The JISM is an official organ of the International Society of Microbiota that promote yearly microbiota by gathering outstanding academic, industrial and medicinal researchers during well-known international congresses.

A large body of evidence shows that a diverse population of micro-organisms lives in our skin, mouth, nose, lung and gut, where it plays a strategic role in regulating and possibly controlling human health, well-being, metabolism and diseases.  We aim to publish articles that providing an insight on breakthrough discoveries in academic, industrial and clinical medicinal research, thereby lending a strong input to this strategic field.

  • Fecal Microbiota Transplantation: Practical Issues & Regulation

As such the following qualities are essential in any article published by the journal: scientific credibility and rigor, and coherence and clarity in the writing. Contributions must present new findings or new update in the field of Microbiota.


The JISM provides a new platform for all researchers, scientists, practitioner to publish their research work and update the latest research information.
