Advertising in The Microscope

The Microscope is a peer-reviewed, quarterly journal dedicated to microscopy and microanalysis that has been published continuously since 1937. It is our policy to encourage advertising as a service to our readers. It is our view that advertisements provide readers with information regarding new instruments and techniques, impressive applications of microscopy, and other resources and services available to microscopists. We invite advertisements from manufacturers and retailers of microscopes, spectrometers, analytical accessories, sample preparation equipment and image capture and analysis systems. Advertisements are also welcome from materials analysis consulting firms, publishers of scientific literature, and trade organizations.

The Microscope’s readership includes microscopists from a wide variety of industries: pharmaceuticals, law enforcement, forensic science, environmental services, materials analysis consulting firms, academia, conservation, and government labs to name a few. Unlike subscribers of other journals, most of our readers are full-time microscopists or analytical chemists seeking practical information. The subscriber base is approximately 350 in the United States and 50 international, with another 250-350 issues circulated gratis. Many of the subscribers are corporate libraries and small companies whereby the readership is much greater than the circulation. For these reasons, and also for the high quality of The Microscope’s content and appearance we feel the cost to place an advertisement is a good value.
