Microbiology Spectrum

In the Spring of 2021, Microbiology Spectrum will relaunch as a new open access journal that will publish research from all domains of basic, applied and clinical microbial sciences. Rather than making subjective evaluations of potential impact, Microbiology Spectrum will publish research studies that are of high technical quality and are useful to the community. All decisions will be made by an international and diverse editorial board that fully represents the microbiology research community. The journal will provide authors with fair, rapid and rigorous peer review. In addition to studies that advance our collective understanding of microbial life, the journal will also consider:

  • -Replication studies that are useful to the field
  • -Findings that are of primary interest to smaller sub-fields within microbiology
  • -Technically robust datasets that contradict published findings
  • -Negative results of interest to microbiologists
  • -Descriptive datasets that would serve as a community resource
  • -Methodological advances and detailed experimental protocols that are of interest to microbiologists
  • -Re-analyses of large datasets that provide additional insights
  • -Experimental validation screening hits from previous reports

Topics Covered: Applied and Environmental Science, Clinical Science and Epidemiology, Ecological and Evolutionary Science, Host-Microbe Biology, Molecular Biology and Physiology, Synthetic Biology, Therapeutics and Prevention​

Opening for submissions in April 2021.
