Asociación Mexicana de Microbiología adopt five Microbiology Society journals as affiliated titles

17 April 2019

The Microbiology Society and Asociación Mexicana de Microbiología, A.C. (AMM) are delighted to announce that the AMM have adopted five of the Microbiology Society journals as affiliated titles.

Founded in 1949, the AMM (asociacionmexicanamicrobiologia.org.mx) promotes and supports the teaching of microbiology throughout Mexico and engages with microbiologists around the world through their meetings on biotechnology and industrial microbiology, microbial ecology, microbial genomics, and medical microbiology.

Professor Jose L. Puente, from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) and the President of AMM, is a Section Editor for the Journal of Medical Microbiology and helped create this new collaboration.

Tasha Mellins-Cohen, Director of Publishing at the Microbiology Society, said “When an organisation like AMM wishes to offer their members an affiliated society journal it is fantastic that they can turn to us and know that the Microbiology Society will welcome them as part of our community. We have always published research from Mexican microbiologists, and look forward to publishing more from them over the coming years.”

Microbiology Society journals are led by carefully selected, prestigious Editorial Boards who ensure rigorous, high-quality peer review, aided by the Society’s in-house publishing team. Authors benefit from rapid publication times and very liberal Open Access policies, which comply with all funder and institutional Open Access mandates worldwide, and are not subject to page limits, page charges or colour fees.
