Indian Journal of Microbiology Research Indian Journal of Microbiology Research (IJMR) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with reputable academics and experts as members of its Editorial Board. IJMR publishes information on basic and applied microbiology for a worldwide readership. It publishes original research papers, short communications, critical reviews and opinion letters dealing with all fields of microbiology and it addresses the international scientific community. The special fields covered are microorganisms (eukaryotes: protoctists, moulds, yeast; prokaryotes: bacteria, cyanobacteria, archaea; viruses, prions), microbial biology (physiology, ecology, morphology, taxonomy, genetics, pathogenesis) and microbial applications (environmental, soil, industrial, food, medical microbiology, biodeterioration, bioremediation, biotechnology). Papers related to microbial science on a worldwide basis are also considered. Special emphasis is given to issues that go beyond the traditional boundaries of a microbiology journal: the state-of-the art of microbiology in different parts of the world, the research activities and interests of outstanding microbiologists, the role of microbiology in society and education, new findings from the frontiers of current research, etc. Critical reviews of new books on microbial science are also welcome. Aims & Scope: Indian Journal of Microbiology Research aims to publish all the latest and outstanding research articles, reviews and letters in all areas of major importance to techniques of microbiology and applied research. It publishes high quality research and review papers on novel aspects of microbiology, including environmental, food, agricultural, medical, pharmaceutical, veterinary, soil, water and bio-deterioration. This journal publishes full-length papers, short communication reviews and mini reviews on all aspects of microbiological research. Areas of special interest in the journal include agricultural,  Read More...
