The #1 most cited and #1 largest open-access journal in Immunology
Molecular Innate Immunity welcomes submissions on the molecular, cellular, and functional aspects of innate immunity, ranging from the analysis of effects of the innate immune system on the maintenance of tolerance, to the induction and propagation of diseases in humans and other living species.
Molecular Innate Immunity seeks to attract publications on the molecular, cellular and functional aspects of innate immunity. The section is dedicated to the analysis of effects of the innate immune system on the maintenance of tolerance, as well as the induction and propagation of diseases, not only in humans but also in other living species. More specifically the topics to be covered include:
1) Molecular mechanisms of innate immunity;
2) Molecular mechanisms of innate immune regulation;
3) Molecular aspects of innate immune factors in cellular receptor interactions and cell-cell signaling;
4) Soluble mediators of the innate immune response including natural antibodies;
5) Innate Immune modulators/therapeutics;
7) Innate immune mechanisms of autoimmunity in diseases that interest rheumatologists, endocrinologists and nephrologists;
8) Effects of aberrant innate immune responses on host tissues;
9) Dysbalance and deficiencies of innate immune regulation on vascular systems and organs;
10) Molecular mechanisms and functions of complement, pentraxins and defensins;
11) Innate receptors for microbes;
12) Innate immunity interaction with the coagulation system;

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Molecular Innate Immunity welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Classification, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Molecular Innate Immunity, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Molecular Innate Immunity will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Immunology.
