Microscopy Today

Welcome to Microscopy Today

Microscopy Today (MT) seeks to provide information of interest to microscopists working in all fields. Microscopy Today is a controlled-circulation trade magazine owned by the Microscopy Society of America (MSA) and published by Oxford University Press. It is produced six times a year in the odd months, alternating with MSA's peer-reviewed scientific journal Microscopy and Microanalysis.

Readers and authors come from the life sciences and the physical sciences. Editorial coverage spans all microscopy methods including light microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, electron microscopy, ion-beam techniques, and a wide range of microanalytical methods.

We greatly appreciate article contributions from our readers — microscope users as well as microscope manufacturers and suppliers. The main criterion is that the subject matter should be of interest to a reasonable number of working microscopists. Of value to many microscopists is the accessibility of MT articles, allowing workers in one field to see how problems are solved in other fields with equipment and methods that may be unfamiliar to them.

Article length is generally 2 to 3 printed pages plus images, but longer articles will be considered. Short notes on methods and procedures are encouraged for Microscopy 101. See Instructions for Contributors at the MT website:
