WHAT IS Fine Focus?

 We are an international journal dedicated to showcasing undergraduate research in all fields of microbiology. Fine Focus is managed entirely by undergraduate students from production to print, but utilizes an external editorial board of experts for double-blind peer review of manuscripts.

Undergraduate students can submit microbiology research by going to finefocussubmissions.org.
Microbiology professors and other professionals can become involved with Fine Focus as reviewers.

We are the first microbiology research journal for undergraduate students.
