Microbiology, is now fully Open Access (OA) – the first of our journals to move from a hybrid to a fully OA model. The journal reflects the diversity and importance of microbiology in addressing current global challenges, such as food security, environmental sustainability and health, by publishing fundamental and applied research across the breadth of the field.  Microbiology publishes high-quality original research on bacteria, fungi, yeast, protists, archaea, algae, parasites, phages and other microscopic life forms.
