Mycoscience and other publications
We publish two academic journals.
Mycoscience is the official English journal of the Mycological Society of Japan and is issued bimonthly. Both members and non-members of the Mycological Society of Japan are encouraged to submit manuscripts for publication in the journal. Mycoscience publishes original research articles (full papers, short communications, and notes) and reviews on various aspects of fungi including yeasts and other organisms that traditionally have been studied by mycologists. The research aspects covered by Mycoscience extend from such purely scientific interests as systematics (taxonomy by traditional methods and systematics by molecular methods), evolution, phylogeny, morphology, ecology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology, to such agricultural, medical, and industrial applications as pathology (human, animal, and plant), pharmaceuticals, food processing, and other biotechnologies. Also included are new and improved applications of well-established mycological techniques and methods.
For continuous improvement of the journal quality, all the articles are peer-reviewed by anonymous reviewers and editor in chief. We use electrical submission system (Editorial Manager System customized for Mycoscience). Once received, the articles will be published immediately online.
Mycoscience is listed in Web of Science, and has an impact factor of:
1.172 (for 2019).
Detailed information on Mycoscience (e. g. subscription, authors' instruction, copyright etc.) are available at the WEB site for Mycoscience in the publisher (Link to Mycoscience in Shobi publishing).
