Polish Journal of Microbiology publishes mainly original research articles including short communications, but also minireviews, book reviews and press releases. The PJM is now developing as a new information exchange platform for authors who publish research findings and reviews on the latest developments in the field of microbiology. All papers should be prepared according to “Instructions for Authors”. Submission of manuscripts in various areas of Microbiology is very welcome.

Articles are subjected to fees. The publication fee for all types of articles is 1000 USD + 23% VAT (if applicable). Depending on the country of origin, a fee may be subject to local taxes. Polish Journal of Microbiology does not offer fee waivers. Only the fee for corresponding authors who currently are members of the Polish Society of Microbiologists is reduced to 800 USD + 23% VAT, or equivalent in Polish zloty (PLN).

All inquiries regarding fees can be directed to our editorial office at editorial.office@pjmonline.org
