JIMB is the flagship journal of SIMB. As stated in JIMB “aims and scope”, it is an international journal that publishes papers describing original research, short communications and critical reviews in the fields of biotechnology, fermentation and cell culture, biocatalysis, environmental microbiology, natural products discovery and biosynthesis, metabolic engineering, genomics, bioinformatics, food microbiology and other areas of applied microbiology. “Significantly novel industrial microbiology and/or biotechnology” is a major criterion for accepting manuscripts. Thus, manuscripts reporting on well described processes, organisms, enzymes, shake flask optimization, screening studies/isolation studies, etc. are not acceptable unless novel and significant new information pertaining to “industrial microbiology and/or biotechnology” is presented. JIMB publishes high quality manuscripts and reviews.
