About the journal


Slime Molds is an open access journal dedicated to mycetozoans (myxomycetes, dictyostelids and other amoeboid organisms). It is a project with the premise of disseminating as much as possible the scientific, artistic, educational and technological outcomes of the human interest in these organisms. This initiative was conceived by professional researchers and enthusiasts of slime molds and it represents a democratic and free-of-cost space for the publication of items of general interest to the community. Everybody is welcome to publish on Slime Molds anything considered relevant for the continuous construction of knowledge and appreciation of these microscopic organisms.


Slime Molds focuses on the publication of articles and notes on mycetozoans and implements high scientific and ethical standards. The editorial board of the journal includes some of the better known names in slime mold science with many years of experience conducting research around the world. This project is not bound to any academic institution or private company and it does not follow the business model dominating the publication of modern science. The open access nature of the items published through this initiative is secured by long-term storage.
