e NEWSLETTER – Sri Lanka College of Microbiologists – JANUARY 2015

Editor’s note

At the beginning of another year we would like to invite members to contribute to improve the scientific writing in all fields related to medical microbiology.

The practice of microbiology is becoming more diverse and challenging. It is worthwhile sharing our experience in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious disease with others, especially in issues related to the developing world where answers are not so straight forward.

Two guidelines have been sent to the members, one for sending abstracts of free papers for the annual scientific sessions and another for sending articles for the SLCM bulletin 2015.

SLCM e-Newsletter will be published in the first, second and fourth quarters of this year. Those who prefer to receive a printed version of the newsletter can send a request tothe college email. Articles will be accepted for the page on ‘Topics of current interest’ in the newsletter.

Short articles may also be forwarded for publication on the college website. Newsletters and the bulletin will be published on the updated websitewith the help of SLCM webmaster.

I thank the editorial board members including the current president, joint secretaries, webmaster and reviewers of abstracts and articles who will be continuing to serve this year.
