Mycology publishes papers on all aspects of mycology including lichens, with preference to systematics, ecology and biodiversity, genomics and proteomics, and molecular phylogeny and evolution. Other appropriate subjects for the journal include bioinformatics, physiology and biochemistry, pathology, morphology development, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, fungal enzymology, fungal metabolites and new techniques.




The following types of papers will be welcomed:

  • Original Research Articles
  • Technical Reviews or Notes reporting new research
  • Invited papers

Mycology is an Open Access journal. For more information about publishing Open Access with Taylor & Francis, view our Open Access page.

Each article published in Mycology is published Open Access, which means that, upon payment of an article publishing charge (APC), the article is freely and permanently available on Taylor & Francis Group's online platform

The Mycological Society of China currently covers the cost of the APC for all accepted articles, on behalf of authors. Therefore, there is no submission charge, additional subscription fee, article pay-to-view fee or any other form of access fee; and no publication embargo is applied.

Submission Guidelines

Further information is available in the Instructions for Authors.

Or you can submit your paper using the journal's online submission site.
