75th anniversary

From the very first meeting of the Microbiology Society Council a journal was discussed, but due to rationing from the second world war, the Journal of General Microbiology was not launched until two years later. Since 1947, the landscape of microbiology research has changed dramatically and the profile of publications, authors, and research topics in Microbiology has changed with it. In 2022, discover more about the history of the journal and the people and articles that played a role in its journey.
