 Aims and Scope

The “Asian journal of Mycology” (AJOM), the official journal of the Center of Excellence in Fungal Research, Mae Fah Luang University, Thailand, is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal. The primary focus of this journal is to publish a wide range of high-quality articles in mycology and lichenology, specifically from Asia, but not exclusively. The research areas include:

  • Fungal diversity (systematics, taxonomy, molecular phylogeny, checklists, omics)
  • Fungal ecology (pathology, epidemiology, symbiosis, succession) 
  • Fungal biology (cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, natural antibiotics, antimycotics, and other fungal secondary metabolites)
  • Applied mycology (biotechnology)
  • Fungal evolution

 The main focus of the journal is on basic original research, but review articles and methodological articles are highly welcome. Studies published in the “Asian journal of Mycology” are accompanied by publicly accessible data and provide maximum transparency and reproducibility of analyses workflows. AJOM offers a free outlet for the publications of the mycology community, and there are no word limits for papers in this journal.
