X-AMR

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a cross-disciplinary issue, with ground-breaking studies currently bringing together clinicians and modellers, veterinary and soil scientists, microbiologists and anthropologists. Yet finding a home for the unique publications from this research is difficult. The Microbiology Society is providing such a home with X-AMR, a cross-journal, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and we invite submissions in the form of research papers, mini reviews or commentaries.

The importance of cross-disciplinary research to combat antimicrobial resistance

 Tasha Mellins-Cohen (corresponding) (2018)
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a cross-disciplinary issue, with ground-breaking studies currently bringing together clinicians and modellers, veterinary and soil scientists, microbiologists and anthropologists. Yet finding a home for the unique publications from this research is often difficult. The Microbiology Society is providing such a home with a new pop-up journal for cross-disciplinary research on antimicrobial resistance: X-AMR . This initiative has been inspired by the recent prioritization of AMR as a global health issue by the World Health Organisation and UN Global Health Assembly, collaborative efforts by research funders focusing on interventions underpinned by cross-disciplinary collaboration, as well as a desire to support an emerging community of interdisciplinary researchers. By providing a home for high-quality outputs of these essential cross-disciplinary collaborations, we aim to improve AMR research by uniting the many strands into a stronger whole.
