A dedicated international forum for the presentation of high-quality scientific investigations of how microorganisms interact each other, with neighbors, with their surroundingsAverage time from submission to first decision is 25 days100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal againCongratulations to Editor-in-Chief Karen Nelson, elected to the National Academy of Sciences!Microbial Ecology is a dedicated international forum for the presentation of high-quality scientific investigations of how microorganisms interact with their environment, with each other and with their hosts. It offers articles of original research in full paper and note formats, as well as brief reviews, commentaries and topical position papers. The journal was founded more than 50 years ago by Dr. Ralph Mitchell, Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Biology at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. It has evolved to become a premier location for the presentation of manuscripts that represent advances in the field of microbial ecology.Coverage includes the ecology of microorganisms in natural and engineered environments; genomic, metagenomic and molecular advances in understanding of microbial interactions; microbial diversity and phylogeny; microbial drivers of biogeochemical processes; inter- and intraspecific microbial communication; ecological studies of human, animal, plant and insect microbiology and disease; microbial processes and interactions in extreme or unusual environments; microbial population, community ecology, technological developments and more.Our dedicated Editorial Board ensures that only the highest quality manuscripts are rapidly published.Microbial Ecology welcomes contributions of images from authors for its cover images. Please contact the Editorial Office if you have an image to contribute. It has an SJR impact factor of 0,96.

Microbial Ecology focuses its scope in these topics and keywords: isolated, microbiome, bacterial, human, larvae, sediments, populations, community, communities, lake, ...
