Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.628 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.382 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 0.985 (2020) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology (IJMM) provides comprehensive coverage of medical microbiology, as well as infectious diseases. We welcome wide ranging contributions; from basic research at laboratory to clinical trials, including bacteriology, mycobacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology, infection prevention and control, and infectious diseases.

We publish articles under the following subject categories:

Antimicrobial susceptibility and antimicrobial stewardship: surveillance of antimicrobial susceptibility in bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites of importance in humans, animals, and the environment that are frequently interconnected; mechanisms of action, resistance and interactions. The role of antimicrobial stewardship programs in hospitals and its effectiveness.

Clinical microbiology: understanding pathogenesis, virulence factors of the diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, mycobacteria, parasites and fungi in humans, clinical presentation, newer methods and tools for diagnosis of disease and therapeutic options; community health with respect to infection burden and prevention, disease epidemiology and climate change.

Emerging infectious diseases: understanding the epidemiology of new and emerging infections or old infections having a resurgence in humans including zoonosis; their pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment.

Medical mycology and mycobacteriology: pathogenesis, diagnosis, drug susceptibility, therapy, immunology, vaccine development, epidemiology, public health and outbreak investigation of diseases in humans.

Hospital infection: various hospital associated infections -their analysis, control, prevention and lessons learnt, newer methodologies to track HAI's, hospital outbreaks.

Molecular studies: application of phenotypic, genotypic and molecular techniques in the study of virulence, AMR genes, epidemiology, outbreak investigations and public health.

Microbiome and microbial ecology in health: the normal microbiome and dysbiosis; structure of microbial ecosystems and communities; microbial ecology, with an emphasis on how microorganisms interact with their environment, their host and each other and their impact on general health and treatment of disease. the normal microbiome and dysbiosis and its association with disease conditions; and microbial ecosystems and communities.

Immunology: basic research in immunity and host cell responses to infections.

Vaccinology and therapeutics: research in identifying vaccine targets, novel drug discovery and therapeutics.

IJMM publishes article types such as original research, review articles, systematic reviews, meta-analysis, clinical trials, correspondence, case reports and a new section - infectious disease grand rounds.

High quality scientific content related to infections from dental and veterinary sciences (like zoonotic illnesses) can also be submitted.
