Infection, Disease & Health
The journal aims to be a platform for the publication and dissemination of knowledge in the area of infection and disease causing infection in humans. The journal is quarterly and publishes research, reviews, concise communications, commentary and other articles concerned with infection and disease affecting the health of an individual, organisation or population.
The journal is interested in articles that fundamentally relate to prevention and or control of human infection (not treatment of disease). The original and important articles in the journal investigate, report or discuss infection prevention and control of human infection. These can include clinical, social, epidemiological or public health aspects of infectious disease; policy and planning for the control of infections; zoonoses; and vaccination related to disease in human health. Examples of topics that fall outside the scope of the journal include the evaluation of systemic drug therapy on infection outcomes, the surveillance or reporting of infections that are not healthcare associated or do not have a focus on infection and prevention, and unstructured reviews that do not focus on a specific question or topic of relevance to infection prevention and control. All submissions must contribute new knowledge or advance debate on a topic.
Infection, Disease & Health provides a platform for the publication and dissemination of original knowledge at the nexus of the areas infection, disease and health in a One Health context. One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. One Health encourages and advances the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines-working locally, nationally, and globally-to achieve the best health for people, animals, and our environment. This approach is fundamental because 6 out of every 10 infectious diseases in humans are zoonotic, or spread from animals. We would be expected to report or discuss infection prevention and control; clinical, social, epidemiological or public health aspects of infectious disease; policy and planning for the control of infections; zoonosis; and vaccination related to disease in human health. The Journal seeks to bring together knowledge from all specialties involved in infection research and clinical practice, and present the best work in this ever-changing field.
The audience of the journal includes researchers, clinicians, health workers and public policy professionals concerned with infection, disease and health.
