Applied Microbiology International (AMI) is proud to announce the launch of its new journal, Sustainable Microbiology, in partnership with Oxford University Press. This international, peer-reviewed publication will showcase original scientific and policy contributions on research examining the role of microbes in achieving a sustainable world.

The journal will present high-quality papers on how microbiologists play an important role in achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. Sustainable Microbiology will also demonstrate how microbiology has a direct link to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) addressing food security, One Health, sanitation, environmental degradation, and climate change.

Led by Editor-in-Chief, David A. Pearce, Professor of Environmental Microbiology at Northumbria University, Sustainable Microbiology is a fully open access journal and the first new journal launched by the organisation since Microbial Biotechnology in 2008. The journal will also be AMI’s first journal to publish policy papers alongside research and reviews.

Professor Pearce said: “Applied microbiology has a key role to play in working towards a more sustainable future, and so Sustainable Microbiology is looking forward to welcoming submissions from scientists, policy makers and practitioners in which authors present their work in a way that specifically showcases how microbiology can contribute towards the UN SDGs.”
