International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology

Current Issue: Jul 1 2014 12:00:00:000AM

International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (IJSEM) is the leading forum for the publication of new taxa of bacteria and yeasts, and it is the official journal of record for bacterial names of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes (ICSP) of the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS). The current Impact Factor for the journal is 2.112 (2012).

IJSEM, formerly International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology (IJSB), is the official journal of record for novel prokaryotic taxa. Now in its 61st year (before 1966 it was known as the International Bulletin of Bacteriological Nomenclature and Taxonomy), the journal is the cornerstone of the dynamic field of microbial systematics.

IJSEM publishes papers dealing with all phases of the systematics of prokaryotes, yeasts and yeast-like organisms, including taxonomy, nomenclature, identification, phylogeny, evolution, biodiversity, characterization and culture preservation. Its scope covers phylogenetic and evolutionary aspects of all micro-organisms, including the protists such as protozoa and algae, and it also publishes molecular environmental papers with a strong systematics content. Its international Editorial Board ensures the highest standards of peer review.

IJSEM is published monthly, with over 3000 printed pages per year, and is available in print or online. Our journals are published online with HighWire Press, in both full HTML and as downloadable PDFs. Features include journal cross-linking, eTOCS and supplementary data. The complete archive available back to 1951 is available online.

Journal subscriptions are available in two formats, either Online Only or Print and Online. SGM operates a tiered pricing structure. For more information please visit our subscriptions page.

The Journal's Editorial Board ensures high standards of peer review. Below, Karen Rowlett, Managing Editor of IJSEM (2012), explains the journal’s scope and features and summarises the benefits for authors of publishing in the journal.
