What is EcoSal Plus?

EcoSal Plus is an online-only review journal that publishes an ever-growing body of expert reviews covering virtually all aspects of E. coli, Salmonella, and other members of the Enterobacteriaceae family and their use as model microbes for biological explorations. These thoughtful reviews provide the integrated background needed for most microbiology investigations and are essential reading for research scientists.

EcoSal Plus is divided into eleven domains.
Domain 1: Historical Perspectives (6 articles)
Domain 2: Cell Architecture and Growth (8 articles)
Domain 3: Metabolism (55 articles)
Domain 4: Synthesis and Processing of Macromolecules (40 articles)
Domain 5: Responding to the Environment (8 articles)
Domain 6: Evolution and Genomics (5 articles)
Domain 7: Genetics and Genetic Tools (5 articles)
Domain 8: Pathogenesis (35 articles)
Domain 9: Life in Communities and the Environment (4 articles)
Domain 10: Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (3 articles)
Domain 11: Antibiotic Mechanisms and Resistance NEW (3 articles)

What is the history of EcoSal Plus?

Two print editions of Escherichia coli and Salmonella: Cellular and Molecular Biology, which compiled knowledge of these organisms and served as an essential reference to researchers, were published by ASM Press. The second edition, published in 1996, contained two volumes and nearly 3,000 pages, having grown considerably since the first edition. To allow for continued growth, the book was succeeded by an online-only reference called EcoSal.org that was available by annual subscription but had neither ISBN nor ISSN. In 2013, EcoSal Plus was established as a journal and began publishing these reviews.

Does EcoSal Plus accept uninvited submissions?

Yes. In addition to soliciting papers, the Editorial Board considers submitted manuscripts that significantly add to our knowledge of E. coli and its enteric cousins. The focus of EcoSal Plus is scholarly review topics, rather than primary data.

Is EcoSal Plus open access?

EcoSal Plus is a subscription journal. Authors can pay a fee to allow open access to their article. Unless otherwise stated, open access articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial Noderivatives 4.0 International CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license.
