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); open-access journal, IJID Regions; and our newest journal, IJID One Health.

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

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.


IJID One Health

IJID One Health is an official, open-access journal of ISID.

The journal, published monthly online, will promote original research and perspectives related to One Health. IJID One Health will feature updates, commentaries, and scholarly work from key leaders, visionaries, and organizations using a One Health approach. The aim of IJID OH is to advance scientific knowledge related to the connections between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.

As a platform for the presentation and discussion of scholarly one-health information, the scope of IJID OH traverses domains of human, clinical and veterinary diagnostics, surveillance, epidemiology, public health responses, innovations and interventions. The Journal will function as a repository of of high-quality research which is multi-disciplinary, within countries, regions, and on a global scale. IJID OH will help further our combined efforts as the global community prepares for emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases of international significance while addressing the endemic challenges of today.


A Guide to Infection Control in the Healthcare Setting

A open-access, 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.
