Aim & Scope

The Indian Journal of Applied Microbiology (IJAM) ISSN 2249-8400, a peer-reviewed and indexed journal, is the official journal of Indian Association of Applied Microbiologists (IAAM). It serves as a platform for showcasing the expertise of the motivated Scientists in the field of Microbiology. This acclaimed journal has a vision to serve for the advancement of science with a special focus on Microbiology. The journal has a determined mission of integrating researchers, scientists and academicians across the world to promote research in diverse areas of Microbiology to impart knowledge among the aspiring and senior Microbiologists thereby rendering noble service to the human kind.

The journal aims to publish all the latest and significant contributions of research in Microbiology. IJAM has the objective of spreading the knowledge and skill for innovative society oriented research works for :

  • Combating the infectious diseases
  • Finding effective drugs and vaccines to treat and prevent threatening microbial diseases for the well being of healthy human and animal life
  • Discovering the microbial resources for life saving bioactive compounds available in different environmental domains
  • Sustainable solution for environmental problems using microbial agents
  • Exploring microbial metabolisms for industrial production of alternative fermented foods, enzymes, vitamins, etc
  • Finding and Applying the potential microorganisms for increased agriculture productivity, control of pests and unwanted herbs

The journal accepts the publication of review articles, original research papers and short communications on the current and emerging infectious diseases, their diagnosis, prevention, control and development of antimicrobial drugs, pilot studies for industrial production of life saving biomolecules, environmental protection using microbial agents, increased Agriculture productivity through the application of microbial biofertilizers and pesticides, Molecular studies using microbial systems, etc.

The journal also intends to encourage the research works focusing on Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, and Nanotechnology provided there is a component on Microbiology / Microorganisms / Microbial processes for consideration in publication. The subscribing individuals are both young and experienced academic and researchers with a keen interest on basic and applied aspects of Microbiology.

IJAM has been designed for meticulous peer-reviewing of submitted manuscripts and prompt publication of articles pertaining to Microbiology subject. The published articles of the journal shall be accessed freely online. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are pre-reviewed by the Editorial Board, and if found suitable, sent for peer review by subject experts. The contributions must be original and the manuscript submitted for publication in IJAM should not have been submitted elsewhere simultaneously and should not have been reported earlier either partly or totally. IJAM is currently accepting manuscripts; interested individuals may submit soft copies of manuscripts through e-mail at Once received, the corresponding author will be periodically communicated on the status of publication of the article.
