Equality and Diversity Policy – people should be treated with dignity and respect, with value being placed on ensuring diversity is reflected in our organization
Anti-Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination Policy – bullying and harassment of any kind is not tolerated
Reporting Process – if we fail to meet your expectation, or our own high standards of behaviour, we want to hear about it.
Journal Policies – we value and protect academic integrity and editorial independence.
This Thematic Issue of FEMS Microbiology Letters contains eight papers based on oral presentations or posters presented at the 12th International Conference on Halophilic Microorganisms – Halophiles 2019, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The location for the event recognizes the great diversity of hypersaline environments in Romania and the rich history of the exploration of the microbial diversity in those environments. This Thematic Issue explores the latest developments on the microorganisms living in these unique environments.
