Publishing journals of international repute, our Society magazine, education resources, and policy briefings and statements

Our peer-reviewed journals, Microbiology, Journal of General Virology, Journal of Medical Microbiology, JMM Case Reports, Microbial Genomics and the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, are each published monthly and contain high-quality research papers and topical review articles on microbial topics.

We also produce a quarterly magazine, Microbiology Today, packed with topical articles and news from the field of microbiology and the world of microbes, as well as educational resources, symposium volumes and policy documents on key Society priorities.



The Society publishes six peer-reviewed journals in microbiology and virology. The journals have expert editorial boards and an international readership.

Microbiology Today

Microbiology Today is the Society's quarterly magazine, aimed at both specialists and the general public.

Policy documents

The Microbiology Society has published a number of policy documents addressing key issues in microbiology.

Education resources

We provide a range of microbiology resources for all age groups from primary to post-16.


Until 2006, the proceedings of Society meetings were published in book form. These volumes, including at least one meeting, present key findings on a diverse range of topics.
