New Editor-in-Chief appointed
PAGEPress is proud to announce that Prof. Beniamino T. Cenci-Goga, has been appointed Editor-in-Chief of Microbiology Research.
We are confident that Prof. Cenci-Goga, as the new Editor-in-Chief, will be able to promote and develop Microbiology Research, making it an important point of reference for researchers in the field.
The staff of Microbiology Research would like to renew its thanks to the previous Editors-in-Chief and to the former Editorial Board Members for their leadership, wishing them all the best for the future research and scientific work.
Prof. Beniamino T. Cenci-Goga graduated with a degree in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Perugia. After three years of internship in the Infectious Diseases Department, he wrote a dissertation on the protection of new-born calves against experimental rotavirus infection. As PhD training in microbiology and food microbiology, he spent one year at the University of Perugia, one year at the University of Bristol and one year at the University of California at Davis. His first tenure position was at the Health Ministry in Rome as Veterinary Director. He then worked at the Microbiology Laboratory of the Italian Army as lieutenant and since 1999 is Professor at the University of Perugia. He has worked as visiting fellow at the Department of Pathology and Microbiology, School of Medical Sciences, Bristol, UK and as visiting professor at the Veterinary Medicine Teaching and Research Center, University of California, Davis and at the School of Veterinary Medicine, Onderspepoort, South Africa where he specialized in microbiology and food microbiology. He's actively working on applied research focused in food quality improvement with emphasis in safety, microbial diagnostic methods, microbial food spoilage, and clinical training for zoonotic agents. He has published multiple first author original research articles as well as many review articles, books and books chapters. He's actively involved in teaching at the University of Perugia, Italy and is diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Public Health. In 2014 his research group received the StartCup 2014 grant award for a prototyping study in the field of food microbiology. Is an expert for the European commission, for the European Food Safety Authority and lead auditor for quality management systems (ISO 19011).
Message from the New Editor-in-Chief


It is my great pleasure to re-introduce Microbiology Research. This is a very special opportunity for us to utilize the strength of Open Access publications to publish original research, review articles, editorials, perspectives, case reports and brief reports to benefit microbiologists, physicians, veterinarians. The Open Access format allows the manuscripts to be available to anyone seeking out the paper.
It is always hard to restart a journal and especially one in the field of microbiology, where there are lots of top tiered journals. Our goal is to develop this journal into a PubMed indexed journal. To achieve this goal, we rely on authors to submit their papers and allow us to publish on a continual basis.
We are especially interested in both original research and review articles. Original research can be in any area of microbiology. Review articles are of great interest to us.
Our first approach will be to set up a “four quadrants articles grid”

ClinicJunior clinicPro clinic
ResearchJunior researchPro research

This simple four-quadrant grid with two columns labelled as ‘Junior’ and ‘Professional’, and the rows as ‘Clinic’ and ‘Research’ will divide our articles into four categories. The clinic category will accept papers such as clinical trials, while basic or applied research work will fit into the research category. The new approach of Microbiology Research is to introduce two different skill and proficiency levels. The junior section will accept papers with sound methods, as far as it concerns aspects such as replications and sample size, but with a limited set of observations or with a basic statistical approach, while all regular papers will fit into the professional category.
The aim of this four quadrant grid is to encourage younger researchers, physicians and veterinarians to submit their results even if their studies encompass just a limited set of observations or rely on basic statistical approach, yet upholding the customary sound approach of every scientific article.
We look forward to a very productive year ahead of us and we appreciate all the work that our authors are putting in to make this a great journal.

Beniamino T. Cenci-Goga, Editor-in-Chief
