The Official Hashtags For Every FEMS Journal

In order to increase the searchability and to advance the unique identity of each journal , we encourage authors , editors , and reviewers to coalesce online around the official hashtags for each journal – the Journal Social Media Editors ( JSMEs ) now use these hashtags in their journal article social media posts from the @ FEMSmicro Twitter and Facebook accounts .
The hashtags are the standard journal abbreviations , as found in a reference or citation , unless the journal name is short enough to be used easily on Twitter :
# FEMSMicrobiolEcol # FEMSMicrobiolLett # FEMSMicrobiolRev # PathogDis # FEMSYeastRes # FEMSMicrobes # microLife
