Since 1985, Symbiosis publishes original research that contributes to the understanding of symbiotic interactions in a wide range of associations at the molecular, cellular and organismic level. Reviews and short communications on well-known or new symbioses are welcomed as are book reviews and obituaries. This spectrum of papers aims to encourage and enhance interactions among researchers in this rapidly expanding field.
Topics of interest include nutritional interactions; mutual regulatory and morphogenetic effects; structural co-adaptations; interspecific recognition; specificity; ecological adaptations; evolutionary consequences of symbiosis; and methods used for symbiotic research.

Symbiosis is the proud sponsor of the recommended reading list (coming soon) for the first annual World Symbiosis Day Webinar to be hosted by the International Symbiosis Society (ISS) on July 30, 2020.
Please view the agenda and sign up for this free webinar today!
Details about a Topical Collection of mini reviews on “anthropogenic impacts on symbiotic systems” will be unveiled during the webinar. If you are interested in submitting a mini review to this Topical Collection, please contact Dr. Manju M. Gupta (ISS Vice President) or Takeesha Moerland-Torpey (Editorial Contact).
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Publication of color illustrations in both the online and printed versions is free of charge
The goals of the International Symbiosis Society are to disseminate information to the public, students, educators and researchers about symbiotic interactions, advance scientific research, and serve as a forum where researchers can interact.
