PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases is dedicated to research that addresses the neglected, the forgotten, and the under-resourced, in order to improve the health and prosperity of all the world’s people. We work alongside researchers spanning every continent who are deeply rooted in under-resourced communities. We amplify their voices through Open Access and Open Science practices to make this knowledge accessible and inspire greater change far beyond immediate borders. PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases publishes research devoted to the pathology, epidemiology, prevention, treatment and control of the neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), as well as relevant public health and policy. We define NTDs as poverty-promoting infectious diseases that primarily occur in rural areas and poor urban areas of low-income and middle-income countries, but can also affect specific communities within high-income countries. Their impact on child health and development, pregnancy, and worker productivity, as well as their stigmatizing features, prevent equity and economic stability. The journal focuses on human disease, human health, translational, clinical, and epidemiological studies. Below is a non-exhaustive list of topics we are currently interested in. We are open to conversations with our communities about scope adjustments that reflect their changing needs. All aspects of these diseases are considered, including: Pathogenesis, Clinical features, Drug administration and treatment, Diagnosis, Epidemiology, Vector biology, Vaccinology and prevention, Demographic, ecological and social determinants, Public health and policy aspects (including cost-effectiveness analyses).
