Aims and scope

International Microbiology aims to advance and disseminate research in the fields of basic and applied microbiology among scientists around the world. A broad interpretation of the term ‘microbiology’ is a distinguishing feature of International Microbiology, and as such it includes eukaryotic microorganisms (protists, yeast, molds). In addition to peer-reviewed, original research and invited review articles, the journal publishes articles on pioneering microbiologists and topics related to the history and sociology of this key discipline, as well as comments on new findings in microbiology.
Hypothesis driven research articles are encouraged. Descriptive articles without much novelty or merely descriptive articles will not be considered for publication.

International Microbiology encourages submissions in the following areas:

  • Description of new microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, archaea, protists, yeasts, molds)
  • Microbial genetics, physiology, and ecology
  • Microbial pathogenesis
  • Microbial applications (environmental, soil, industrial, food and medical microbiology, biodeterioration, bioremediation, biotechnology)
  • Comments and research articles on outstanding microbiologists and new findings in microbiology

International Microbiology is the official journal of the Spanish Society for Microbiology.
