Best Microbiology Journals

The ranking of leading journals for Microbiology was generated by Research.com, one of the prominent platforms for Microbiology research supplying accurate analyses on scientific output since 2014.

The spot in the ranking is based on a novel bibliometric score devised by Research.com which is computed with the use of the estimated discipline index (D-index) as well as the number of leading scientists that have endorsed the journal during the last five previous years. Show more

Please that this year's edition is based on metric collected for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021.

The ranking displays Impact Score data gathered on 06-12-2021.

The process for scoring journals was based on analysing more than 3,135 journals which were chosen after meticulous inspection and scrupulous examination of over 31,545 scientific papers published during the last five years by 3,551 leading and well-renowned scholars in the area of Microbiology.

More information on the methodology for establishing the metrics can be found on our our methodology page.
