JMM provides high-quality comprehensive coverage of medical, dental and veterinary microbiology and infectious diseases, including bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology. Papers are published in the following areas: Pathogenicity and virulence; Host response; Diagnostics, typing and identification; Antimicrobial agents and chemotherapy; Epidemiology; Clinical microbiology and virology; Veterinary microbiology; Oral microbiology; Models of infection; and Human and animal microbial ecology. JMM also publishes Editorials, Reviews, Case reports and Correspondence articles.

JMM Review articles and Editorials are recognized by the Royal College of Pathologists for its Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme.

JMM is published monthly 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 1968 is available online.
