Archives of Microbiology publishes papers on all areas of basic research in microbiology.

Research papers must make a significant and original contribution to
microbiology and be of interest to a broad readership. The results of any
experimental approach that meets these objectives are welcome, particularly
biochemical, molecular genetic, physiological, and/or physical investigations into
microbial cells and their interactions with their environments, including their eukaryotic hosts.

Mini-reviews in areas of special topical interest and papers on medical microbiology, ecology and systematics, including description of novel taxa, are also published.

Theoretical papers and those that report on the analysis or 'mining' of data are
acceptable in principle if new information, interpretations, or hypotheses
emerge.


Details concerning the submission and publication procedures:
- No Page Charges
- No Fees for Online Color Images
- Optional Open Access Publication Fee (APC) – USD 3260,- / Euro 2570,- / GBP 2160,-

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    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.

  • Description of New Taxa

    Authors are encouraged to provide full genome sequencing data along with their description of a new taxon. Click here for more details.
