Microscopy Special Issues and Special Features
Microscopy promotes research combined with any type of microscopy techniques, applied to both life and material sciences.
The following special issues and special sections are freely available to read online.
Special Issue: Single-Particle Cryo-Electron Microscopy
Volume 65, Issue 1 (February, 2016)
This special issue intends to provide an overview of the current state of the various aspects of single-particle cryo-EM. We aim to provide a snapshot of the current state of the art of single-particle cryo-EM and to share some of the spectacular successes and the excitement that have convinced so many structural biologists to now start using single-particle cryo-EM for their own studies.
Special Feature: Super Resolution Microscopy
Volume 64, Issue 4 (August, 2015)
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2014 was awarded to the three inventors of Super Resolution Microscopy. In this special feature, we received technological reviews from leading experts in this innovative field, including accounts of recent developments and applications of STED and structured illumination microscopy.
Special Issue: Challenges to Connectomics
Volume 64, Issue 1 (February, 2015)
This special issue is dedicated to the recent advancement of methodology and knowledge in the field of neuroscience, in particular, structural and functional connectomes of animal brains (including humans). The scope of this issue includes a wide range of imaging technologies such as advancement in multiple aspects of light microscopic observation and electron microscopic advancement in imaging of unprecedentedly large volume.
Inaugural Issue of Microscopy
Volume 62, Issue 1 (February, 2013)
In 2013, the Journal of Electron Microscopy (JEM) , which included research papers in both biologic and non-biologic fields, changed its name to Microscopy . While maintaining the fundamental view of JEM, Microscopy redefined its position to expand and deepen its coverage of the research fields related to microscopy.
