About the book

Staphylococcus are Gram-positive bacteria that can be present in a wide range of hosts, that may simply be colonizing, or that may be causing mild to fatal infections. So Staphylococcus are involved in a wide variety of diseases and are the cause of multiple pathologies. The diversity of its pathologies depends mainly on the large number of virulence factors it has, in addition to having resistance to multiple antibiotics. Staphylococcus can be found both in hospital settings and in the community or on farms. The study of Staphylococcal infections is of great importance worldwide; its implications in both human and animal infections are widely studied globally. This book will aim to contribute to the knowledge and study of Staphylococcal infections in both humans and animals and to try to give an overview of the factors involved in the epidemiology, virulence, and pathogenesis of these microorganisms.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
