The May Issue of the Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education (JMBE) is now available. In this issue, the new Editor-in-Chief describes the Editorial Board’s 5-year plan for the journal. Editors are specifically seeking papers on teaching science ethics for a special section in the December 2014 issue. If you are thinking of publishing, the recently updated JMBE website provides step-by-step author guidelines, video tutorials, a manuscript diagnosis tool, and a brand new “JMBE Profiles” interview series to highlight Editorial Board members and authors. A unique feature of the JMBE editorial process is to provide extensive feedback, guidance, and support for authors from submission through publication – take advantage of these resources and let us help you showcase your education research and innovations!
