Federation of European Microbiological Societies journals content goes live with OUP

Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press (OUP) is delighted to announce that on 21 November the first new content from the prestigious Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) journals went live following our new contract with the Federation earlier this year.

FEMS is a growing organisation with currently 52 member societies from 36 European countries, bringing together around thirty thousand professional microbiologists. It facilitates the exchange of scientific knowledge globally through the publication of their five respected journals, popular biennial Congress and extensive grants programme.

As well as new content being added daily, the journals' full archive is also available online. In addition, OUP, together with FEMS, have developed a new cross-journal portal where readers can search content, find out more about the journals and editors, and submit their articles or sign up for content alerts. This can be found at

The five FEMS journals are:

FEMS Microbiology Ecology
FEMS Microbiology Ecology publishes high quality papers that make a significant contribution to the understanding of microbial ecology.

FEMS Microbiology Letters
FEMS Microbiology Letters focuses on concise articles that merit urgent publication by virtue of their originality. It also features MiniReviews, which cover all aspects of microbiology.

FEMS Microbiology Reviews
Ranking 4th in the JCR Microbiology subject category, FEMS Microbiology Reviews publishes invited reviews that provide authoritative coverage on key areas in microbiology.

FEMS Yeast Research
The leading journal in its field, FEMS Yeast Research publishes both fundamental and applied research on conventional and non-conventional yeasts and yeast-like organisms.

Pathogens and Disease
Formerly FEMS Immunology and Medical Microbiology, and retaining its Impact Factor of 2.554 Pathogens and Disease publishes outstanding primary research on hypothesis- or discovery-driven studies on pathogens, host-pathogen interactions, and especially the interactions between host, pathogen and microbiome.

Cath Cotton, Managing Director, FEMS says: "We're really excited about this collaboration with OUP, and it's been inspiring to work during the transition process with such a highly motivated team. OUP have an excellent list and some great publishing partners, and we're very happy to be joining them."

Claire Rawlinson, Senior Publisher, OUP says "Oxford University Press is delighted to be partnering with FEMS in publishing their five flagship microbiology journals. It is a privilege to be working with such an influential Federation and we are looking forward to supporting FEMS' mission to advance microbiology through global dissemination of high quality research".
