Today the Society for General Microbiology is launching a new publishing platform which has been built to improve functionality, design and navigation for the benefit of all our users.
To coincide with the launch of the Society’s new publishing platform we have introduced a new look and feel for all of our journals.
The Society for General Microbiology’s gold open access option is now known as OpenMicrobiology (formerly SGM Open). OpenMicrobiology allows authors and their funding bodies to make the final published version of their article freely available online upon payment of an article processing charge.
