Clinical Microbiology Reviews (CMR) is a peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes scholarly works of interest in the areas of clinical microbiology, immunology, medical microbiology, infectious diseases, veterinary microbiology, and microbial pathogenesis. It is a delayed open access journal, full content is accessible via PubMed Central and the journal's website after a 12-month embargo. In April 2015, the journal transitioned to a continuous online publication model for CMR (whereby articles are published as they become ready, before the issue in which they will appear has been finalized). There is still a quarterly print issue. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2014 impact factor of 17.406, ranking it 2nd out of 119 journals in the category "Microbiology".[1] CMR was established in January 1988.[2] The founding editor was Josephine A. Morello (University of Chicago Medical Center).[2] Editorial board structure changed in 1992 and Morello became editor-in-chief.[2] Betty Ann Forbes (State University of New York) was appointed editor-in-chief in 1997.[2] Irving Nachamkin (University of Pennsylvania) was appointed editor-in-chief in 2002 until 2012. Jo-Anne H. Young's (University of Minnesota) term as editor-in-chief ends in 2017. It is the ninth journal established and published by the American Society for Microbiology.[2]
