ASM Journals

The mission of the ASM Journals program is to advance the microbiological sciences through the pursuit of scientific knowledge and dissemination of the results of fundamental and applied research. Edited by working scientists who are drawn from eminent institutions around the world, ASM Journals have delivered excellence and value for nearly 100 years. Known for their quality, rigor, and fairness, ASM Journals continue to provide current, influential coverage of basic and clinical microbial research.

To create more opportunities for researchers to get their important findings out to the global scientific community and share insights across subfields, ASM is launching two new interdisciplinary open-access journals, mSphereTM and mSystemsTM, in early 2016. mSphereTM will be led by Founding Editor in Chief Michael Imperiale, who seeks to publish high-quality work that makes fundamental contributions to our understanding of the broad field of microbiology. Jack Gilbert will serve as the Founding Editor in Chief of mSystemsTM, which will welcome submissions from researchers who focus on the microbiome, genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, glycomics, bioinformatics, and computational microbiology. Both mSphere and mSystems™ will provide streamlined decisions, while carrying on ASM’s tradition for rigorous peer review. Calls for Papers are scheduled for September 2015.
