Antonie van Leeuwenhoek
​​​​​​​Journal of Microbiology

Antonie van Leeuwenhoek  is the official journal of the Royal Dutch Society for Microbiology (KNVM), and we have joined forces to reinvigorate the journal as an outlet for high quality studies in the tradition of the Dutch School of Microbiology. 

This journal publishes papers on fundamental and applied aspects of microbiology, with a particular emphasis on the natural world. Topics covered range from molecular biology and genetics to ecology and marine microbiology, as well microbial pathogenesis and bioinformatics. These can be in applied contexts such as agriculture, food microbiology and assay development amongst others. New taxa descriptions must demonstrate scientific interest beyond minimum description requirements to warrant consideration. Ideally, new taxa descriptions should part of a broader scientific study, rather than a short note format.
