Announcing a new undergraduate research journal in microbiology, entitled Fine Focus. As the first microbiology research journal for undergraduates, Fine Focus has an international Editorial Board comprised of experts in all subdisciplines of microbiology, and targets undergraduates who are performing research, and their mentors. Submitted manuscripts will go through a double-blind review process and, if accepted, articles will appear both in print and online, with the inaugural issue scheduled for summer 2014 (June/July). Mission Statement: Fine Focus is a web and print journal dedicated to showcasing the research of undergraduate students, internationally, in all fields of microbiology. Fine Focus is managed entirely by undergraduate students from production to print yet maintains an external Editorial Board of experts internationally who will perform the manuscript reviews. Scope: Fine Focus publishes original research by undergraduate students in microbiology. This includes works in all microbiological specialties including microbiology education. Research in other biology disciplines will not be accepted unless the main emphasis of the work centers on microorganism(s).
Accepts submissions from undergraduate students
