Access Microbiology is the newest journal from the Microbiology Society. This unique, fully open access publication covers the full spectrum of microbial life, and all approaches to the science of microbiology. One of the aspects of Access Microbiology that makes it unique is the editorial board; early career researchers who want to develop editorial skills are paired with experienced editors who they can go to for queries and advice on editorial matters. We asked mentee Dr Helina Marshall and mentor Professor Jeff Cole about their respective roles and experiences so far.
