Announcement: Animal Microbiome has launched
Animal Microbiome is a community-focused journal welcoming all animal microbiome studies relating to domestic and non-domestic animals.
Led by Editor-in-Chief Sharon Huws (Queen’s University, Belfast) and an editorial team of internationally renowned scientists, Animal Microbiome is the first of two sister journals to Microbiome that will launch in 2019. You can read more about the journal’s mission in Sharon’s Editorial as well as the first research paper from the journal, Distinct microbiotas of anatomical gut regions display idiosyncratic seasonal variation in an avian folivore, by Sergei Drovetski and colleagues.
We will also shortly be launching Environmental Microbiome, the second of the sister journals to Microbiome. Environmental Microbiome is headed by Dr Joy Watts (University of Portsmouth).

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
7. Novel Methodological approaches (including meta-omics)
5. Bioinformatics: algorithms and software
6. Animal microbiomes
7. Plant microbiomes
7. Environmental microbiomes
8. Built-environment microbiomes
