Microscopy Periodicals

Journal of Electron Microscopy
The Journal of Electron Microscopy is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Microscopy, the second largest society of microscopy in the world. The journal is an international forum, open to all scientists in the field, for publishing the best research in advanced electron microscopy and new scanning probe microscopy. To ensure this policy, the journal has appointed eminent scientists from around the world to be Regional Editors. The Journal of Electron Microscopy publishes six issues a year, and papers cover the application of advanced microscopy in diverse fields. Articles cover theories, methods, techniques, and instrumentation, as well as their applications to life and material sciences.

Microscopy and Microanalysis
The journal publishes original research papers in the general areas of microscopy, imaging, and compositional analysis and provides a distinguished international forum for the latest scientific research and techniques for microscopists in both malerials science and biology. The journal also contains selected news and commentary of interest to society members. Official Journal of: the Microscopy Society of America; the Microbeam Analysis Society; the Microscopical Society of Canada – Societe de Microscopie du Canada; the Mexican Microscopy Society; the Brazilian Society for Microscopy and Microanalysis; and the Venezuelan Society of Electron Microscopy.

Microscopy Today
The objective of this publication is to provide material of interest and value to working microscopists! The publication is owned by the Microscopy Society of America (MSA) and is produced six times each year in odd months, alternating with MSA’s peer-reviewed, scientific journal Microscopy and Microanalysis.

Modern Microscopy, an Online Journal
Welcome to Modern Microscopy Journal, a periodic on-line journal devoted to the world of microscopy. Every issue we will present articles, interviews, book reviews and columns by some of the most experienced researchers in the field. Also includes links to an atlas of microscopic particles, and a “how to” tutorial series.

Journal of Microscopy
Journal of Microscopy publishes top quality review articles, original research papers, short technical notes, short communications, rapid publications and letters to the Editors covering all aspects of microscopy and all aspects of microscopy and analysis. Papers that emphasize the application of microscopical techniques or specimen preparation procedures in an investigation are also welcome.

Microscopy Organizations

Microscopy Society of America – MSA
The Microscopy Society of America (MSA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the knowledge of the science and practice of all microscopical imaging, analysis and diffraction techniques useful for elucidating the ultrastructure and function of materials in diverse areas of biological, materials, medical and physical sciences.

American Microscopical Society
The American Microscopical Society is an international society of biologists organized to encourage the use of microscopy. Its members are mostly scientists and educators who use various kinds of microscopes in their research and teaching–light and electron microscopes, fluorescence and confocal microscopes, and other tools for visualizing the small. It publishes reports of research on invertebrate biology (in its journal Invertebrate Biology), conducts annual meetings on research using microscopy, and organizes workshops on techniques of microscopy and on biology of organisms studied by microscopy.

Royal Microscopical Society
The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) has a long and distinguished history, yet has always been at the forefront of new ideas and developments in microscopy. The RMS serves the needs of its members in the academic and industrial worlds. It promotes both theory and practical application, shaping the future of microscopy.
The RMS is the only truly international microscopical society, counting in its distinguished membership microscopists from all over the world.

Society for Ultrastructural Pathology
The Society for Ultrastructural Pathology is an international association of electron microscopists, formed in 1986. The academic objectives of the Society are accomplished at the Companion Meeting of the annual United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology meeting and at the biennial UltraPath conferences. The Society fosters the application of electron microscopy in the diagnosis and research of human diseases. The meetings are an opportunity for the exchange of information, particularly ultrastructural and immunohistochemical, relevant to diagnostic pathology. Members of the Society welcome practitioners of, and those who are interested in, the art and science of electron microscopy. This includes pathologists, residents and registrars in pathology, Ph.D. electron microscopists, electron microscopy technologists, and research scientists.

Literature Search

PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine, includes over 14 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950’s. These citations are from MEDLINE and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources.

The National Agricultural Library (NAL) has released a significant upgrade to its Web-based AGRICOLA catalog of records for the materials in its collection. The new version of AGRICOLA provides improved access–many new search and retrieval capabilities, with daily updates–to over 4 million bibliographic records, the world’s largest compilation of agricultural information.

News & Current Events

They have a pretty long list of science news links about half way down on the left of the linked page, then even more at the “Portholes” link. Here’s what they have to say about themselves: “Here’s the best intelligent, informed science and technology coverage and analysis you can find on a daily basis, sourcing a huge range of great writers and excellent publications.”

On-line news magazine brought to you by the AAAS. You have access to the current table of contents, to tables of contents of back issues, to Science Careers and E-Marketplace, and to supplementary material from the print journal at no cost and without having to register. You may also search the Science database and view a free sample issue. Your free registration provides access to Science, STKE, and SAGE KE abstracts and summaries, full text of Science research articles at least one year old and published after September 1996, and other selected material. (Note: If you are accessing the Science Mag. link via a University, you may have full access provided by your university, but restricted access elsewhere.)

Scientific American
Scientific American, the oldest continuously published magazine in the U.S., has been bringing its readers unique insights about developments in science and technology for more than 150 years.
