Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) is an international European scientific organization, formed by the union of a number of national organizations; there are now 51 members from 36 European countries, regular and provisional.[1] Members can apply for fellowships, grants and/or support when organising a meeting. FEMS facilitates exchange of scientific knowledge to all microbiologists in Europe and worldwide by publishing five microbiology journals and organising a biennial congress for microbiologists around the world. It also initiates campaigns such as the European Academy of Microbiology (EAM) and the European Microbiology Forum (EMF).[2]

Since 1977, it is the sponsor of FEMS Microbiology Letters, a single journal, that was later on followed by 4 more journals:

Originally published for the Society by Elsevier, then by Wiley-Blackwell, they are now published by Oxford University Press.
