Published:21 Jul.2020    Source:Microbiology Society

The Microbiology Society was awarded a grant by the Wellcome Trust and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) as part of their Learned Society Curation Awards. These awards were designed to support society publishers who “want to explore new ways of signalling the significance of published research outputs in an open and transparent manner”.


The Society has made real commitments to Open Access (OA), from launching pure OA journals like Microbial Genomics, to our innovative Publish and Read model which allows authors to publish OA in all of the Society’s journals free of charge.
