The Editorial Board of UJMR is glad to have the fourth edition (Volume 3 Number 1, 2018) published. This Journal covers areas of general and Applied Microbiology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Medical and Environmental sciences.

We are also glad for the wider acceptance the Journal has gained both within Nigeria and in some foreign countries. This may not be unconnected with the calibre and expertise of our associate editors. All articles submitted are accepted for publication based on fair, objective and anonymous assessment by our editors backed by cogent decision by the editorial board.

Paper to be submitted should either be original research article, short communication, critical reviews or case reports. It is noteworthy that authors are fully responsible for the originality of their articles.

UJMR is visible online and it is intending to be indexed by reputable indexing organizations, to contribute towards high quality research. We are delighted that UJMR is the first university-based microbiology journal in Nigeria. We therefore urge our colleagues in the academia to join hands with us towards projecting scientific research.

We appreciate the tireless efforts of the editorial board members, our editorial advisers, associate editors and authors that contributed towards making UJMR a high-quality research journal. The support extended to the Journal by the Vice Chancellor and management ofUmaru Musa Yar’adua University is highly appreciated.

Dr. Usman Aliyu Dutsinma
