The International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID) communicates and disseminates information relevant to the epidemiology, clinical evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and control of infectious diseases, with an emphasis on those diseases most prevalent in less-developed countries. Contributions to IJID include reports of original clinical and laboratory research, articles focusing on epidemiology and preventive medicine, public health reports on local and regional issues of international interest, reports of clinical trials, reviews, and occasional case reports. Of particular interest are articles related to international collaborative efforts; models and studies of practical and cost-effective interventions for the control and treatment of infectious diseases; epidemiological, laboratory, and clinical evaluations of infectious-disease outbreaks resulting from natural or human-induced disasters; and laboratory and diagnostic methods applicable in facilities with minimal laboratory and clinical resources. The Journal seeks to enhance understanding of the medical and cultural factors that affect infectious diseases throughout the world and to provide insight into the prevention, treatment, and management of infectious diseases. IJID is a bimonthly publication of the International Society for Infectious Diseases.
