Infection is to be a forum for the presentation and discussion of clinically relevant information on infectious diseases from all over the world. Articles deal with the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases in the outpatient as well as in the inpatient setting. Public health issues of local, regional or international importance related to infectious diseases are featured, as well as progress and problems in hospital epidemiology.
The main contents include original articles describing results of research projects, brief reports on new observations that enhance the knowledge of clinicians, and state-of-the-art reviews on topics that are relevant to physicians diagnosing or treating infectious diseases. Case reports describing new infectious etiologies or clinical manifestations are also welcome. Finally, the correspondence section is open to readers who want to respond to articles published in Infection or to succinctly present information to the general readership.
The content covers several fields, as represented in the various sections of the board of editors, which range from clinical infectious diseases in general to pediatric infectious diseases, clinical microbiology and diagnostics, healthcare-associated infections, antimicrobial use, healthcare quality, fungal infections, and viral infections, including the broad fields of HIV and viral hepatitis. Parasitic infections, international health and travel medicine are among the journal’s newest focus areas.
