of excellent papers that are original and provide a significant contribution to fundamental and applied aspects of all areas of yeast research.
The Editors of FEMS Yeast Research aim to publish high-quality papers that are original and provide a significant contribution to the field of yeast research and will select for publication only those manuscripts deemed to be of major relevance to the field. The journal contains Research Articles and MiniReviews on fundamental and applied aspects of all areas of yeast research, including yeast physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, genomics, biodiversity, ecology, fundamental research on clinically important yeasts, molecular diagnostics, spoilage, industrial applications, fermentation and biotechnology. In the area of biodiversity, single species descriptions will not be considered for publication except for those species that have a particular impact in disciplines such as clinical microbiology, biotechnology or ecology. Scientists using yeast as a model organism are welcome to submit their manuscript, particularly if this article has direct relevance to the yeast community. Papers can deal with any yeast or yeast-like organism.
The editorial policy for FEMS Yeast Research states that all submitted papers should be complete in themselves and adequately supported by experimental detail; they should not be preliminary versions of communications to be published elsewhere. Descriptions of new methods are acceptable, and the Editors welcome papers that put forward new hypotheses. However, papers that provide confirmatory evidence or merely extend observations firmly established in one species or field site to another will not be accepted unless there are strong reasons for doing so. Members of the Editorial Boards and other appropriate experts will referee the papers. Editors handling papers will independently make decisions on acceptance, revision or rejection based on the referees’ reports. The Chief Editors or Editors will usually reject papers outside the scope of the journal with an immediate decision. Authors who feel that there are substantial grounds for disagreement with an Editor’s decision should contact the Chief Editor, whose decision will be final. Authors who wish to withdraw their manuscript (at any stage of the process) should contact their Editor.
If you think your work is of a high standard and fits within the scope of the journal, then FEMS Yeast Research welcomes your submission.
