Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Featured article: Microbial imbalance in inflammatory bowel disease patients at different taxonomic levels

A new study has investigated the relationship between diversity of gut microbiomes, and the taxonomic structure of the gut microbiota, in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease compared to healthy individuals.

Gut Pathogens celebrates its 10th anniversary

Gut Pathogens launched in 2009 and its growth has followed the fast-paced developments of the field in the last ten years, from probiotics to bacterial genomics, to the rise of microbiome research. Dr. Niyaz Ahmed, Editor-in-Chief, tells us more about the success stories. 

We also look back on just some of the high quality work published by Gut Pathogens as we look forward to the next ten years

Aims and scope

Gut Pathogens publishes research on both biological and clinical aspects of the pathogens, commensals and functional microbiota of the gut, including probiotic bacteria and yeasts and their products. The journal also considers timely reports on the novel aspects of genomics, metagenomics, microbiota profiling and systems biology, as well as studies identifying new genome sequences of gut microbes.
