Aims and scope
Topics broadly addressing the study of microbial communities, such as, microbial surveys, bioinformatics, meta-omics approaches and community/host interaction modeling will be considered for publication. Through this collection of literature Microbiome hopes to integrate researchers with common scientific objectives across a broad cross-section of sub-disciplines within microbial ecology.
When submitting a manuscript to Microbiome, we ask that authors select a specified section to submit to as outlined below. This is to facilitate the manuscript assessment and review process.
1. Gut microbiomes and Immunology
2. Genital, skin, oral microbiomes
3. Respiratory microbiomes
4. Other human microbiomes
5. Novel Methodological approaches (including meta-omics)
6. Bioinformatics: algorithms and software
7. Animal microbiomes
8. Plant microbiomes
9. Environmental microbiomes
10. Built-environment microbiomes
The microbiome family
Microbiome's journal family has grown in 2019 with the launch of Animal Microbiome and Environmental Microbiome. These journals will work closely together with Microbiome to offer the microbiome community a variety of publishing platforms. Read more about the missions of the new members of the family.
Environmental Microbiome welcomes research and reviews addressing the varied facets of environmental and applied microbiological research.
Joy Watts (University of Portsmouth) is the Editor-in-Chief, and she is joined by an expert editorial team of Associate Editors on the journal. Read Joy's Editorial outlining her visions for the journal, as well as viewing the first research papers from the journal
Animal Microbiome is a community-focused journal welcoming all animal microbiome studies relating to domestic and non-domestic animals.
Editor-in-Chief,Sharon Huws (Queen’s University, Belfast) is joined by an editorial team of internationally renowned scientists. You can read more about the journal’s mission in Sharon’s Editorial as well as viewing the first research papers from the journal.
