ISID's publications seek to strengthen the specialty of Infectious Diseases globally, support the ongoing professional development of Infectious Disease practitioners and improve clinical practice. We advance these goals through our online, open-access Guide to Infection Control in the Healthcare Setting; our peer-reviewed, open access journal - the International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID), and our official, open access journal, IJID Regions.
A Guide to Infection Control in the Healthcare Setting
A free, online resource on the principles and interventions needed to reduce the rate of healthcare associated infections.
The science of infection prevention has grown in importance over the last 30 years and is in constant evolution. Written and edited by international leaders and front-line practitioners from around the world, the Guide summarizes the most up to date principles, interventions, and strategies for maximizing the reduction of healthcare-associated infections. The chapters are intended to facilitate the implementation of effective infection prevention and control measures across different resource levels; improve quality of care; minimize risk; save lives; and reduce costs.
International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID)
The International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID) is the official publication of ISID.
It offers open access to peer-reviewed infectious diseases research, case reports, and clinical trial updates covering epidemiology, clinical diagnosis, treatment, and control of infectious diseases. In addition, it seeks to enhance the reader’s understanding of the medical and cultural factors that affect infectious diseases and provides insight into their prevention, treatment, and management.
An open access publishing fee payable by research authors or research funders, enables the Journal to be published online each month for no subscription fee, making it available to infectious disease researchers and clinicians throughout the world, irrespective of their location or resources.
IJID Regions is an official, open access journal of ISID.
It aims to publish high-quality, evidence-based infectious disease science of regional interest and relevance. It will enhance visibility of regional research with focus on those infectious diseases that are common in under-resourced countries and settings. It will also publish research that can be utilized by national and regional health clinicians, scientists, health systems, and public health policy makers.
IJID Regions focuses on clinical infectious diseases, clinical epidemiology and public health. It focuses on publishing original clinical and laboratory-based research, together with reports of clinical trials and reviews dealing with the epidemiology, clinical diagnosis, treatment, and control of infectious diseases.
