Increasing bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a critical problem worldwide, with many health organisations making the issue a priority for future development and research. Whilst there is a desperate need for new effective antimicrobials to be developed, it is also important to understand the mechanisms and epidemiology of the resistant pathogens currently present in the community. This collection of articles published in Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials showcases the latest research and review articles investigating the current state of antimicrobial resistance worldwide, along with those which examine potential future developments. If you would like your manuscript to be considered for this collection, please indicate so at the time of submission.
