    Abstract:

    In the two years since the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) published the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action report, the national momentum to transform undergraduate biology education has driven the Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education (JMBE)’s growth in readership and authorship. Since January 2010, the Journal has more than doubled its registered users and overall submissions have increased by nearly 40%. International presence on the Journal’s Editorial Board is currently at 13%, thanks to Research Editor Kathy M. Takayama’s work to incorporate biology educators on a global scale. The American Society for Microbiology (ASM)’s faculty training programs—such as the ASM/JGI Genomic Sciences Programs and the ASM/ NSF Biology Scholars Program—connect scholars with the Editorial Board and expose them to JMBE’s open access content. After they train and/or present at the annual ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE), our readers are poised to submit their work to JMBE. In 2012, 37% of published JMBE authors are alumni of these ASM programs.
