Basic information

Revista de Microbiologia is a quarterly publication of the Sociedade Brasileira de Microbiologia – SBM (Brazilian Society for Microbiology).

SBM was founded in 1956, and is affiliated to the International Union of Microbiological Societies – IUMS.

The first issue of the Revista de Microbiologia was published in 1970 by the editors Italo Suassuna (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) and Luiz R. Trabulsi (Federal University of São Paulo).

The Revista is intended to publish original research papers, research notes and, occasionally, reviews, covering all aspects of Microbiology. The texts submitted for publication must be written in English. The journal has a severe policy of manuscript evaluation, and each manuscript is evaluated by at least two criteriously selected referees.
