Aims and scope

Archives of Microbiology is a broad readership, international, peer-reviewed journal, publishing significant and original contributions in all areas of basic microbiology research. 

- Welcomes biochemical, molecular, genetic, physiological, and/or physical investigations into microbial cells and their interactions with their environments,
- Publishes Reviews and Mini-Reviews, Original Research papers, Brief Reports and Comments,
- Theoretical papers and data analysis or 'mining' reports are acceptable if they provide new information, interpretations, or hypotheses.



- Microbial Diversity and Ecology:

Investigations into the diversity, distribution, and ecological roles of microorganisms in various natural and engineered environments. Studies on microbial communities, their interactions, and responses to environmental changes.

- Microbial Physiology and Genetics:

Research on microbial physiology, metabolism, and adaptation mechanisms. Studies on microbial genetics, genomics, and molecular biology, including mechanisms of gene regulation and genome evolution.

- Microbial Pathogenesis and Host-Microbe Interactions:

Exploration of the mechanisms by which pathogenic microorganisms cause diseases in humans, animals, and plants. Investigations into host-microbe interactions, including the immune response and microbial virulence factors.

- Microbial Biotechnology and Industrial Microbiology:

Advances in the application of microorganisms for biotechnological and industrial purposes, including bioprocess engineering and microbial production of biofuels, pharmaceuticals, and enzymes.

- Microbial Biogeochemistry and Environmental Microbiology:

Research on the roles of microorganisms in biogeochemical cycles, such as the carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur cycles. Studies on the impact of microorganisms on environmental processes, including bioremediation and microbial-driven nutrient cycling.

- Microbial Evolution and Phylogeny:

Investigations into the evolutionary history of microorganisms and the development of phylogenetic relationships among different microbial groups. Studies on the origin and evolution of microbial traits and adaptations.

- Methods and Techniques in Microbiology:

Development and optimization of novel techniques, tools, and methodologies for the study and manipulation of microorganisms. Reviews and evaluations of emerging technologies in microbiological research.

- Microbial Biomedicine and Therapeutics:

Research on the use of microorganisms for therapeutic purposes, including probiotics, microbial-based therapies, and microbiome-based interventions.

- Ethical and Societal Implications:

Discussion of ethical considerations and societal implications related to microbiological research and applications.


Editorial Policies:

- Manuscripts submitted to "Archives of Microbiology" should adhere to rigorous scientific standards, including originality, clarity, and ethical conduct.

- We welcome submissions in categories: Original Research, Brief Reports, Reviews, Mini Reviews, Comments

- The journal promotes open access and encourages the sharing of data and resources to foster collaboration and transparency in microbiological research.

- We would like to note that studies on (i) enzyme activities of not-purified enzymes mixtures, (ii) and studies on essential/crude oils when components are not identified or a reference is not used, will not be considered for publication.
