The Society produces three journals, published by Elsevier. These are available to BMS Members at a discount, or directly from Elsevier.  

Details of the cost of the journals with BMS membership are available here.


Fungal Biology is an international scientific journal devoted to many aspects of fungal biology including biochemistry, biodeterioration, biotechnology, cell biology, developmental biology, disease control, ecology, environment, evolution, fungal physiology, genetics, genomics, geomycology, insect pathology, medical mycology, molecular genetics, mutualistic interactions, physiology, plant pathology, secondary metabolites, taxonomy and systematics, and techniques.



Fungal Biology Reviews was launched in 2007 and is the first journal to focus on high quality reviews in fungal biology. The journal aims to publish reviews from all fields of fungal biology, whether fundamental or applied, including fungal diversity, ecology, evolution, physiology and ecophysiology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, cell biology, interactions (symbiosis, pathogenesis etc), environmental aspects, biotechnology and taxonomy. It covers all organisms that have either historically or recently been recognized as fungi, including lichen-fungi, microsporidia, oomycetes, slime moulds, straminipiles, and yeasts.



Fungal Ecology is the first scientific journal to specialize in fungal ecology. The scope of the journal is broad, and publishes articles on all aspects of fungal ecology, including the following (not exclusive): population dynamics; adaptation; evolution; role in ecosystem functioning, nutrient cycling, decomposition, carbon allocation; ecophysiology; intra- and inter-specific mycelial interactions, fungus-plant (pathogens, mycorrhizas, lichens, endophytes), fungus-invertebrate and fungus-microbe interaction; genomics and (evolutionary) genetics; conservation and biodiversity; remote sensing; bioremediation and biodegradation; quantitative and computational aspects - modelling, indicators, complexity, informatics.

Field Mycology


Field Mycology was launched in 2000 and provides high-quality articles for field mycologists and conservationists. It aims to provide content for both the beginner and the knowledgeable field mycologist. Although the articles are principally about British fungi, the publkication also includes articles concerning many other countries of the world. The articles are often accompanied by photographs, particularly of poorly documented species.  In 2022, the BMS took publication of Field Mycology in-house, having previously published though Elsevier.
