Membership has grown from 59 scientists in 1899 to more than 39,000 members today, with more than one third located outside the United States. The members represent 26 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators.
Eligibility for Full Membership is open to any person who is interested in microbiology and holds at least a bachelor's degree or equivalent experience in microbiology or related field. Many members hold advanced degrees, including a large number at the master's, PhD, ScD, DrPH and MD level. A regularly matriculated student of microbiology or a related field is eligible to become a student member. There are also separate membership categories for postdoctoral fellows and for transitional scientists in the early years of a career.

Microbiologists study microbes--bacteria, viruses, rickettsiae, mycoplasma, fungi, algae and protozoa--some of which cause diseases, but many of which contribute to the balance of nature or are otherwise beneficial.

Microbiological research includes infectious diseases, recombinant DNA technology, alternative methods of energy production and waste recycling, new sources of food, new drug development, and the etiology of sexually transmitted diseases, among other areas. Microbiology is also concerned with environmental problems and industrial processes.

Microbiology boasts some of the most illustrious names in the annals of science--Pasteur, Koch, Fleming, Leeuwenhoek, Lister, Jenner and Salk--and some of the greatest achievements for mankind. Within the 20th century, a third of all Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine have been bestowed upon microbiologists.

Begell House

Begell House, Inc. was established as a source of scholarly publications in 1991 by Dr. William Begell, who has had a long and distinguished career as a chemical-nuclear engineer, researcher and publisher.

Dr. Begell taught at Columbia University and was the Engineering Director of its Heat Transfer Research Facility. There, he managed the large-scale seminal work on two-phase flows, burnout studies and cooling procedures for nuclear reactors, some of which were conducted directly under the founder of the US Nuclear Navy, Admiral Hyman Rickover. He then became involved in a US Air Force intelligence project, that culminated in the cofounding of Scripta Technica (1962), a publishing company specializing in the presentation of important scientific and engineering materials translated from foreign languages into English. Building upon his experience and reputation in the field, Dr. Begell was a founder and continued to pursue his personal research and publishing activities at Hemisphere Publishing Corporation (1966) where he developed an impressive list of 86 high-impact engineering and biomedical journals as well as hundreds of text and research books and reference tools.

Dr. Begell’s visionary sense of future trends in engineering and biomedicine led to the creation of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary publications. Throughout the years, Dr. Begell’s contributions and support of scholarly societies were a factor in the development of new branches of knowledge. In some cases, these innovative titles led to the establishment of new fields of endeavor and study. Dr. Begell was one of the founding members of the Society of Scholarly Publishing and has been nominated for and granted many awards for his achievements in science, engineering and publishing. In 2005 he was awarded the ASME Heat Transfer Division Distinguished Service Award.

Today, the publication staff, authors and leading journal editors at Begell House, Inc. create, support and maintain new and existing projects under Dr. Begell’s founding philosophy and remain one of the few independent scholarly publishers in the world. Begell House subscribers include major research, academic and governmental institutions as well as industrial corporations worldwide.

Begell House invite like-minded scholars and engineers to join our forward-looking ranks of collaborators in bringing modern information by modern means to the modern researcher and reader, while maintaining our traditional philosophy of investing in the future of science and engineering.

The idea for ebrary was spawned in 1988 when co-founder Christopher Warnock was unable to find the information he needed in a local library to build a recumbent bicycle: Engineering books were in the basement, books on bikes in general were on the third floor, and periodicals were on the fourth floor in microfiche. Additionally, Christopher had to check back and forth for relevant information between the library’s OPAC and card catalog, which was time consuming and inefficient.

In 1998, Christopher discussed this problem with high school friend Kevin Sayar, and together they decided to address it. The two believed that books and other information should be available online to meet the growing needs of libraries, researchers, and publishers in the Internet era.

ebrary was founded by Christopher and Kevin in 1999.

An industry pioneer, ebrary has since grown into a leading e-book provider to libraries and researchers worldwide.

ebrary was acquired by ProQuest in January 2011.
