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 distinctive feature of International Microbiology and , as such, it includes eukaryotic microorganisms (protists, yeasts, molds). In addition to original peer-reviewed 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-based research articles are encouraged. Descriptive articles without much novelty or merely descriptive articles will not be considered for publication.
Coverage extends to topics such as microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, archaea, protists, yeasts, molds); microbial biology (genetics, physiology, ecology, pathogenesis); microbial applications (environmental, soil, industrial, food and medical microbiology, biodeterioration, bioremediation, biotechnology) and commentary on leading microbiologists and new discoveries in microbiology.
