Epidemiology and Infection
Publishes original reports and reviews on all aspects of infection in humans and animals. Particular emphasis is given to the epidemiology, prevention and control of infectious diseases. The field covered is broad and includes the zoonoses, tropical infections, food hygiene, vaccine studies, statistics and the clinical, social and public-health aspects of infectious disease. Papers covering microbiology and immunology which have an epidemiological relevance are part of this broad field.
Papers come from medical and veterinary scientists worldwide. It has become the key periodical in which to find the latest reports on recently discovered infections and new technology. For those concerned with policy and planning for the control of infections, the papers on mathematical modelling of epidemics caused by historical, current and emergent infections, will be of particular value.
Publishing frequency: 16 times a year
Emerging Infectious Diseases
An open-access journal published monthly by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to promote the global recognition of new and reemerging infectious diseases, and to improve the understanding of factors involved in disease emergence, prevention, and elimination.
The journal relies on a broad international authorship base, and follows recommendations by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. It is published online, and also has a limited press run. The scope includes factors known to influence disease emergence; and the journal reports laboratory and epidemiologic findings. It also provides swift updates of infectious disease trends and research, and developments in antimicrobial drugs, vaccines, and prevention or elimination programs.

BMC Infectious Diseases
An open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of infectious and sexually transmitted diseases in humans, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.
BMC Infectious Diseases is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We do not make editorial decisions on the basis of the interest of a study or its likely impact. Studies must be scientifically valid; for research articles this includes a scientifically sound research question, the use of suitable methods and analysis, and following community-agreed standards relevant to the research field. Specific criteria for other article types can be found in the submission guidelines.
